My New Year's Blogging Resolutions

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

It's been 1 year since I started Watcha Reading and yet I feel like I'm still new at this. I feel like I need to be more organized. This year was crazy for me especially at the start of the year.

I decided to make some goals for 2015 so that I know what I want to do because this year just felt off for me and my blogging. In some ways, I am still new so hopefully this list will help.

2015 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

Sunday, December 28, 2014
"We all have those books. We buy them, win them, they're gifted to us. Then we put them up on a bookshelf and there they stay, collecting dust, waiting for the time when we'll finally decide to pick them up."

This is my first time doing this. I wanted to do the 2014 challenge but it was already ending so I saw no point. But this will be perfect because I have so many books that I've been wanting to read. My TBR is piling up and I want to get as much done as possible since I graduated high school. It will keep me busy while I look for a job so I should have loads of time to read.

The beginning of this year was really stressful as my time as a student was ending and I was applying for colleges. And so far I have only read 35 books this year. But I'm aiming to go high for the year of 2015. I want to go past 100 but for now I'll leave it at around 41-50 books and see how it goes.

The Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Release Date: February 17th, 2015
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Format: ARC, 335 pages
Series: Titans, #1

Summary from Goodreads:
The Fates are cackling their bony asses off… 
It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet. 
Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after
