Book tastes

I like literary fiction, historical fiction, and short stories collections. I prefer books written by women, POC, and LGBTQA authors. I enjoy nonfiction books about Renaissance era European monarchy (love those scandalous queens of yore), books about books, the evolution of the English language, travel, and feminism. This year I loved Transcription (Kate Atkinson), Florida (Lauren Groff), Circe (Madeline Miller), The Library Book (Susan Orlean), Home Fire (Kamila Shamsie), and We Were Feminists Once (Andi Zeisler).

Don't get this!

Romance, thriller, horror, YA, books in a series

Other notes

My LT catalog is up to date. When I’m looking for inspiration, I go to books listed on the Women’s Prize for Fiction, @thereadingwomen, and @mariskreizman.
