Hello everyone, and welcome to January 2021! Let’s get down to business right away with my TBR (to be read) pile for this month.
– Among the Beasts and Briars by Ashley Poston
– The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
– Legendborn by Tracy Deonn
– A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik
– Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell
– A Raven in My Heart by Kay McCracken
– Reflection by Elizabeth Lim
– You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day
– Skyhunter by Marie Lu
All these books are going to end up as reviews on Lit&Leta, so these are the only books that I am for sure reading in January. I have another small list of books I’d like to read for myself this month, but I’m not putting pressure on myself to read them, so I won’t be listing them here. However, I plan to post about all the books I read over on my Instagram, so if you’re interested in finding out what those books are and if I read them, follow me over there.
As for writing goals this month, I would like to add another 20,000 or so words to my novel (currently sitting at 48,163 words). One goal I have for 2021 is to have my novel written and partially edited, so I’ll keep you updated in these TBR posts as to my current word count and my goal for the next month.
I would also like to plot out a short story this month. If I end up with time to do this, I’ll share some details in January’s wrap-up post so you can see what it’s about and where I’m going with it. I’ve had so many ideas come into my head in the last two or three years, but I’ve always had other things to write for university classes or simply no time at all. Since my boyfriend has given me the amazing opportunity to be a homemaker for him while he works, I plan to use all the time I have towards furthering my writing. My dream is to make it my career.
Thank you for tuning into my TBR post for January. Share in the comments or over on Instagram what your TBR is! I’m always looking to add more books to my ever-growing list. Stay tuned for yet another post tomorrow!
