Books for January

So far, I have four books I am set on completing this month. I have a great feeling that I will be able to do so, and maybe even add on another book to my list!

1. Twilight, Stephanie Meyer. (498 pages.) While I started reading this mid-December, and am just halfway done with the book, I still have half of it to go. It is an easy read, somewhat intriguing, and I can see why teens are into the story. Depending on if I am satisfied with how the rest of the book fares, I may consider reading the rest of the series sometime this year.

2. Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World, Vicki Myron with Bret Witter. (271 Pages.) An abandoned kitten is stuffed through the book slot of a public library one night, only to provide inspiration and courage to not only a small town, but for people around the world. I love cats, people who care for and about animals, libraries, and reading. Looks like a cute read and I am looking forward to getting stuck in.

3. The Road, Cormac McCarthy. (304 pages.) Post-apocalyptic landscape, cannibals, desolation, a journey taken by a man and his son. These all serve for an interesting read. Plus, Cormac McCarthy writes with a wonderful voice.

4. Writing Down The Bones: Freeing The Writer Within, Natalie Goldberg. (180 pages.) This is a book that has been sitting on a shelf for over a year that I have skimmed through plenty of times. Noting her own experiences as a writer and teacher, Goldberg offers insight and advice to aspiring and working writers. She also offers ideas (prompts?) to get her reader's creative juices flowing. Today, I purchased Wild Mind by the same author, so I figured I should read in chronological order... Expect some free writes/blurbs/ideas in posts to come this month!
