I decided to join this blog hop to force myself to think about my bookish goals for the next year.
Looking back on my goals when I started this blog in March, one thing I haven’t done is regularly blog about book-related travel. Although I don’t travel as much as I’d like, I’m going to start writing about any book related travels I do make.
I’ve done well at reviewing books by indie authors and have participated in quite a few book tours. In fact, I plan on decreasing the number of book tours I join this year so that I can focus more on books sent by authors and publishers. I’ve also been so busy that I haven’t been reading for pleasure; not that I don’t enjoy most of the books I read to review, but there are classics and popular books I haven’t read because I’ve committed to reading so many newer books. So, at least monthly, I am going to read a classic or other book just because I want to.
My main goal is to continue to find new authors (to me) and share their work with others. I am amazed at how many talented authors there are who are pretty much unknown and I’d like to help change that.
I’m giving away 3 paperbacks that I received over the past year to review: The March of the Toymakers by Julianne Victoria, Not for Profit by Glenn Shepard, The Sea-God at Sunrise by G.L. Tysk.
is this an international giveaway?
I hadn’t thought about that but sure, why not?
Thanks. The Book Depository ships to my country and I have entered your awesome giveaway!!!
These are good goals! I started my book blog in July and I am amazed at all the new authors I’ve been introduced to from being on blog tours or from other bloggers.
I hope you have a Happy New Year and here is my post and giveaway:
