O.M.G.: What are you waiting for? Go out and buy this book now! Superb: It's wonderful, but you can wait for a coupon. Give it a try: It's good, but I would wait for paperback. Meh: It will be in the library eventually. Naahhhhhhhhh!!!: Do I really need to explain?
Sometimes I wish I could read faster. Like a lot of book lovers, I am easily distracted by a shiny new cover. Wait until BookExpo America next month. BEA is at the Javits Center, which is the size of a football field. A football field filled with books of every genre. It will be like being a kid in a candy store. Can't wait!!
So how has my reading progress been? According to GoodReads, I've read 15 books towards my goal of 75. At this pace, I will probably only read 60 books. But it's always good to have goals. Seventy-five books is a lofty goal. I did this because I want to outdo myself. I locked myself into two reading challenges. With the outdo yourself challenge, I'm going for the I'm on fire level. Translation, I have to read 16 plus more books than last year. I read 49 books last year, and I know I can read more than that. I also signed up for the 2011 YA Reading challenge. I'm aiming to read 20 YA novels.
So far, I've read 6 YA books and 9 adult books. I'm certain I can hit 20 YA books. But my overall reading goal will take some time. What about everyone else? What are some of your reading goals?
I love, love to read. I accept literary fiction, chick lit, memoirs, mysteries, historical fiction and contemporary YA books for review. If you think your book is for me, I will make an exception for other genres. At this time, I am accepting a limited amount of e-books. If I can't get into your book after 60-70 pages, I will not review it. Books are read in the order they are received. Reviews will be posted within 6-8 weeks upon receiving the book. Reviews of books not yet published will be posted closer to the publication date. You can contact me at email@example.com
Opportunities for guest posts, interviews and giveaways can also be arranged.
