Reading Overview

So, I read a lot of books in the past couple months, and I'm in a bit over my head. But I'm going to try to break it down with this chronological list, and some six word reviews.

20. The Lonely Polygamist by Brady Udall



Brings (polygamous) Mormons mainstream; hilariously appropriate.

21. On the Same Track: How Schools Can Join the Twenty-First Century Struggle Against Resegregation by Carol Corbett Burris



Tracking is evil: get on board.

25. The Creation of Eve by Lynn Cullen



Renaissance woman artist serves queen: awesome.

26. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman



Surprise, she's a half-dragon! Not.

28. Kindred by Octavia Butler



Grueling reflection on slavery: must-read.

29. Course Correction by Ginny Gilder



Rowing, divorce, Olympics, and LGBT memoir.

30. Earthly Joys by Philippa Gregory



Gardening and enclosure in Jacobean England.

31. Brazen by Katherine Longshore



YA done right in Tudor England.

32. Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman



Surprise, they're all half-dragons! Not.
