2015 Goals

I am not good about joining challenges, but I wanted to set some targets for myself.  Here are some reading plans I have for 2015:

 *I want to read more than last year because I feel I am in a better reading space than last year.  I am not going to hold myself to this though, because slumps can creep up without warning.

*For the next few there can be overlap but I want to read more middle grade books this year than I did last year.  I seemed to really stick to YA books this past year and I don't want to just do that.  I remember loving some middle grade books and I want to get back to that. 

*I have a list of books by authors I either didn't read when I was younger or haven't read now.  I plan to get on that this year.

*For example, I would like to re-read some Harry Potter, but never feel like I have time.  This year I am going to give myself permission to re-read some of those books I remember loving.

*I have to read more from my shelves.  Every summer I bring home stacks of books from the library and don't even get most of them read because I get so wrapped up in ARCs.  This year, I am going to read more from my shelves.

So there it is, my reading goals for 2015.  Have you set any or joined any challenges?

  2. Love your blog it's my first time here! I did plenty of YA reading last year but I am so over the ( have to read three or more books to tell one story ) thing that I find so often. Do you know any good YA stories that are told in ONE BOOK. Let me know. My true love is classics. Jane Eyre being my all time favorite.
    Thanks for the milk and cookies, I'll be back for more!

    1. Hi Carly:

      Thanks for stopping by! I am a huge sucker for contemporary YA romances, most of which are stand along books. Some of my favorites are: Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt; Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols; Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell; Graceling by Kristin Cashore (this is fantasy and part of a series, but the other two books are not about the same people and this one really ties up the story); Eight Keys by Suzanne LaFleur (really MG but SO good!); Keeping the Castle by Particia Kindl (similar to P&P!). These are just a few. Some authors that write good stand alones are : E.Lockhart; Jennifer Echols and Sarah Dessen. Let me know if you want more ideas!
