Happy New Year everyone! I hope that 2013 brings to you lots of wonderful books to read and plenty of spare time to curl up with them.
I’ve avoided making any formal reading resolutions for the new year, but I do want to focus on completing the four reading challenges I’ve committed to and whittle down my to-read shelves (taking more off of the shelf than I am putting on the shelf). To that end, I am reviving a routine I used to do each month where I list what I plan to read for the upcoming month and hope someone out there will hold me accountable (I’m kidding. Sort of).
So what will I be reading in January?
For Reading Challenges:
- Concerto to the Memory of an Angel by Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt (for the Books on France Challenge)
- The Long Road Home: The Aftermath of the Second World War by Ben Shephard (for the 2013 TBR Pile Challenge)
- Dark Places by Gillian Flynn (for the Wishlist Challenge)
For Book Groups:
- ???? I have joined a new book group that will meet on the 7th at which time we will discuss The Night Circus (which I did not like at all) but I do not know what the book for February is yet; since the meetings are the first Monday of the month I will probably at least need to start the book in January. The other book group I participate in has not even made a choice for January yet (there were only two of us at our December meeting, and with the holidays I don’t think a decision has ever been made).
Another small resolution I am making is that I am going to strive and post at least twice a week. I’d like to do three, even four, but realistically with my workload lately and some other things I am comfortable committing to two posts and if I can get another one in during the week then that is just a bonus for you 🙂
What will you be reading this month?
