January 1, 2012 = Official start of my next 100 book challenge! After completing my 100 books for 2011 I’ve decided to up my personal goal to 110 books for 2012. (What’s the fun in doing the same thing every year, right?) You can check out my challenge page to see what specific challenges I’ve signed up for. I’ve kept it small this year so that I can continue to be eclectic in my reading choices.
Top books I’m hoping to read this year are:
- Inkheart Trilogy by Cornelia Funke
- The Magicians by Lev Grossman
- Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier
- Be Different by John Elder Robison
- Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
- The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
- The Apothecary’s Daughter by Julie Klassen
- Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse #12) by Charlaine Harris
Kinda small list, I know, but if I were to list all of the books I’m excited to read this year we’d be here for a while! If you want to recommend stuff for me to read check out my lists from 2010 and 2011 and let me know what you think I’ll like.
As always, I encourage you to try your own reading challenges! My biggest piece of advice is start small! There is nothing wrong with saying you want to read 10 books in a year! Make a small goal, meet that goal, then up it! Tell me about your own goals, and the books you’re excited about reading below.
Good luck, and happy reading!!
