Happy 2015 everyone!
With a new year comes a new TBR list, and this year i’ve decided to make an effort to really mix up the books I read each month. My 2015 Goodreads Challenge is set at 60 books, which is my most ambitious yet. Is this optimism going to wane as the year goes on? Probably. Do I care? Not really, no, I do love a good book!
January is actually kicking off with 6 titles, though two of them are quite short in length so I should happily hit goal for January 2015.
Ready Player One – Ernest Cline
A dystopian SciFi set in a virtual world that is filled to the brim with cheesy 80’s references. What more could I ask for? This has come highly regarded from many people and i’m already really digging it.
Double Take – J.K. Pendragon
A paranormal romance set in ancient Egypt featuring magical themes, Double Take is set to release 28 January 2015 and i’ll have a review up around then. If it sounds like your cup of tea, then do get your pre order in now!
The Iron Trial (Magisterium #1) – Holly Black & Cassandra Clare
Holly Black and Cassandra Clare are both authors I have enjoyed in the past so this super team is sure to impress with Book #1 in the new Magisterium series.
Widdershins (Whyborne & Griffin Book 1) – Jordan L. Hawke
A historical paranomal romance, Widdershins came as a recommendation from my partner who wouldn’t shut up about it. I don’t read enough historical fiction so I hope this one ignites a passion for the genre.
Jason (Anita Blake #23) – Laurell K Hamilton
What can I say, I am a sucker for Anita Blake books and Laurell K Hamilton in general. Jason is #23 in the series and I assume will be more of the same, supernatural beasties getting hot and bothered.
Coraline – Neil Gaiman
Finally Coraline, which has been sitting ignored on my list for far too long. I found it discounted on the kindle store so I am going to get on with it finally. I adore everything i’ve read of Neil’s work so far and the film adaptation was quite remarkable.
Looking at these choices, my taste in books really IS all over the place… which is actually one of the great things about reading primarily on my Kindle. Very safe to read out in public!
Have a great year everyone, and remember to set realistic goals for the future.. unlike my own.
