Welcome to 2018... and to the 2018 Reading List thread.

For those of you unfamiliar with this idea, it's simply a place to track your reading goals, accomplishments, etc.

People in the past have tracked books they have read, or that they'd like to read. Others track books that they read for recreation, and/or for educational purposes. Others set a goal of a certain number of books (or pages) they'd like to read within a year, or use the list (& conversation) to discover new books or types of books that they're interested in...

It's entirely up to you!

So... reserve a post, and update it as appropriate to track what you wish concerning your literary goals for 2018. It's that easy. Yes

Happy Reading!

Bo's List!

1. Serial Killers: Shocking, Gripping True Crime Stories of the Most Evil Murderers - By Brian Innes
Really interesting book, covering serial killers from across the globe, starting with the man himself, Jack the Ripper 1888 in the UK, to the more recent Steve Wright, The Suffolk Strangler, 2006, also in the UK. The cover of the book is the mugshot of one infamous Ian Brady of the Moors Murders duo 1963-1966, also the UK...I think I'm seeing a pattern here in the UK lol, and I have to say that it is rather unnerving to look at his face, knowing what he has done. But, if you want to read up on a broad range of various serial killers, this is a good start. Yes
2. Emma - by Jane Austen (currently reading)
3.
4.
5.

I'm not sure that I have read any books this year. I've started a book...but I honestly haven't been interested in reading, even though I have had plenty of time to read. >.>

Congrats, Riley!

I have phases like that too from time to time, Bo... but they don't usually last more than a couple of weeks (if that long) for me. Maybe you need something interesting? Or maybe you just need a break...

I need to update my list again, but I also seem to be in a "looking for more (good) books" mode again. I've been stumbling in to some young adult books lately, which is fine, but... I need something with a little more "ooomph!" Ideas?

Oh geez, I need to update my list. XD

Blaze, I don't know if you like magical realism or if you ever tried reading one of Haruki Murakami's works?

He's my favourite Japanese author.

If you like vampires, witches, and other magical creatures, you might like the Hollow series by Kim Harrison. The first one is Dead Witch Walking.

21/11/18 I finished reading about serial killers this morning...instead of studying...coz I've been awake since 10am...yesterday morning and I have an exam at 1:50pm...so just over 2 hours...2 and a half. My brain no workie...but when I get home I will be sure to add the serial killer book to my list of unread books. >.>

I updated my list with my single book Laughing and added a review of the book as well, just in case people are curious...about serial killers. Laughing
