New Year, New Goals!

Last year I tried something new by setting new year goals rather than New Years Resolutions. Turns out that worked much better for me!

The two really big ones I shared here on my blog were to read 40 books in 2016 and to write more. I did accomplish both of these with the addition of improving my lifestyle (being healthier; drink more water, eat less junk food, loose weight, exercise more).

#ReadThemAllThon Revenge Of The Witch Review

I’ve finished my first book for the #ReadThemAllThon! Revenge of the Witch was a really quick read for me, and about half way through it dawned on me that the story sounded so familiar because I had seen the movie. I didn’t care for the movie much, but it was alright. Which is what this book was.

Geekery of the Month: PokemonGo

This month I’m starting quite a few new series, this is the first. A monthly geekery wishlist of whatever it is I’m into at the moment. Since I just started the #ReadThemAllThon and I’m still obsessed with PokemonGo I’m choosing Pokemon! Etsy is one of my favorite places on the internet for shopping. There is so many creative, talented individuals and I’m so glad I can support some of them!

Reading Challenge 2016

While I was scrolling through tumblr I saw a post from readsthebooks of a challenge for 2016, so I’m putting the images here, so I can refer to it through out the year. Check out readsthebooks for more book/reading inspiration.

I’m currently picking out what books I plan on reading in 2016 over on good reads. These will be books in addition to the books, comics, and graphic novels that the respective Iggles pick each month.

So far my list is as follows:

  • Station Eleven by Emily Mandel
  • The Assassin’s Blade (Throne of Glass) by Sarah J. Maas
  • The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle #1) by Patrick Rothfuss
  • The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
  • Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
  • The Way of Kings Part 1 by Brandon Sanderson
  • The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
  • An Ember in the Ashes by Sabba Tahir
  • Starwars: Aftermath by Chuck Wendig
  • Dragon Age: Magekiller Vol. 1
  • I Hate Fairyland #1 by Skottie Young
  • I Hate Fairyland #2  by Skottie Young
  • I Hate Fairyland #3 by Skottie Young
  • I Hate Fairyland #4 by Skottie Young
  • I Hate Fairyland #5 by Skottie Young

My goal last year was to read 20 books, and I read 29, so I think this year I’ll try for 40? I did most of my reading late August through December, so that seems plausible especially with comic books and graphic novels.
