February 2023 TBR Additions

Just under the deadline. Another round of catching up. These titles aren’t new to the world, but they may be new to you.

Moon Witch, Spider King

By Marlon James

From the publisher:

The second book in James’s Dark Star trilogy. Part adventure tale, part chronicle of an indomitable woman who bows to no man, it is a fascinating novel that explores power, personality, and the places where they overlap.

The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story

From the publisher:

This is a book that speaks directly to our current moment, contextualizing the systems of race and caste within which we operate today. It reveals long-glossed-over truths around our nation’s founding and construction–and the way that the legacy of slavery did not end with emancipation, but continues to shape contemporary American life.

The Actual Star

By Monica Byrne

From the publisher:

David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas meets Octavia Butler’s Earthseed series, as acclaimed author Monica Byrne (The Girl in the Road) crafts an unforgettable piece of speculative fiction about where humanity came from, where we are now, and where we’re going–and how, in every age, the same forces that drive us apart also bind us together.
