You may have already planned out all the books you’re going to read this year, but if you haven’t, maybe my list can help you form that list. Below are twelve books, one for each month of the year. The idea is that each month we can read the book together and the last week of the month, usually on the last Monday, I will post my thoughts about the book and you can comment on the post so we can talk about it. There will be spoilers, as this is more of a book club than book reviews. But I will be sure to let you know the degree of spoilers if you haven’t finished the book.
Oh, and if you would like me to interview you about the book, we can do that too! You can, also, do a guest post on the book of the month and I can do the commenting. 😉 Let me know if you’re interested in doing either of those and we’ll make a plan.

I hope you will join me in the reading and writing adventures this year. I know, not all these books may capture your interest. That’s okay. Pick a book you want to read in place of the one(s) you don’t care about and tell me about it when you’re done reading. These are not all the books I’ll be reading this year. I’ve already read Spaceman: An Astronaut’s Unlikely Journey to Unlock the Secrets of the Universe by Mike Massimino, The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton, an of course Wayfarer by K. M. Weiland. My husband says I can’t count my own books, but I, also, read Smells of Exile. And all of these are just my January books! If you want to check out my full to be read pile of books, head over to Goodreads. Feel free to make recommendations. Happy Reading!
