Hello Readers

I have resolved to set down a few resolutions in regards to  blogging and reading for 2016. I find, especially for blogging, it’s better to have a plan and stick to it for the most part.

I am a newbie to blogging and although I’m pleased with how my blog is doing so far, I want to focus more on original content for 2016. Now, that does not mean that I won’t be doing Blog/Book Tours, Cover Reveals and or Blasts because I love doing these.

It does mean, however that most of these will be promotional posts instead of review posts since I want to have time to read the books on my ever-growing TBR.

So here are the resolutions I have set out for my Blog for 2016:

  • One Review (not including those for Blog Tours) per week to be done on a Wednesday and will be given a name
  • My Week In Books is going to continue to be a weekly feature and will be done on a Monday
  • A new feature to be introduced for Friday
  • Monthly Wrap-Up to include posts made and number of reviews
  • TBR not to exceed 10 books ( subject to addition or subtraction depending on how my week goes)
  • Take part in more challenges or memes ( maybe something for Tuesday)
  • Learn more about how to promote my Blog on Social Networks

Here are my Reading Resolutions:

  • Read and Review all outstanding NetGalley books (including ARCs) before requesting anymore
  • Be more selective about accepting Books for review
  • Hauls not to exceed 5 books each month
  • Revise my TBR List and ‘clean’ up my ereader
  • Read only after I have studied at least 2 hours
  • Try to exceed the number of books read in 2015
  • Be more open to reading genres like Contemporary, Dystopian, Science Fiction and Literary Fiction
  • Keep a better record of my books by adding to Goodreads

Now for a Look at The Challenges I will be participating In :

ROCK-1

This challenge is hosted by Sarah K, The YA book traveler.

The Rules are:
  • read a minimum of 1 book per month you already own (published book).
  • I’m planning to read at least 10 books from my personal TBR and another 12 from NetGalley and any other books for review.
  •  Use the hastag #RockMyTBR for current discussion.
