Hola folks! I am back with my #TBR for 2018 and this year I colour coded the books to be read and have made batches for the months. But of course this will spill over and also newer ones will get added surreptitiously cause I tend to be influenced by book reviews and what others are reading in my book club.
So I am hoping to read about 50 books this year which translates to about 4 books on average per month and I hope to read a few bonus ones too; to make up for not completing the challenge last year.
This years list has some esteemed names such as Ruskin Bond, Laini Taylor, Gabriel Garcia Marquez (whom I am re-attempting to read), Neil Gaiman, Paulo Cohelo, Marget Atwood and David Mitchell amongst others. I also have to read 10 Indian/India based authors this year for the HTBrunch challenge and have included Ruskin Bond, Sudha Murty, Sudha Koul, Shanta Gokhale, APJ Kalaam and have to add some more to make up the ten.
The milieu of the stories is a mixed set – from Saudi Arabia to China to Japan to India; from the dystopian era to philosophy to surrealism to fantasy – I think I have it all in the bag here. Yes there is chick lit and YA too in this set as I am never too old to read that.
So wish me luck and do pass on the recco of a good book if you so shall encounter in this year. Also if we happened to be reading the same book, it would be great to compare our notes on it …………….. to be continued
I will be writing a synopsis of the books I read at the end of every month; I think it will just motivate me to read more and stay on course this year.
