Hello, all! Long time, no see, huh? Not going to lie–I took a little break over Christmas/New Year which I hadn’t expected to, but I’m back now and ready to go with this blog and all the writing and everything else. I’m hoping to sort out a bunch of new things on here over the next month or so, so keep your eyes peeled!
For now, I thought I’d do a post about what I’m planning to read in January. This year, like I have for the past two or three, I’m taking part in the Goodreads Reading Challenge–where you choose a number of books to try and read over the year. For 2017, I managed (just barely) to hit my goal of 150 books, as you can see here:
However, my goal for 2018 is 180 books, which is going to require some planning. With that in mind, I joined a Habitica challenge that should help me keep on target with the Goodreads Reading Challenge, and which also gives me the task of creating a TBR list for each month. 180 books means I have to read 15 per month, minimum, so this post is me sharing that list.
(A caveat: though I’d like to read every book on this list this month, I probably will not–I’d mostly like to stay on target. Also, obviously, if I see a book I want to read that isn’t on the list, I’m probably not going to stop myself.)
Anyway, the list:
- Black and British: A Forgotten History – David Olusoga.
- It – Stephen King.
- Difficult Women – Roxane Gray.
- Harry Potter y la Piedra Filosofal – J.K. Rowling.
- The Subtle Knife – Philip Pullman.
- In the Blood – Hailey Turner.
- Shattered – Sloane Kennedy.
- Nailbiter, Volume One: There Will Be Blood – Joshua Williamson.
- Nailbiter, Volume Two: Bloody Hands – Joshua Williamson.
- Fix Your Damn Book! – James Osiris Baldwin.
- My Dark Knight – K.A. Merikan.
- Romancing the Beat: Story Structure for Romance Novels – Gwen Hayes.
- Stone Sentinel – Jex Lane.
- Curious – R.G. Alexander.
- 17: Das zweite Buch der Erinnerung – Rose Snow.
Now, since we’re a week into January, I have already been reading–and I am on track–but I’ve only read two books from the above list. Time to get a move on! 😉
What are you reading in January? Let me know if there’s anything you’d recommend!
