- Read more of my own books- This one is a given. I read 76 books last year but only a very small portion of them were off of my own shelves. And with the number of times that I bought books last year...well...this is going to have to change. This also means accepting fewer review copies (damn you NetGalley) and maybe a few less book tours. I try to always mix my review books with books that are for pleasure and just because but I want to do this even more. So read more of my own books!
- Work out consistently. Hahaha...I think that I am repeating my goals from last year! I've started out the new year pretty well with this so far but I NEED to stick with it. I'm bound and determined to shed a few of the pounds that I seem to keep gaining over the years. And I just want to be healthier. It is that simple.
- Finish some of the projects that I have planned. I'm the queen of procrastination so this one is going to be hard for me. But I really need to follow through and finish up some of my projects that I have had planned for years. An example would be learning to crochet and knit. Finishing up redecorating my bedroom. Organizing all of my closets. You get the picture, right? There are a bunch of things that I always say that I'm going to do but then never get done. This is the year that I'm going to knock a few things off of that list.
Starter House by Sonja Condit was my first read of the year and definitely an interesting way to start off the new year. This was a spooky read that left me turning the pages in anticipation of just what would happen next. I read this one for a TLC Book Tour and my full thoughts on it will be shared this Tuesday.
Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews was SUCH a good read! Whew! I flew through this book and just couldn't get enough. I'm so glad that I've made it a goal to catch up with this series because I think that it is definitely going to be worth my time. I'm planning on writing up my thoughts on this one and for Magic Bites as well that will hopefully go up this week. Maybe mini reviews? I haven't decided for sure yet.
In audio, I finished listening to Postmortem by Patricia Cornwell this week. The interesting thing to listening to books that you have already read is that you find things that you missed when previously reading. But I will talk more about that when I write up my thoughts. I'm currently reading the following books:
Forbidden is for a TLC book tour at the end of the month. And although The Winter People is also a review copy it is one of my most anticipated reads for the new year so I'm not complaining. I'm reading this one on my ipad and have once again pushed back A Study in Silks. On audio, I'm currently listening to Ceremony in Death by J.D. Robb.
Whew! That is enough out of me for one day. I'm hoping to get lots of laundry done today, a little bit of reading in both of my current reads, and a few reviews written. If I can get that all done then this will count as a success! Oh yeah, and 28 days until The Walking Dead returns! I cannot wait!
Happy Sunday and happy reading!
