Happy 2013, everyone! I hope this year brings you much happiness and success.
I took part in a few challenges last year, but I absolutely failed in keeping track so I am only doing two this year:
Goodreads Reading Challenge
Goal: 100 books.
I didn’t even reach this number in 2012, just barely missing it, but I think I can do it. Still, as this past year proved, life can get a little hectic so I’m not going to freak out if I fall behind. As Maggie Stiefvater tweeted the other day: “In 2012, I sort of thought “I’m going to read as many books as I can!” I think in 2013, it’ll be “I’m going to love as many books as I can!” YES.
2013 Debut Author Challenge – Hosted by Hobbitsies
Goal: 15 books.
I read (roughly) 23 debuts in 2012 so I think this is a good number. This was a favorite challenge of mine in 2011 so I definitely look forward to discovering new authors and books. Hopefully I can keep track of what’s a debut and what’s not because I think I struggled with that a bit in 2012.
• Write reviews right after. It sucks to do it months later. I really hope I can do this one!!
• Expand the blog with posts that aren’t reviews and memes.
• I did slow down with requesting books in 2012 so I want to continue with that.
• Read outside of my comfort zone.
Anyway, onto the giveaway! Read on, people. [Read more...]
