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

This may sound crazy, but I haven't put any blogging or writing resolutions on myself this year. Now reading resolutions, I've a bunch of those. The main one I can think of is to try to fit in a "fun book" a month. This is a book I pick solely for myself to read for fun, instead of it being a book I need to read for a deadline, a tour, or a review. 
And, as bad as I am with resolutions, I still haven't picked out this month's fun book. I do have a Beautiful Creatures tour coming up, and I did want to read that, but again....not technically a "fun book".

  2. Interesting resolution choice! All the books I read are ones I want to read anyway. But I guess you get a lot of review books?

    Good Luck!

  3. For myself this month, I am trying to read The Hollows series again before the new one comes out. I'm not sure I will be able to do it. I think this is an excellent goal - good luck with it. Here is my FF. Old Follower :D

    1. Rachel, I tried to comment on your blog but the comment field is too little to see the CAPTCHA image, or to ask it to reload. You can't see the field at all. But I did want to comment, and I did a return follow on GFC.
