Want green card, will marry

Updated BLM: Books to Learn from this Month (and beyond)

#blacklivesmatter and one of the best ways to respect and uphold that is to learn. Learn from books written by POC for non-POC. Read books on the black experience, on white privilege, on immigrant perspectives. Read. Read and learn all you can, of experiences different from your own.

Sadie

Sadie wasn't the most original book, the mystery of the killer wasn't the most profound, and the characters are forgettable. Still, if you want a quicker, generic mystery, this is a good enough read.
