#readthemargin Goals, TBR, & Update

Happy Tuesday! This month I’m taking part in a month long reading challenge called #readthemargin. Created by Manda (ladybookmad). It’s a month long endeavor to read literature created by marginalized authors.

The rundown: reading challenge takes place between Dec 1 – Jan 1, 2017. Read only marginalized authors (which include: women, POC, religious minorities, people with disabilities, Queer/LGBTQIA community).

I was excited to see this reading challenge come around because it would kick myself into gear and finally try and read some books that were on my TBR for awhile and thankfully they were all available through my library system. Thank you, Library. You have saved me again.

Books Read: 3

  • Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai
  • The Stonekeeper (Amulet #1) by Kazu Kibuishi
  • How Tia Lola Came to Visit Stay by Julia Alvarez

I’m about halfway done with End of Days. Next reads will probably be When the Stars Go Blue or Under A Painted Sky since they’re not part of a series. I think I’ll start I Am Malala soon too and gradually make my way through it during the month. Speaking of Malala, if you haven’t already you should watch the documentary, He Named Me Malala. It’s about Malala, her father, and their stance on education and dealing with the aftermath of her attempted assassination. It’s available on Hulu.

Are you taking part in #readthemargin or any other reading challenges this month? Also, I want to link to Aentee’s read-a-thon, Dumbledore’s Army Readathon. It begins Jan 1 – Jan 15 and focuses on diverse (especially #ownvoices) books. Be sure to check it out!
