48 Hour Challenge: update the second

Sister Mine - Nalo Hopkinson

Another two hours of reading, and another book finished–Sister Mine, which is weird and lovely. Wonderfully intersectional too. I am confused regarding its winning of the Norton Award, since it does not read as YA to me, nor did I read Makeda as a teenager. But okay, fine. It’s an excellent book and I’m glad it was recognized.


So the updated list:
The Grand Plan to Fix Everything by Uma Krishnaswami-finished
Sister Mine by Nalo Hopkinson-finished
Pointe by Brandy Colbert
Cold Steel by Kate Elliott
A Moment Comes by Jennifer Bradbury
Flygirl by Sherri Smith
Lost Girl Found by Leah Bassoff
A Bride’s Story 2 by Kaoru Mori
She Is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick
Ninth Ward by Jewell Parker Rhodes
Range of Ghosts by Elizabeth Bear


Total time: 3.5 hours reading; 30 min blogging


Now I’m heading home, so I’ll be internetless again. I may manage another update tonight, or it may have to wait till tomorrow morning.
