Look, February is a short month, okay? And I got ahead of myself in January, so it balances up. My total this month is a slightly underwhelming 5, but that's 14 in total which is aaaaalmost on target. Here's what I read:
- We Should All be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche (alright, it's not technically a 'book' - more of an essay, but it's still worth reading)
- Shakespeare and the Arts of Language by Russ McDonald
- The Underground Railroad by Coleson Whitehead
- Station Eleven by Emily St James Mandel
- The Anti-Inauguration by Naomi Klein, Jeremy Scahill, Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, Anand Gopal, and Owen Jones
Favourite: Shakespeare and the Arts of Language because SHAKESPEARE and LINGUISTICS and a whole chapter on PUNS!
Least favourite: Station Eleven because I like my dystopia less focused on Hollywood lifestyles and more on gritty realism.
Next up: The Power by Naomi Alderman, awwww yisssss.
Oh, and we also did another video update, check it:
