Tusitala-Marsh has loads of great stuff to say about diversity, acceptance, strength in uniqueness, and colonialism in these two excellent, accessible picture books. Winding up #readharder2020 with a win.

Just okay. There was a lot going on here and it didn‘t all hang together that well, but it passed the time. #readharder2020

Compelling, challenging short pieces on the animal kingdom. Through both fiction and non-fiction the authors in this collection explore the complexity of the relationship between humans and the animals we share this earth with. It is at times confronting, but always thoughtful reading. I was impressed. Slaughterhouse, The Taxidermy Museum, and Winterkill were standouts for me. #readharder2020

Question: How many #bookchallenges do you usually do? How many are you planning this year? This year I did #booked2020 and #readharder2020. For next year I'm doing #booked2021 and the #botm one from Facebook. But I'm also looking at the Popsugar and wondering what Read Harder will have this year. Is 3 too much? Is 4 insane??

Scochrane26 I try not to do many challenges. My library will do a short one again this year, so that‘s probably the only one I‘ll choose. 2y
Soubhiville I have done several at the same time in the past and used the same book across all the challenges if it fit. It all depends on how much you read and how much of a mood reader you are. 2y
Laughterhp I always want to do them all, but I only end up actually doing 2. Otherwise I can‘t read any “fun” or impulse books and I get stressed out! 2y

Amandajoy I do 2 or 3, but try to make sure the books will overlap some. 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick This is the first year I took part in any, but they were ones where my TBR filled most of the prompts. (The horoscope one, a couple summer bingos, bookspin, scarathlon, & winter games) I'll try to do them again next year and I'm looking at #booked2021 too. It'll work with some of my TBR but still encourage me to go out of my comfort zone a little bit. I may consult the pop sugar one and a couple others to diversify but not aim to get them all. 2y
nanuska_153 I think the best thing is start big with the intention of reducing it to one or two that you are truly enjoying, not point on stressing yourself with many that just become an obligation 2y
LeticiaToraci On Litsy I did #Booked2020 and #BookSpin. I also do a lot of Challenges from Goodreads too. 2y

Most of my December reads will be trying to finish up 3 challenges: #ReadingEurope, #USstates, and #CenturyReads. I have completed #Booked2020, #PopSugar2020, #ReadHarder2020, #mandmchallenge, #ReadwithMrBook, and #jennyis30. I've done well and I am alright with moving the rest to 21. So with that being explained, here's my tbr list for December. #BookSpinBingo #ReadNosedReindeer #WinterGames @TheAromaofBooks @StayCurious

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! Good luck!! You are knocking out those challenges!! 2y

This was such a cute little romance. I picked it up for #readharder2020, a book that takes place in a rural setting. Its set in the middle of nowhere Indiana where there is just one Chinese student....until a second one shows up. I may not be Chinese or familiar with the cultural differences, bit I am quite familiar with being the sole representative of a given minority. It's funny how experiences can be really different and similar. Love it! ♥️♥️
