Let’s Read, 2018

I like to read, but I read far too little in 2017. Woefully. Pitifully little. Embarrassingly little. In 2017 I had a reading challenge that I tried to complete, but it didn’t go well.

Well, this year I’m back with a new and improved list that eschews silly things like page count and instead is designed to get me to read things I might not otherwise read. I tend to fall into genre holes for months (or, hell, years) at a time, so hopefully that won’t be the case in 2018.

See the categories below. As I finish books I’ll plug them into the appropriate slots, and I’ll also add a brief review at the bottom of the list. I’m not going to count books I read for a second (or third, or forth, etc) time because of school.

Have you read anything good recently? Want to make a suggestion for my “something recommended by a friend” or “read something you know nothing about” categories? Let me know in the comments.
