The new year is upon us, and with that, we have to let go of the old.
2016 was an... interesting year. While it had lots of bad, lets take a moment to remember the good.
This year, my university life was absolutely hectic, I had a lot of hard classes and even harder exams, but what I am most proud of, is that I finally learned how to balance blogging/reading with school.
I set some blogging goals for myself last January, and they weren't the best. They were very vague and boring. So I decided to set some new goals for September, and I am very glad I did.
What Were My Goals?
1. Read on the bus
2. Listen to more Audiobooks
3. Schedule posts around exams
4. Be a part of more tours, blitz, and cover reveals
How did I do?
Surprisingly I did fairly well.
While reading on the bus was still challenging (mostly because my bus is super full), I did manage to listen to quite a few audiobooks on the bus, as well as walking my dog. I scheduled posts ahead of time around my midterms and finals so I could focus on my schooling, and I managed to be a part of a lot of more Tours, Blitz and Cover reveals. So I would say, this was a fairly successful year in blogging.
This year I read 45 books, with a total of 15,635 pages.
I completed my Goodreads Reading Challenge, and beat it by 10 books.
I completed the Netgalley & Edelweiss Reading Challenge, and beat it by 9 books.
