Blogger Resolutions and Books to read in 2011
As a new book blogger of 2010 I hereby promise to maintain these resolutions in the upcoming year.
1.) The most obvious resolution is to read, read, read! As much as I can whenever I can. I have this terrible problem where I can sit on twitter all evening long or I sit and watch YouTube video after YouTube video. As much fun as it is to do those things I don't need to do them as often as I do and certainly not for the length of time that I do. So my new thing is going to be to spend more free time reading!
2.) Comment on blogs more often. If you’re on my blog roll chances are I follow your blog religiously. “But you hardly ever comment!” I hear you say. Yes that is true I’m really bad with leaving comments. I myself know what a lovely feeling it is to have people take the time to comment on something you’ve written so I vow to do this more in the future and spread the comment warm fuzzys!
3.) To take up Waiting on Wednesday. I LOVE this meme and I did take part in it when I started blogging but then I couldn’t find time for it anymore so gave up. I think WoW is a fab meme for finding out about upcoming titles and sharing with others books you’re excited about so I’m going to try and at least do a WoW every other week so keep your eyes peeled for that!
4.) Carry on keeping on top of review books and reviews.
5.) Carry on writing honest reviews and not being swayed to write a more positive review for fear of upsetting anyone.
6.) Meet lots of new blogger friends! The blogging community is such a lovely thing to be part of and whilst I have met so many wonderfully bookish people this year I want to carry on and meet so many more of you in 2011. I want to find new book bloggers and make them feel as welcome as everyone made me feel.
Books to read in 2011I can’t believe how many amazing sounding books I missed out on this year, so here’s a list of some of those books that I really want to get read in 2011 1.) The Mortal Instruments series and Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare- even though I DID make a start on this series I still need to read City of Glass and Clockwork Angel. I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve read so I’m excited to carry on with this series in 2011!
2.) Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl- How did I *NOT* read this book? I loved Beautiful Creatures so I really need to get round to this one ASAP!
3.) The Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty- again I started this series loved it and haven’t yet read the last 3 books! I really need to because JD is AMAZING!
4.) Firelight by Sophie Jordan- I’ve been looking forward to this book for so long. It’s waiting patiently on my shelf and I WILL get round to it in 2011!
5.) Spy Glass by Maria V. Snyder- Another series that I love and this is the last book. How could I not have read the last book to one of my favourite author’s series? I haven’t been on a huge fantasy kick this year so I’ve put it off but I definitely want to suck it up and get this read in 2011
