January TBR

Designated by different challenges I’m participating in this year:


#RockMyTBR Challenge

I am going to TRY to read at least 5 books I already own each month.  For January, I’m thinking about the following:

Trick, by Natalia Jaster
Mechanica, by Betsy Cornwell
Vinyl (The Vinyl Trilogy #1), by Sophia Elaine Hanson
The Steep and Thorny Way, by Cat Winters
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, by Becky Albertalli

2016 Debut Author Challenge

I’m going to try to read at least 1 debut author every month (maybe more!)  For January, I’m thinking one of the following:

The Love that Split the World, by Emily Henry
This is Where it Ends, by Marieke Nijkamp

And since that’s actually less than I thought there’d be, I may just read both!

2016 Diverse Reads Challenge

I’m trying to read more diverse books.  I don’t have a specific goal in mind for each month–I’m hoping for at least two, but we’ll see what happens! This also isn’t excluding any other books set for the month that also fit the challenge! For January, I think I’m leaning toward:

Inside Out and Back Again, by Thanhha Lai
The Girl Who Fell from the Sky, by Heidi W. Durrow


These are more easily worked around (because I can use whatever books I read, pretty much, to fill the slots).

I Spy:  Book Titles Challenge

I already have a few for this planned above!  Those are:

8. Brave New WorldThe Love That Split the World
11. The Diary of a Young GirlThe Girl Who Fell from the Sky
20. Where the Red Fern Grows — This Is Where It Ends

2016 Popsugar Reading Challenge:

Again, a few of these have already been slotted out above!  Those are:

2. A National Book Award winner — Inside Out & Back Again
20. A science-fiction novel — Vinyl

The TBR Randomiser Challenge:

And once more, a few have already been plotted for January! (Man I’m doing good!):

15. Inside Out & Back Again
16. The Girl Who Fell from the Sky

And that’s it for January!  If you guys see a book here you’ve been wanting to read and would like to set up a buddy read of sorts, let me know below!  Also, if you’ve read any of these and want to share a few thoughts with me (preferably sans spoilers!) feel free!

What are your plans for the first month of 2016?  Link me to your own TBR lists, if you’ve got them?  Are you participating in any challenges this year?

Until next time, happy book-ing!
