LAST - Stamped from the Beginning. I still have a chapter + the epilogue left to read but it's safe to say this is a 5 star read. It is more on the academic side of non-fiction and it deals with a lot of information about racial prejudice spanning through centuries. Kendi's work is outstanding and opened my eyes to a loads of issues I had no idea about - especially about assimilationists and how their way of thinking has done more damage than good. This should be mandatory reading for everybody. It took me 2 months to get through it because I wanted to soak everything in. Most pages are highlighted and annotated. This is a must read.
NOW - Hamnet & Mexican Gothic. I am halfway through both of them and enjoyed both. I'm typing this as I read another chapter of Hamnet that brought me to tears. O'Farrell's writing is a dream. And with regards with Mexican Gothic, I can say I am intrigued and disgusted at some scenes at the same time. Really atmospheric novel. Cannot wait to see how the story unfolds.
NEXT - Rage of Dragons. I forgot to get the book for the picture but it is the novel I am planning on picking up first because I joined Busy Bee Bookclub and that's the pick for August. I've heard nothing but amazing things and despite not reading much military fantasy I cannot wait to read it.
