January Reading & Rereading
Ring in the new! I do enjoy reading posts in which bloggers show off their proposed reading for the month but have never been able to do this myself as most of my reading is dependent on what I find on my weekly library visits. However, I find 2013 begins with a small pile of books, a mixture of my own and from the library, ready to go.
Clayhanger by Arnold Bennett is my Classics Club choice for January and I would like to make a start on Middlemarch by George Eliot which will be a long term read throughout the year.
I'll be joining heavenali in her month of rereading - something else I don't do much of but I have a tendency to see titles I read long ago at Book Fairs and such and can't resist buying them so time I actually read some of them. My month won't be all rereads but I'll start with these three...
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Any of the above will be perfect for The Classics Club readathon this weekend.
Then I have selections for various challenges....
The Yellow Birds by Kevin Powers ( Literature & War January readalong)
Hag's Nook by John Dickson Carr ( Vintage Mystery Challenge)
The Lady and the Unicorn by Tracy Chevalier ( 2013 TBR Pile Challenge)
Recipe For Love by Katie Fforde ( What's In A Name 6)
And for no reason at all...
Rook by Jane Rusbridge
I've never been this organised. I don't know that I want to be this organised or whether it will work but I do know that I want to read all of these books so no harm in giving it try. I'm very tired after two lovely but exhausting weeks of family celebrations so will be relaxing and starting the year with light and easy reads.
