Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine
Kelsey’s Goodreads rating: 5 of 5 stars
Heady, powerful, necessary lyric about race.
Old Man’s War by John Scalzi
Christine’s Goodreads rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’m a big fan of Scalzi’s work and I actually really enjoyed this! It wasn’t along the lines of my typical read (what with all the aliens, war and, killing) but I thought it was great.
