Good morning!! What a rotten day we have, rainy and windy.. and I do mean WINDY! Spent the morning running around doing some errands; ordering new glasses, mailing parcels, getting a Tim Horton's Steeped Tea for the missus and a Double Double for moi.. Now back in the warmth and comfort of our home, puppies have been fed their lunch and it's time to settle back with my next Blog.
It's that time of year when members of one of my goodreads book groups, The Book Addicts start identifying what they hope to accomplish reading-wise in the upcoming year. We have two types of challenges; the Reading Group Challenge, which is a 12 + 2 or 4, list of books that you plan to read in 2015. The other is your Individual Reading Challenge, which is wide open; basically your hopes for reading in the next year and however you might like to challenge yourself. Today, I'm going to lay out my 12 + 4 list (I like having the 4 alternates since it was introduced last year, I don't really use them as alternates, just make it more of a 16 book list I plan to try and read).
This year I decided to focus my Reading Group challenge on new series. Over the past few years, I've purchased many new series; for a variety of reasons, some from TV series that I've enjoyed, some from recommendations from other group members and some just from liking the plot line at my local book stores. I've mentioned many times that I like to mooch around book stores, to see what's new and what looks interesting. :0)
Anyway, this year, I've pulled down 16 books that are the first in a particular series (I guess they all fall into the mystery/ thriller/ adventure genre) and that have been sitting on my shelves for awhile and I will read them in 2015. These are the 16 books/ series I've chosen.
So there you have it, my 12 + 4 2015 Reading challenge. I hope maybe some of these books might give you ideas of trying them out. Next Blog will feature my Individual Challenge ideas.
Take care, stay dry and Keep on reading!
