Maya Angelou lived such a complicated and brave life, and this book outlines some amazing twists and turns throughout her life...all backed with her mother‘s guidance and support.

I‘m aiming for 4 challenges this year... not sure if I‘ll finish them all or not, because I‘m also aiming to read more for fun too.

But my attempts will be:

1 - My own #OurSharedShelf challenge... I think I‘ve read about 1/2 of the books this group has picked & I‘d like to prioritize the rest. Maybe aim for 1 a month, try to slowly make some headway.

2 - #MtTBR I failed this challenge last year. I found my other challenges pushed me... ⤵️

Riveted_Reader_Melissa ... to read more eclectically, which is great, but it also steered me away from some of the books I already owned. So I set my sights a bit lower this year, trying to find the right balance. With that in mind, I picked #MtBlanc as my goal for 2020. 4w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa 3 - Booked2020 I enjoyed this challenge last year, but I fully admit that I didn‘t read them in season specific order last year, and I‘ll be free-wheeling it this year too, plugging in books I read for other things as I read them no matter when I read them. So it will be a more laid-back version of this challenge. 4w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa 4 - #Nonfiction2020 my own challenge, it encourages me to read more nonfiction, and this year specifically topical & timely nonfiction. 🤞 (edited) 4w
JazzFeathers I'm at tempting #Booked2020 too, though last year l spectacularly failed at it. I'm also attempting #ReadingEurope2020 4w

This one has been sitting on my to-read list since it was picked for “Our Shared Shelf” maybe a year ago...maybe two...😬. I really need to make an effort to read all of the books Watson‘s group picks, because although I didn‘t know much about the group or artist before, I still enjoyed this memoir.

So one down for my #OurSharedShelf reads and one for #Nonfiction2019

readordierachel I really enjoyed this one too! 1mo

#OurSharedShelf #OSS Quite a unique read with a touch of true maliciousness wrapped in an emotional truth telling sheath. Also a bit of a comic book but I mean that in the most complimentary way. A violent, raw, charming, witty coming of age as trans tale. How did she squeeze it all into this light little package?

#oursharedshelf read for November/December. Can‘t find the latest book at a library near me yet so I am reading all the books for the last months.

Initially, I was tearing along through this book, but at a certain point, I became frustrated with the book‘s progress. And then the author‘s genius dawned on me: my frustration was nowhere near the frustration suffered by the Radium Girls at the hands of a callous, uncaring industry and medical complex. Bravest women, ever! We would do well to heed the last sentence of the Postscript: “How quickly we forget.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #oursharedshelf
