Now that March (Reading Ireland Month) is over, it is time for me to attempt to gain control of my reading and buckle down – in the hopes of gaining a small semblance of authority over my TBR.
Knowing from experience that I seldom read more than ten books per month, I thought I’d list the TEN titles I plan to read in April. If I can read more than ten, I’ll be overjoyed.
In anticipation of the Williams & Whiting blog tour for Alison Baillie’s new novel I will be reading “A fractured winter“
Because I have been waiting with baited breath to read Clare Mackintosh’s lates novel, I will be reading “Let me lie“
Because I loved her previous novel “Black Rabbit Hall”, I will be reading Eve Chase’s latest book “The Wildling Sisters“
And I’ve read SO many glowing reviews recently for Simone St. James’ latest novel, I will be reading “The broken girls“.
I’ve enjoyed several titles by Lisa Jewell, so I want to read “Then she was gone“, her latest novel.
In addition, I will be reading the two NetGalley titles that have been on my NetGalley shelf the longest:
Lesley Thomson’s “The detective’s daughter“
and the Louise Voss/Mark Edwards title “From the cradle”
and the title that has been on my Edelweiss shelf the longest, Catherine Lowell’s “The madwoman upstairs“.and Farrar, Straus & Giroux sent me a NetGalley widget with an invitation to read/review “Our kind of cruelty” by Araminta Hall
So that’s the ten. I hope to read more, we’ll see how it goes…
Do you think making a reading ‘plan‘ is useful to you? This is the first time I’ve made a firm plan and hope that nothing interferes with my sticking to it. But hey… life happens.
Also, I’m trying REALLY hard to NOT request anything from NetGalley or Edelweiss this month. Lately I’ve been receiving more than ten titles every month for review. I realize I’ll never really make an impact on my TBR until I stop
drowning treading water and actually make some headway.
