So, back in 2013 I made a personal goal here on the blog to read 30 books. I posted a post at the end of every month that listed the books I had read and gave a brief (sometimes not so brief) review of the book(s) in question. I ended up reading 29 books. Then this year happened; 2014. I read nothing. I attempted to start to read a book, two even, but never finished either. I just couldn't do it. Life is busy as hell, and I just couldn't find the time to dedicate to reading. But I love to read, and so in order to force me back into that wonderful habit of reading, I decided to make a companion 'Blind Spot' series this year. Yup, I'm bringing back 'A Fistful of Reads', except this year I'm asking you to play along!
Here's the deal; I'm selecting 12 books (a book for each month) that I am going to commit (or at least try and commit) to reading. My goal is to read a book each month. I'm inviting you to do the same. Now, I understand that a book each month could be a bit much, especially when we all lead busy lives, so I'm not fastening any rules here. Basically, just pick a handful, 3 or 5 maybe, and try to read them before the end of the year. Once you've read one, blog about it, review it, break it down...and send me a link and I'll tag it in my end of the month post.
Not too hard, right?
There is no deadline here. You don't have to have a list to me by any specific time. You don't have to post every month. You don't have to post in January. Hell, you can read one book all year, finish it by December 31st and I'll still tag you in my December post!
If you read it, I will tag it.
So, here are my picks for the year:
|I've read 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' years ago and have always intended to finish the trilogy, but haven't gotten around to it, so I'm counting these as one (a package deal).|
