Y’all already know how I feel about February.

Also, this is a February in Drumpf’s U.S. of A. So, if we’re not all dead from nuclear war, unregulated gun violence, non-potable water, smog inhalation, untreated health issues, police brutality, or just plain old embarrassment, here are the books that I’m going to read during this (blessedly) short month.

Kindred by Octavia Butler

I’ve never read any Octavia Butler and I’m so excited! The premise of this sounds absolutely amazing.

Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy by Heather Ann Thompson

Okay, not exactly cheerful, but in these uncertain times, knowing the history of revolts (and how they are reported in history) is both useful and interesting.

The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America by Erik Larson

This was one of those books that so many people talked about– which made me want to wait out the buzz before I read it. I don’t know why I’m like this either.

The Chicago World’s Fair + H.H. Holmes (America’s first serial killer) = good fit for my reading tastes.

The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth: Entrepreneurship for Weirdos, Misfits, and World Dominators by Chris Brogan

My dream is to someday open a bookstore and since I don’t have a business degree or much retail experience, I’m going the route of autodidacticism.

Read along with me, or let me know what you think of these books (no spoilers!) in the comments.

One thought on “The 52 Books Project: February

  1. They all sound amazing but I have to say I’m really interested in The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America by Erik Larson. And why? Mostly because of this: H.H. Holmes (America’s first serial killer.)
