So this week, I've had a little fun coming up with my Reading List for Resolution Number 4...
Read Authors A-Z...
The idea is that I read 26 books I have never read before by the end of the year, by authors A-Z, beginning with A and running all the way to Z by the end of the year... I have some books already lined up, but on the letters I'm stuck for, I'm planning to hit the library and uncover some unknown authors!
I've been doing a bit of Amazon Kindle "window-shopping", jotting down some books I've wanted to read for ages, and also taking recommendations... and I've started reading my first book.
It's taking me right back to my childhood, and I'm not complaining!
I've started my book challenge with one of my favourite childhood authors, with a book I have not read before...
Introducing for the letter "A"...
The Old-Fashioned Girl
by Louisa May ALCOTT
Louisa May Alcott is one of those writer's who takes you right into the story... I mean, who doesn't love Little Women?! I love the fact that her stories always have slightly non-conventional characters and feel-good storylines with a good dose of reality thrown in. The sort of books all little girls should read, and the sort of books all little girls who grow up into women go back to read again and again before reading them to their own little girls.
You just don't get classics like these any more!
So I think its fair to say my book challenge is off to a good start... I've already got my "B" book lined up (a biography), but I'm looking for recommendations of books that EVERYONE should read beyond that. I'm talking your "favourite ever books" and "favourite ever authors"... so wing your ideas my way in the comments below!!!
And if anyone fancies joining me on my little 2015 challenge, leave a comment and instagram/tweet your books with #atozauthors and we can all share a little book love!!
Happy weekend everyone!
