Ladyslott | 1880 comments PBT Monthly Tag - Read at least one book for the monthly tag:

January: Science - The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women
February: Asia - Do Not Say We Have Nothing
March: Autobiography - A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier, This Boy's Life
April: Strong Women - A Gathering of Shadows; Cress; Three Sisters, Three Queens

That's as far as I got this year, just too much going in my life and reading took a back seat.
