I'm back & 2016 Blogging Goals

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my blog. I must say it has been a while. 
So for those of you that still remember me, last year I took a small break from books. My schooling got in the way, and I ended up not reading for almost half a year. Well now that the new year is starting, why don't we set some new goals and get back to reading!

1. Read while you can!
I'm still in university, and this coming up semester will be extremely hard once again. But I will have a week off in February for Reading Week, as well as two months off between May and June so I will definitely have some time to read this year. Also I'm planning on reading on the bus ride there and back, I have the kindle app on my iPhone so why not read?

2. Don't start challenges you can't complete.
Last year I started many book challenges, and sadly I didn't finish any of them. It was much too hard. So this year, I am only doing the Goodreads Book Challenge, and I have pledged to read 25 books this year. While that doesn't seem like much, last year I only managed to read 21 books with my busy schedule, so hopefully this will work.

3. Have at least one post a week.
Since I won't be reading as much, there won't be as many reviews this year. Which means I've decided to spread them out accordingly. Along with Waiting on Wednesday and other memes, it works out to be around one post a week. I really wish I could post more, but for now thats the best I can do. Let's just hope I can complete this goal for the whole year.

4. Have fun with reading.
Another reason I stopped reading last year, was because I wasn't having fun reading anymore. I was reviewing so many books for publishers that I didn't get to read the books I really wanted to read, and it almost turned into a job rather than a pleasure. So this year, I won't be requesting books unless I find them really interesting, and definitely read some older books that I've been dying to read for ages.


Thanks again for stopping by. I've honestly missed blogging and reading so much! I missed the friends I made through blogging and I absolutely can't wait to get back into it. 
Happy New Year everyone, and good luck to your own personal challenges

  1. I've been reviewing a lot of books lately too and I've decided that I really want to work on my own personal TBR this year. Good luck with your goals.

  3. Haha, number 2 is definitely a goal for me! After two years of signing up to challenges that I never complete I've decided I'm better off not doing any challenges :) I hope you have a great 2016, Aneta, and good luck with your goals!

  4. I love these goals! We as bloggers sometimes put to much pressure on ourselves and burn out. I parred down my challenges this year as well.

  5. Awesome goals, Anita, and great to see you back! I've decided to skip challenges this year, too. The only one I'm definitely taking part in is the Goodreads challenge. I might try a couple of read-a-thons, or shorter challenges throughout the year (depending on free time and my reading mood when they're running :)) Best of luck with all your goals!
