I've done a terrible job of meeting my yearly Goodreads challenge since 2014 so this year is the year. I have a list of 25 books I want to complete before the end of 2018 and here are the three novels I am aiming to finish in January.

Follow my Goodreads journey and let me know what your reading goals are for the New Year.

The Game of Thrones book set on a bookshelf

Little Fires Everywhere

Will Hill

This is a book I heard a lot about towards the end of 2017 so I'm currently reading it on my kindle. It's a slow starter but the plot seems interesting enough, revolving around an individual character and her experience before and after a dramatic fire in her home.

The Color Purple

Alice Walker

There are a few classics on my list to read including this well known novel-turned-movie. I haven't seen or read this before so it's eagerly anticipated. In my annual list of books I want to read there are an awful lot of fantastic female writers, whose work I'm very excited to delve into, including this.

A Clash of Kings

George R. R. Martin

I read A Game of Thrones (featured in Books of the Year 2017) last year and loved it so much that I finally got around to watching the TV series. I'm already fast approaching the end of the box set so far but I'd love the read the entire series before Season 8 next year.

Yes, I already know what will happen as I've watched the episodes but this isn't the first time I'll say it - there's so much more to characters in books, than on screen.

Best of luck with any reading related challenges you've set yourself this year!
