What I’m Reading January

If you thought I loved the feeling of a new month, every month, then you better believe I love a new year! I’ve already talked about resolutions so right off the bat, let’s get in to the books I want to read this month!

In sticking with my resolution of reading at least two books from my unread shelf, I’m planning to start the new year with two of my most recent purchases:

  1. Hungover by Shaughnessy Bishop Stall
  2. My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent

After a disappointing December reading month, I need some freedom in my TBR and one way I discovered in the last month to do this is to read the last book you purchased and let yourself enjoy the excitement of a new book.

Hungover is a book I bought pretty impulsively because after reading the description, I couldn’t put it back on the shelf. It tells the story of one man’s quest around the world to cure the hangover. I love seeing different culture’s health remedies so I thought this sounded so interesting and as a bonus, I think it will make for great conversation starters when I’m done!

My Absolute Darling is a book I’ve had my eye on for years! The bookseller in my hometown advised me not to read it due to graphic content, but the bookseller in my new town of South Park, San Diego told me it’s one of his favorite books ever. Let the battle of the booksellers begin!

Beyond that I’m not sure what I’ll read — with the exception of an overload of David Sedaris! I’m currently listening to his latest collection, Calypso, on audio, and I also want to read his holiday collection, Holidays on Ice, that I received from my boyfriend for Christmas!

Here’s to an excellent year of reading — starting right now!
