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
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
- 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.
- 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.
