January, 2018 Week 1 Reading Plans

Oh my God, it is the first week of January, 2018. Everyone panic with me, please. For this week, I am trying to balance the monthly reading challenges I have devised for the year. (Heh.

My pals Inge and Wendy are two of the hosts for this readathon. There are different challenges in relation to mental health books. However, let me be honest with you: I am probably not going to get a bingo there. I am simply participating by reading the mental health books I have on my shelves.

It is kind of a stretch, but I can also give The Upside of Unrequited a try this week, too. Who knows.

History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

finally

I have to wrap up Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean At the End of the Lane. Also: I want to somehow put a dent on Kendare Blake’s Three Dark Crowns.
