February Reads

Terrorist Assemblages: Homonationalism in Queer Times by Jasbir K. Puar
George and Rue by George Elliot Clarke
The Luminaries by Elenor Catton
Kindred by Octavia E. Butler
Brown Girl in the Ring by Nalo Hopkinson
The Island of Doctor Moreau by H. G. Wells

Another month, another attempt to read something other than cis straight white males. I read Wells for school, and then wrote a pretty scathing article on it, so I think that mitigates it. Only one white women (Catton) and that novel ate up most of the month. It was pretty damn good, though the first two thirds were far superior to the rushed final third.  Two of the five books are Canadian (Clarke and Hopkinson) so that's something. Kindred was especially terrific and I'm writing on it for another course.
