I am going to try to get back to reviewing titles on a more regular basis, although I think that I will spend 2013 challenge-free. I will read debuts, I will read sophomore novels, I will read standalones and (hopefully) I will read books on my to-read pile, and I will document them as such--I'm just not going to challenge myself to do so, because I hate failing. Case in point:
- As of this post I have read 31 debut titles for 2012, which is most impressive, no? But the only thing I see is that there are four titles on that list that I did not get to this year.
- Same thing with my To-Be-Read challenge: I read 15 books that had been sitting around gathering dust, but all I can see is that I STILL have not read Rot & Ruin (I'm sorry, Jonathan Maberry! I know it's amazing, I just can't bring myself to read it!).
- Sophomore Reading Challenge: I read 14 and 1/2 (just could not finish Insurgent), but all I see are the two I have yet to get to.
- Standalone: this was the easiest challenge for me, because I just added anything I read that was a standalone book LOL 73 of the books I read this year fell into this category, and there was only 1 that I put on the list (Touched, by Cyn Balog) that I didn't get to.
So I am kissing 2012 goodbye, and am trying to be optimistic (which is not my nature) that 2013 is going to be my year. My lucky number is 13, after all!
Enjoy your reading and best wishes for 2013!
