Happy Monday readers! Over the weekend I sat down and started planning out themes and such for the rest of the year. As I may have mentioned before I'm going to be having my second child this October. I don't know how many of you are parents but if you've experienced life with a newborn you probably have an idea of why I want to get organized well in advance!
For the month of August I'm going to be focusing on historical fiction. But not just plain old historicals. I decided to scour my TBR shelves and see what I had that I might want to get read. This resulted in a little bit of PNR but also some completely regular historical romances.
For the month of September I want to focus specifically on witches. The problem I am having here is finding some witch fic that focuses on them more than anything else. I have a young adult novel lined up but will need some suggestions for more. What are some of your favorite witch reads? And hey all you authors and publicists! If you have something to promote that focuses on witches let me know!
Because October will be very up in the air for me in spite of having a due date I think I will probably make it a month focusing on books about fledglings... newly turned main characters. Whether they be werewolves, vampires or something else a couple of these to keep me busy between contractions should be good.
For the month of November I anticipate being quite busy not only with a new baby but getting started on preparations for the holiday season. But best of all my birthday falls in November! Because of that I want to make that month the month of Rhi. Err... rather, I mean... RE-reading. I'll be celebrating my 30th birthday so what better to do than pick my top 30 books worthy of rereading and reread a few of them.
Lastly, the month of December will be (as it is every year for me) the month I devote to finishing all those books I set aside and haven't finished for 2009.
So there you have them ladies and gents... the themes for the rest of the year. They're all subject to change should something come up but I try not to do that if I can help it.
Now get those witchy recommendations coming! -- Rhi
