New Year’s Resolutions/Challenges

1 January, 2017 / 6 Comments


Happy new year everyone!  I kind of (without meaning to) took a month off blogging there.  Oops! December is a busy month!  Anywho, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you all the best in the new year.  Below are my resolutions and challenges for this year!

2017 resolutions:
  • Blog more often and more consistently!
  • Keep my house cleaner.
  • Start and finish (at least) my second draft of the manuscript I wrote for NaNoWriMo in AHEM! 2013.  Seriously.  That’s pathetic.
  • Be the best mom I can be!
  • Be happier overall with life and stress less.
2017 Challenges:

Writing Reviews Challenge hosted by Delighted Reader

I have been reading (though not as much as I used to :() while I haven’t been blogging.  I’m challenging myself to get those reviews written and posted and I challenge myself to review at least one book per week this year.  Therefore, my challenge is to write and post 52 reviews in 2017.

Shelf Love Challenge hosted by Second Run Reviews and Chapter Break

I’m challenging myself to read 11-20 books that I already own.  I own so many that I hope I read more, I’m just not sure how much reading time I’m going to have this year what with going back to work in a couple months and a baby and other responsibilities.  Ugh…  Someday I will read a lot again!

2017 Discussion Challenge hosted by Feed Your Fiction Addiction and It Starts at Midnight

I love this one!  I’m challenging myself to 11-20 discussions.  Ideally, I would like to AT LEAST post one discussion per month.  Again, this all depends, but I’m hopeful!


Share your story: What are your resolutions for this year?  What are you challenging yourself to?

  1. Happy to have you joining shelf love 🙂 Honestly, I believe you. Having a kid and working full time has killed my reading. If it wasn’t for audiobooks on my commute… well I wouldn’t read.
