Day One, Saturday, June 25:
(All times are Brisbane local time)
It’s that time again! I am participating in the June 2016 Trees of Reverie Read-a-thon. This is the Day 1 Challenge post.
- I want to write a brief review for each book I read and post it (likely on Goodreads)
- I want to complete each of the daily updates and challenges
My To-Be-Read List (in order):
- Wintering by Megan Snyder-Camp (Current page: 20 of 72) — Reading this and the next book in order to write a review for publication. Interesting read, so far…
- The Gunnywolf by Megan Snyder-Camp
- [insert] boy by Danez Smith — Met Danez recently, and got this and another of their books. They’re a sweetheart, and they signed it and took a selfie with me, and I can’t wait to read it!
- Time on Two Crosses: the Collected Writing of Bayard Rustin by Don Wiese [ed.] (Current page: 19 of 365) — Important read for me. Paused because of anxiety; currently reading about the Freedom Rides, and it stressed me out.
- UNeducation, Vol 1: A Residential School Graphic Novel by Jason EagleSpeaker (Current page: 28 of 99) — Recommended by a cousin of the author. Paused because it’s a pretty hard read.
- Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs — have really been enjoying this series so far, and I’m excited to read this one!
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (Current page: 68 of 391) — Fun read, so far. Paused due to school reading taking priority.
- The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo by Tom Reiss — I bought this one ages ago, after learning about it’s existence, and it’s been sitting in my too-read pile ever since.
- Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow (Current page: 355 of 1225) — Super excited to get back to this one. I credit it with helping me realize how much I wanted to go into studying history, and setting me on my current path, which includes studying at the University of Ghana, applying to the McNair Fellowship, and preparing for a PhD program in History.
My aspirations are always so much more than I can actually complete in the given span of time, but we’ll see how much I can get through between now and July 3rd!
