Buzzwordathon Yearly Challenge – January 2021

Starting the first book of 2021, I’m participating in #buzzwordathon 2021 for the whole year. January word is Dream, so I chose Dreamland Burning by #jenniferlatham I heard this was a very good story that deals with race and the Jim Crow laws. I was happy I found this though my library, another goal of mines is to use my library more this year. I’ll post my full tbr for buzzwordathon soon.
