Alana (bovygirl) | 13 comments Hi there! I joined this group rather late last year and was unable to meet my goal of 50 books. In my defence I missed my goal by one book so I don't feel all that bad.

My goal this year is to read 100 books. My other goal is to increase my reading speed while maintaining my comprehension level.

Alana (bovygirl) | 13 comments My January reads:

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

Stardust by Neil Gaiman

Heat Rises (Nikki Heat, #3) by Richard Castle

In the Garden of Beasts Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin by Erik Larson

Wicked Business (Lizzy & Diesel, #2) by Janet Evanovich

I am already falling behind, so i guess I have to pick up the pace in February. Wish me luck!

Alana (bovygirl) | 13 comments Working toward my goal of reading more mystery novels. I am also trying to vary things by reading some graphic novels.

Let Me Call You Sweetheart by Mary Higgins Clark I Heard That Song Before by Mary Higgins Clark Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus, Vol. 1 by Joss Whedon Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus, Vol. 2 by Joss Whedon

Then I needed a good old fashioned romance
