My to-be-read-list: 2010
I am still waiting to be able to pick up the Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire. My daughter has already picked this up from the school library and read it so I need to get caught up with her.
Along with my own "enjoyment" reading, I'm also trying to read books that my daughter is interested in. She's 13 years old and I know as she gets older and becomes more a "teen" the harder it is going to be to find that connection with her. I'm hoping this new tradition we have of sharing books will be a lasting tradition.
So I find it important to get Catching Fire. We both just finished up reading Blue Moon also, the second book of the "Immortal Series" by Alyson Noel. The third book, Shadowland, is available and my daughter is just dying to read it. I hope I can pick this one up for us soon.
I also want to continue reading the Sookie Stackhouse series. I'm now needing book three, Club Dead.
Back in October I had listed a few books that I hope to get to in 2010 since I didn't get to it in 2009. Here are a few: Just After Sunset- Stephen King; Blaze- Stephen King; Eyes of the Dragon- Stephen King (a reread from early teen years); The Stand- Stephen King (I started this years ago, only got halfway through, then lost my book!)
I will also be keeping an eye out for the third book of the Hunger Games trilogy.
My husband is currently reading his Christmas present which is Under the Dome- Stephen King, which I might start reading as soon as my husband is finished with it. This is the largest, single story, book that Stephen King has published since The Stand. This book is 1072 pages and I think you might be able to consider the thing a lethal weapon were you to smack someone with it due to it's weight! There is no way I'll be laying down to read this or reading it anyplace else that doesn't have a table for me to rest it on.
I'm sure many, many more books will pop up over the year that I haven't thought of here. Again, there are quite a few of my old favorite authors that I'd love to find, but most of them are out of print and as of now remain out of touch for me.
How did your reading go for 2009? Any goals for 2010?
