This was a good reading month.Â I read a lot of Women in Translation and I used The Reading Quest challenge to really tackle some books that I’ve had on my TBR for a while.
I read 22 books this month.
My Women in Translation Month reading
The books were:
- Set in France, Iceland, The Ivory Coast, Poland, Japan, Turkmenistan, Sweden, Suriname, England, Italy, Algeria, and fantasy places.Â I just realized that none of the fiction was set in the U.S.
- The nonfiction was set in Minnesota/New York, Massachusetts, and the Pacific Ocean
- 2 audiobooks and 5 graphic novels
The authors were:
- Â 16 unique female authors and 3 male authors
- Â 9 white women, 3 white men, 1 South Asian woman, 2 Japanese women, 1 Korean woman, 1 Latina, and 2 black women
Women In Translation Month – an August event
I loved focusing on translations. I read a lot of graphic novels because I could get more in that way.
There are many combinations I could have marked but this one gave me 2 bingos.Â I read books originally in French, Polish, Icelandic, Swedish, Dutch, Korean, and Japanese.Â
We’re halfway through The Reading Quest.Â I’ve finished the Mage path and am working on Knight.Â I just have to read a book with a red cover to finish that.Â I’ve done four side quests in the center of the board too.
Reading All Around the World challenge from Howling Frog Books
- Read a nonfiction book about the country – or
- Read fiction written by a native of the country or someone living for a long time in the country.
I added Poland, Iceland, The Ivory Coast, and Suriname this month!
Â I made a thing! I decided to use all the National Day of Random Things holidays to make a photo challenge for myself. Anyone can play along.
Wow–22 books is huge! I’ve never seen/heard of most of the books you’ve read so thanks for sharing them with us. Now I have new novels to check out.
Sorry I’m only visiting now (from the linkup). Oh my gosh, have I had a busy month. I hope September is treating you well 🙂 you have loaaaads of interesting books on your women in translation challenge!
Wow, you are doing awesome on your challenges. I feel like Iâ€™m slacking on mine. I hope youâ€™re having a great September!
So many great illustrated books! I still haven’t read any of the Aya graphic novels–and I’m going to have to!
Love the idea of that Women in Translation event. Hope you enjoyed everything you read!
Oh wow you did amazing in August. Looks like all those books took you well around the world for a bit. Sounds like it was a lot of fun.
Love the cover for Strange Practice – too bad the book didn’t seem to live up to it. And I need to read more around the world books — I’ve made some progress but not as much as you.
You did awesome! Happy September!
