Welcome to My Life

I love the start of the New Year – new beginnings and new books to read.  So I like this set of questions thinking about the year  to come in books from Margot at Confessions of a Mystery Novelist.  You can put as many restrictions (e.g. only books you read in 2010, or only books on your 2011 TBR list, etc.) or as few restrictions on your answers as you want. Following Margot’s example, I’ve used crime fiction titles to complete the answers to the questions and except for the first book (which I’ve read) these are all books on my TBR list:

I spent my New Year’s Eve: Among the Mad ‘“ (Jacqueline Winspear)

I’ve made a resolution to: give up Playing with Fire (Peter Robinson)

I plan to quit my habit of: Road Rage (Ruth Rendell)

I hope I’ll get to visit: The Black Tower (P D James)

One project I didn’t finish last year but want to finish this year is: The Death Maze (Ariana Franklin)

I want to learn: The Interpretation of Murder (Jedd Rubenfeld)

I’m not looking forward to: Evil Under the Sun (Agatha Christie)

My biggest dream for the year is: A Cure for All Diseases (Reginald Hill)

I hope I don’t end up: The Dumb Witness (Agatha Christie)

I’ll probably spend a lot of time: Telling Tales (Ann Cleeves)

  1. Margaret – Oh, these are terrific answers! I especially like your answers to I plan to quit my habit of and I want to learn. Thanks for doing this and sharing it. Oh, I think you’ll like that Ruth Rendell novel very much.


  2. Hi Margaret,

    Those are some great answers, using some fantastic sounding books, from one of my favourite genres.

    I am a little worried that you are eager to learn ‘The Interpretation Of Murder’ … I’ll say only nice things about your blog, PROMISE!!!

    I completed a very similar meme recently, but I had not anticipated how difficult it would be, given that I am not a very prolific reader compared to most of you, therefore my choice of titles was somewhat restricted. LOL when I read it back to myself.



  3. Oh fun! I love how well your titles fit. I keep thinking that Ann Cleeves is Henry VIII’s fourth wife though. I’m going to do this on my blog too, thanks!
