UPDATE: January TBR Pile

So now Chami has left for a two/three week holiday, I have been left to run this blog all on my own (I admit, I’m a little bit worried). Chami has actually scheduled six posts between the 9th and the 21st, I will be posting on the days in between those posts but you should definitely check her posts out because trust me when I say that she put a lot of work into them.

Anyway, today I decided to post a January TBR pile sort of thing. I am hoping to do one of these each month this year, though I’m not sure whether this will actually end up happening. I thought I’d give this month a go anyway. First of all, my reading goal for this year is 60 books due to the fact it is my last year of school and I don’t want to set my goal too high. Last year I read 105 books with an original target of 50, so we’ll see how this year goes. Alright, let’s move onwards!

I know that probably seems like a crazy amount of books, but quite a few of them are quick and easy reads that I can hopefully knock over quite quickly. I’ll post some reviews of these books through the rest of the month, I’ll also post a wrap-up thing letting you know how I went with the other books when I post my February TBR. Remember to check back tomorrow for a post from Chami about book trailers...so excited! (She wouldn’t let me read it)
