It’s Monday What Are You Reading?

This is a little something new I discovered while checking out some blogs.


It’s Monday What Are You Reading hosted by Sheila at Book Journey

It’s a meme created to give an update about what you’ve  done during the previous week and, what you are planning to read in the up coming week. This is my first one so it’s kind of a rough draft.

So last week I only finished one book Kindred By Octavia E. Butler click here for the review. I loved this book so much and can’t wait to read more from Butler.

I am currently reading Sister Citizen By Melissa V. Harris-Perry I am loving this book. I simultaneously want to finish it and take my time with it. I will probably finish it in the next day or so.

Over on Youtube there is a 30 day reading challenge going over on started by Ricquetta on NerdInTranslation. She is going to read a book a day for the next 30 days (June 17th-July16th )to check out her video click here. I have decided to participate but I changed it up a bit for myself. I am going to read 15 books in 30 days so we will see how that goes. To check out my original post click here

I am not going to plan out what I will be reading with the exception of two books

A Raisin In The Sun By Lorraine Hansberry and

To Be Young, Gifted, and Black By Lorraine Hansberry

Other than that I will be picking up whatever feels right.

Thanks for checking out my first It’s Monday What Are You Reading

Until Next Time


#Friday Reads

What is #Friday Reads you say? Well it’s  something that started on twitter where people would tweet what they were reading for the weekend with the hash-tag fridayreads. Then BunnyCates brought it to YouTube (check her out here) and now I am going to bring here to this little blog.

So this is what I am reading this weekend

Sister Citizen by Melissa V. Harris-Perry.

I am about 1/3 of the way through this book.I have only been following Melissa for a few months. I don’t know what I was doing with my life either!! The group I am in on Goodreads (Clutch Reading Challenge) read this the first month but I didn’t get the book in time. So far it’s been a fascinating and fast paced read. Some of what she is saying isn’t new to me but the context she puts the information in is. This is an exciting read and I simultaneously want to finish it right away and take my time.

Kindred By Ocatavia E. Butler

This is another off the Clutch Reading Challenge list. I am not one to gravitate to Sci-Fi but the synopsis is so interesting and unique that I couldn’t resist.  I can’t say much as I am only a couple chapters in except that it’s intriguing.

I am still working my through Jane Eyre and Northanger Abbey. While I am not disliking them I am just not feeling motivated to read them for some reason. My goal is to finish them this month so fingers crossed it will happen.

Until Next Time
