My goal this year is to ready 40 books (I’m on goodreads, hi! you can search for me as sharah, with my blog email). That’s the same as last year, but last year I fell into A03 around July and my actual “book” reading got fucked. I haven’t finished anything yet this year, but since the beginning of the year, I have started:
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (audiobook)
- Heartland by Sarah Smarsh (audiobook)
- Vampires by John Steakley
- L.A. Son by Roy Choi
- We Were Eight Years in Power by Ta-Nehisi Coates
- Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat by Samin Nosrat
Also, I have Cork Dork by Bianca Bosker that I started back around Thanksgiving but still haven’t finished.
My daughter also brought home Narwhal (Peanut Butter) and Jelly for me from the library, so I HAVE to read that.
One of my goals this year is to read more about Southern food and culture. It seems strange, since I’ve lived here all my life, but sometimes it takes someone from the outside to point out things you have never actively noticed. I also want to read through my physical TBR pile; mostly things I’ve bought from the library bookstore for 50¢ after I recognized them from Book Riot or the Bitter Southerner reviews. To support that, I’ve committed (to myself at least) to write at least 10 reviews of the books I read. So keep an eye out — hopefully, I’ll finish one of these at some point in the near future and start that series!
