Okay, sports fans, it’s been a while. Let’s get things rolling again, why don’t we? With this return comes a new project.
Yup, I’m going to read and review a new book every week. I’m a creature that craves habit and honestly, reads slow. I’m lucky if I can finish a romance novel in two weeks, and you know those aren’t generally long reads. The first few weeks might be a bit cheating, I’ll admit it. I have a couple of books that need to get finished before I start. The only one that I’ll actually count is Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews. Come on, I’m on page 46 out of 462. I think that’s forgivable? Okay, maybe it’s a warm up. We have to start somewhere.
Are they all going to be romance novels? Maybe? I can’t promise they won’t, but I do read Urban Fantasy, Science Fiction, Young Adult, and other such things. Sad to say (well not that sad), but I have a back log of romance novels waiting. Seriously though, some will be great. Unicorn Vengeance. Doesn’t that sound awesome?
Have you read these books before? No, that would be cheating! I’m also not using books that I’ve already gotten a healthy amount into. Right now, I have Sabriel by Garth Nix, Highlander Unmasked by Monica McCarty laying around my room more than half done and then Gena Showalter’s The Darkest Kiss more than 90% done in my iTouch, so there’s other books that will get finished and might get reviewed, but they won’t count to my goal.
This goal isn’t very ambitious. Why not a-book-a-day? I’m hoping to have a job sooner than later and as nice as it would be even posting a book review every day won’t bring me in the cash I need to do my Big Move come this summer.
Is there any reason you might pause? Well, there is the Big Move I’ll be making this summer. That might throw things off just a bit. Also, if anything by Kresley Cole gets released, well, sorry whatever-book-I’m-reading, but Kresley Cole takes priority. Oh, right. and finals. That makes things screwy sometimes.
How long will you be doing this? How long you got? Seriously, I’m going to aim for a year and ideally continue on and keep in good practice of getting through a book every week. I think that’s respectable!
Who are you talking to? Why, you of course. I’ll just keep talking to no one and eventually it’ll be someone! Yes, I am very optimistic when I want to be. Just ask Literary Napkin.
Can I suggest a book? I can’t promise I’ll get to it soon, but I’m willing to hear suggestions. Like I said, though, there is a backlog that just keeps getting bigger. Shh, don’t tell, but I picked up a cowboy romance novel just today with a missing child and a detective agency. I’m a sucker for these things.
And now that this place has a more clear purpose, maybe I’ll also remember to blog about other things as well, huh? Any more questions, ask away! Happy reading!
