#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!

I've heard nothing but good things about The Way You Make Me Feel. I need to get on reading that soon. I'm so happy you loved so many of the books you read!ReplyDelete
I'm excited to read The Way You Make Me Feel too. I've heard such good things and it looks delightful. I really enjoyed When Dimple Met Rishi, so I'm interested to see where Menon goes with her next book (and the plot of Twinkle sounds fun too!) Give Me Some Truth looks great too...SO many good books!!ReplyDelete
I have some of yours on my list, have only read Amal Unbound, which I loved. I've put others on the list, Crystal. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Nice job on your list. I am hoping to get to Give Me Some Truth after reading If I Ever Get Out of Here from my list in the spring.ReplyDelete
I am looking forward to reading Our Stories, Our Voices. The sequel to Pemmican Wars, Red River Resistance, is supposed to be ready in November. I am looking forward to that. Give Me Some Truth didn't work for me as well as If I Ever Get Out of Here, which I loved. I also loved Amal Unbound.ReplyDelete
Putting some of these titles onto my TBR list. Thank you! Always an expanding list.ReplyDelete
