August Reading Wrap-Up

I had a slower month in August, but every book on this list was a great read that kept my attention. My favorite book I read this month is The Parted Earth by Anjali Enjeti. It made me feel so many emotions and I have recommended it to so many people.

The Help

By Kathryn Stockett

This book is part of my Black Historical Fiction Decades reading challenge, which you can learn more about by clicking that link. The Help is set in the 1960s before Jim Crow laws, and tells the story of two Black maids working in white households in the South and how they are treated.

King's Cage

by Victoria Aveyard

King's Cage is the third book in the Red Queen series. The first half of it details Mare's captivity, and the second half was setting up for the final book of the series. I honestly thought this book seemed like a filler, and it took me a little bit longer to get through it. I actually thought the series was a trilogy until I got to the 90% mark and none of their problems were solved.

America on Fire

by Elizabeth Hinton

This non-fiction book talks about the War on Crime, particularly in Black communities such as Cairo, Harrisburg, Newark, and more. It details multiple instances of police brutality in Black communities that are policed in a way white communities are not.

The Parted Earth

by Anjali Enjeti

This book is a Partition-centered story that transcends almost eighty years. In 1947, the government announced the separation of two countries: a Hindu-dominant India and a Muslim-dominant Pakistan. This set in motion the greatest mass movement the world has ever scene, and an extremely violent period in time. Every family has a Partition story, and this is one of them.
