1. Stop reading books I would rate two stars or lower.
2. Read more books about people of color.
This is the first book that I rated five stars this year (and if the past is any indication, one of the only books I will give five stars this year). I saw it in the library and checked it out on a whim. I think I read about it one time and thought it sounded interesting. It did not disappoint.
I know technically the Doctor is the same character despite having gone through eleven regenerations on Doctor Who, but you know you have favorites.
