So I wasn’t kidding when I said that I wanted to read more, and make sure to keep the reviews coming on my blog. I said in my resolutions that I wanted to read a minimum of two books a month, for a grand total of 24 for the year. That’s my minimum.
Last year I started the year late with the Good Reads Reading Challenge, so I set myself up for 15 books. Jumping it to 24 isn’t a large increase, in the grand scheme of things. But, I think it’s a good building block. And in 2019, we’ll see how well I did this year and adjust from there again. But I have started a good momentum for reading again and I want to grow it slowly, so I don’t lose sight of the other tasks on my list, or get overwhelmed with one thing on its own.
That being said, my January TBR (To Be Read) list is pretty hefty.
What am I hoping to read this month?
I’m looking to finish a couple books I started in 2017, to start with:
- Message of the Crow by Ellen Dugan
- Shattered Circle by Cassandra Larsen
I’m fairly early on in Message of the Crow, but I’m almost 80% done with Shattered Circle, so I think that finishing both will be doable.
I’m also looking to read the following:
- Twisted Fate by Jessi Elliott (ARC – Watch for the Review in early Feb! And Cover Release tomorrow!)
- Resurrection by Tucker Malarkey
- Paper Princess by Erin Watt
- The Selection by Kiera Cass
Now, if you’re keeping up, that’s 5 books to finish in January. That’s a ton considering I was only originally thinking of doing 2 a month. I had been hoping to finish Shattered Circle before the new year, but life, ya know. But I will finish it soon. Very soon.
Over all, I’m pretty excited for my January TBR.
Do you have a TBR for January? Is it one book or multiple? Let me know down below!
