Coronavirus: One Year

I’ve reflected on the ongoing pandemic a couple times, and now that we’ve passed the one-year mark, it seems an update is due. Cautiously optimistic is about how things feel.

We made it through the second wave and the rising death toll in the fall and winter. Now the vaccines are rolling out—truly a miracle how quickly that happened—but it’s a race between vaccine rollout and deadlier, more contag

The Fall of Koli by M.R. Carey
Rate this book
Clear rating
What a great conclusion to this post-apocalyptic trilogy. I haven't read a trilogy in a while that I love the whole way through, and this is one. The voice is so unique and good, the world is so different and well drawn out, and the characters are ju ...more

The Latehomecomer by Kao Kalia Yang
Rate this book
Clear rating
A memoir that follows a Hmong family from fleeing war in Laos through refugee camps and to adjusting to life in the U.S. It's fascinating seeing the journey and learning Yang's perspective. But it wasn't as gripping as her Song Poet memoir. ...more

Taste of Marrow by Sarah Gailey
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is one of those sequels where it's really not necessary, but it's such a fun world you want to go back and do it again. Unfortunately, there's not much of a story the second time around. It is fun to revisit the world, and while a few loose thre ...more

River of Teeth by Sarah Gailey
Rate this book
Clear rating
A fascinating alternate history where the U.S. imported hippos for the meat (apparently a real proposal) and they replaced horses and cattle, I guess? It's a weird take on the Western, but it's a lot of fun. Could have used a little more something—se ...more

Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse
Rate this book
Clear rating
A fantasy epic rooted in the pre-Columbian cultures of the Americas, which gives it a unique and fresh feel. I'm usually not that big on fantasy, but this one was gripping. It took a little while to get going, but once it did, I was along for the rid ...more

Intriguing story about a high school student who creates a multiplayer online card game that celebrates Black culture and is inadvertently accused of racism. The story goes off the rails a bit in that the teen keeps this entire online world a secret ...more

Out Past The Stars by K.B. Wagers
Rate this book
Clear rating
I love the character of Hail Bristol and I love the breakneck pace of K.B. Wagers' writing. But I hate the way this series just screams so fast that there's never any time to slow down and catch up to what's happening. This the third installment of t ...more

A Test of Courage by Justina Ireland
Rate this book
Clear rating
I'll be honest: I did not have high hopes for this one, especially when I saw it was a middle grade novel. I liked Justina Ireland's Dread series, but I thought her other two Star Wars novels were just OK—and both were also middle grade. But I was pl ...more

“The whole point of all this reading is to learn and grow. So, finally, talk about what you read. Think and reflect on the things you read. Process the ideas. Jot down the questions. Books stimulate thought, so take advantage of it and write it down.”
Kevin D. Hendricks, 137 Books in One Year: How to Fall in Love With Reading

“When the song of the angels is stilled, When the star in the sky is gone, When the kings and princes are home, When the shepherds are back with their flock, The work of Christmas begins: To find the lost, To heal the broken, To feed the hungry, To release the prisoner, To rebuild the nations, To bring peace among brothers, To make music in the heart. Howard Thurman, the late author, professor and civil rights leader”
