I am so grateful to be headed into another year of reading. Last year I didn’t meet my reading goal, but I did read some very good books. So not being able to meet the reading goal wasn’t that big of a deal. This year I want to retackle my goal of reading more books on my book shelf. I do tend to purchase books even when I have shelves of books that I haven’t begun to read yet. Hopefully my reading goal this year is filled with all the books currently on my book shelf.
This year I sat a goal of thirty books to read. That is a fairly small goal compared to my last year goal of 75. I am hoping to surpass my goal this year, we shall see.
For the month of January I read four books. I must say that is a great start to the new year. All four books were already located on my bookshelf except for You will not have my hate. I picked this book up while traveling from the Dollar Store. Yes, the Dollar Store does have a very good book selection, so check it out the next time you are there.
- Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks. I love historical fiction! I know I usually refrain from rating books on here, but I have to give this book a 4 out of 5. I teared up more than a few times. The author did an awesome job of pulling you into the novel, giving you all the details you needed. Making you feel as if you were there. The ending was beautiful. I do hope there is a sequel.
- You will not have my hate by Antoine Leiris. When I started reading this book, I didn’t plan to finish it. The beginning wasn’t good. I think that’s more because I thought the book was fiction based. No, this is a true story and it reads like a diary. If you have ever harbored hate for someone this is definitely a must read
- The Four Agreements by Miguel Ruiz Spiritual Toltec
- The Sacrifice (Abram’s Daughters #3) by Beverly Lewis. Y’all already know how I feel about this series. I will be picking up the next book in the series.
Don’t forget to check out my Goodreads to see what I am currently reading and to also see what I rate the books I read.
