It's a brand-new year, full of possibilities, excitement, and yes, resolutions. We all make 'em, but they tend to fizzle by the beginning of February.
If you've resolved to read more in 2015 but you don't know where to start (or just can't choose), why not take it month by month? Ahead, we've hand-picked five excellent books — from poetry to fiction to essays — that you can tackle each month from now through next December, for a grand total of 60 books. Better yet: They're all written by fellow New Yorkers (and, in some cases, they're also set in NYC). So, get ready to curl up and read your way through 2015.
