Last year I participated in two reading challenges: Women Challenge and European Reading Challenge. Things didn’t work too well, I got derailed with other projects and activities. I only reviewed three books for the former and five for the latter. In spite of my poor results, and the possibility that I may not be compatible with reading challenges, I decided to sign up for three challenges this year:
2014 European Reading Challenge, hosted by Rose City Reader.
2014 Books on France Reading Challenge, hosted by Words and Peace.
2014 Women Challenge, hosted by Peek-a-book!
Furthermore, I’ve decided what my blog’s theme month will be about. As you know, in 2012 I devoted November to José Saramago, and in 2013 I spent the months of May and June writing about Brazilian literature. That made me think that I’d be incurring a grave injustice if I did not follow that up with a Portuguese-language African literature month. So sometime around May I’ll start posting reviews about Angolan, Mozambican, Cape Verdean, Bissau-Guinean and Santomean books: there’ll be novels, short-stories, non-fiction and poetry. I hope this will be informative and interesting.
