1// Read a book with blue on the cover
I have been wanting to read this one for a really long time (since before it even came out!), but never got around to it. I'm borrowing it from my awesome book-loving friend, so I really need to get it back to her ASAP. And the cover is GORGEOUS and blue.
2// Read a book by an author who shares the same first letter of your last name
You have absolutely no idea how hard it was to find a book with an author whose last name begins with Y. It was pretty much either The 5th Wave or… The 5th Wave. I seriously had a ton of trouble finding a book to satisfy the challenge.
The 5th Wave and Falling Kingdoms both satisfy this challenge.
4// Read the last book you acquired
For this challenge, I decided to choose The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. It is a super short read so it shouldn't be too hard to read without letting go of it, even if I do have to take a break from reading. Also, I have been wanting to read more classics, so there's that aspect of it as well.
6// Read a book you really want to read
People always seem to talk about Shadow and Bone, and I want to know what they're all talking about! The Darkling is always brought up in conversation, and even though the book sounds great in general, I want to know why everyone seems to love this character that is so bad.
7// Read seven books
The additional books to reach the seven book goal may change, but I have been wanting to read Looking For Alaska for a while (especially since I've seemed to enjoy every John Green book I read more than the last) and I also finally got my hands on a copy of Etiquette and Espionage, so I figured I'd give them a shot if I can squeeze them in this week.
