This week is officially marking a halfway point of May 2018. While I have been slowly making my way through my huge TBR piles, I am hoping to keep trying to pick up the pace. In other words, I am catapulting my reading with some ambitious plans. Without further stalling, here are my ambitious reading plans for the week.

A Book With a One-Word Title: Hunger by Michael Grant is on my list of books I desperately want to tackle before the end of the month. I have read these books ages ago and I am aiming to reread them as I repurchase used copies of the series. My reading plan for the rest of the year is to revisit this series. It is a grim story but I do enjoy the characters and their story arcs.

 

 

A Collection of Short Stories from a Genre You’re Unfamiliar With: Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman is not a collection of short stories. However, it is a fairly short novel and, more importantly, it is from a genre I am totally unfamiliar with. I have read only a steampunk interpretation of Westerns as a genre. This one, from what I gathered, is more of a faithful adaptation to the staples of this said genre.

A Book With an Animal on the Cover: Nightshade by Andrea Cremer is a book I am interested in reading this week. I want to contrast this take on werewolves compared to Twilight and Shiver. 

A Book With a Five-Word Title: Days of Blood and Starlight is a given here. Obviously, my heart has been aching for more Karou, Akiva, Zuzana, and Mik. That’s all I have to say on this matter.

A Book With a Character With a Disability: I am unsure if this is accurate but I recall Talon from Under the Never Sky having a disability that I foolishly cannot remember. I am now on the second book in the trilogy. It should be a fun ride.

Oh. And finally. The First Book in a Series: I am thinking of getting to Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds. Amandla Sternberg plays the main character in the film and I am a fan of their work (they use they/them pronouns). It’ll be nice to read something a little different than the rest of my pile.

Obviously. This is an ambitious pile. I want to read more but I recognize that I read slowly.

    1. Oh, Greg, the first book in that trilogy was so good! I am hoping to get to the Blood and Starlight book this week. Will report back if it’s as good (or better!) than the first book.

  1. I read The Darkest Minds back when it first came out, and never continued with the series. Now that the movie adaption is coming out, it’s my personal mission to reread book one and finally finish two and three.
