On the eleventh day of Christmas it was hot. Hotter than the day before. So, as I planned, I didn’t go anywhere and spent the afternoon and evening in the air conditioned comfort of my home.
I spent most of the day reading. Like so many of my other friends, I have lost my reading mojo in the past few years. Probably due to study. I normally read non-fiction, biographies, travel stories etc and only have a handful of fictional authors I really like. I think Freya North, an English chick lit author is the only author who I have read all of their work and own them all.
Anyway, so my goal in 2014 is to read more and read more fiction. So I have started with Burial Rites by Hannah Kent. I read good reviews of this online last year from friends so I requested it for Christmas. So far it hasn’t disappointed me.
I still have not read all of the Harry Potter books so they will go on my list to read this year.
I also want to read Jasper Fforde’s books. I bought the first one years ago and never read it. Mr A read it and loved it and so we have all of his work now.
Tonight I read on Facebook a link to BuzzFeed’s 13 Best Australian Books Of 2013 so I think I will read some more of those. What other books do you suggest I add to my list of books to read in 2014? I am aiming to read at least 20 books.
