I wish you all a very happy, healthy and bookfilled New Year!
This is the list of new releases for the month of January 2013 I am looking forward to:
Jayne Ann Krentz – Dream Eyes – Dark Legacy 2
Jude Deveraux – Moonlight Masquerade – Edilean 9
C.L. Wilson – The Winter King
Gail Carriger – Etiquette and Espionage – Finishing School 1
Kim Harrison – Ever After – Rachel Morgan
Lara Adrian – Edge of Dawn – Midnight Breed
Yasmine Galenorn – Haunted Moon – Otherworld 13
I have read a total of 17 books and 2 short stories this month.
I have read a total of 233 books and 17 short stories this year, which is a little less, only 6 books, than last year.
Did I match my reading solutions for last month?
I have read 3 cozy mysteries:
- Kari Lee Townsend – Tempest in the tea leaves
- Karen E. Olson – Pretty in Ink
- Kari Lee Townsend – Corpse in the Crystal Ball
3 books longer than 1 year on my shelf:
- Jacquelyn Frank – Noah
- Lynn Viehl – Dead of Night
- Jennifer Ashley – The pirate next door
and 4 books I have won:
- Jenn Bennett – Leashing the Tempest
- Theresa Romain – Season for Surrender
- Pamela Palmer – A warrior’s desire
- Laura Kaye – West of Want
I did manage to make my reading solutions last year every month, and it encourages me to continue doing this. I will read at least one book which has been on my shelves longer than a year (which means a choice out of hundreds of books), two cozy mysteries and one book I have won.
I am also going to try to keep to a bookbuyingbudget, as I really went overboard lately. Of course I will keep pre-ordering my autobuy author books as much as possible, but stop buying many new authors till I have finished some series on my shelves. I am not sure I can give up buying secondhand books at bargain rates though. Tell me, can you stick to a resolution like this, or only for a week or so?
