My goal is to read more books by Women of Color and Indigenous authors. Fairy tales, mythic fiction, magical realism, and science fiction will be the primary genres on which I focus. Plus seasonal reads during the fall and winter. Review policy.

My challenge for 2017 is 100 books.

Fiction: 51 | Non-Fiction: 7 | Total: 58
