[Pictured is a pile of books on my grey reading chair: Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel, The Queen of Attolia, Salvage the Bones, Ice Wolves, Internment, Home Fire, On the Come Up, What the Eyes Don’t See, and Pachinko.]
I thought I would give you all a little update on how I’m doing on the Reading Women 2019 Challenge since I haven’t posted reviews on here in months so there’s no way you could know lol. I do always post pretty regularly on Instagram so if you don’t already you can always follow me over there! My username is AuntBreESQReads!
You can find the post where I list all of the prompts along with some books I was thinking of using for it here. I’m only listing prompts that I have completed and I’m only going to list the first book I completed per prompt, even if more qualify. However, I might move things around later since I’m making it my personal goal to read one book per prompt but some books will actually qualify for several prompts. Anyway, without further ado:
Prompt #3 is a book by an author from Nigeria or New Zealand and for that I used The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris.
Prompt #5 is a children’s book and I read Ice Wolves by Amie Kaufman.
Prompt #6 is a multi-generational family saga and I read Pachinko by Min Jin Lee.
Prompt #7 is a book featuring a woman in science and What the Eyes Don’t See by Mona Hana-Attisha.
Prompt #9 is a novella, for which I read Passing by Nella Larsen.
Prompt #11 is a book featuring a religion other than my own, so Internment by Samira Ahmed fits because Islam features prominently.
Prompt #13 is a myth retelling and I read The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller.
Prompt #15 is a book written by a South Asian author and I read Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie.
Prompt #17 is a book from the 2018 Reading Women Award shortlist and I read All You Can Ever Know by Nicole Chung.
Prompt #18 is a romance or love story and I read Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan.
Prompt #23 is any book from a series and the first one I read this year was The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner.
Prompt #24 is a YA book by a Woman of Color and I read On the Come Up by Angie Thomas.
Prompt #25 is a bonus prompt to read a book by Jesmyn Ward and I read Salvage the Bones.
So, I have completed 13 out of 26 of the prompts at halfway through the year, which makes me right on track!
How are you doing on your reading goals for the year?
