12 Months – 12 Books

UPDATE: Just noticed I forgot October so I’m fixing that now….oooops.

This year I’m challenging myself to read a book a month. Preferably books that aren’t for my toddler. I’ve let me TBR pile get WAY out of hand over the last two years. It’s finally time to put a dent in the pile. So here are the books I’m looking to read this year.

Jan. – The Complete Patrick Melrose Novels by Edward St. Austin – I have been warned there is NOTHING happy about these novels. But I figure I’ll actually slip in other books between these books.

Feb. – Compound A Felony by Elinor Grey – Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are super gay for one another. I’ve started this one several times, but time to actually read it and review it.

Mar. – Jayne Steele by Lyndsay Faye – Another I’ve started a few times. But again time to buckle down and read it all.

Apr. – About Being a Sherlockian by a whole lot of Sherlockians – Since I’m heading to Atlanta this month for a Sherlock Holmes convention I figure this is the month to read this one.

May – Not My Fathers Son by Alan Cumming – I’ve heard good things and I’ve also had this book 2 years now. Time to dig in.

Jun. Mycroft Holmes by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – I’ve heard mixed reviews on this one, but I’m willing to give it a shot.

Jul. – This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper – Another that’s been on the pile WAY too long.

Aug. – The Gods of Gotham by Lyndsay Faye – More by Lyndsay Faye yes please.

Sep. – Seven for a Secret by Lyndsay Faye – Hey if you plan to read the first book, you should probably read the rest of the series.

Oct. – The Fatal Flame by Lyndsay Faye – See above.

Nov. – The Whole Art of Deduction by Lyndsay Faye – Listen she’s a great author. So there we are.

Dec. – Hamilton by Ron Chernow – Go big or go home and this is a big one!

You can follow along with my progress on Goodreads if you like. Are you setting any challenges for yourself this year? Let me know in the comments or on Facebook.
