First of all; Happy new year! It’s been a while, and I’m sorry about that. I’ve been redecorating my room, I work at the post office and I’ve started my own news website. I’ve been so busy with that website that I haven’t read a single page since a few days before Christmas. And it only gets worse, cause for the first time in my life, I’ve lost a book. I repeat: I’VE LOST A BOOK! And not just any book, I’ve lost Good Omens (Smaxx December). Sorry again, Max..
Now, Max and I have had a month to relax, work, study and do all the things that needed to be done. All though, Max is still reading Good Omens. So now we are ready for a new season of The Smaxx Project. Get ready for Smaxx 2.0!
We’ve been having some Skype dates to brainstorm and now we’ve come up with a whole new reading list. Here we go!
We still chose a book every other month, but now we’ve linked it to categories. So here is our list for this year.
