2013 Reading Challenge

I have challenged myself to read 52 books in 2013.  This is a little less than 2012 but I have a lot of very large books on my list.

There are a few series that I hope to catch up on completely:

  • Outlander – 6 books (#2-7).  I will also read book 8 if it is released this fall as planned.
  • The Dark Tower – 4 (#4-7).  I may also read some of the other related novels (ex. The Wind Through the Keyhole).

Favorite Author Books:

  • Stephen King (already have the Dark Tower series to read):
    • 11/22/63 (up next)
    • Dr. Sleep – a follow-up to The Shining coming out this year.  Will pre-order!!
    • Bag of Bones
    • Carrie (re-read)
    • Salem’s Lot (re-read)
    • It (re-read)
  • Diana Gabaldon (already have the Outlander series to read) – hope to start the Lord John Grey series.
  • Anne Rice – The Witching Hour (re-read).  There may also be a follow-up to The Wolf Gift.  I will read it but need to keep my fingers crossed as I didn’t love the 1st in this series.
  • Joe Hill
    • 20th Century Ghosts
    • Locke and Key (series)
    • NOS4A2 – comes out in April.  Cannot wait!

Classics (I really need to read more classics!):

  • Frankenstein
  • North and South
  • The Last of the Mohicans
  • Anna Karenina

I also have a ton of E-books to get through and want to leave some openings for new authors.  Does anyone have any suggestions for me?  I would love to hear about your most anticipated novels of the year and your own reading goals.
