My lovely pal Jolien talked about the Pop Sugar Reading Challenge in one of her posts. Since it’s hard to find a guide to my TBR sometimes, I am going to give this challenge a try in between readathons (or somehow I can do both). Here are my reading plans for January 2018’s week 2.
A Book About a Villain or Anti-Hero
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
It is also on my list of series I want to get to this year. This book would be my first Marie Lu book in years. I’d forgotten whether I liked the book I read by her (Legend). Hopefully, this one will be a good experience.
a book about death or grief
We Are Okay by Nina LaCour
Nina LaCour’s most recent novel has the most beautiful cover. Almost-anime like with cheerful colors, the book is tricks you into thinking it’s a bubbly journey. I know better, because I read reviews. Heh. Regardless, I am ready for the heart break.
A Madness so Discreet by Mindy McGinnis
I have been reading this book for 84 years and I just want to incorporate it in more reading challenges so I can finish it. It’s not a bad story by any means, but it is also a tough read because of the author’s exploration of mental illness, hospitals, and crime. Granted, this is not a thriller about criminals necessarily (not at first), but it does have a detective and an ongoing search for killers and their motives. (It’s really good, I swear. Just dark, that’s all).
a book about time travel
The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
Pirates who travel through time? That is all I know about this book. Besides, the main character is a woman of color. I think the author is also a person of color. Please correct me if I am wrong.
gosh dang it.
Finally. Because, gosh darn it, I want to get to Soulless by Gail Carriger. I think it’s a work that can fulfill the *feminist* category, but I am not sure.
