The only way I’m able to keep my ear tuned into current events without losing my mind is by balancing the news with a healthy dose of fiction reading.
January was a huge reading month for me, mainly because I needed lots of hearty distractions (wonder why). I finished 10 books.
Since I’ve been reading more than ever these past few months, I’ve tried to be conscious of reading a diverse group of authors, stories, perspectives and characters. With February being Black History Month, I thought it would be a great time to read some of the Black authors and books I’ve been wanting to get through for a while.
