Day 11: How many books are you
reading in 2016?
Top books on your TBR?
I normally plan to read around 50 books a year, but you never know what life has in store for you so that is a safe bet for me.
The top books on my TBR stack are mostly historical fiction or women's fiction. I have a few in the mystery genre.
Mystery used to be my main genre, but it has now switched to historical fiction and women's fiction.
I listed a few book in another post that are my top books.
Right now I have a list of about nine books that I definitely want to read, and they all are in those three genres.
I don't set a goal and read what I can.ReplyDelete
I usually aim for a low number so I am not stressed.
Thanks for stopping, Kathy.
Hi Elizabeth and Kathy,ReplyDelete
I agree with you both about setting a reading goal that is achievable, so that I don't feel pressured or stressed by half way through the year.
I seem to be stuck in a nice way, to a whole series of psychological thrillers and have discovered some great new authors along the way. I do have quite a few different genres on my TBR shelves, so I should make a conscious effort to ring the changes very soon and try something new :)
Enjoy your challenge. I hope that all is well with you and enjoy your week.
I can't do anything that is stressful. :)Delete
Sounds like you have something good going on with your thriller series.
ENJOY, and thanks for stopping, Yvonne.
I really have no idea of the top books I'm looking forward to for 2016. I only know of one right now. Harlan Coben's book to be released in March called Fool Me Once. :)ReplyDelete

Thanks for stopping, Diane.
I love following your blog because my favorite genres are historical and women's fiction, and I always get great new suggestions from what you are reading. Speaking of, The Violinist of Venice arrived - thank you so much! I am so excited to read it! JenniferReplyDelete
Awwww....thank you, TarheelFIT1.Delete
I love both those genres. Glad to know you are a fan also.
Let me know what you think of The Violinist of Venice.
GREAT you received the giveaway win. ENJOY!!
Thanks for stopping.
Only historical fiction I have read is by Melanie Benjamin. Love her stuff.ReplyDelete
I started The Swans of Fifth Avenue tonight. I actually cannot get interested. I was so looking forward to reading it.Delete
I even have a signed copy.
On to the next book. :)
Thanks for stopping, Shannon.
Great goal. It's always great to pick a comfortable number and not stress out about it. I do the same thing. Thanks for stopping by!ReplyDelete
Definitely...no sense stressing out.Delete
Thanks for stopping, Megan.
I set my goal at 100 this year.. I am aiming to over shoot it, but at the same time I am reading for MY ENJOYMENT, not to meet a number, so I very well might not even hit 100.. Who knows!ReplyDelete
I actually was never able to get into Historical Fiction.. I mean I like SOME of it - but for some reason it has to be certain kinds and written a certain way for me to enjoy it.. Which is weird, because I LOVE watching Historical Movies.. makes no sense to me lol
I hope you enjoy all your books!
