We’re almost halfway through the #DAReadAThon, hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight, so I thought it would be fun to post a little update on my progress!
Books Read / In Progress
Book: Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman by Lindy West
Points Earned: 32
By far one of the best memoirs I’ve ever read. West speaks earnestly and candidly about being both fat and feminist in America.
Book: Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst
Status: 231 pages read
Social Media Share(s): 1
Points Earned: 24
I’m about two-thirds of the way through this book, and while the writing isn’t quite my style, the plot has been interesting enough that I breezed through most of what I’ve read in one sitting. I also like the development of Mare and Denna’s relationship; it wasn’t that love-at-first-sight crap we’re always being fed in romances. Can’t wait to see how it ends! (The story. Not their relationship. I’m not THAT much of a pessimist.)
With seven prompts total in this readathon, and the end a mere nine days away, I’m not sure how many points I’ll end up scoring for Gryffindor. Nonetheless, I still plan on reading the books on my #DAReadAThon TBR, because this focus on diverse voices has already been great!
If you’re participating in the readathon, how are you doing so far? What House are earning points for?
