Eisenberg Sisters Reading Challenge

I had a sad, sad year in 2021 and read very few books. I think my mood will do better if I read more, so I'm joining a reading challenge - or two - and hoping this will spur me to turn more pages than I did in 2021. Here's the plan, subject to change:

  1. Winter theme: Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
  2. Women's History: Hild by Nicola Griffith (a reread)
  3. Animal: The Conference of the Birds by Ransom Riggs or maybe Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel 
  4. Technology: To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini 
  5. Time Travel: Kindred by Octavia Butler
  6. National Park: Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed
  7. Unread Bestseller: The 1619 Project by Nikole Hannah-Jones
  8. Thriller: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
  9. Short stories or poems: Felon: Poems by Reginald Dwayne Betts (reread)
  10. Other Ethnic: Moon of the Crusted Snow by Waubgeshig Rice
  11. Child narrator: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak 
  12. Holiday: Letters from Father Christmas by JRR Tolkien
