I have a lot of books out from the library that I'm not sure I'm going to have time to read, but I'm going to give it my best shot. Believe in yourself, Renay! DON'T THROW AWAY YOUR SHOT! Who cares if three of them are new books and you only have two weeks with them? You can do it.

CHALLENGE: 100 Unique Women Writers

Week 2 is complete! I read Dark Orbit by Carolyn Ives Gilman (reviewed below). For Week 3, my next title selected from The Jar and presented by Doreen, is Bone Black: Memories of Girlhood by bell hooks:

I've never read bell hooks before, but it's on my list because I heard about her nonfiction and all my library had was this memoir and it sounded interesting. That's been a long time, so I'm happy to finally get to it.

Things I read!

  • Binti by Nnedi Okorafor — definitely read this
  • Dark Orbit by Carolyn Ives Gilman — read this if you keep ending up on the Schrodinger's Cat Wikipedia page
  • All-New All-Different Avengers #3 by Mark Waid, Adam Kubert, & Alex Ross — they probably won't cancel this because of the all-dude creative team so you can wait for a coherent trade
  • A-Force #1 by G. Willow Wilson & Jorge Molina — our new superhero is GREAT!

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
