Saffron's Reading List - Second Attempt
« on: March 05, 2011, 05:33:01 PM »
Last year I decided I wanted to read 50 books in one year. I did not succeed, reading less than 10 of the 50 books I had put on my list. I went through a lot of crap last year though, and I've decided to make a second attempt this year, as my desire to read for my own leisure has been growing as of late. I've purchased a few books and borrowed a number from the library in the past week. To complete this list, or even just to read 50 books in a year for myself would be an amazing accomplishment. Something I used to accomplish in a few months, which now seems so difficult because of lack of 'me' time. The introduction of the internet in larger proportions has been a huge factor in that, but I want to get back to reading, and this is my next attempt.
Organized alphabetically by author, I took out the majority of the 're-reads' from my last list as I want to expand my horizons instead of staying in my comfort zone.

I will keep the second post updated with the books I am currently reading and I will attempt to post reviews up every time I finish one.

May I recommend one? Shadow Bound by: Erin Kellison.

I'm half way through it, and it is a great book filled with detail and a pretty well original story.
