WITMonth Day 2 | WITMonth 2016 plans and reading list!

Hello friends! We're on our way, and here are a few plans I have for this coming month:

  • Reviews! I've got tons of books that I've read over the past year or two that I never reviewed. It's about time I got to them. These reviews will cover books I liked, books I didn't like, books I loved, books I thought were interesting, classics, new releases, random finds... everything!
  • Discussions! There are still stones unturned in the discussion of women writers in translation, and WITMonth is as good a time as any to turn them over... and then throw them at you all.
  • Stats! Yup, there's more. There's always more.
  • Reading lists!
To start us off with reading lists, here are just a handful of the books I hope to get to this month:
  • A Temporary Sojourn and Other Stories by Nasreen Jahan (various translators)
  • Fullmetal Alchemist: Volume 1-3 by Hiromu Arakawa (translated by Akira Watanabe)
  • Voices from Chernobyl: The Oral History of a Nuclear Disaster by Svetlana Alexievich (translated by Keith Gessen)
  • Memoirs of Hadrian by Marguerite Yourcenar (translated by Grace Frick)
  • Prodigies by AngĂ©lica Gorodischer (translated by Sue Burke)
  • The Country Road by Regina Ullmann (translated by Kurt Beals)
  • I, Tituba: Black Witch of Salem by Maryse CondĂ© (translated by Richard Philcox)
...and dozens more. Literally dozens of books, stacked precariously on the windowsill above my bed. Many languages, many regions, many perspectives.

Happy reading!

  1. What a great event! I'm in. I found a couple of titles on my shelf of library books, and one more on Kindle, so I'm set.
