It’s Monday, January 5, 2015. Happy New Year! This also means it is the first ‘It’s Monday, What are you Reading’ of the year. Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, Monday is a great day to take stock of what you’re currently reading.

I like it because it holds me accountable. And, because I succeeded at the 120 books read in 2014 (via Goodreads), I agreed to read 200 in 2015—I’ve done it before, and for many years read at least that many, but life has come in the way. But, beyond that, I want to publish more reviews this year. I have so many that I’ve written that have not been transcribed. This is a huge oversight and does nothing to help my cause. I need entries to make everyone interested! This is a predominantly a review blog and without those reviews, I have nothing to offer. So, provided I read an average of 15-20 books a month, I can do this! And, I would love to hear your thoughts.


So, without further ado, here is what I have been up to:

Last Week:
Night of the Living Trekkies
The Unauthorized Story of Walt Disney’s Haunted Mansion
Shirley I Jest : A Storied Life
Party Games
Down from the Mountain (Review published on January 6th)
Alex as Well (Review published on January 7th)

Currently Reading:
The Fringe Hours (by Jessica Turner). I’m part of this street team, so I am really looking forward to what this can do for me.

The Happiness Project (by Gretchen Rubin). I need to read this boon in 2015. Probably a monthly thing, but still, totally worth it.

Emma (by Jane Austen). I have never read this book, while loving Clueless, and #novelteabookclub is reading it this month—I am there!

Batman and Son. I almost picked this up in paper form, but remembered I had it electronically, so yeah. I’m reading this, w00t!

  1. I enjoyed The Happiness Project, although really its more than a read as you think about whether you want to take on her suggestions. I enjoy her blog.

  2. I love Jane Austen – so hope you enjoy Emma!

    PS. Your link on Sheila’s page didn’t work for me… (just a heads up).

  3. I love what you’ve done with your blog. I encourage you to read and review more books on your blog 🙂 That\’s great! Do you like reading graphic novels? I bought Guardians of the Galaxy for Christmas . It was the most expensive book/comic I’ve ever bought! lol

  4. I hope to publish more reviews this year on my blog. I tend to wait and clump a whole bunch of reviews at the same time. Happy New Year!
