New Year, New Challenges.
I mean that in a good way, this time.
Actually, this year, I’m determined to only participate in one reading challenge, which is my tenth anniversary edition of the TBR Pile Challenge, hosted right here at the Roof Beam Reader blog! There’s still time to sign-up, by the way, but not much!
I did also jump on the “Recommend Me a Book” meme that was floating around social media. The gist is to ask friends/family to recommend you one book to read in 2023, to collect a total of twelve titles (ideally, one per month.) I made the request back on January 2nd and received a total of thirteen different suggestions.
I’m going to do my best to read all thirteen, but I’m listing them here as the core twelve (in keeping spirit with the original challenge) plus one alternate. Below, listed in no particular order, are the titles my friends and family recommended that I’ll be adding to my TBR for 2023. What do you think!?
Alternate/Bonus: A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard (Recommended by Gretchen A.)
Thanks to my friends who sent in their suggestions! I have only read three of these authors so far (Picano, Wharton, and Mishima), but not the ones recommended, here. I’m looking forward to the whole list, to be honest, perhaps especially Dark Matter, which has been on my radar for a long time, and The Sea of Fertility, as I have a bunch of Mishima on my shelves, but somehow, I missed this particular tetralogy (and it sounds perfect for me!)
What are you reading this week?
See you on Jan. 15th for our first #TBRYear10 check-in!
