Today, as you may or may not know, is the 23rd of June. It’s only the 23rd of June once a year, so let’s make it count, yes? Yes.
My summer officially started on the 19th, and so I figure it’s about time for Fee’s Summer Reading List (which is still open to suggestions, by the way, guys)!
Fee’s Summer Reading List (WHICH IS STILL OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS GIMME YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS GUYS)
In no particular order:
- The Autobiography of Malcolm X as told to Alex Haley. This is actually my current read, so I’m carrying it over into the Summer Reading. I’m almost done with it guys! I’ll probably write a review or something on it because it’s kind of life-changing.
- Bitch: In Praise of Difficult Women by Elizabeth Wurtzel
- Les Miserable by Victor Hugo
- Dear White America by Tim Wise
- Race Matters by Dr. Cornel West
- Black Like Me by John Griffin
- The New Jim Crowe by Michelle Alexander
- When You’d Gone by Maggie O’Ferrel, as recommended by Sarah Fish
- A Corner of White by Jacklyn Moriarty, as recommended by Sarah Fish
- The Mission by Jason Myers, as recommended by Sarah Fish
- Dead End by Jason Myers, as recommended by Sarah Fish
- Echo by Francesca Lia Block – who is an amazing writer by the way. If you haven’t read Dangerous Angels: The Weetzie Bat Books, please do. They’re beautiful and minimalistic and it’s amazing. This was also recommended by Sarah Fish.
