This is my third New Year; New Challenges post and I have to tell you, I still get excited writing them. Just knowing that I’m beginning another 365 day period of challenging myself to read an ass-ton of books excites me. Since I completed the 110 books I set as my goal for 2012, I’ve decided to stick with tradition and add another 10 books to my goal for 2013. Therefore, my starting goal for this year will be 120 books! In case you missed all of the reading challenges I’ve signed up for (on top of my overall goal), you can click here to view my progress.
Here’s what I’m looking forward to reading (in no particular order) in 2013:
- The Tutor’s Daughter by Julie Klassen
- Shades of Earth by Beth Revis
- Sever by Lauren DeStefano
- Lord of Darkness by Elizabeth Hoyt
- Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris
- Any Duchess Will Do by Tessa Dare
- The Mistress by Tiffany Reisz
I know that this is a bit of a short list, but I’m hoping that as the year progresses, more new and exciting books will be announced from my favorite authors. 2012 was a great year for both new books and additions to series that I already loved, so I’m hoping that 2013 will be just as fun, if not more so!
As always, I encourage you to try your own reading challenges! My biggest piece of advice is to start small. There is nothing wrong with saying that you want to read 10 books this year. Make a small goal, meet that goal, then increase it! Tell me about your own goals, as well as the books you’re excited about reading, below.
