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).
We’re entering week two and I’ve done quite a lot of reading, but there’s still more I can get through!
Currently Reading: Under the Painted Sky by Stacey Lee
Books Read: 5
- Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai
- The Stonekeeper (Amulet #1) by Kazu Kibuishi
- How Tia Lola Came to
VisitStay by Julia Alvarez
- The Princess Saves Herself in this One by Amanda Lovelace
- End of Days (Penryn and the End of Days #3) by Susan Ee
I really enjoyed How Tia Lola Came to
Visit Stay. I’m a tia, so it was fun to read about a kid’s experience with their tia living with them. I finally finished End of Days. It took me two years to finish this series, but I also wasn’t in a rush to read it. But I’m glad to finally have it done and finished.
- When the Stars Go Blue by Caridad Barbara Ferrer
- The Young Elites by Marie Lu
- I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai
- ARC – The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
I won’t be reading just these books this month. I have some ARCs I need to read, but my #readthemargin TBR takes precedent over the other books I need to read.
Again, shout out to Aentee and her upcoming 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!
Are you taking part in #readthemargin or other reading challenges this month? Will you be planning to take part in the Dumbledore’s Army Readathon? What are your reading goals for the month?
