As I’ve mentioned, I’m back to school this fall. I’m doing my BA, majoring in communications. I’m attending Simon Fraser University and they have a specific requirement that you take a certain number of credits outside your major. So this semester I’m taking two Communications courses, an English course and a Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies course. I just thought it would be fun to share my reading lists (non-technical).

  • Kiss of the Fur Queen by Tomson Highway
  • The Night Wanderer by Drew Hayden Taylor
  • Red: A Haida Manga by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas
  • Twilight by Stephanie Meyers
  • Angel Wing Splash Pattern by Richard Van Camp
  • Kynship: The Way of Thorn & Thunder by Daniel Heath Justice

I’ve read Twilight and oddly, since the movies have come out (and Breaking Dawn), I’ve come to dislike the series even more. We’ll be discussing it in our Gender Studies class so it should be interesting in the least. It’s bothered me that Bella never took control of anything herself and was always the damsel in distress, but as it’s been pointed out before, Twilight is kinda brain candy.

I’ve also read Red and absolutely loved the illustrations. Most of these books are for my English course (Intro to Fiction) and the professor is taking a First Nations approach to the semester. I’m looking forward to reading more books and expanding my horizons.

Have you read any of these books before?
