A Rather Reaching Attempt to Work on my Reading Challenges 2018

I have not been focusing my reading on the Popsugar reading challenges 2018. Mostly, I have been making more of an effort to seek shorter readathons. Anyway, I am trying to have back up for when the readathons are not working for me. Needless to say, this week, I am going for a rather reaching attempt to work on my challenges.

#KillYourTBR Reading Challenge

Luckily for me, I was able to find this year-long challenge called #KillYourTBR. Here is a link to the full list of prompts.

Reading Challenge 1: A Book with a Character’s Name in the Title

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin is perfect for this challenge. It is something I have wanted to read for a while. If you are extra aware of my hauled books, you would also note that this book was on there.

Reading Challenge 2: A Book with an Animal on the Cover

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater has a werewolf on the cover. Boom. Plus, I have been trying to read more of Stiefvater’s stuff. This trilogy is my next series by her.

Reading Challenge 3: A Book with Nature on the Cover

I am aiming to work my way through the Spiderwick books. Right now, I am about to start the Seeing Stone (book 2). It coincidentally has nature on the cover. Perfect!

A Book About or Featuring a Sport

I think Gone by Michael Grant has mentions of surfing. Your girl is definitely reaching here, but I want to squeeze this book in my reading before the month is up.

Next Book in a Series You Started

The next book in the Percy Jackson books is Titan’s Curse. Perhaps I can manage to read this one this week.  I am enjoying the books quite a bit and they are easy reads. Definitely, I want to manage to finish this beginning series this month.

Finally:

A Book Set in a Country that Fascinates You

I want to squeeze in The Iron King by Julie Kagawa and it is all about fairies. Their culture always fascinates me, to be honest. Hopefully, this will be a fair manifestation of what fairies are about.

What are you hoping to read this week? Any overlap between our reading plans here?

  1. The only book I’ve read off this list is Linger and uggghh, I hated that series. I don’t know what it is, but for some reason I just cannot seem to connect to Stiefvater’s writing like everyone else. It’s so frustrating! Her whole Wolves of Mercy Falls series was a horrible experience for me (especially because I forced myself through them all during a readathon instead of stopping and trying again some other time – do not recommend!) and while I really enjoyed the first Raven Boys book, I was mostly just “okay” with The Dream Thieves and Blue Lily, Lily Blue. I don’t even know when I’ll get around to The Raven King. So yeah, I hope you like Linger a lot more than I did! Though you seem to have good experiences with her work so I’m sure you will. 🙂

  2. Don’t have super high expectations of The Iron King, it deals more with romance from my recollection than a lot with the fairies. ._. But I hope you will enjoy it more than me.
