Women’s History Month Readathon TBR

Less than a week until the start of the Women’s History Month Readathon! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, go check out the announcement post. 😊

Basically, this readathon is aimed at celebrating women’s stories, with the goal of reading books written by women during the month of March. The prompts for this year are:

My TBR of seven books manages to hit almost all of these challenges. Let’s take a look at them, shall we?

Bruised by Tanya Boteju

44540687. sy475

  • A book about sisterhood and/or female friendship
  • A book with a woman of color on the cover

This book is about roller derby and it’s pitched as Whip It meets We Are Okay, so I’m fully on board. I’m only guessing that it’ll have major themes of female friendship, but based on the description I think that’s a pretty safe bet!

Fireheart Tiger by Aliette de Bodard

53317495. sy475

  • A book under 200 pages
  • A non-Western fantasy book

This novella is set in a pre-colonial Vietnamese-inspired fantasy world, from what I understand, following a princess-turned-diplomat trying to save her kingdom. Another incredible sounding pitch with this one, which is described as The Goblin Emperor meets Howl’s Moving Castle. YES PLEASE.

Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse

36373298. sy475

  • A book by an indigenous author
  • A book set in the future

I’ve been meaning to read this book for so long (apologies to my coworker whose copy I borrowed like half a year ago). It’s set in the aftermath of a climate apocalypse, which definitely won’t hit too close to home, and involves survival and monster hunters.

No More Heroes by Michelle Kan

34337959. sy475

  • A book with fewer than 1k ratings on Goodreads
  • A book with purple on the cover

This book has less than 100 Goodreads ratings, and I don’t even remember where I first heard about it, but it involves superpowered vigilantes and urban fantasy and a diverse gang of heroes, so I think it’ll be a lot of fun!

This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills

27779275

  • A book that you added to your TBR within the last three months
  • A book recommended to you
  • A book by an author whose work you’ve loved before

After I loved Foolish Hearts a few months ago, I asked which Emma Mills book I should read next, and several of you recommended this one! Honestly, I barely know what this is about but I saw the words “group of friends” in the description, so I’m in.

An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

30969741. sy475

  • A book by an author who shares a name or initials with you

This was actually the only book I could find on my TBR with an author who shared my first name (other than Margaret Rogerson’s other book)! Luckily, it’s one that I’ve wanted to pick up for a while—I’ve heard it has beautiful writing and great romance.

The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

38255342

  • A book with a name in the title

Please feel free to ignore the fact that this book was on my WHM Readathon TBR last year and I didn’t get to it then. This reimagining of Frankenstein from the POV of his wife sounds really cool and I’ve been meaning to get to it for a long time!
