Here are the Reading Challenges of 2017!
Challenge created by RBLB
1. Reread a book you rated 5 stars in 2015.
A: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
I reread the Wrath and the dawn at least three times when it was release in 2015. I love the rich and compelling retelling of A Thousand and One Nights. I love the beauty and lush relationship of Shahrzad & Khalid. I highly suggest to read if you are looking for any release from 2015.
2. A book with a red cover
A :This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
This Savage Song has been on my TBR list ever since JessetheReader has mentioned it a couple times in his videos! This novel is strange and unique - where violence created monsters. I have meet Victoria Schwab in October - The sweetest and kindest person I' he met. I am really thrill to read it soon.
3. Finish a series you started
A: Zodiac by Romania Russel
Wow. I see this cover many times when I went on a Chapter run, yet I never really picked it up until I grab it off my friends bookshelf. I am really impressed with this beautiful story of space and the zodiac signs. I thought the character was young, naive, yet learn to grow into her role as a Guardian to her Cancerain Planet that was tragically hit by darkness that could be the lost 13th sign.
4. A book reccomended to you that you wouldn't have picked yourself
A: The First Time She Drowned by Kerri Kletter
How this novel gotten my attention was when I tweeted to Romina Russel and she tweeted me back a book recommendation. I have not heard of the author before, however, I am intrigue. Thank Romina Russel and I cannot wait to pick this novel up!
5. A book with a name in the title
A: Anna dressed in blood by Kendare Blake
I met Kendare Blake in October and she is witty and clever ! I have read her Anti-Goddess series and just started reading Three Dark Crowns. I recently been getting into horror and thriller and been wanting to read Anna Dressed in Blood.
6. A book released in 2017
A: A list of cages by Robin Roe
This book is supposed to be a book that is to be close to the heart. I really want to read it! This novel is supposed to be heart-warming and wonderful. Its about friendship, lost, healing and kindess.
7. Read something outside your reading comfort zone
A: Milk and Honey by Rapi Kuar
Poetry has always been outside my reading comfort zone. It’s not that I dislike it - Sometimes I don't notice the true meaning behind it. I read it and I think ' WOW This was really deep and beautiful' , not infer the real meaning behind it. Milk and Honey was given to me, and I watched Rupi Kaur speak on TedTalk. Poetry is one that people really enjoyed and loved or don't.
8. A book in the U.K
A: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
I have been on the search for more Jack the Ripper novels forever since Ripper by Amy Carol Reeves (Such a great gripping trilogy). I hear many great things from the book community and cannot wait to see how this retelling of the shadow serial killer on Whitechapel portrays....
9. A book with a women on the cover
A: The Hate you give by Angie Thomas
I cannot wait to read this novel. On Twitter and latest booktube and book bloggers have been saying hype about this new debut novel. I do not know the whole gist, thats great, I want to go in opinion free. I am looking forward to reading The Hate You Give.
10. A book set in the future
A: Replica by Lauren Oliver
I met Lauren Oliver!! It was awesome! She is hilarious, sarcastic and beautiful! I have read only one book by her - Panic. This novel is strange and clever because it is not in one but two perspectives - you can read Lyra then Gemma, Gemma then Lyra, Lyra, Gemma or Gemma, Lyra. Wow that was a bit of a tongue twister. Basically, you can read it in different ways. Clever, Lauren. I chose this book that's set in the future because it could be possible in the future.
11. Start a new series
A: Citadal by Kate Mosse
I was beyond happy to grab this book off the 80% table at Chapters...Unfortunately I did not notice it was the third book to a trilogy!!!!! AHHHHH- It’s okay. I’m going to make it work. I been waiting to buy more adult books for myself and this summary sounded right up my alley of historical fiction, angels and demons and powerful and smart women.
12. A book by a favorite author
A: Long Way Home by Katie McGarry
Any books by Katie McGarry are blessed and made with gold and silver. I love her novels - The Pushing the Limits series and The Thunder Roads series. You will find quickly that I will never stop recommending her books. They are sooooo deep and great! I highly recommend. Long Way Home is the third release to the Thunder Roads series. I am really overjoyed for Long Way Home.
