Happy New Year, fellow bookworms! I hope you all had wonderful holidays. Baby, it’s cold outside which means I give myself permission to Amazon and Peapod all of the essentials over the next couple of weeks. Hopefully this will translate into more reading, blogging, and blog-hopping time for me!
Looking Ahead is a new monthly meme hosted by Tina at Reading Between the Pages. At the start of each month, I’ll be posting my anticipated TBR. Here’s what I’m planning on reading in January:
I just finished Sharp Objects last night (actually it was one o’clock this morning) and need a thriller break after the book hangover I’m left with. So I’ll be starting It Ends with Us today. Though I’m not going to quantify it and call it an official goal, this year I’d really like to read one or two books per month that I’ve had on the shelf or on my Kindle for a while.
Little Fires Everywhere is our January book club pick and I can’t wait to read it. I’m hoping it’ll live up to the hype for me. I’m optimistic as there seems to be a good deal of consensus on this one.
The Chalk Man is another much-hyped book but again, I’ve got a really good feeling about it. My stop on the blog tour is coming up on January 18th. There will be a giveaway as well!
I download the audiobook of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine several weeks ago but haven’t started it. I’ve never listened to an audiobook. I’m sure it sounds quite silly but I’m a little intimidated by it. I’m not sure I have the attention span necessary to listen to an audiobook. I’ve promised myself that I would get out of my comfort zone and at least try it.
My stop on the blog tour for Girl Unknown is January 20th and really looking forward to it. A thriller with family drama, a questionable identity, and a gorgeous cover – who could ask for more? And there will be a giveaway!
What are the books you’re most looking forward to reading in January?
