Thank you everyone! 

 

Today I finished my first two reads of 2018. Dear Ijawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and a collection of poetry titled An Attic of Ideals by Karen Swenson. Dear Ijawele, while not particularly groundbreaking, was perfect for what it was - honest, to the point, and clearly communicated. It is a short book, 60ish pages long, taken from a letter Adichie wrote to a friend who asked her how to raise her daughter feminist. Adichie writes about feminism without being moralizing, a quality I appreciate in any social discourse. An Attic of Ideals is a book I came across by chance. Of its many poems there were both hits and misses, but the hits were of excellent quality.

So it seems this has been a good start to the year for me. Since I last updated, I finished both Beautiful Losers by Leonard Cohen and Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee. Both were great. 

 

I've started reading Jane Eyre for the readathon, but I had less time last weekend than I hoped and I didn't get that far. I think I'll pick that one back up during the next readathon and finish it. It's my first book by a Bronte sister :) 

 

Currently, I'm reading Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff. God save us.
