This year I'm making reading a number one priority. I'm participating in 7 reading challenges, 2 real life book clubs + an online book club. My goal is to read at least 75 books + graphic novels with at least 60% female or femme authors, 25% authors of colour + 10% LGBTQ+ authors or main characters. I'll be using each book I read across all 7 challenges (where possible) + trying to slot the book club books into reading challenge prompts if I can.

ofbooksandme Since last year I formed a booked club with some friends and we decided we wanted to read only books written by women in any genre other than realism or romance (aka read genres in which women are not generally praised) and I have to say it's a wonderful idea. This year I'm going for more geographical diversity and more POC also. 2y

tif @ofbooksandme I think diversity is so important! If we only read people who are the same as us we can never expand our world view 😊 2y
tif @merelybookish 😂😂 2y
tif @Cinfhen let's see how I go 😆😆 2y

Today I shared #alazyhour with my husband by the Christmas tree. Him, watching football, me, reading my #LMPBC book. This is how we are #SurvivingDecember by enjoying these #DecDays sheltered from the #cold by the #twinkle #ChristmasLights and #ornaments

This is a new edition of L.M. Montgomery's #firstnovel. I don't think it's the #bestcover, but I'm in favor of anything that might get new Anne fans excited because #itsbeginning a wonderful series. I have to say #thankyou to LMM for this book I turn to when I #needcalm. #decktheshelves #survivingdecember #decdays #seasonsreadings2017 #jingleshelves #multitasking

DGRachel I adore this cover. I‘ve never seen it before and I think I need to get my grabby hands on a copy. 😍 2y

In #timeslikethese, #waiting for Prince Charming, the Harvey Girls worry that "It's a Great, Big World," rather than a #bigbrightbeautifulworld. And Judy should have known that being a prospective mail order bride was bound to bring #strangerdanger. #rocktober #hallowreads #melodiousmusicals #uncannyoctober #multitasking

RealLifeReading Awesome multitasking! 2y

This one works for #fallintoreading for #goldandsilver for the cover and for #septembowie for #underpressure and@#fallintoreading for #guilty because the husband in the book was under pressure the entire book because he was guilty of running a Ponzi scheme.

Cinfhen I have this book but haven't gotten to it yet! Great choice #multiplayer 🖤💛 2y
Cinfhen Did you like the book? Should I bump it up my TBR??? 2y
Mamashep @Cinfhen if I gave star rankings, I'd give this one a 3.5 stars. I did like it quite a lot; didn't love it, mostly because I wanted to slap both of the main characters throughout the book. It would make a great book club choice. 2y

Cinfhen When someone uses the phrase #goodbookclubchoice im all in!!!! 2y
Mamashep @Cinfhen right? You know that even if the writing's not brilliant, there's a lot going on that makes it a book worth reading! 2y
Cinfhen 💯 2y

This #SatisfiedSaturday I've rearranged my #bookmarks, picking up the idea of @Kalalalatja, I used this gigantic mug to store them in. I've made a few #changes to my book shelves and now I'm going to grab #BookAndBlanket and read for as long as my kids allow me some free time.

Cinfhen Sounds wonderful 💗#multiplayer 😊 2y
rubyslippersreads This is a great idea, though I'd have to hide the mug from my cats. A tassel is a cat toy. 😹 2y
Sarah83 I see Sherlock Holmes 😂😍 2y
julesG @rubyslippersreads There's are glass doors on the shelf, otherwise I'd have to worry about my kids knocking something off. @Sarah83 Yep. Still need a Sherlock Funko, though 2y
Sarah83 Do you also love Sherlock? 2y
Jinjer That looks nice! Never thought to use one of my poor mugs that rarely gets out of the cabinet! 2y
julesG @Sarah83 Yes, Sherlock in all his forms: the classic ACD, film, series, different novelisations. 2y
julesG @Jinjer Unused mugs make great vases, flower pits, bookmark holders,... 😉 2y
Sarah83 So cool. 😀 2y
