2015 Reading and Blogging Goals

I have a few reading goals and two blogging goals for 2015.

 

Reading Goals

As I mentioned recently, I plan to read all of Kierkegaard’s pseudonymous works this year.

In addition, I plan to read all of the major works of Fyodor Dostoyevsky:

The Brothers Karamazov

The Idiot

Crime and Punishment

Notes From Underground

Poor Folk

The Possessed (a.k.a. Demons)

 

In March-May, I will be hosting a read-along of Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes (more on that in the future). I have no idea how bloggers make read-along buttons, but hopefully I will figure that out by March. Anyway, I think this year will be dedicated to reading more philosophical and satirical works.

Other authors whose works I’d like to explore are Walker Percy, Graham Greene, and Marilynne Robinson (finally, a living author!)

Of course, I will also continue to read through the list of Newbery Medal Winners and my Classics Book List (which is perpetually in flux).

 

Blogging Goals

In addition to posting reviews, I hope to revive my Saturday Literary Flashbacks and make more reflection posts. My reflection posts will analyze major themes in the novels, short stories, plays, and poems that I read throughout the year.
