I’ve seen this book challenge around for a while now and traced it back to Classy x Book Reviews. It seemed like a fun challenge to do, until I started going through my TBR. I have a fairly sizeable TBR and it is out of control. I have hundreds of books and it seems that nearly half of them are unread.
Having said that, this challenge should be a real eye opener of what I’m going to read or not going to read. I feel a purge coming on.
Most Memorable Books
- The Awakening by Kate Chopin made the memorable list and not because it was one that I enjoyed. Well, I liked it, right up until the end and then it crashed and burned.
- American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang is a graphic novel I read a few months ago about a Chinese American boy who wants to fit in. There are 3 seemingly unrelated tales. Yang weaves a tale that is funny, poignant and on some levels sad. It’s a tale about learning to love and accept who you are.
- American Street by Ibi Zoboi is an immigrant story with a bit of magiIcal realism. Fabiola and her mother board a plane from Haiti to Chicago. Her mother ends up detained by Immigration and Fabiola must learn to navigate a new country, a new city, relatives she doesn’t know and her first boyfriend.
