As we speed through the end of April, I am beginning my preparations to read more than I did last month. May 2018 is going to be epic in terms of books. Hopefully, I can manage to incorporate more reading into my daily routine. Here are some of my reading plans for the week.
Emily from Books with Emily Fox came up with this genius idea of including one big book (at least) per month. Ever the copy-cat, I am going to give this a try. I am torn between The Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima and The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson.
I am going to ask my family to vote on this one. If you see me slacking off, feel free to throw tomatoes at me because I need to get back into a reading groove and I need to read my big books.
Kill Your TBR Challenges
14. A Book With an LGBT+ Romance
And I Darken by Kiersten White has a love triangle that includes an LGBT+ romance. I don’t know the details but this is all I have heard about this story. My connection with this book is amusing because everyone says it’s about a retelling of some fellow called Vlad the Impaler. I have never heard of him. It’ll be neat to see a female who is characterized by the same attitude toward others. It’s not something I encounter often in the books I read.
1. A Book With Alliteration in the Title
For this challenge, I only have the Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman. I miss me some Victorian paranormal fun times. The last one I had read was The Falconer, which has become one of my all-time-favorites. I heard mixed things about Goodman’s previous work (Eon). Perhaps this will be closer to what I like to read right not at least. I do have copies of her duology before this one.
A Book With Five Words in the Title
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor has five words in the title and it is one of the oldest books on my shelves. It has been on my shelves the longest and I want to attempt to start it this week. If I don’t manage to finish it, that would be okay, too. What matters to me is that I read some of it this week.
A Book With Three or Fewer Colors on the Cover
Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi kind of has three colors? I see the green, white, and lavender. I am counting it for this one challenge and I am hoping it will be a delightful easy read.
Hope your first week of May 2018 is fantastic. What will you be reading this week? Share titles in comments!
