I am so excited to be starting off the new year reading with everyone participating in Bout of Books 18! I’m ending 2016 with a bang (more on that later) and want to start 2017 with one as well. I don’t have any real goals, just to read read read! Here are a few of the books I’d like to get through though:
Valiant Gentlemen by Sabrina Murray
Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller
The Man Who Rained by Ali Shaw
I don’t plan to do many reading challenges this year, but this one fits in perfectly with my life, so why not? We signed the papers on our house just this week, so we’ll be moving as soon as it’s built – as soon as 4 months from now! I look around now and I feel a tiny bit of panic at how many books I’m going to have to move. That is where Andi’s Read My Own Damn Books Challenge comes in! My plan is simple; try to get through as many books as I can before we move – either read it or give it away – and winnow down the amount I’ll have to move. I’ll continue on after the move, of course, just to get some of my books read. I mean, I bought them. I should read them. Right?
1st quarter hopefuls are:
How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran
Wonder Women by Sam Maggs
The Vienna Melody by Ernst
Right Ho, Jeeves by PG Wodehouse
The Good Lord Bird by James McBride
And many, MANY, more.
