Happy New Year!

Happy holidays and a happy new year to you all! I don’t normally do resolutions so I will state this is a GOAL instead: I want to blog more regularly in 2016! 2015 got me off to a decent start but I definitely lost track as the year progressed. New year, clean (blogging) slate! I can do it!

A few months into the year, I decided to go the “One Book Challenge” route: I was in such a reading slump that the pressure from my Goodreads goal (initially 130, I think) was driving me into a deep, dark pit of reading unhappiness. The one book challenge that several other bloggers inspired me to do was a way of taking the pressure off and reading for the love of it, not for the numbers. While I didn’t hit 130 books this year, or even 100, it’s still a success because I DNFd more books and found more books that I am so enamored with. (DNFing is a magical thing.) I’ve also grown pickier with my ratings — definitely a good thing! — and have less 5-star more 2-, 3-, and 4-star than past years.

You can find all the books I read both on my Goodreads and here on my blog.

In 2016….

Somehow, some way I really need to cut the number of books on my TBR shelves in half, at least. My TBR list is over 2 pages of 8.5×11 college-ruled Moleskine notebook paper. That’s insane. The largest it’s ever been.

Here’s to reading more and BLOGGING more in 2016!
