Since January 1 lands on a Tuesday this year, I have a special TBR Tuesday post this month!
Kristilyn from Reading in Winter and Anne from Creativity’s Corner have put together a fun reading challenge for 2013 – and it involves a bingo sheet! For some reason I’ve always enjoyed playing bingo (probably because I’m a sucker for crossing things off of lists), so this challenge caught my eye right away.
To see all of the rules, and ways to win, check out Kristilyn’s post. To be concise, I’ll just post the bingo scorecard here.
And since I love crossing things off lists and marking off squares on bingo cards, you can be sure that I will be doing so throughout the year with this scorecard! To begin with, I think I’ll go for an “easy” BINGO and try to complete the top row across. My plan for these books is as follows:
Call it cheating, but I chose The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake because it is my book club choice for January. It’s been in my TBR pile for a while, after a couple of friends gave it great reviews. Also, you may notice that The Dark and Hollow Places has made a return from last month. Sometimes my reading agenda just doesn’t turn out the way I planned! But this one can serve as my “book from a series”, because I really need to finish this series already!
It’s sad that my sister has had an ARC of Splintered for months now and neither of us has gotten to it yet. I make it my goal to finally read it this month! I chose Shiver to my book that everyone has read but me, because, well, it seems like everyone has read it but me. I’ve been meaning to read it for a while, so here’s my chance!
And my re-read? Have you read We Have Always Lived in the Castle? I picked it up at the bookstore years ago, and my decision was based solely on the title and the cover. I don’t even remember if I read the description; I just knew I wanted it. It turned out to be one of my favorite books of all time, so I’m excited to read it again. (Also, it’s on the shorter side, so a re-read won’t take up TOO much of my time!)
So, I think my 2013 reading goals are off to a good start. Let’s see if I can BINGO in January!
