It’s the second month of the year! I have some ambitious plans for this month, mostly because I’ll have a week away from home where I’m planning on relaxing and reading.
Some of these may seem to come out of nowhere, and that’s mostly because I have a certain type of book that I like reading while on vacation, which is typically more lightweight books and contemporaries. So here are my plans for the full month, and we’ll see how many I can get to:
Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Satan Loves You by Grady Hendrix
Reading over this list again, I think my definition of lightweight might differ slightly from the normal definition. Really what I mean by that is books that I think I’m really likely to enjoy, but it’s also typically the only time that I branch into contemporaries. Last year on vacation was the first time that I read a Maria Semple book, and I’ve been looking for an opportunity to try and read more by her.
I’m hoping to read between seven and nine books this month, but even if I just get through about half of this list I’ll be happy.
