New Year's Reading Resolutions

I'm pretty excited about some of my goals for 2013, one of them being more reading! 2012 was a very challenging year that stretched me in directions I hadn't yet gone; every day was a learning experience. That being said, I didn't have much time to really sit down and read if it wasn't for school. This year, I won't necessarily have more time on my hands (quite the opposite I think) but since I won't be in school, I can commit all of my reading to that which I want to read. 

Among those books, I want to tackle five classic novels; I have a few British novels, an American novel, and Victor Hugo's The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I am debating whether to read Leo Tolsoy's Anna Karenina or Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. I will probably end up reading Anna Karenina because I have already read Wilde's novel and haven't read Russian literature since Crime and Punishment in high school.

If anyone wants to join in, I'm reading Jane Eyre first. I will follow it by reading Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. Comment if you're interested! 

 I also joined a monthly book club over on Cassie's blog Back to Her Roots where we'll be reading Terra, a young adult novel that is the first installment of author Gretchen Powell's Terrestrials series. If you like all things dystopian, then this might interest you! Happy Friday!


  1. The Picture of Dorian Gray is one of my favorite books, I highly recommend it.

    1. It's one of my favorites as well! I read it a few years ago and LOVED it.

  2. Jane Eyre is my favorite! I love dark, gothic romance. I will have to check out Terra too. YA dystopia is my jam!
