2017 Bookish Resolutions

First and foremost I’ll take a look back to what Goodreads said I did during 2016.

33 books total recorded on Goodreads.
11722 pages read total.
11/33 books were rated 5 stars.
Only 2 books were recorded DNF…although there are probably more that I just didn’t bother putting in the shelf…

Anyways, I’d say it was definitely a good year book-wise and hopefully this one will be better yet. My reading goal is set at 55 books, but going over it would be so much better of course.

I’m hoping of course that most of these books will be a four star or higher, but I guess that will just be up to the books.

Otherwise the greatest plan I have? Read all of those books I have sitting on my shelf that haven’t been read or finished. Yikes…so about 10 plus books? Not to mention the two new hardcovers I just bought ’cause they were on sale. So there goes about a fifth of my reading challenge already! I hope.bugsbunnygif

Farewell 2016 – I Won’t Miss You

I guess a look back on 2016 isn’t too bad an idea though for good measures of being a good blogger.   Continue reading “Farewell 2016 – I Won’t Miss You”

A Letter To Me In June 2017

Dear future Shayla – June 2017 (to be specific),

I realize this is going to be interesting to read when the time comes. It’s funny how time works because nearly a year from now seems like a long time. But I know it’s going to go by in the blink of an eye. And we’re probably going to be sitting there at the end of it all not knowing what hit us.  Continue reading “A Letter To Me In June 2017”
