Reading Wish List 2013 - Express Yourself

Express Yourself!
The Express Yourself meme is a weekly jaunt brought to you by Dani at Entertaining Interests and Jackie at Bouquet of Books. At the beginning of the month the girls will post a gadget with a list of topics, something different for each week. Make sure to head on over to either of these blogs to check out the details more fully and see who else is taking part.      

This weeks topic of conversation: List the book(s) you wanted to read this year but never got around to...
There are two sets of books that I really wanted to read this year, but as usual plenty of things conspired against me.

The first is The Hunger Games.
I knew the new film would be out this year and wanted to catch up on the reading beforehand. I got as far as downloading the first one to my Kindle but haven't read any of it yet. Loved the film though!

The second set is A Song of Ice and Fire.        
I only managed to read the first one and have read the first 100 pages of A Clash of Kings. My husband has read them all but has been sworn to silence until I catch up.
Next year will be my year for reading these!

I have managed to read 29 other books so it hasn't been all bad. Here's to next year for a bigger read count.
Have you read any of these? Any reading regrets this year?



  1. These two are my regrets! How about that? I also intended to read lots more of the classics, but found the language of some too much to get around. I needed to be in right mood, and found that mood came less and less.

    Happy Christmas and best of luck for 2014. X

  2. Started Hunger Games. Just got Catching Fire. I don't know when I'll start Ice and Fire. Wishing you and yours a very Happy Holidays! :)

  3. I loved The Hunger Games trilogy! I read it and watched the two movies. I also have A Song of Ice and Fire in my to read list but only got started a week ago. I'm reading A Game of Thrones at the moment, maybe we'll finish around the same time with the whole series ;)

    Have a wonderful new year, Heather!

  4. I read the Hunger Games... last year. But not the other two. I thought I was the last person on Earth to read it. :)

    I did read all of Game of Thrones. I hope we don't have to wait 10 years for the next in the series.

  5. I've read the first Hunger Games, but have no plans to read the rest. Haven't seen or read Game of Thrones. My goal in 2014 is to read more classics of scifi

  6. I want to read all of the Game of Thrones! I've obviously heard a TON about them... I definitely need to read more this year! Happy New Year, Heather!!! :)
