I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…


THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Have you joined any challenges in reading for the new year? Do you have any general goals book or even not book related for 2017?

Welcome to the new year. I hope that everyone reading this will have a great year for this coming year. I know personally 2016 was a bit of a stinker for me.

I did manage to just barely hit my reading goal for 2016, but I did not end up posting all of the reviews for the books that I did read. Honestly, some of them were such stinkers they aren’t even worth the review, lol. I also managed to meet several of my other challenges, but I did not finish the Alphabet soup challenge or the British challenge.

I have joined several challenges again in 2017 and I am really hoping to hit them all this year. One of my goals in general for 2017 is to allow myself to be more rounded in how I spend my time. I used to have no problem hitting more than one book per week goals, but then I started to crochet and for the last several years have basically been doing crochet all the time. My Kindle can read to me and my audio books have been nice, but I need to start reading with my eyes again this year. So big goal is to make more time for other things again.

The 2017 reading challenges for me include:

52 books for the year
Witches and Witchcraft challenge
British book challenge
Alphabet soup challenge
Paranormal challenge
Mount TBR challenge
Historical reading challenge
YA reading challenge

I know this is a lot of challenges I am an addict, luckily I always make sure to join the ones that allow crossovers into other challenges. I am also giving some serious thought into creating my own reading challenge. I started thinking about it far too late to hit a 2017 challenge, but once I work through the details in my head, I might launch a “half year challenge” in the summer as a test to see if there is any interest for 2018.

  2. I crochet too. I learned a few years ago and when I first learned, I spent alot more time crocheting then reading. I can relate to the struggle to balance crochet and reading sometimes.

    Happy Monday!

    Getting it done early today – it still took like 2 hours to write because I kept getting side tracked!
