New year, new books, new challenges. It's mid of January, high time to pick some great reads. If you still have no reading plans for the first month of the new year, here are some book recommendations from BookLikes Blogs.
Bitter Spirits (Roaring Twenties) - Jenn Bennett - Roaring twenties? Raw lust? Black magic? Sold! The moment I read this blurb and saw positive ratings from book bloggers that I trust, I knew I needed to read this.
The Emperor's Blades (Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne) - Brian Staveley - I've recently started reading and enjoying high fantasy, and have been looking for more books to read in this genre.
A Mad, Wicked Folly - Sharon Biggs Waller - The fact that the story is set in the 1900s in London is enough to tempt me.
It is again a new year, and I can tell you all, it will be filled with books. I will however try and take it easier this year. 700+ books is fun, but also a bit stressful at times. Now for January, a bit busy in regards with books. First of all, my pre-orders (I got quite a few and I will only list those I haven't read yet, some pre-orders are books I already read, but I was waiting for to come out in paperback).
The Martian: A Novel - Andy Weir - This one is about an astronaut who is one of the first to walk on Mars and finds himself stranded there.
Longbourn - Jo Baker - I am usually wary of books about Jane Austen's characters but this looked interesting so I decided to take a chance on it.
The Hobbit - J. R. R. Tolkien - I am ashamed that I have yet to read this and Lord of the Rings so I have decided to read them during 2014.
Happy New Year! My 2014 Mt. TBR goal is 36 books - qualifying books include The Stockholm Octavo, Command Authority, The Great Gatsby and Agnes Grey. A whole wonderful year of books awaits, beginning with: The Great Gatsby - DWS book of the month; The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian - Narnia group reread...
If you already figured out what to read in January, make plans for next months.
If your TBR pile will get suspiciously small and you'll be still craving for new stunning reads, you can always visit Debbie's Spurts blog where you can find new releases roundups and fill up your Planning to read shelf :-)
What are you reading this month?
