Readers, I’m so excited! I was browsing twitter and I can across this awesome read-a-thon for November. It is hosted by Brody and Michelle, both indigenous people who have booktube channels. I’ve been meaning to look into more stories by indigenous voices and this is great motivation to really get started! Please support indigenous voices! Below is the bingo sheet as well as the books I’ve chosen for this read-a-thon.
You can find Brody’s explaination of IndigAThon here.
You can find Michelle’s explaination of IndigAThon here.
There is also an IndigAThon twitter page that you can follow so that you can find some cool recommendations and chat with some people. You can find that here.
MY TBR for this read-a-thon
SF/F: Trail Of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse . I own this book, but haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. Guess I will now! 🙂
The group read: THE BREAK by Katherena Vermette
Nonfiction: Me Sexy by Drew Hayden Taylor
South American: Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia . I’m already read it, but it counts right? It’s SOOO good!
Intersectionality: Johny Appleseed by Joshua Whitehead
Romance: Hearts Unbroken by Cynthia Leitich Smith
On Rez: Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko. I read this in high school in my honors English class years ago. It was really interesting read and one of the first books I read by an indigenous author
Historical fiction: Code Talker by Joseph Bruchac
Movie Night: Empire of Dirt starring Cara Gee
Paranormal: Son of a Trickster by Eden Robinson. Every time I read the summary of this book I get excited to read it. Right up my alley.
So, those are my choices for this read-a-thon. You might notice that if you look at the bingo sheet currently with how I’m looking at in I can’t get a bingo (though I get close), but that’s okay with me. I really just want to expand my reading and introduce myself to #ownvoices indigenous stories. As I said, I am so ridiculously excited about this and I hope you join everyone and myself in this great idea!
