2016 Resolutions

HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS!

I hope 2016 will be a happy year for all filled with lots of fun

As is custom I’ve set myself some blogging and life resolutions which I decided would be interesting to share.

Blogging Resolutions 

1. Post at least twice a week: I’m approaching my last year of schooling which is going to get hectic I’m sure and in that I don’t want to lose my passion for blogging or leave you guys hanging, so I’m going to make a real effort to put content out there.

2. Participate:  I’m really starting to appreciate this book-loving community we have and I’ve enjoyed participating in bookish events across the internet and in real-life surrounded by like minded people. So let’s continue that in 2016

3. Collaborate:  This was one of my resolutions for last year which I didn’t exactly complete. But guys, I really do want to have people contribute content to this blog or do a guest post on another blog, we’re gonna make it happen!

Personal Resolutions 

1. Live in the moment: I want to really stop worrying about the past or the future and just enjoy the moment right now, especially because it’s my last year of high school and I want to remember as much as I can.

2. Learn to love and value myself: This is a really personal one because often times I am my harshest critic 

3. Find ways to grow and improve without being too harsh on yourself

4. Have faith that everything will work out the way it’s supposed to 


Those are my goals for the year!

What are some of your resolutions?

2015 Bookish Resolutions in Review

At the start of the year I made a post about my bookish resolutions for 2015. Needless to say they soon become lost among all the book reviews and life I was caught up in. It would only be fair to look back and see how I did.

Resolution #1: Read Debut and Stand Alone Novels

I’m proud to say I achieved this goal very well and some of my favourite books from 2015 have been debut and/or stand alone. These include All The Bright Places, Am I normal Yet? I was Here etc.

Resolution #2: Give Books to charity

Only the other day I donated 2 bags full of books I wasn’t interested in keeping or was never going to read. I hope they go to someone who’ll enjoy them more than I did!

Resolution #3: Blog at least twice a week: 

I believe I somewhat stuck to this goal. I did blog regularly except sometimes I would take a few unannounced hiatus’ because life.

Resolution #4: Build a network 

I’ve become really close with the Aussie YA Bloggers community this year and met so many new bloggers and made friends out of them

Resolution #5: Win Something 

Hmm does winning at life count? Haha I didn’t exactly win anything but I’m proud of all that I have accomplished so that makes up for it I guess

Resolution #6: Get 200 followers on this blog

We’re getting closer to this goal, not to mention my email followers have been growing at a much greater rate. Numbers aside, I believe I’ve acquired some very loyal followers who regularly like and comment so much love to you guys ❤

Resolution #7: Consider Self-Hosting 

I was giving some thought to this the other day. I don’t believe I’m ready yet, I mean I’m lacking good reasons to go Self-Hosted. What would be some benefits of self-hosting?

Resolution #8: Collaborate with other bloggers 

This was something I found was lacking this year. Perhaps this could be my resolution for 2016?

My 2016 Resolutions post will be up tomorrow if anyone wants to have a read after being hungover from New Year’s haha. I hope you guys have had an incredible 2015, I know I have and wishing you all the best for the coming year, 2016!!

Happy 2015 everyone!

We’ve managed to complete another orbit around the sun which means it’s time to set some goals which potentially may or may not to be completed throughout this year.

I’ve created a not so impressive doodle of my blog/book related goals for this year and as I complete each of these goals I’m going to be colouring in a part of my doodle so by the end of the year we shall have a nice colourful picture. Do you like it? I like it, it’s quirky.

1. Read Debut and stand alone novels: In 2014 I got so caught up in staying up to date with my series that I forgot to discover new books and authors. This year will be different.

2. Give books to charity: If any of you like myself watch Booktube you would know there is this trend where you unhaul books and give them to charity or something and I think it’s about time I do something good for this world.

3. Blog at least twice a week: I would like to post a review at least once a week and some other bookish things on other days, I’m confident I can blog twice at least. What two days would you prefer? comment!

4. Build a network: Doing Top 10 of 2014 and some Read-a-thons I got to discover so many new blogs and I love chatting with people on Twitter. In 2015 I really want to integrate myself in this book community and experience awesome things!

5. Win Something: I did NaNoWriMo this year and WON yes so I want to win NaNoWriMo again or win something because it is a confidence booster okay

6. Get 200 followers on this blog: The numbers have never been a big deal to me but I would like to meet new people and discover their blogs and yeah.

7. Consider self-hosting: With school I’m not sure I’ll be able to make such a big step just yet but I want to look into it.

8. Collaborate with other bloggers: This includes people guest posting on my blog or me guest posting on other people’s blogs or hosting a read-a-thon, you get the idea. Anyone interested? hit me up

This concludes my aspirations for this blog and my reading in 2015. What are some of your resolutions? Remember you have a 365 paged blank book so make it a good one.
