Week 3 Reading & More Reading // #readthemargin 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).

We’re entering week three! I got more reading done in week two. I finished two books and started I Am Malala. I did want to make some more progress with that one, but haven’t made much of a dent.

Currently Reading: I Am Malala, The Young Elites, (and an ARC not part of #readthemargin)

Books Read: 7

  • Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai
  • The Stonekeeper (Amulet #1) by Kazu Kibuishi
  • How Tia Lola Came to Visit Stay 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
  • Under A Painted Sky by Stacey Lee
  • When the Stars Go Blue by Caridad Barbara Ferrer

Last week’s favorite read was Under A Painted Sky by Stacey Lee. I love the cover. Samantha (Sammy) and Annamae (Andy) are great characters. I really enjoyed reading this going west journey. It was a survival, but also finding one’s own self type of story, which I liked.

#readthemargine TBR: 

  • 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 can’t believe how much reading I’ve actually accomplished (the perks of having little to no responsibilities I guess *cries*).

I’m looking forward to really getting into The Young Elites. I’ve only heard good things about it.

Don’t forget, you can keep up with my updates on Goodreads and Twitter!
