2014 TBR List

I had a couple of first-time visitors to my house a few weeks ago and they cannot control themselves from commenting on the amount of books I have.

I guess just calling me a bookworm doesn’t suffice anymore. Maybe I’m along the lines of a book-anaconda. Lol!

Anyway, it brought me to a realization that I haven’t done my 2014 TBR list yet! Although I apparently missed the solar new year, it’s just the beginning of the lunar calendar so I’m still not that late.

The first thing I did after they left was to revisit my 2013 TBR list to check out the books I’ve read and those that I skipped in lieu of other titles that came along. To my utter relief,  I found that I almost completed last year’s list. Of course, there were a few books that I haven’t had a copy yet; those I would have to include in this year’s list. 

After browsing through international book-lists from across the globe and , of course, consulting my go-to webbies (Fantastic Fiction UK and Heroes & Heartbreakers), 2014 is proving to be a year I’m looking forward to reading A LOT. I mean, averaging 3-4 books a month last year was very slow even for me, even if there are legitimate reasons for me to put off reading for awhile.

THE CHALLENGE: I will push myself to finish at least 6 books in a month, which won’t be too hard unless there are other urgent stuff that comes up [*crossing my fingers].
