January 2018 Week 2 Reading Plans

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.

true crime

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.


As this is the Saturday of the second week of March 2018, it is time
March is upon us, and thus it is time to share my reading plans for

  1. I’ve heard lots of good things about the Young Elites, but haven’t read ’em yet. I did try Marie Lu recently though with Warcross and loved it, so maybe the YE are next. 🙂
