I'm starting the year off with Practical Magic.



I set my GoodReads challenge goal to a reasonable 50 this year. I used to manage over 100 a year but last year I just couldn't do it, and stressed about the challenge until I finally just dropped it down to 0 so I wouldn't have to see it taunting me lol. I read 60 last year so 50 should be doable this year.

I plan to reread The Stand at some point.



and I want to finish Justin Cronin's trilogy (once I buy the last book and reread the first book)

I'm reading Robin Hobb's Assassin's Quest. Then I'll be on to the Liveship's trilogy.

My goal is to read 4999 books in 2018. Unbelievable? Someone told me if you wish to go up to the top of the mountain, you'll pass half of the way at least! I've finished The Magic of Oz, Better writing right now! Now I'm reading Harry Potter: The Chamber of Secrets. You-know-who wrote it)

I wanted to read more than last year, but I am already off to a bad start. I am being defeated by cedar/juniper pollens. I never was allergic until I moved here and even then, I don't get very sniffy, but my eyes get dry and its hard to read for long sessions. I have some other side effects I never knew could be from pollens.  :-\

Anywho, only 2 books in so far in the new year.

I just finished this one


I love this series. Still early into it so I have a few more to go. Thankfully.  ;D

594 pages of pageturning, twisting layers of about everything. Doesn't feel like reading 600 pages though, goes by fast. Now that is what I mean when I say I like stories with meat on them, not short stuff. I like to dig in.
I always feel like I am there with these books and I like the setting being in britain. Still looking for more mysteries set in britain, not in the US.

I am starting the next in the St. Mary's series. I think.
A trail through time. I can't pull up the link in link maker for some reason.

i have a few library loans lined up I have to read after it.

The Rabbit Back Literature Society, a strange and enchanting Finnish book a friend recommended several years ago. Described aptly as "Twin Peaks meets the Brothers Grimm", it is very good, in a clever, unsentimental and twisted sort of way.

I just started City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty. She is sublime at descriptions of food and clothing and the world-building is mesmerizing.

Finishing up with Hugo's The Man Who Laughs in French, continuing with Tolstoy's Anna Karenina in Russian, and planning to start Chateaubriand's Atala and Rene.  :)

Prince of Nothing series, maybe Senlin Ascends. I don't have a great idea of what I'm doing this year. At least not yet.
