Here’s my first attempt at my new monthly plan template. 😂 It will definitely be evolving as the months go by, but this works for now.
January Jam Jar + LateAThon:
I’m combining the Devour Your TBR challenge for this month (put all your TBR books in a “jam jar”) with the LateAThon hosted by Destiny. The following are books that I started but didn’t finish in 2018:
- A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard
- The Next Together by Lauren James
- Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit by Jaye Robin Brown
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (actually started this in 2016 or 2017 but I really want to read it!)
- To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
- Dreadnought by April Daniels
- The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo (reread)
- Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers
- A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole
- Villains Don’t Date Heroes by Mia Archer
- Backstagers vol. 1 by James Tynion IV, Rian Sygh, and Walter Baiamonte
I’ll also be adding these 5 titles to my January “Jar”. These were my picks from my larger TBR Jar.
- Ebola by William T. Close
- Fungi from Yuggoth and Other Poems by H. P. Lovecraft, illustrated by Frank Utpatel
- Barbary Station by R. E. Stearns
- Eclectic Wicca: A guide for the modern witch by Mandi See
- The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin
All of these titles are assigned a number on a spreadsheet. I’ll roll a d20 every time I want to “pick” a title. ^_^
Things I’m looking forward to:
The ALA midwinter Conference is in Seattle this year, which means I get to go! I’ll get to see a best friend from high school, a best friend I met earlier this year through blogging, and a bunch of new folks! As a book blogger and a librarian I’m overwhelmed with the amount of opportunities that will be available to me in this one weekend and I can’t wait to give them all a go.
So there’s my plans for January! Is anyone else going to ALA? Maybe we could meet up!
