New year, new books, new challenges. It's mid of January, high time to pick some great reads. If you still have no reading plans for the first month of the new year, here are some book recommendations from BookLikes Blogs.

Bitter Spirits (Roaring Twenties) - Jenn Bennett - Roaring twenties? Raw lust? Black magic? Sold! The moment I read this blurb and saw positive ratings from book bloggers that I trust, I knew I needed to read this.

The Emperor's Blades (Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne) - Brian Staveley - I've recently started reading and enjoying high fantasy, and have been looking for more books to read in this genre.

A Mad, Wicked Folly - Sharon Biggs Waller - The fact that the story is set in the 1900s in London is enough to tempt me.

It is again a new year, and I can tell you all, it will be filled with books. I will however try and take it easier this year. 700+ books is fun, but also a bit stressful at times. Now for January, a bit busy in regards with books. First of all, my pre-orders (I got quite a few and I will only list those I haven't read yet, some pre-orders are books I already read, but I was waiting for to come out in paperback).

These are some of the books that I plan on reading in January. Oh and I'll be posting my review of "Girl on the Golden Coin" in January as well. 

The Martian: A Novel - Andy Weir - This one is about an astronaut who is one of the first to walk on Mars and finds himself stranded there.

Longbourn - Jo Baker - I am usually wary of books about Jane Austen's characters but this looked interesting so I decided to take a chance on it.

The Hobbit - J. R. R. Tolkien - I am ashamed that I have yet to read this and Lord of the Rings so I have decided to read them during 2014.
