This year I have set the lofty goal of 80 novels (with a stretch goal of 85). In 2013 I comfortably made it to 80, but keeping in mind we’ve got some big things in store for 2014 (i.e. cross country move…), I think this is a good place to start.
Keeping that in mind, here are my Reading Resolutions of 2014:
- No books that contain any of the following plot devices: secret children, former high school flames or, a “summer that changed everything.”
- I will not pick up any best-sellers from the last 10 years that I have not previously felt motivated to read (ugh, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, I’m looking at you).
- If going the historical fiction route, I will try to read something that doesn’t feature Catherine the Great or any of Henry VIII’s wives, sisters, cousins or relatives.
- Life is too short for books that are not interesting; I will sample before I buy and commit.
What are your 2014 Reading Resolutions? Any good books I should put on my list?
