"The Plan" AKA: What I want to read this week. Maybe...

<--- This is what I feel like most days. There are just so many books out there that I want to read. It's crazy. So I'm trying to get a bit more organized about it.

I've challenged myself to read 160 books this year. That's 15 books more than I managed last year, and works out to about 3 books a week. So each week on Sunday, I'm going to try to plan for the week ahead and post my reading plans here.

I say "try" because... well, I'm a commitment-phobe. I always have noble intentions of reading such and such book at such and such time, but I never do. I cheat and go for the quickie with a book that offers a thrill. What? I'm easy. I admit it. My pride AND my shame. ;)

Anyway, here's my plan for this week in Wordle, bookcover and title formats... 


The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard, #1)The Inventor (Fantasies of New Europa Series)The Poet (Jack McEvoy, #1)The Book of NegroesSpeak

The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard #1) by Scott Lynch
The Inventor by Morgan Karpiel
The Poet (Jack McEvoy, #1) by Michael Connelly
The Book of Negroes (AKA Someone Knows My Name) by Lawrence Hill
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

What is on the agenda for your reading list this week?


  1. Ooh! Great idea!! :)

    This might actually be something that could really help me right now... So far this year, I kinda suck at the whole reading thing :(

    Also- SPEAK!! That's SUCH an amazing book Becky!! :D AND it's short. (and amazing) and reads rather quickly. (and it's amazing).

    Oh, I seriously SO hope you get that one read! Can't WAIT to hear what you think about it! :D:D:D:D:D:D

  2. If ONLY I knew of an amazing book to read... *ponders*

    :P LOL

    I've been meaning to get to Speak for a loooooooooong time, and figured I should really do that soon, or I might be kicked out of the reading community. O_o

    Then I'd have to just stand at the window... begging to be allowed in, promising to be good this time, I swear.

    It would be traumatic.

  3. Great idea. Hehe, I feel the same way: "I always have noble intentions of reading such and such book at such and such time, but I never do..." so planning it out might be a good thing for me as well!

    I hope you reach your goals, both this week and for the year!
