2021 Goals

New Year Resolutions

2020 was not it. I think we all get a free pass from our goals because last year was not anyone’s year. However, that is not going to stop me from making goals for this year. I like to make resolutions that I’ll promptly forget by the end of January, but it’s still fun to think of what I did well the year before and what I can improve.

Happy 2019! (I’m back!)

Happy New Years everyone! I hope you guys had a fantastic 2018 and are having a great start to this new year!

I had been very on and off on this platform in 2018, especially where I disappeared in November and December. My goal this year is to post more consistently, but I don’t think I’ll have a set schedule yet. I’m hoping to get at least one post a week in, but I’m aiming for at least two.

For those who have joined me while I was M.I.A., welcome! Sorry I haven’t been here for a while.

As for the reason why I disappeared for the past two months….

A lot of bad things occurred all at the same time to me and my family at the beginning of November, and I just couldn’t handle more responsibility and stress than I already had on my plate at the time. So I had to drop blogging for a while to make sure I could sleep at a decent time and my mental health was stable enough. Frankly, I didn’t have the time to read, so it’s not like I could’ve reviewed many books anyway. On top of all the bad news that we’ve received, I had been working on my next step to my future aka college apps (insert massive, tired groan here). With all that was going on, I wanted to get my college apps out the way as soon as possible, so I dedicated the last couple months to applying to some universities. (Just for the record, no, I do not have a dream school. I would be very happy to be accepted into any of the colleges I’ve applied to.)

It’s the start of 2019, and with a new year comes new resolutions. I already mentioned my goal to post more consistently and another one of my goals for this blog is to have a more positive attitude in my posts. Looking back, I complained a lot. Whether it was about my state of health or everything that was going on, I felt as though I was rather negative. So, starting from this day forward, this blog will (hopefully) be negativity free.

Speaking of state of health, I’ve been getting sick less frequently, which is good. Not saying that I don’t get sick anymore (I was sick just last week), but it’s improving. A personal goal of mine this year is to improve my immune system, because everyone and their mother knows I need to. Wish me luck.

As always, I want to read more books. I read a whopping total of 31 books in 2018 (an all time low), so my goal this year is to read at least 32 books. Baby steps.

Another reading goal of mine is to read most of the books that I own but but haven’t read. Most of them have been sitting on my shelf for over a year now, and I honestly need to get to it because the number of unread books I have is getting ridiculous. One of the first books I plan to read is Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas because I recently finished Tower of Dawn (review coming soon) and I NEED to know what happens next.

Also, I recently had to get rid of a lot of the books I own, because my family will be moving soon and can’t afford to lug around the amount of books I’ve accumulated over the years. Now that I think about it, I can officially make my first un-haul post. Wow, now I’m excited!

Anywho, I hope this post finds you guys in good health and I can’t wait to start this year with a bang!


What are some of your goals for this new year? (bookish or personal)

What was your favorite memory of 2018?


Until next time….


2018 Bookish (and Non-Bookish) Goals

The new year brings new resolutions, and that means it’s time for me to make new goals for myself. I don’t really like calling them resolutions because the definition sounds restrictive.

Just for reference, the definition I read of “resolution” on the internet was this:

a firm decision to do or not to do something

I don’t know about you, but that sounds like an ultimatum to me. It’s like I have to decide whether or not I want to proceed with a certain habit and it will be a life or death decision. In reality, it’s not that big of a deal, but it’s still rather important. That’s why I’m going to refer to my “resolutions” as “goals” instead. It sounds more achievable and more forgiving.

My 2017 Blog Goals

I’ve made it my mission to set some goals for my blog every year. It’s kind of like that saying “there is always room for improvement”. I know my blog isn’t perfect, and I believe that there is always something that I can improve on it. Every year I set goals to (hopefully) make some improvements in hopes to make my blog better than it was the year before. 

I have three goals for my blog next year.

1. Stop rambling!

I tend to ramble on my posts. I also tend to repeat a lot of the things I’ve already said before. I need to stop doing that.

2. Quality over quantity.

I try to post once every two days, and sometimes that goal reduces the quality of what I write. I need to focus more on what I’m writing rather than how much I’m writing. This might mean less frequent posting, however.

3. Keep the blog true to myself.

I started this blog because I wanted to talk about one my of biggest passions: books. I made this blog for myself, and so I want to keep it true to myself. I don’t want to act like someone else. This blog is me, therefore it should portray who I am, imperfections and all.

Happy New Year! Hopefully 2017 will be better than 2016.



How was your 2016?
