Summer 2014 Book Challenge: One Month Down!

Summer 2014 Book Challenge: One Month Down!

I am on track to complete this challenge by the end of the summer! I read four books in May, and all of them came from my proposed reading list that I posted at the beginning of last month.

So what have I read so far?

20 points: Read a book with “son(s),” “daughter(s)” or “child(ren)” in the title. The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potzsch (448 pages, 4 stars, review here)

10 points: Read a book from the children’s section of the library or bookstore. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore (563 pages, 5 stars, review here)

5 points: Freebie! Read any book that is at least 200 pages long. The History of Love by Nicole Krauss (260 pages, 5 stars)

30 points: Read a pair of books with antonyms in the titles. A is for Abstinence by Kelly Oram (204 pages, 4 stars) Note: the points are for TWO books, and I've only read the first, but I wanted to include it in my list of May books.   

Total points: Since I don't think I get to include 15 points for A is for Abstinence, not until I read a book about sex, I'm only at 35 points so far. But four books in four weeks is on track to finish out the summer with all 13 books read from my list!

What have you read lately?

  1. Found you by clicking on various buttons on various blogs - love finding feminist bloggers. I haven't read any of the books on your list, and I've been re-reading old stuff lately. But given your overall blog interests, I wonder if you've read Anatomy of Love by Helen Fisher? An anthropological/biological view of the history of sex and a pretty interesting read. I also love the Kushiel series by Jacqueline Carey, where the main character is an awesome, brilliant courtesan.
