Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful time during the holidays, and that 2017 brings us all good things. 💖
January is going to be a busy month for me. I’ll be incapacitated for a little while, since I’m taking my wisdom teeth out at the beginning of the month. That means I will need rest, which translates to a lot of reading time! I still tried to keep my TBR relatively small, though, as not to overwhelm myself.
One of my 2017 resolutions is to try new things, so this will be the first year I’m doing a TBR Jar! This is a little different from the ones circling around. Instead of writing down challenges I need to complete, I wrote down the titles of 50 different books that are currently on my TBR. Some of them I own physical copies of, others only digital copies. This is my attempt to catch up on all the books I need to read, and hopefully it’ll keep me motivated throughout the year. This months picks were:
I legit only heard good things about this book. It’s a boy-meets-girl Contemporary Young Adult novel that tells the story of Natasha and Daniel, and the romance that blossoms between them.
A Romantic Suspense novel or, as I like to call it, my guilty pleasure. It’s your typical ‘badass Alpha-male meets gorgeous woman and they fight a lot but fall in love’ kind of thing, but I have to say I’m looking forward to it.
OTHER BOOKS I WANT TO GET TO
There were a lot of books I wanted to read last year that I didn’t get the chance to, so I’m going to try to spread them out during the months. There are also some new releases I’m dying to get my hands on, but you’ll see a more detailed list on my Anticipated January Reads post.
I’m graduating at the end of this year! I’m going to write my dissertation on Gothic Literature, so I’ll be reading and rereading a lot of Gothic books this year. For this month, my picks are:
I actually started reading this one last year, but had to put it down because life got too busy. I really enjoyed the beginning, though, and am curious to see how the story unfolds.
We all know the story, but I’m kind of ashamed to say I never actually read this one? But I’m definitely going to rectify that mistake right away! 😀
