Feature and Follow Friday #3


Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.

Q: What New Years Blogging or Writing resolution have you placed on yourself?

I'm going to read more books. Last year I was focused on other endeavours and read very few books as my TBR pile kept growing taller. At the start of the year I had challenged myself on Goodreads to read 30 books in 2012 and I only managed about 9. This year I've set a more realistic goal of 15.

I also want to write more book reviews. In particular I need to make more of an effort to write a review whilst the book is still fresh in my mind. Too often I put off writing it because I'd rather dive into the next book in my TBR pile. As a result I have felt that I can no longer do the book justice in a review because I can no longer recall all the details.

So in 2013 there will be more books and more timely reviews.

Thanks for stopping by.  If you're a new follower, please leave me a link to your blog in the comments below so that I can say hello!

  1. Yes, if you couldn't manage 30 books last year, 15 is a reasonable and real goal! I wish you lots of success this time!

  2. i'm in the same boat as you regarding my goodreads challenge of 2012. so i changed my goal to read one more book than i did last year (which would be like 15 books for 2013 -- much more reasonable!).

    happy friday!

    1. Good plan, 1 extra book is much more reasonable.

      I like the 101 in 1001 list you have on your blog, how did you come up with that?

      Thanks for visiting.

  4. Good goals ~ I find that if I wait too long to write a review I forget too many of the little details...I either have to take notes while reading, which is lame or write the review right away.

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one :-) I don't like to take notes either, I'd rather get lost in the story,

  8. Reading more is ALWAYS a good goal. The other day I realized I needed to start the goodreads challenge ALL over again & was like "OH NO"
