Happy New Year!! 2016 is here and that means new books to read, along with new resolutions. I've been reading everyone's posts about their plans for blogging and reading in 2016 - talk about inspiring! And I've decided that I'm going to just read, read, read. I'm not going to worry about reviewing every book I read. I'm not going to read THE book that everyone is reading just because everyone is reading it. I'm not going to accept more review books than I can possibly get through (like I did last year). I'm just going to read the unread books sitting on my shelves, the review books that catch my fancy, and the new books that I've been waiting for (The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin, End of Watch by Stephen King, The Last Star by Rick Yancey, The Skeleton Garden by Marty Wingate, Journey to Munich by Jacqueline Winspear, and In Other Words by Jhumpa Lahiri) - Cripes! That's quite a few books, eh? What do you think? Sounds good, right?
As for blogging, I will post at least once a week (or more, depending if I have a review due). I will write about books that I love and hate (because those are the ones that usually get the strongest reaction out of me). I'm not going to worry about the length of my reviews - sometimes short and sweet is just right. I'm not going to stress over my posts. I'm going to just write from the heart.
I want to have fun with blogging and enjoy writing posts again. I want to read more (of everything - classics, nonfiction, mystery, thrillers, horror, etc.) I'm hoping 2016 will be the year that I follow through with my bookish resolutions.
And now I'm off to continue reading my first book of the new year:
