There are a few YA titles I want to read too, but I’d rather tackle this list first. You’ll notice that I’m missing non-fiction and that is on purpose. I don’t read a lot of non-fiction in general, but especially not during the summer. However, I would like to read Raquel Cepeda’s memoir and Mark Anothny Neal’s newest book on Black masculinity, but if I’m pressed for time, I’ll read them in the fall.
Do you have any recommendations for me?
It’s finals week! I have a monstrous paper to attend to, and despite all my dabbling with magic spells, the paper won’t write itself. I guess I have to write it. I probably won’t be able to attend any of the fun evening events at #MLADLA13 because I’ll be busy writing. Ah well. See ya on the other side of this ten pager.
