Thanks to Carrie Gelson at There is a Book for That, I have read quite a few titles from my TBR. I appreciate this reading challenge she offers each year.
At the beginning of the year I chose the 24 titles pictured above. So far I've been able to read 21 of them (all but the last three in the image above). I enjoyed every single one of them so far. Some of the standouts have been:
Want - a fabulous sci-fi by Cindy Pon set in Taipei
When Dimple Met Rishi - a lovely romance by Sandhya Menon
Amina's Voice - a sweet middle grade book by Hena Khan about family, community, and being yourself
Bad Feminist - an excellent nonfiction collection of essays by Roxane Gay about feminism
Juliet Takes a Breath - by Gabby Rivera, this novel shows us an awesome human learning, growing and making mistakes.
Here We Are: Feminism for the Real World - Kelly Jensen collected a very diverse and interesting set of essays and other creative formats that share various aspects of feminism.
Of the final books, I will likely read the Misty Copeland book, but Shine is not available through my library or inter-library loan and the publication date for American Road Trip has been pushed to 2018, so I likely won't get to that one. Setting my goal a little lower this year has paid off. :)
