Dust Tracks on a Road
Dust Tracks on a Road - Zora Neale Hurston

Zora Neale Hurston approaches this moving memoir like a master storyteller, with wonderfully lyrical prose that reminded me a lot of her novel Their Eyes Were Watching God. Loved it.

Just Can't Do It

I've put down two of the Kimani Romance books on my tbr for the month. They are just too formulaic and one wasn't very well written. When I was just getting back into reading I could read two of these a day. Now they're like most YA books to me, redundant. I will have to change things up. I will continue with the Black History Month theme but will most likely switch up and out the books.
