2015 TBR Challenge: January Intro

TBR Challenge

Here’s how the TBR Challenge is going to go:

  • I will write a post at the beginning of every month, outlining the books I intend to read.
  • I will be writing reviews and recommendations of every book that I do read.
  • I will also do a wrap-up post at the end of every month, showing the books I actually read.

So here are my books for January!

The Eyre Affair

 

The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde – A friend of mine is a big fan of this series (and the author in general) and I think the concept sounds really interesting so I thought I’d start the year off with something a bit off the wall!

 

 

 

 

 

The Dante Club

 

The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl – This is a book that I literally know nothing about. I just saw it in a charity shop, read the blurb and thought it sounded interesting. That was over a year ago so I think it’s about time I got round to it.

 

 

 

 

 

Paper Towns

 

Paper Towns by John Green – Given to me by a friend. I’ve read both The Fault in Our Stars and Looking For Alaska and didn’t really get on with either of them so I don’t really know what to expect from this but figure I’ll give it a go!

 

 

 

 

 

Stardust

 

Stardust by Neil Gaiman – I love Neil Gaiman’s writing style but I haven’t read nearly enough of his books. I hope to rectify that this year and so I figured I would start with one of the shorter ones. I’ve seen the film so will be interested to see how they compare.

 

 

 

 

High Fidelity

 

High Fidelity by Nick Hornby – I really enjoyed this movie and all the pop culture referencing and I heard that it was even more so in the book so picked it up awhile ago and never got around to reading it. Let’s change that now! It’s only short too so will hopefully be a nice quick read.

 

 

 

 

The Museum's Secret

 

The Museum’s Secret by Henry Chancellor – Another case of ‘it looked interesting in a charity shop’. It appealed to me because I like any stories with magical places within our world and as a fan of the Night at the Museum movies, I thought it sounded somewhat similar. Plus you need to read a kids book every now and again!

 

 

 

 

So that is my line-up for January! If I manage to squeeze any more in, I will include them in my reviews and monthly wrap-up!

    Can’t wait to hear what you think about Stardust, it’s one of my favourites (as you know!) Seriously think I’m going to have to give some Jasper Fforde a go this year as well.
