For 2015 I decided in addition to my To Read List, that perhaps I need to set a goal of which ones I intend to check off so that things actually get checked off it instead of overwhelmingly adding to it.
Since I have a couple trilogies and series started, I think I should start there.
Abandon Trilogy by Meg Cabot
Heather Wells Mysteries by Meg Cabot
The Bride Wore Size 12
Jedi Academy by Jeffery Brown
The Padawan Returns
Killer Unicorns by Diana Peterfreund
Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink
Guardian at the Gate
Circle of Fire
The Testing Trilogy by Joelle Charbonelle
The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson
Now, I’m not saying I’ll read all of those first before I dive into anything else, but I at least want to finish them this year. I will probably start with the ones that only have one book left, since it will be faster and easier.
I also plan to tackle the books on YALSA’s lists again. I haven’t decided if I’ll do the challenge, but in the interest of professional development, I need to attempt to read as many of these books as possible each year to keep current with award winners and trends. I’ll have to wait and see what makes all the lists to see if I can find enough books on the list that appeal to me before I make any commitments. I almost finished last year, but I don’t quite have as much free time to read as I did then. Two of the series above were started in last year’s Hub Challenge, so maybe there will be some more interesting starts.
