January Wrap-Up and February TBR

January wasn’t a phenomenal reading month but I did OK

Cautionary Fables and Fairytales: Europe edited by Kel McDonald
The first book I finished in 2017, it’s an anthology of fairytales, some more traditional and others with a fun spin. A quick read I really enjoyed.

The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney
A darling of 2016, it deals with family, money, and all the fun complications of life at a variety of ages.

The Day of the Donald by Andrew Shaffer
A ridiculous look at what Trump’s presidency could have looked like if it was more funny and less sad. Definitely provided some much needed laughs.

House of M by Brian Michael Bendis
A Marvel Universe classic I found to be incredibly fascinating.

Stranger Here by Jen Larsen
A weight-loss surgery memoir that skimmed over Larsen’s troubled relationship with food and self-loathing. Compelling if you’ve ever been or are fat but not earth shattering.

February TBR

Negroland
It’s black history month so I’m going to read a memoir of a black person’s history.

This Is Why We Broke Up
A graphic story about a break-up

Good Riddance
A graphic memoir about divorce

Don’t Shoot the Dog
Because weddings are really friggin’ expensive, I won’t be diving into the world of professionally working with puppers until at least April. That gives me a little extra time to do some homework. I’ve heard from an actual dog traininer what a good resource this is.

I plan on trying to check off more categories in February but I don’t know which ones they’ll be. Hopefully that will make for an interesting wrap-up in 4 weeks.
