January 2020 Wrap-Up + Haul

Well, my January TBR was an ambitious one and I do have to say that I absolutely failed miserably. I thought I was going to smash out of a bunch of books over winter break but that didn't happen, and now it's already February and I read all of two books in January. One was a bit disappointing and the other was a slave narrative for class that hit me really hard in the feels. Hopefully February will be a better month reading wise, but let's just dive into my wrap-up.

Title: Scavenge the Stars
Author: Tara Sim
Rating: n/a--DNF
Scavenge the Stars (Scavenge the Stars, #1)

Title: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave
Author: Frederick Douglass
Rating: n/a -- read for class
Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave by Frederick Douglass
My professor said one day in class that Frederick Douglass was one of the best writers in American history and that his narrative is one of the best novels out there. I'd have to agree. I'm not going to say much on it since I had to read it for class, but it was a very heartbreaking, eye-opening, and inspiring story.


Because my wrap-up was so short this month and I didn't get that many books, I thought I'd just briefly list the four books I did get here!
  • Windwitch by Susan Dennard
    • The hardcovers recently underwent a cover change and I wanted to get the original covers before they got too rare and when I saw this at my local used store I couldn't resist
  • Writing Fiction by Janet Burroway
    • I had to get this for my Fiction Writing class this semester 
  • Say You'll Remember Me by Katie McGarry
    • I adore all of Katie's books that I've read so far and this is one of the ones that I need to get reading soon so when I saw a signed copy for cheap I decided to snag it
  • Our Nig by Harriet E. Wilson
    • This is one that I had to get for my African American Literature class this semester
I didn't get that many, and I don't anticipate getting very many in February either. I've been super busy and haven't had the time to read, and if I'm not reading voraciously I also don't have as big of an urge to buy books.
