Hi guys! How’s your progress with our readathon? As for my case, I have already finished two books Woman Alone and Other Plays and The Yellow Wall Paper. I am now half way through The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath and enjoying it to so much! I have tabbed a lot of passages already. I can already tell it will be a favorite.

How about you guys, what books have you read for our readathon! Share them on twitter, instagram using our official hashtag #WomenRunTheWorldReadathon and also visit our GoodReads group and join in with our discussion. It is not too late to join guys! 🙂 I would love to know what have you been reading!

I would leave you with these videos of powerful spoken word poetry I chanced upon about Feminism! Ahh I am obsessed about Spoken Word Poetry, who’s with me! Happy Reading everyone, but please watch these videos first!

Jenny of Jayne VS Books, Rexy of Reading Rexy, Cath of To All The Books I’ve Read Before, Elena of The Queen Reads, Krish of @krish.reads on IG and I agreed on something awesomesauce!

We decided to host a Feminist Readathon for the month of February. Few days ago it flooded the twitterverse that Emma Watson just made a bookclub Our Shared Shelf tackling books about Feminism or about women in general and equality. I immediately joined, of course.

Because of this, an inspiration hit me like a wrecking ball! Haha! I don’t have a copy of the book Emma Watson chose for the book club, but because I want to read these kinds of books so much and wanted to contribute to this great cause, I did something quite similar to it. I conspired with the girls to read Feminist books this February! When I proposed the idea to them, I was happy that they immediately agreed to it. Making everything much more exciting.

So for the whole month of February we will read as much as Feminist books we could get our hands on. This made me so excited. What better way to read a book about women than read it with your girlfriends! There are no rules girls (and guys if you want to join, I urge you to join us, Feminism is for everybody), all you have to do is prepare your books focusing on Feminism and read the month away (you actually have 29 days to squeeze in a lot of books! *wink*)

Maybe you are wondering what are these books?

I took the liberty to do the research for you! There is a plethora of books to choose from, so you wouldn’t have any excuse. They are just waiting for you to read them.

You can check these lists:

 

Share this on your social media accounts, your own blog, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook (if you wish) and use the hashtag #WomenRunTheWorldReadathon I know it is a bit too long hahah! We want to involve as many people as possible so spread the word!

 

I also made a group on Goodreads Women Run The World Read-A-Thon, please feel free to join and add the books you consider reading! This will be so much fun!

Hope this will be a success, and who knows, we can do this as a yearly thing! So prepare your books, and let us exchange thoughts about what we have read! Looking forward to have a great chat with all of you! 🙂
