April 2018 has proved to be a quick month but I have not been reading as well as I should. So, I am attempting to increase my reading this month to hit these reading goals. Here are my reading plans for April’s final week.
The Bookish 2018 Reading Challenges
A book you bought for the cover for the cover
I am going to aim for a read-through of Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr. Ironically, the copy I have has no dust jacket, so my cover of this book is plain dark green. *Thumbs up* It’s okay, though, because this book’s cover is beautiful.
An Author’s Debut
Storm Front is Jim Butcher’s debut novel, and it is also the beginning of the Dresden Files. I need to read this book to determine if I want to continue with these books (or even books like them). I am hoping to enjoy it. Crossing fingers and toes.
A book by an author from your state
Julie Kagawa is from California! So, I am hoping to get to Iron King this week, too. I just have not given her work a shot even though I had bought quite a few of her books in this series. My expectations are not high at all.
A book with a one-word title
Twilight is one I want to revisit. I could use some light fluff with a touch of supernatural things. Plus, it was mentioned in Parks and Rec and the reference made me smile. Besides, I want to continue with the books as I have been revisiting the movies. Bella Swan and Edward Cullen still have magic, it seems.
A book whose cover uses three or fewer colors
Hush, Hush is another one I want to get to this week. It should be fairly quick to go through. Patch and Nora also have the magic still going as I tend to look up quotes from this book series often.
A book that explores the concept of beauty
Finally: I want to try to get at least Radical Beauty and some of my language and style books. The mission is to get a feel for books I have not tried to read in a long time (or stuff I have never read before).
What will you read this week?
