My Ambitious Spring Break Reading List #ReadDiverseLit

Books on pier

Yes, my spring break reading list is not realistic. I doubt I can read them all within the next 11 or so days. There’s nothing wrong with being optimistic, right? I’m a Libra, so I like having choices. Some of them even qualify for our Diversity Reading Challenge.

So here are the books on my stack (real and virtual) to read during spring break:

The Making of Asian American by Erika Lee has been on my wish list for a while. I saw it at my library so I of course, I grabbed it!

We Too Sing America: South Asian, Arab, Muslim, and Sikh Immigrants Shape Our Multiracial Future by Deepa Iyer: Another library find. It’s ambitious of me to believe that I can read 2 non-fiction books in one week, but I will try. I’m just a slow non-fiction reader.

Sister of Mine by Sabra Waldfogel. I first noticed this novel because a reader commented on how hard it was to find a book with a person of color on the cover. But then I read the book description and it sounds so good:

When two Union soldiers stumble onto a plantation in northern Georgia on a warm May day in 1864, the last thing they expect is to see the Union flag flying high—or to be greeted by a group of freed slaves and their Jewish mistress. Little do they know that this place has an unusual history.

The Rejected Writer’s Book Club by Suzanne Kelman: A novel about a book club and writers? Count me in. I read the first few pages and it looks like a fun read.

I’m going to stop at 4 for my list. I’ll be happy if I finish all of these!

What are you reading for spring break?
