I am super tired after a long day out today to the Into the Unknown exhibition at the Barbican, so I’m going to try and shoot through this so I can flop on the sofa. As usual, I have added too many books to my shelves this week even though I am still progressing incredibly slowly through my current books! I’ve also (finally) included my very sparse Diversity Bingo!
I didn’t purchase any books this week. I tried! I have some vouchers that I was going to get some books with but didn’t realise that books from the store were so expensive nowadays, so I’m probably going to use the vouchers for something else instead. I didn’t rent any more books from Prime reader either.
I went on a little bit of a requesting spree last week, but before StS #2 I had only been approved for the Sum of Us. Since then I have had 2 more books approved, but no word yet for When Dimple Met Rishi & The Hazel Wood.
Goodreads is always the place for my long reading list acquisitions! This week it was quite long as I created a new shelf for Pacific Island authors for my Pacific Island Erasure post, but I have also added:
The Island at the End of Everything by Kiran Millwood Hargrave // Bad Girls Throughout History by Ann Shen // Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers who Changed the World by Rachel Ignotofsky // Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls: 100 Tales of Extraordinary Things by Elena Favilli // V for Vendetta by Alan Moore // Saga Vol. 2 by Brian K. Vaughn // Through the Woods by Emily Carroll // Lackadaisy Vol. 1 by Tracy Butler
Diversity Bingo 2017
As I’m coming into Diversity Bingo so late in the year, so I’m not sure how much ground I can cover in the months remaining given how slowly I read. Does anybody have any good recommendations for books you’ve enjoyed for your Diversity Bingo? I’d particularly love to read any that aren’t some of the small handfuls being mentioned over and over again!
The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers // Monster Culture in the 21st Century: A Reader ed. Marina Levina & Diem-My T. Bui // True Sex: The Lives of Trans Men at the Turn of the 20th Century by Emily Skidmore
