May Reading List

Favorite Book Of The Month: Circe

I was thoroughly confused when I started reading this book, but by the time I finished this book, I was elated. Madeline Miller’s storytelling of Circe ( the daughter of Helios and Perse, yes like in the Odyssey) is enchanting, terrifying and complex. If you are at all interested in mythology and family tragedies this needs to be on your list.

Laugh Out Loud Funny: Born A Crime

Trevor Noah’s memoir of growing up in South Africa will have you laughing out loud. Not only will you learn so much about South African culture, history and superstitions. His story is outrageous and will make you appreciate his comedy even more than you probably already do.

Better Than Expected: An American Marriage

When asking for book recommendations, this read popped up multiple times from friends in my circle. It is a representation of black love, the brokenness of our penal system, and unfortunately tells the story and effects of losing a loved one to that system that all too many people can relate to.
