#DAReadAThon TBR


The lovely Aentee from Read At Midnight is hosting a wonderful readathon that will be running from January 1, 2017, to January 15, 2017.  The readathon is called the DAReadAThon, a play on Dumbledore’s Army.  There are seven challenges and each challenge is named after a spell from Harry Potter!  With this readathon, you can earn house points for your Hogwarts house, which is going to be so much fun!  And if anyone is wondering, I’m a proud Gryffindor! This readathon is all about reading diverse books!  While I have read quite a few diverse books, I am making a concerted effort to read more.  This is one of three January readathons that I will be participating in.  Without further ado here is my TBR:

Expecto Patronum: Read a diverse book featuring an issue of personal significance to you or a loved one.  For this challenge, I will be reading A List of Cages by Robin Roe.  There are two main characters in this book and one of them has ADHD.  I have ADD, while it isn’t the same as ADHD it is very similar.

Expelliarmus: Disarm your own prejudices.  Read a diverse book featuring a marginalized group that you don’t often read about.  I will be reading The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness, why? Because it encompasses a lot of groups that I don’t often read about.  I don’t read enough books dealing with mental illness, main characters of color, and characters who are part of the LGBTQ community.

Protego: Protect those narratives and keep them true.  Read an #OwnVoices book for this prompt.  For this, I am going to read The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.  I did think about re-reading I Am Malala for this challenge, however, I decided that I would read another own voices book.

Reducto: Smash that glass ceiling.  Read a book that empowers women from all different walks of life.  I am going to be reading Black Moon by Romina Russell for this one.  The main character Rho is such a strong female lead and has to become a leader.

Impedimenta: Read a diverse book that’s been left sitting on your TBR for far too long.  I will be reading A Whole New World by Liz Braswell for this one.  It’s a retelling of Aladdin!

Stupefy: Read a diverse book that has stunned the internet with all its well-deserved hype.  The Sun is Also A Star is a perfect book to read for this challenge.  It is very much hyped.

Lumos: Read a diverse book that was recommended by one of your fellow bloggers.  I am going to finally read The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh.  I have seen this on a lot of blogs and of course a lot of Booktube channels.  It’s also been on my TBR for a while too.
