2019 Reading list

This year – 2019 – I’ve decided to challenge myself by making sure my book picks include literature from around the world. After watching the TED talk by Chimananda Ngozi Adichie – The danger of the single story – where she talks about how narratives are too one-sided, I knew I needed to add more views to my reading list. Read books from corners of the world were you’ve never been! Read books written by men, women, LGBTQ, young, old, high and low. Read about love, hate, struggles, journeys, wins, losses, friendships, family, creativity, learning and change.
