Hi Reader! Happy new week. If there is a genre I read purely for myself and vibes, meaning I barely review it, it’s classics. For some reason they give me pure pleasure, well some, while I am reading them, and I realized there is a small group of people who are like me too. So here are the 15 classics I read in 2022:
- The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
My favorite book by Toni Morrison so far. Read my review here.
- Sula by Toni Morrison
An exploration on relationships and how they inform our decisions. Read my review here.
