What I Read: June ’17

March: Books One, Two and Three by John Lewis: Crucial, critical reading. I loved seeing this story and while I would not call myself a ‘graphic novel gal’ there is something about this medium that really serves this story. It is one thing to read words describing the Jim Crow era and it is another to visually see that violence – and yet another to have lived it.

You’re Doing A Great Job by Biz Ellis and Theresa Thorn: I read this in an evening and it was quick and pithy. Worth checking out from your library if you love the podcast.

*Not Your Sidekick by C. B. Lee: This was loaned to me by a friend for Read Harder and it was an interesting and quick read. “Welcome to Andover, where superpowers are common, but internships are complicated. Just ask high school nobody, Jessica Tran. Despite her heroic lineage, Jess is resigned to a life without superpowers and is merely looking to beef up her college applications when she stumbles upon the perfect (paid!) internship—only it turns out to be for the town’s most heinous supervillain.” (via). I’m glad I read it – it isn’t something I would have ever picked up on my own but was a fun read.
