January TBR

This is a little later than my usual TBRs go up; I’m currently writing this between chapters of The Old Curiosity Shop which I’m reading in order to procrastinate writing several lab reports. The Christmas holidays were not as cheery as I had anticipated; I may do a personal blog post at some point this month to just cover it all! But suffice to say, my tardiness has reason.

So, my TBR for January. As I write this I’m nearly finished with my first book of the year Americanah by Chimananda Ngozi Adichie and I’m making headway in to The Old Curiosity Shop but there are a few more books I want to get through between lab reports and being back at uni this month.

This month there isn’t a photo; primarily because the books I want to read I don’t actually have in my possession at present. One is in Waterstones waiting for me to collect it, another is on my sisters bookshelf. So, my January TBR:

Americanah1984 madamebovary OldCuriosityShop TheBoneClocks hitchhikersguide

I have to say, it’s pretty ambitious given my commitments this month! But it consists of Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, 1984 by George Orwell, Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert,The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens, The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell and finally, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.

It’s worth noting that I am also partaking in the Goodreads 2015 Reading Challenge which is a list of 52 topics, one for each week of the year. I’m probably not going to stick to it perfectly but it’s a really good guide for me and is going to vary my reading a bit more! It also means I’m more inclined to think what I have on my shelf is sufficient and I’ll be less inclined to buy too many more books! So all but Americanah are based around that challenge. I think I must be a glutton for punishment as these books add up to a total just shy of 3000 pages. I’m going to remain optimistic however.
