#MustReadin2018 Fall Update
This is my fifth year participating in Carrie Gelson's #MustRead challenge. I love it. This is a way to encourage myself to read books I have wanted to read, but never quite get to. It's also a way to keep certain books on my radar that haven't been released yet. Carrie does a great job encouraging us and reminding us to post about our progress.
This year I chose 30 books. In the spring, I posted about the first nine books I had finished. Since then, I have finished another nine for a total of eighteen. Yay!!
Our Stories, Our Voices and recommended it. The stories are inspirational and remind readers that we are not alone. Convenience Store Woman was an adult novel and was perfect for reading while on my trip to Japan this summer. We went to so many, many convenience stores. Also, the main character is unique and has a fabulous voice. From Twinkle, With Love was funny and fabulous. The Way You Make Me Feel also had me in laughter. Dread Nation was intense. We did a discussion about it at Rich in Color. There were also some Native representation issues that were brought up by Debbie Reese. I enjoyed the action and adventure, but it wasn't my favorite. Pemmican Wars is a YA graphic novel and was an interesting way to read about Native history. Give Me Some Truth was awesome as I expected. It was a sequel or companion to If I Ever Get Out of Here. The author does a fantastic job with place and characters. I reviewed it here. Not the Girls You're Looking For is another super fun read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I reviewed it here. Amal Unbound is a gorgeous book of family and how strong some young women prove to be. I reviewed it here.
I'm looking forward to reading more on my list. Thanks for stopping by!
