Have Anything Planned For The Next 30 Days?

There’s a reading challenge going around over in the booktube community on Youtube. It was started by Riquetta (NerdInTranslation) check her out she is one of my favorite youtubers.  Riquetta is challenging herself to read a book a day for 30 days and, she will probably accomplish it knowing her. Several other booktubers are joining in on this challenge and I decided to give it a go too. So there is no way I can read a book a day but, I think I can do half of that. So I am shooting for 15 books in 30 days. About a month ago I participated in the Bout of Books read-a-thon and didn’t reach my goal. What I learned about myself was that I won’t stick to a set reading list, so, I’m not going to set one. I have 2 exceptions to the no set book list.  They are both fairly small one is a play and the other is the autobiography of the person who wrote the play. A Raisin in the Sun by Lorrain Hansberry and  To be Young,Gifted, and Black by Lorraine Hansberry her autobiography. A movie about Lorraine is currently in the works so yeah I need to read these before that comes out. I also need to finish a couple of books I am currently reading Sister Citizen by Melissa Harris-Perry and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

So the challenge begins Monday June 17th and goes for 30 days. I will probably do a post at the end of each week to see how I am progressing. If you are interested in the challenge go check out Riquetta  she has a link to the others who have decided to join her.

Until Next Time


WWW Wednesday

This is a meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading visit and see what other awesome things are going on!

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

1. What are you currently reading?  The Warmth Of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson and man is it deep. It’s definitely an emotional read but I do really like it so far. I am  still trying to get through Jane Eyre By Charlotte Bronte and it’s just not drawing me in.

2. What did you recently finish reading?  I just finished No One You Know by Michelle Richmond and it was just OK. I can’t really review because I don’t have enough to say about it.  A few days ago I finished To Kill A Mockingbird By Harper Lee and to be honest I am still processing it.

3.  What do you think you’ll read next? I think it will probably be  Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, assuming I can find it at the book store. I am really looking forward to this one so I hope I can find it.  I have a list of others I want to read but I can’t decide which one so I am going to just close my eyes and pick.


That’s all I have today.

Until Next Time
