I saw Jenn post this on Thrice Read and it sounded like fun! So here we go!
An author you’d like to read (that you’ve never read before).
Kayla: George R.R. Martin. I’ve got a few friends who are in love with his books. I’m a little skeptical but I’d like to try at least one.
Neko: Tamora Pierce. Kayla may not speak to me again if I don’t.
A book you’d like to read.
Kayla: Almost Famous Women by Megan Mayhew Bergman. It just sounds so interesting! I bought it recently so hopefully I’ll read it soon.
Neko: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I just saw it again in Barnes and Nobles. I have to read this book, it is haunting me!
A classic you’d like to read.
Kayla: The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemmingway. I actually know nothing about this book except that it was one of my Abuelo’s favorites. I see the word Cuban when I went to link this so perhaps that’s why, being 100% Cuban himself.
Neko: War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. I got over halfway through it as a young teen, but school, music, and a social life got in my way. So once more with feeling!
A book you’d like to re-read.
Kayla: I’d like to re-read the Harry Potter series. I haven’t read it in nearly a decade and I’m curious to see what I take out of it now.
Neko: Lady of the Forest by Jennifer Roberson. Yup broken record here, but it’s been years since I last got my copy out. Time to give it a good dusting.
A book you’ve had for ages and want to read.
Kayla: Good to Great by Jim Collins. I’m pretty sure I’ve already mentioned this book before but I brought it to work to hopefully get myself to read it. I’ve had it for a few years now after too many successful people mentioned it as life changing. I’ll probably make it a Feb TBR book.
Neko: Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. The whole series really. I’ve had them for ages on my kindle, no clue why I haven’t gotten round to them yet…
A big book you’d like to read.
Kayla: Cheating! I’m using the Harry Potter Series again for this one.
Neko: The Bible. Never read the whole thing actually… Or War and Peace, but I already mentioned this one ^_^
An author you’ve previously read and want to read more of.
Kayla: I’ve got a few for this one so I’m not really sure… I guess I could go with Kathy Reichs, I’m curious to see how her books progress.
Neko: Richard L. Mabry M.D.. He wrote the Prescription for Trouble series, a review of the first book is coming. I loved Code Blue and really want to read his other works.
A book you got for Christmas and would like to read.
Kayla: I actually didn’t get any books for Christmas but I did buy myself a huge box of books from Book Outlet on boxing day (that sale was evil!) and have a ton of books from that I want to read. She Is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick keeps catching my eye so I guess I’ll go with that.
Neko: I don’t get books for Christmas because I sit and read and ignore the family until I am finished with it, which usually happens in a day or two… Bad kitty…
A series you want to read (start and finish)
Kayla: Since I already own the books I’ll go with the Pure Series by Julianna Baggott. It sounds like it could be interesting but I’m a little so-so on it.
Neko: Hitchhiker’s Guide. I see it every time I turn on my Kindle…
A series you want to finish (that you’ve already started)
Kayla: Alpha Girl by Aileen Erin, I’ve only read the first book but I really enjoyed it.
Neko: Prescription for Trouble by Dr. Mabry. I need to find more medical fiction.
Do you set reading goals? If so, how many books do you want to read in 2017?
Kayla: I do! I have a few as listed in the January TBR post. My Goodreads goal is 60 books. I’m 6 in so far so I think I’ll do okay 🙂
Neko: CopyCat Neko has the same Goodreads goal of 60 books. I am also 6 books in, lol.
Kayla: I’m going to tag Becky from Book to the Becky, Lia from Lost in a Story & Royal Book Review for this. Can I also “tag” anyone who is interested? If you fill it out please post a link in the comments so I can check it out 🙂
