Fempowerathon TBR

Fempowerathon is a readathon during the 19th – 26th March 2017 created by TayliciousReads and NicoleCraswell. Watch the announcement video here.
The goal is to read several female-centric books in one week. There are a few tasks/challenges to help you pick books.

I thought this was a fantastic idea for a readathon and had to join in. Great job ladies!

The Challenges:
– a woman in a position of power
– a woman of colour
– an LGBT+ woman
– prominent sister relationship
– a woman with a mental illness
– an own voices novel
– not set in the western world
– a graphic novel by a female

My Picks:
Far from the Madding Crowd Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy

The Complete Persepolis The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
The Color Purple The Colour Purple by Alice Walker
Tipping the Velvet Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters
Macbeth Macbeth by William Shakespeare
Atonement Atonement by Ian McEwan
Sense and Sensibility Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

  1. I love the idea behind this readathon! You’ve got some good reads lined up. I read ‘The Color Purple’ a few years back – it was so powerful and unlike anything I’d ever read before. Enjoy! 🙂
