January 2015 TBR List and Reading Challenge

Hello dear Readers,

Hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Eve and New Years. 

Today, I would like to share my January TBR, what I will be reading this January, and also talk a little bit about my Reading Challenge.

In one week and a half I will be traveling to Costa Rica to see my family and I will spend one month there. I am going to try to read as much as I can before I leave. My TBR consists in two books and maybe one e-book.

The first book I will be reading is the Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I read this book when I was in school, I think it was fifth grade. It was a long time ago and I do not really remember anything about the it but I remember I liked it. I am excited to re-read it. I also heard there is a The Little Prince movie coming out. I am very curious to see how that will turn out.

The second book I will be reading is La Casa en Mango Street (The House in Mango Street) by Sandra Cisneros. I do not know much about this book other than what I heard a few booktubers said about it on their channels and all of them agreed it is an awesome book and it seems to be very interesting. I am excited to read this book as well.

Finally, if I have time, I will be reading one of the e-books I have on my Kindle, it is Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover. About this book the only thing I know is according to my fellow bookworms on Instagram it is a fantastic book. I decided to buy it and give it a try. Once I read it I will be posting my thoughts on it, as well as the other books I read this month.

About my reading challenge, I set my 2015 Goodreads Reading Challenge to 50 books. I decided the way I am going to accomplish this goal is to work my TBR Jar a little bit different. I will continue using my TBR as usual for the books I have not read and I also added to my jar the 2015 Book Riot Harder Reading Challenge. This consists on a 24 different tasks which allows people different things. For example, some of the tasks include: read a Sci-Fi book. Read a Microhistoy book. Read a graphic novel. Read a book retelling a classic story. I have never read any type of book in these categories. I will be really interesting to see how this goes for me.

I found out about Book Riot thanks to a booktuber I have been watching the last few weeks. I checked it out and it's fantastic. I like their you tube channel and they also have a Podcast which I have been listening to and I enjoying a lot. If you want to know more about Book Riot and about this challenge, you can visit their website at There is also a group discussion on Goodreads: 

I am looking forward to this challenge. I think it is going to expand my reading level a lot. I will be reading a different variety of genres. I will also be accomplishing two of my bookish goals for 2015: read more than I did in 2014 and also read more books from my local library. I am sure most of the books I will be using to complete each task on the challenge will be at the library.

Hope you all have a wonderful 2015. Happy reading and talk to you guys on my next post.
