Dumbledore’s Army Readathon

From now until January 15th, I’ll be participating in the Dumbledore’s Army Readathon, and I will track my progress in this post.

For the sake of clarity: “an own voices book is a book featuring a marginalised perspective, written by an author who shares the same marginalised characteristics.” says Read At Midnight.

da-readathon-expelliarmus

A marginalized group I don’t often read about: prisoners. Orange Is The New Black by Piper Kerman.

da-readathon-protego

Own voices book: The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison.

da-readathon-reducto

A book that empowers women: Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys: race, gender and mental illness? How marginalized can you get?

dareadathon-expecto-patronum

An issue of personal significance. For me, that’s would be feminism, disability or mental illness. I’m going with Girl, Interrupted, by Susanna Kaysen.

dareadathon-impedimenta

A book from my To Be Read: Paaz by Myrthe van der Meer, an account of bipolar disorder.dareadathon-stupefy

An internet hype: Everyone seems to be talking about I Love Dick by Chris Kraus.

dareadthon-lumos

A book recommended by a fellow blogger: I don’t know! Perhaps A Room Of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf? Not recommended by a blogger, but recommended by a friend.
