New Year, New Books

new year new books logo

It’s a new year and that means it is time for all of the new books! *Cue trumpets and confetti canons* It’s also time for new reading challenges. Whether you are wanting to challenge yourself to read more books through setting your own Goodreads reading goal or you want to try to expand your reading horizons with the Popsugar reading challenge.  There is a reading challenge out there for you. I personally do a variation on the Goodreads challenge where I just try to read as many books as possible, without setting any kind of specific goal, which is much harder than it sounds. I have a considerable TBR pile but a definite lack of time to get through it all (thank goodness for our lending times so I have more time to get through them). Unfortunately, librarians actually don’t get to just read all day. I mean, I wish though, that sounds like the best job ever.

So what are your reading goals? Are you going to participate in a reading challenge? Goodreads, Popsugar, or some reading challenge that you put together yourself? Let me know, I want to hear about it! Also, enjoy this list of some of the most exciting fantasy books that are coming out this year. I can already see my TBR pile growing.
