An American Marriage by Tayari Jones
“Love makes a place in your body, rerouting all your blood vessels, throbbing right alongside of your heart. When it’s gone, nothing is whole again.”
Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge
A Thousand Miles to Freedom: My Escape from North Korea by Eunsun Kim
The Line Becomes A River: Dispatches from the Border by Francisco Cantú
The Queen of Hearts by Kimmery Martin
This one has been my most recent read. As a die-hard fan of Grey’s Anatomy and a wife of to a medical resident, I was ecstatic when I found out @saltwaterreads selected The Queen of Hearts for their March read. I’m not that far into it, but so far, the author does a great job of capturing the lives of working women that try to juggle both work and family. The friendship between Zadie and Emma makes me feel extremely nostalgic for all of my friends back home. I can’t wait to finish and join the upcoming discussion!
