IndigAThon and November Is Here!

Sharing is caring!

National Indigenous History Month

November is National Indigenous History Month, and as such there is a read-a-thon hosted by Et Tu Brody? (Twitter | Youtube) and Thor.Wants.Another.Letter (Twitter | Youtube) called IndigAThon! A whole month of reading literature by Indigenous authors!

I’m clearly excited about it, what about you?

A colourful background of light blue, red and yellow. On top is a white square titled IndigAThon 2020. There is a table of nine squares that reads: Intersectionality, New To You, Other Than 5CT, Middle Grade, Free Space, Buddy Read, Other Than US, Group Book, and Non-bookish media.

For the month of November, I’m going to try and read three books back-to-back, that cover as many squares as possible each. I can’t read super fast any more, so this will be a challenge for me!

IndigAThon TBR List

Love After The End edited by Joshua Whitehead

This book is an anthology about Two-Spirit scifi and romance. I’ve dug into the first story already, and I have to say that it’s a great read so far!

From left-to-right, top-to-bottom, the squares this covers will be:

Intersectionality, Other Than 5CT, Buddy Read, and Other Than US.

Heartbeat Braves by Pamela Sanderson

This is a romance and part one of a series. I’m hoping that this book will hook me in for more!

From left-to-right, top-to-bottom, the squares this covers will be:

New To You and Group Book.

Race to the Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse

This book is also the start to a series! It’s meant for a younger demographic than what I normally read, so we’ll see how well I do.

From left-to-right, top-to-bottom, the squares this covers will be:

Middle Grade and Free Space.

Bonus Book! Anoka by Shane Hawk

As a bonus book, if I finish the three before it, I’m hoping to get to read Anoka by Shane Hawk! It’s a collection of Indigenous horror, and I’m so stoked for this to be on my list.

If I don’t get to it in November, I’m certainly going to try for December!

Activism Work

This is what will cover my Non-Bookish Media square to finish off the list. For those that know me in my personal life, you know that I’ve been doing volunteering for a Land Back Camp.

I’m continuing my work there this month, with a very critical lens pointed toward my whiteness.

I’ve made mistakes in the past. I will continue to make mistakes. All I can do is keep trying to make myself a better person.
