Booking Through Thursday- Reading Resolutions

So … any Reading Resolutions? Say, specific books you plan to read? A plan to read more ____? Anything at all?
Name me at least ONE thing you’re looking forward to reading this year!



I don't have many reading resolutions. I try to read all of the YA books that I order, and most of the juvenile fiction that comes in as well (I am a youth services librarian and I like to be aware of content.) This year I am going to try a few challenges, which is something that I have tried before. I am going to do an alphabet challenge where I read one YA book with a title that begins with each letter of the alphabet. I am also considering doing either a 52 books in 52 weeks challenge or a 100 books challenge. I haven't decided which one yet, I guess I will gauge it on how my schedule looks with programs and such that we have planned throughout the year. I may try some other challenges if I see any that seem interesting. I would like to read more adult fiction, but I seldom have time and to be honest I prefer YA books to most adult fiction that I have read lately. I am really looking forward to reading Maureen Johnson's sequel to Suite Scarlett which is titled Scarlett Fever. Also, I don't think that John Green has anything coming out in 2009, but if he does then it goes to the top of my "Must Read NOW" pile.
