I'm sure the future 2021 me will be cussing 2020 me out by mid-August, but that's a problem for later.
Since 2020 has brought out the shopaholic in me, I've decided that 2021 will be the year of reading (& re-reading) books I already own. Including books I bought this December that I haven't read yet, gifted books I haven't touched since the day I received them, and books I can read one hundred times over. I've compiled a list of 24 books: 12 poetry collections and 12 novels/memoirs to read through in the New Year.
However, creating a plan means nothing without any accountability, so I'm sharing it here to haunt me throughout 2021. All the books on my list will be linked if you would like to read along with me.
Here is what I will be reading (& re-reading) in 2021 ...
