    My response is at My resolution is to read books listed in the Lifetime Reading Plan and the book I’m most looking forward to is the first book from the Forgotten Reams Series by R A Salvatore.

  17. KittyCat Says:

    I’ll definitely try to read as much as I can but this year, I’m trying to get more Mums and Dads in my country, Malaysia, to read with their kids.

    Here’s the Read-A-Book-A-Month Challenge I created.

    Hope I’ll have some supported in this tough task!

    (Seriously and shockingly, Malaysians only read an average of 2 non-textbooks a year)

    Happy New Year everyone…

  18. Josette Says:

    Hi Deb, Happy New Year!

    One of my resolutions would be to read more books this year and also to finish reading all my ARCs.

    As for specific books, yes there are a few of them. I’d like to read Breaking Dawn, a book which I feel like everyone else has already read them but me.

    I’m also looking forward to reading The Gift by Cecelia Ahern. Before this, I read two other books by her: PS, I Love You and Where Rainbows End. Both were great reads and I recommend them to those who enjoy heart and soul kind of stories.

    Oh, the most important part of all is to make more time for reading this year! :)

    In 4 months, i’ve already read books by authors from 16 different countries, including Sudan and Iran , and i’m already through 24 letters out of 26 !
    i also wanted to read more non fiction… but didn’t do much on that field yet !
