One of my reading resolutions for 2013 is dedicated to blogging about my monthly TBR lists and Wrap-Up reviews. All this, of course, in the attempt to become a wee bit more systemized than last year. I always fancy myself as becoming this ultra-organized person whose entire life consists of lists and structured routines. Sadly though, I fail big time at being an orderly person; I have never followed any TBR monthly lists in my entire reading life. Still, the New Year is always a license to change, so here’s hoping this attempt will become a fruitful, if not sustained, pursuit.
I’ve been struggling between wanting to have a theme for January and just picking up random five books. In the end, diversity won over uniformity. I think I’m going to try themes in February instead, and I’m sure you can already predict the cliché choice. Yeah, we give in to mainstream urges sometimes.
After a couple of revisions and change-of-heart episodes in the past few days, I finally completed the line-up for the first month of this year. It’s a deliciously assorted mix of a beloved children’s classic, an acclaimed High Fantasy Epic, a contemporary chick-lit novel, a gorgeously-designed paranormal YA book, and a little poetry collection from one of the most romantic poets who ever graced the history of literature. Ah, this could only be good, you guys; I can already taste it!
