Currently Reading:

Roots: The Saga of an American Family by Alex HaleyI don’t have as much time to read this week as I would like, and so far, I have only made it to page 140. Roots is a story spanning generations about a man – and his descendents – who is captured in 18th century Gambia and sold into slavery in the American colonies. I am 9 pages away from the moment where he is kidnapped; Kunta Kinte is currently a young Mandinka man enjoying life in his village. I hate what is to come for him.

Just finished:

 

Sailor Moon, Volume 1 by Naoko Takeuchi – My daughter is reading these as well. Good, cheesy fun.

The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness – You can find my review here.

What’s Next:

 

A Darker Shade of Magic and A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab – I’ve heard that books published under Victoria Schwab are YA, and book published under V.E. Schwab are adult, so I am curious what sets these apart from her YA work and makes them adult fantasy fiction.

What is coming up next on your reading list?

    • The New Jim Crow was excellent, and it’s actually quite serendipitous that I chose to read Roots as a follow-up. I will definitely be posting a review for the Schwab books once I read them! I have seen them mentioned everywhere as well.

  1. Oh oh I am a huge fan of VE Schwab!! *flails for eternity* I’ve read 5 of her books and I actually like her adult ones better, despite usually being a huge YA fan!😂 But I do love how she writes both. :’) Anyway. Enjoy!! So much magic and sass and excitement!

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!
