We’re now beginning our third week of December, 2017. I am slowly making my way through the Reader’s Crossing challenge, so here is my continued attempts to participate. Okay. So, I made it through most of the cute challenges. I now will cross into Cool territory.
I am first in need of finishing up a middle grade novel, and I am still debating if I’m in the mood to read some contemporary. My current contemporary stash has some nice contenders: The Upside of Unrequited and the final Lara Jean novel are leading the race to my TBR.
I don’t have an unread book written by a celebrity. So, what I am thinking of doing is reading Beauty Queens by Libba Bray. This book deals with celebrity culture and televised competitions. That, and it is a fresh take on a classic.
Another option is to read the second Selection novel, The Elite, as it deals with a royal family and televised competition to be married into that family.
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake won a couple awards. I want to see if it is a fun read. Definitely intrigued by it, especially now that I have read Born Wicked which had a nice take on sisters.
Hopefully, it’ll go by fast, because I read some mixed reviews on this one.
So, this is a bit of a cheat, because I have certain books I want to get to. The cool thing is that we have this Goodreads thing where people share their favorites.
Inge liked Vicious this year, and I have it on my TBR. It is about villains, and this is winter time with gloomy weather. That is one option. I am hesitant to read this one, because that’s the last Schwab book I have that is unread, and I am not really too keen on her Archived books. So.
EDIT: My sister also voted for this one, because, “the cover is pretty.”
set in your country
I am very doubtful that I’ll get to this one, but let’s brainstorm together. Adam Silvera has written two unread books on my shelves. The other contender for this challenge is A Madness so Discreet by Mindy McGinnis. It’s a thriller/mystery novel set in the United States. I’ll have to weigh the options here, because I may be in the mood to cry (Silvera books would then be more appealing) or be curious (McGinnis book would win then).
This is kind of the general list of books I am hoping to get to this week. What are your reading plans for the week?
