Second Week of March 2018 Reading Plans

As this is the Saturday of the second week of March 2018, it is time to share some of my reading plans. Emojiathon is taking place this whole month, and I want to attempt to participate. Besides, there is a half-hearted attempt to satisfy the Of Wonderland reading challenge for its book club. With one exception, all of this week’s books are from the library.

Read a Fantasy

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White is what I am going with for this challenge. It’s supposedly an urban paranormal fantasy, which is one of my favorite genres. I was so excited to hear about it that I grabbed the next two books in the trilogy. Perhaps I can read all of them this week.

Read a Book Everyone has Been recommending

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins was very popular a few years back in BookTube land. While no one directly recommended that book to me, I still want to give it a shot this week.

A Book that Features Travel

Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely is a western that involves travel! Plus, it is a somewhat-new release. It has been on my list of books to purchase for a while. I figured it’d be a good idea to check it out from the library and get a sense of how much I’d enjoy it first. Plus, the cover is beautiful.

A book that involves sports

Come on, I was over the moon when I saw One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake in the library. I haven’t been able to get my own copy just yet, but I want to give it a read while I wait for a chance to purchase it. The first book in the series was so good.

And finally:

Read a Book You Have Not Started Yet and YOu Don’t Know Why

Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr is a book I often encounter and shy away from reading. Perhaps it is because I worry that I am reading fluff. But, I am trying to stop worrying so much about how I am perceived based on what I am reading.

    1. I am a huge paranormal romance fan (kind of?). While the story was fun, Paranormalcy was not quite my thing. I still need to find out what your absolute favorite types of books are, La La! Please share with me. I would love to get to know you better. <3

  1. Good luck with these books! I read Paranormalcy and it’s sequels a couple years back and really enjoyed them. They were really fun to read. 🙂 I didn’t like Sweet Evil that much, but the series gets A LOT better as it goes on. So even if you feel “meh” about the first book, I would suggest continuing on with the series!

    Have a great March Dina!

    1. Ah, thank you so much, Genni! I did read Paranormalcy. It was alright. I did not feel compelled to keep going, but it was an amusing read. I did not keep reading Sweet Evil, just because my anxiety was super high and I returned the books back to the library. I’ll definitely need to visit your blog to see what else you’d recommend! Keep in touch, friend!

  2. The Wicked Lovely series is one of my favorites! I actually re-read it again this year. I don’t think it was fluff at all, and could be pretty dark in some parts. Paranormalcy was cute and fun! I haven’t heard of Sweet Evil myself, but it looks interesting!

    Do You Dog-ear?

    1. Ah! I am Chewbacca-style screeching at the Wicked Lovely series being somewhat dark sometimes. This brings me much joy. I cannot wait to get these books because I have such a good feeling about them. I read a bit of the first book from the library and I realized that I would be in love with that world. Lindsi! I have to check out your blog for more recommendations. Please share with me your favorites as they come. You just sound awesome! High fives!
