2013 Resolutions

Those books/resolutions that are GREEN are completed (so, GREEN books are completed, but when the whole resolution text is GREEN, the resolution has been completed). Those resolutions that are RED went uncompleted, even if the GREEN books are there (obviously you can read a book for a resolution, making that book GREEN, but if the resolution isn’t completed in whole, the rest of the text is RED). Books in PURPLE are books I intend to read for a resolution, which will turn GREEN once I’ve read them.

Published in 2013 Resolution

Read at least FIVE books published in 2013.

1. The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier (published January 15th; finished February 18th)
2. Shades of Earth by Beth Revis (published January 15th; finished April 6th)

Personal Collection Resolution

Read at least TEN books in my personal collection (bought in 2012 or before). I’m really shooting for every-other books I read to be from my personal collection, but at least this is a bit more realistic/do-able.

1. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (2/13/13)
2. Castle Rackrent by Maria Edgeworth (2/23/13)
3. Dreams of Joy by Lisa See (3/20/13)

Years of Books Resolution

Read at least FIVE books that fulfill a year still unmet in my long term Years of Books Goal. (One of my books published in 2013 will end up on this list to fulfill that year, but I try to make it a book that’s not in a series.)

1. The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier (2013)
2. Castle Rackrent by Maria Edgeworth (1800)

  1. Don’t suppose you’ll be reading the new Dan Brown book, which I believe was published this year? I’d love to read a review of it
