Hello 2012

Starting a New Year is so much fun. So many days in which to read books! And the resolutions to make: How many books will I read in 2012? How many challenges will I take part in? or, What are my blogging plans for the upcoming year? Well, this is that post....

So, my resolutions for 2012. Here it goes:

1. Prepare back-up posts: Since I've given my exams I've been much more free and have been working regularly on my blog; but what I have realized is that some days I just can't post - sometimes I don't read anything for a week and prepare no posts. For this reason it is better to prepare posts when I am free as a back-up for later days.

2. Read whenever I can: Since starting this new job I haven't been able to manage my time so efficiently yet. I come home tired and decide not to read and instead watch TV! This has to stop!

3. Make a list of books to read: Let me start now!
  • Middlemarch
  • Anna Karenina
  • War and Peace
  • Rhett Butler's People
  • The East of Eden
  • Divergent
  • The Outlander series
  • The Sword of Truth series
  • The Secret Circle series
  • The Count of Monte Cristo.......
OK, so the list is too long. Moving on;

4. Join more than two challenges: I've already joined four! :D

5. Push myself out of my comfort zone: For this I did No. 4 and started my own My Blind Date with a Book feature.

Hmmm.......what will be my first read of 2012? With the movie on The Hobbit coming out, I think I'll read the book first.

Hi, I found your site through reddit and glad I did! I like the look of your reading list for 2012. I'm also planning a re-read of The Hobbit later on this year before the film comes out.

I'd just like to say, I love your film page! I completely agree with what you say about Gone with the Wind and Pride and Prejudice (I also didn't think much of Keira Knightley).

Hi! I 'm so glad you visited and liked my site. I've finished The Hobbit and will post a review soon.

So few people agree with me about Gone Wit the Wind! I just wish they'd make another film :)
