Resolution January List

For starters, this is late. Like a week late. Sorry! January is the start of a new year but only the second month of the seventh year of the BookLust Challenge. I know, it’s confusing. I took off the planned poetry and haven’t added the short stories. I think for now, while the list is so big, I’ll keep them off.
