March is upon us, and thus it is time to share my reading plans for its first week. I intend to catch up on readathons to increase my reading for the whole month. From March 3rd to the 9th, Read-O-Rama will take place among the bookish community. Naturally, I want to participate while also juggling my participation in the Of Wonderland book club as well.
Read a Book with Rama in the title
The most beautiful coincidence took place while I was brainstorming for this challenge. For Of Wonderland’s book club, we have to read a book related to fire (either in the title, cover, or plot). Surprisingly, An Ember in the Ashes fulfills both challenges. It has RAMA in the title, and it has a fire image in its title. Mission accomplished: I have officially connected these two reading events. Read-O-Rama and Of Wonderland come together in this challenge.
read a lgbtq+ book
As I have just finished a Nina LaCour book (and was mildly impressed), I will delve into another Adam Silvera book. Leaning more toward They Both Die at the End. However, I can be swayed to read History is All You Left Me. Both novels are #ownvoices LGBTQ+ representations. Here is another Read-O-Rama challenge satisfied.
New to you author
The first Veronica Rossi book, on my currently-reading pile, fulfills this challenge. A word of caution: I do not have the book in this ugly cover. I have the nice blue cover instead. So far, this book is amusing. It’s cute.
A book published in spring
The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead was published in April. Funnily enough, I have not been reading this book even though it is right by my bed. It is time to remedy this nonsense.
Read Seven Books
I am not going to be doing the challenge of reading a book recommended by a host. Another thing I am not doing is also borrowing a book. The idea is laughable because of my high anxiety.
Instead, I want to give Twilight a read and perhaps also Hush, Hush.
