The lovely Aentee has created yet another awesome reading challenge. This time, it is inspired by everyone’s latest craze: Animal Crossing. Look, I am not hip. I was not on board the Pokemon Go! train. Needless to say, I am also not on the Animal Crossing hype either. My sister was super kind and helped me create my face in the game (my iPod is not compatible with these games. I wish I could join you all).
Surprise! I chose the Cute path (according to my sister, this is what I should start with). Let’s see if I have to cry about that choice because no books fulfill it.
Ahem. Composure. Alright, here we go.
First challenge: read a manga or graphic novel
*Maniacal laughter* I don’t own any comics or manga, because I don’t like that type of book. Sister, you picked the worst path for me. Why is this happening. OH my God.
Ahem. Composure. Alright.
Okay, after a discussion with my sister, I was advised to read a book related to geek culture. So. The one that fits the bill is Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde.
second challenge: pink cover
Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins.
I want to read this book so badly, okay, because this author makes me smile. There is a Southern belle at the center of this book. It’s all I needed to know before picking this one up. I am ready for this.
third challenge: main romantic plot
Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour
Based on my reading this past week, I realize that I can read at least two books at a time. This novel is kind of a mystery and an adventure, mixed in with a lesbian romance. So. It may end up being a nice breather from fantasy novels that I have been reading. Slowly, I have been transitioning into less intense settings. A contemporary should be a good change of pace.
Fourth Challenge: Middle grade/children’s novel
I’ll create a poll to see which one you’d recommend for me.
EDIT: Someone recommended Howl’s Moving Castle. I am kind of intimidated, but let’s give it a shot anyway.
fifth challenge: contemporary
Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
The possibility of me getting to this one seem weak. Nevertheless, I want to get to it at some point over the course of this readathon/reading challenge.
Finally: gosh darn it, I want to read Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood. The trick is to find a nice spot for it on the challenges.
