Once again, I'm trying to knock out some of my reading challenge (probably both 2016 and my 50 Book Challenge from last year). I always pick more books than I can read, but I like to have options and read depending on my mood. Shorter books are better, because you can get through them quickly and feel accomplished.
My choices for this round are:
Punch Lines: “Humerus Art”, by George D. Wachob. I won this through Goodreads giveaways, and this will be my book under 100 pgs.
Night, by Elie Wiesel. This will be my book in translation – and RIP, Mr. Wiesel.
Ariel, by Sylvia Plath is my contemporary collection of poetry – I won this book from a mini-challenge hosted by Nisaba Be Praised last read-a-thon! I've read a few poems, but I saved the full (short) book for this read-a-thon.
The Woman in the Shaman's Body: Reclaiming the Feminine in Religion and Medicine, by Barbara Tedlock, PH.D. will be the nonfiction book about feminism or dealing with feminist themes. I'm excited about this one! I should think it qualifies as a feminist theme, right?
And if they come through my library ebooks (I'm next in line for both), I will also have:
Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family, by Amy Ellis Nutt as a book about a person who is transgender
I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai, which I cannot wait to read. This will be the book set in the Middle East.
And if I get in the mood for it, I've been saving “reread a childhood favorite” for a time when I'm feeling it, and I think I'm getting there. My childhood favorite, The Clan of the Cave Bear is a pretty long book, so not really great for read-a-thon, but I may work on it a bit between books.
