23 thoughts on “Reading Women Challenge 2020”

  1. I have some GR friends who participate in this challenge. I’ve given myself a break from year-long challenges, for a few years now, but I do try to consciously choose women/POC/POC women, etc. Not so much translated works by women/POC but maybe I will add that in. Actually I just pulled Troll: A Love Story off my shelf which is by a woman (Johanna Sinisalo) and has been translated from Finnish (by a man). This book has been niggling at my mind for a few weeks and I love when I have it already within my grasp! If you can fit Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse into one of your tasks, you should! It was really good!!

    1. Thanks for the rec, I’ll definitely check it out!
      I think year long reading lists help me when I’m not quite sure what I want to read next. I love discovering new books but don’t actually do so very organically so the prompts help me for sure.
      I used to be guilty of reading predominantly men because of the genres I read, so I consciously trying to right the balance!
