January—New Year, New Series!

Happy New Year!

I have a giant to-read hoard, and at times I just get overwhelmed and can’t decide on my next read.  So, for 2020, I’ll be sharing a monthly theme and my choices from my personal library.  I’m hoping to inspire you to try out  a new author or genre, and feel free to read along with me (or share what titles you would choose for each theme!).

For January, I thought starting a new series for the new year seemed appropriate.  It was a tough choice, but I decided on the following:

The Way of Shadows was one I was planning on reading in 2019 but it just got away from me.  Now is the perfect time, especially since I love digging into a good epic fantasy during the winter months.  The Yard sounds like a juicy mystery/thriller set in London during the late 1800’s and one I can’t wait to dig into.

I belong to a few groups on Goodreads, and my favorite is the Reading List Completists.  The goal is to read through various best-of lists, mainly classics, with the members voting on the monthly and “big read” selections.  To start out the year, the group decided on:

Goodreads Group Reads

The Turn of the Screw is the January choice, while An American Tragedy will carry us through March.

Thanks for joining me on this monthly adventure, and feel free to comment or share your January reading selections!

Until next time, Happy Reading!
