  1. The only Adichie book I have read is We Should All Be Feminists which I am sure is a long essay adapted from her TEDx talk, but I have been wanting to read more ever since so maybe Americanah is a good place to start!

    • Just a heads up that Say Nothing isn’t a typical true crime. It is mostly about war and conflict. I’ll post an actual review of it later today that you should read before you decide that it is for you. I will make sure there aren’t any real spoilers in the review as well.

    • This is a reread for me. Is there anyone that hasn’t read it once?! 🙂 I haven’t read them for about 10 years, so it is definitely time for a reread. I’m doing them on audiobook too, which has been really fun.

  2. Your ‘A focus on authors reading challenge’ look intriguing, the Rainbow Rowell month should be a lot of fun. Enjoy!

  3. Hooray for HP! The Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite. 🙂 I plan to read book one with my daughter in May, so I hope she likes it enough to continue the series (although I don’t think we’ll read past Azkaban for a while since she’s only 8). Have a wonderful reading week!

    • I think Azkaban was my favorite last time I read the series too, so we shall see what I think ten years later. 😉 When I worked at the local library there were a lot of kids not even in the middle grades reading all the HP books. I agree with you though. It gets very dark in the later books.

      • I think every time that I reread them, it stays my favorite. Yes, I have students in my college Lit classes who talk about when they read HP in elementary school, but my daughter gets scared pretty easily and has anxiety disorder, so I was even very hesitant to even let her read Sorcerer’s Stone this school year, but she really, really wants to. If it scares her, then I’ll have her stop and try again in 4th grade (or later). She’s reading at an almost 7th grade level, so it’s hard to balance the books that are age appropriate, mom approved, and books that don’t bore here when she tries to read them because they’re too easy.
