Long time no talk! I am sorry for my long absence, but as many of you know I am a university student, and I also worked part-time in a retail store - it was a lot to balance. I didn’t have any extra time, and when I did I was too tired to read!
All excuses aside, I do plan on picking up the slack in the next year, starting with my reading and blog! I have missed this communication with you, and sharing my life as well. I figured the best way for me to keep on track and motivated, would be to give myself a list of goals relating to my blogs (this one specifically). I will be doing a similar goals/resolution post on my lifestyle blog, so keep an eye out for that!
Goal #1: Read 75 books
This is the same Goodreads challenge that I had set for myself this year, and unfortunately did not achieve. I was only a few books shy of completing it, and hope I can do it next year.
Goal #2: Read longer books
I am a wimp when it comes to books over 400 pages, as I find them very intimidating. I have still not read Game of Thrones for this reason, but it is something I am hoping to change in 2016.
Goal #3: Bring “Owned TBR” down to 100 or less books
I currently own around 400 books, 250+ of which are unread. If you are my friend on Goodreads, you will see I have a shelf dedicated to these books in which to track my progress, and it is my goal to see this number be less than 100. Whether it is through reading them or donating them, I want to have a much shorter TBR pile by the end of next year.
Goal #4: Complete the Popsugar 2016 Reading Challenge
I will be doing a separate video talking about these challenges!
Goal #5: Reread 5 books
I have quite a few books that I want to reread this year, and want to make sure I get to at least five of them. The five that I have chosen are; The DUFF, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Flowers in the Attic, Twilight, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Make sure you let me know what your goals for 2016 are, and look out for more posts coming your way! One of my main resolutions is to post weekly, and I hope not to let you all down (again)!
