We survived the first week of January! How are you all feeling about the year so far? I know sometimes it’s hard to get back into a routine after the holidays.
My week has been a bit hectic. I woke up a few days ago with a terrible cough and was forced to take a few days out of work. This was the first time in a while where I had felt so sick that I had no energy. I’m happy to say I’m back to being my usual healthy self, and it wasn’t covid.
Before going back to work, I decided to go to a bookstore. This gave me a fascinating idea, and hopefully, you guys will enjoy it as well.
Welcome to the very first book club here on Some Punny Bunny!
I’m so excited to launch this series and hopefully continue to add more options like video reviews and maybe even zoom meetings. All suggestions are welcome. I’ve never done this before.
I plan to share 3-4 books that I have chosen to read throughout the month on my Instagram. Anyone can join in at any time!! I will continue to update everyone on how I’m enjoying them in recaps before writing a follow-up with a blog post at the end of the month.
If you want, join me in reading. Remember to read at your own speed. When I read books that I love, I tend to read the whole thing SO fast. Feel free to pass on reading any book you’ve already read or aren’t interested in.
I have 18 books planned for the year already, each one varying in genre and topic. I plan on adding more books. I want to read at least 24 books this year. This book club will be helping me stay on track with my reading.
As for the books, I will add to the list; it just depends on what comes out, what people recommend to me, or what I find randomly. So feel free to suggest any books in the comments.
In no particular order, here are the books I plan to read in 2022
- The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
- A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
- Run, Rose, Run by Dolly Parton and James Patterson
- It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover
- Today, Tonight, Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon
- The Weight of the Stars by K. Ancrum
- The Shore of Women by Pamela Sargent
- Just Your Local Bisexual Disaster by Andrea Mosqueda
- Oona Out of Order by Margarita Montimore
- Three Pianos: A Memoir by Andrew McMahon
- Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
- The book of life by Deborah Harkness
- The storyteller by Kathryn Williams
- The Idiot by Elif Batuman
- Either/Or by Elif Batuman
- Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner
- I Fear My Pain Interests You by Stephanie LaCava.
- The Maidens by Alex Michaelides
This month, I have chosen three books!
I thought starting with the books I missed reading in 2021 would be most straightforward. These books have been on my TBR list for the longest. I would always talk myself out of buying them. And finally, I had enough of hearing about how good these books were without reading them for myself.
