I have mentioned in the past, I don't do well with strict TBR lists. I am to much of a mood reader for that. I like reading what I want when I want. So being constricted to a set of books per month kind of sucked for. This would often result in me reading less. However, I REALLY love lists- more, I love completing a task and and crossing that task off. There is nothing more satisfying.
Moving on- as many of you know first hand- there are so many books and so little time. I could fill pages and pages in a notebook with all of the books that I would like/need to read. Whenever I am with friends who read (or worse fellow bloggers), I find myself often saying "Oh, I haven't read that" or "I have been meaning to read that" or "Not yet, but it's on my TBR," So many times, it's embarrassing.
SO- The List of Twelve- which I mentioned briefly in my 2016 Bookish Resolutions- twelve books I want to read in 2016. This is a random selection of novels, some I have been saying to myself I have to read, some are classics that I ashamed to say I haven't read, others are books I am just curious about and want to experience. It's an odd assortment. And I am very excited to tackle it.
Pride and Prejudice
2) Jane Eyre
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Ready Player One
6) An Abundance of Katherines
7) The Shadow of the Wind
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The Five People You Meet in Heaven
9) The Archived
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
Benjamin Alire Sanez
11) To Kill a Mockingbird
Note- I am starting the year with Pride and Prejudice, but I am not reading these books in this particular order, I am going to read them when I feel like it- the goal is just to read at least one per month. I love the diversity of this list and I am excited about it. I can't wait to look back on it next January and see if I completed this mini challenge for myself. I'll be referring back to this post throughout the year to help me stay on track and to scratch off the books I have completed.
~Happy Reading Everyone
