In the spirit of BEGINNINGS (novels, revisions, years), I'm vowing to read more grownup stuff in 2014. I'm embarrassed to say, when friends bring up great new books (and even newish ones), I mostly haven't read them. Yes, I've heard of them, but I read so many middle-grade and even a few Young Adult novels, that my adult reading has gone by the wayside.
So, here's what's up on my Kindle.
Donna Tartt's new book, The Goldfinch.
(I don't read everything via an ebook, but this one's so huge, I couldn't see toting it around, hardcover.)
I'm also going to read Sue Monk Kidd's new book, The Invention of Wings because I received an ARC from NetGalley. And because I loved Secret Life of Bees AND she's coming to Tampa soon! Inkwood Books is sponsoring her talk.
This morning, I found --totally haphazardly-- a new blog to peruse.
And as so many blog writers are doing, he lists the books read in 2013.
(I had a good plan to keep a list of mine, which failed miserably.)
I love the guest post on working with an editor.
And Flannery O'Connor.
His "Bookstore of the Month" posts are fun, too. Long, but fun.
If I'd just stop reading blogs, avoid Facebook, etc., maybe I'd find more time to read.
There's a resolution to consider for 2014...
