I set some lofty reading goals for 2013 that I didn’t quite attain. I ended up adjusting my reading challenge on Goodreads and managed to read 22 books. I decided I want to be more intentional with reading so I’ve set my 2014 Reading Challenge to 40 books. Knowing me, it will be mostly novels.
My list of novels includes:
- Meg Langslow Mysteries by Donna Andrews ~ I started reading these several years ago and read all of them up through 2008. I discovered Ms. Andrews has continued to write more. Currently I am reading Some Like It Hawk and I just picked up Duck the Halls.
- Several historical novels by Sharon Kay Penman ~ She did a trilogy about Henry II and Eleanor. I’ve got book 1 on hold through interlibrary loan and book 2 is coming through paperback swap. I’ll read book 3 from the library eventually.
- The Hobbit
- The Hunger Games Trilogy
- Re-reading the Harry Potter Series
As I look over all the books that I want to read, I’m starting think that I may need to carve out more intentional reading time to read novels because my list of “want to read” far exceeds my 3 books a month (36 total) plus 4 (for a total of 40 read in 2014).This just covers novels. It doesn’t even begin to address the non-fiction that I’ve been reading or hope to read.
A couple of my friends have posted a link to a Bingo Card based Reading Challenge. It looks interesting and I’ve decided I want to try the “expert” level and fill out the whole card. Maybe I can do it twice.
What are you planning to read in 2014?
