2018 Reading Goals

Below is a reading bingo I created for 2018. I don’t usually participate in bingo or other reading challenges because I read so slowly, but I hope I can manage five books vertically, horizontally, or diagonally!

Reading Update 10/3/16

Here’s what I’m reading now and plan to be reading through October:
·       風光る 12 – 渡辺 多恵
·       はんだく 6 – ヨシノサツ
·       Crazy Horse’s Girlfriend – Erika T. Wurth
·       The Girl from Everywhere – Heidi Heilig
·       The Surgeon – Tess Gerritsen

I’ll probably start other books after I finish these, possibly before November, so keep an eye on Twitter, where I post pics of my most current reads!

Note: Titles in Japanese indicate books I’m reading in Japanese.

Reading Update 8/30/16

Although I don’t call myself a book blogger, per se, I do enjoy seeing other people’s lists of current reads, especially if they feature books by marginalized writers. Moving forward, I plan to post monthly blog updates of what I’m reading. I realize most people post more often, but I’m a slow reader.

Here’s what I’m reading now and plan to be reading through September:

  • 風光る 10 – 渡辺 多恵子
  • Midnight Taxi Tango – Daniel Jose Older
  • My Heart and Other Black Holes – Jasmine Warga
  • Starfang: Claw of the Clan – Joyce Chng
  • The Book of Phoenix – Nnedi Okorafor
  • The Obelisk Gate – N.K. Jemisin

I’ll probably start other books after I finish these, possibly before October, so keep an eye on Twitter, where I post pics of my most current reads!

Note: Titles in Japanese indicate books I’m reading in Japanese.
