Dumbledore Army Readathon Wrap Up

I had an amazing experience with #DAReadathon, honestly can't think of when I was this committed to a Team (Gryffindor) and stayed motivated but also had so much fun!
I read 5 out of 7 of my original TBR and read 10 books that are eligible here. Here's my brief rundown:

TOTAL NUMBER OF POINTS: 378 (TEAM GRYFFINDOR)


Humorous, poignant, perceptive, and full of grace, Kathleen Collins’s stories masterfully blend the quotidian and the profound in a personal, intimate way, exploring deep, far-reaching issues—race, gender, family, and sexuality—that shape the ordinary moments in our lives. (Synopsis from Goodreads)

Reviews:

The unforgettable New York Times best seller begins with the story of two half-sisters, separated by forces beyond their control: one sold into slavery, the other married to a British slaver. Written with tremendous sweep and power, Homegoing traces the generations of family who follow, as their destinies lead them through two continents and three hundred years of history, each life indeliably drawn, as the legacy of slavery is fully revealed in light of the present day. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
