2017 Reading Challenge

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: 44 | Non-Fiction: 3 | Total: 47
