New Year’s Resolution of 2018

I made it!

Scarlet Reader

If you’re new to The Scarlet Reader or haven’t caught up lately you’re probably wondering what I’m talking about. Well, at the beginning of 2018 I made a bookish New Year’s Resolution. All my regular resolutions I make always get broken and pretty early in the year too. That may be because I always make it out to be: I’m not going to be a klutz this year. Which, of course, a week, two weeks later, I trip up the stairs or run into the doorway. So, New Year’s Resolution book style seemed more fun and challenging.

Side Note: I ran into something this week, don’t know when, and now there’s an ugly yellow bruise on my hand. Awesome.

Moving on!

My resolution this year was to read from 25 authors I’ve never read from before. I wanted to do this to open up my spectrum of interests in reading and get introduced to many different styles and stories I’d never thought of or heard of. I also wanted to get to some authors I’ve been meaning to for years.

Below, I have the list of books from my resolution from worst to best. Sooooo…here you go!

Soon enough, I’ll have a new New Year’s Resolution, but until then,

See you on the next page, in the next chapter, at the end of the book,

Whichever one you choose.

Love you, bookworms.

 

More to come soon…
