So far, so good. Only lately (use this term lightly please), I've been reading a lot of my new books. I love to read on my Kindle, so there are no books on my shelves that actually get read. I also read books that I got in semi-recently. The result is that I have a lot of books that I was once ridiculously excited for, but are now still unread on my shelves. And it's getting out of hand. So I figured I'd give myself a little social pressure by telling you guys that I'm going to make a dent in that they-always-stay-on-my-shelves-waiting-to-be-read-pile.
This is the cube of books that holds the books that I was so excited for months ago and are still unread (classics are exception, I only acquired those recently). I even gave them a special cube in my book closet so I could clearly see them when I looked at my books. No luck, I still haven't picked them up. I need peer pressure!
The ten books below (and in the picture) are books that I want to finish before 2012 starts. That gives me 4 months, which may be even a little long to accomplish a goal like this, but I already tried to let them get my attention and failed months ago. SO. I have until December 31st, 2011 to finish the following books:
- Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
- Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves
- Fallen by Lauren Kate
- Lament by Maggie Stiefvater
- My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent
- Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
- Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
- The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong
- Voices of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn
- Wings by Aprilynne Pike
I can do this. It's doable. I can do this. I can.. Hey, what's that pretty cover over there?! *snaps out of it* See why I need you guys to be able to do this? I'll try to do a little thingie in my wrap up posts from now on to show if I actually made progress in this Personal Reading Goal. Wish me luck!
Do you have any books that you were dying to read and yet.. they are still unread now you've had the book for days/weeks/months/years?
