I tried this last year and failed miserably! Planning my reading is something I have never been great at.

Don’t get me wrong, if I am on a Blog Tour I will be 100% reliable, if I request a proof I will always read it. But sometimes a glittery new book grabs my attention and I am off, like a magpie, eyes wide, chasing the shiny thing.

So don’t hold me to this list. This is the list I came up with today after days of leaving piles in random places around the house and manically counting, groaning and changing my mind. Ask me tomorrow and who knows!

But I need to get this post written, I need to commit, so this is the stack…

I think…

They are a complete mixture of new releases, books I have had for ages, second hand copies and lovely gifted proofs.

I solemnly swear to do my best…

  1. I’ve already started reading a book that wasn’t on my list. It can be flexible. I didn’t reach my goal last year and I don’t think I will this year but its fun to try. Don’t worry about it. Its a good incentive to read those books we’ve had for a while but don’t feel pressured. Have fun
