I have felt like a bit of a literary deadbeat the past two weeks! But the truth is -- I have been reading like a maniac, just ... not the same book. I seem to be having "Book ADD" right now. Each time I turn around, a new and fabulous looking book has arrived into work, or goes on sale at Chapters Indigo, or I have won it somewhere. I can't keep track and I want to read them all! My goal to stop buying new books and read all the old ones I have hoarded, has slowly slipped out of reach. I pick up a book, read the first 50 pages and then grab another and do the same. I have read the beginning of far too many novels in the past two weeks and have finally settled down to two. Except for the two orders I placed recently that will most likely both arrive next week. Oh ...no. New goal: finish these two books and happily read the new ones that come in then! Problem: THE CATASTROPHIC HISTORY OF YOU AND ME just came out... and DELIRIUM is now in paperback... and Anne Rice just wrote a new book...
Anyone feeling this kind of dilemma? Ok -- it is written out and now I will stick to it! Here is the potential reading list for the next month and a bit:
FEBRUARY:Finish recommendation from friend Alexis at Gin & Rhetoric, THE STRAIN (love me some horror lately!) and THE GILLY SALT SISTERS which is turning out to be completely different than I originally expected.
MARCH:Read THE HUNGER GAMES before the movie comes out because I think I truly am the last person to read this book. Next, THE SMALL HAND for Alexis' Book Club on the Gin & Rhetoric Facebook page! I have never participated in a Book Club read and actually very excited! Then will probably read SOULLESS and CHANGELESS, which I have been gushing over since I came across the series on Goodreads. It comes highly recommended from friends and bloggers, so here we go! Then I will most likely start my adventure into the world of the BEAUTIFUL CREATURES -- another series I missed the bandwagon with! Or I might buy DELIRIUM or THE CATASTROPHIC HISTORY OF YOU AND ME. Because I just can't help myself..
What are your reading plans?!
