Happy New Year!

Hey, guys!

I'm looking at the time, and it's already been nearly a half hour since 2013 officially started.  I just wanted to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!  I hope it brings you happiness, prosperity, and of course loads of amazing books. ;D

I've been thinking about New Year's Resolutions, and usually I don't make them - except last year I think I resolved to be more organised...which, of course, didn't exactly happen.  I think I just got lazier.  But I figured this year would be a good one to actually make a couple in light of the blog.  So.  Here they are.

  1. Post moreWhile I do have school and this year is insane, I really don't want to see this blog continue to suffer.  Even if it's just mini reviews and promos, that would be better than not doing anything (I hope you guys will forgive me if that really is most of what would be posted lol).  Also, I'm going to try and be better at remembering my WoW posts.  Every Wednesday I walk into school and my friend asks me if I put it up and I just go, 'Um.  No.  Oh my God, it's Wednesday!' Yeah, my memory isn't what you'd call brilliant and as you can see, I tend to lose my mind.
  2. Be more organised Yes, this again.  I'm determined to beat the laziness, when it comes to both the blog and my studies.  I'm going to try and schedule posts so that the blog isn't empty for too long  I've found in the past that scheduling posts has made things much easier so I'm going to try and do that more often.  In terms of school, I think a lot of it is just to do with the fact that I'm exhausted by all the work and don't really have it in me to keep it up all the time, but I need to keep my motivation.  Exams are coming soon and if I fail, it'll only be my own fault.  So I'm going to work harder and be more focused! (That sounded way too peppy.)
  3. Comment moreThis also ties in with the laziness thing.  I plan on reading more blogs and leave more comments, showing my undying love for all the other amazing bloggers out there.  It should hopefully also bring more readers over here.
  4. Catch up with my review copiesSeriously, I have so many review books to read and the poor publishers will probably never allow me anything again.  So I'm going to do that as soon as possible and then make sure I don't go into overload with them again over the next few months.  Of course, when exams are over then it'll be fine 'cause I can read non-stop. ;)
So those are my resolutions for this year.  I'm just hoping I can sustain them at least until August/September, at which point things might change a little.  More on that in a few months.

Do you have any New Year's resolutions, bloggy or otherwise?  Let me know!  And again, wishing you all a fantastic new year. :)


  1. I definitely have a loong list of bookish New Years Resolutions, and most of them are similar to yours! My number one is consistency. I want to post more, like you, even if it's only mini-reviews! I also want to comment more. I do great at commenting during breaks, but when school starts up again, I always stop. But I think if I use my time wisely, I'll be able to comment and keep up with school. I also totally need to catch up with review copies, especially from NetGalley! Those poor publishers. ;)

    Fantastic goals, Aa'Ishah! I wish you the best of luck with them. <3

  2. Wow, you have a look on your plate, Aa'Ishah! Good luck with your goals. I think you're doing a wonderful job already. :)

  3. Can I borrow this New Year's Resolutions? Haha! Seriously, I was thinking of doing exactly all these things too now that another year has started but I'm not sure if I'd be able to really do them. But I'd be trying. Good luck with all your goals, A. I know we can do this. Lol! :D

  4. Oh yeah, I pretty have the same resolutions as you in terms of reading/reviewing and blogging! I need to be more timely and committed to commenting, post more and read more books (especially ARCs). I'm generally good with writing reviews and I'm organised, but a HUGE procrastinator!

    Good luck on achieving all your goals and happy New Year, love! :) I know you can do it ;)

  5. Happy New Year Aa'Ishah! I totally would love to stick to the resolutions you made, but it's so hard, especially arc-wise, I definitely think that I need to go on a NetGalley/Edelweiss ban once in a while! Good luck with your resolutions! :)

  6. Happy New Year! I like your resolutions! I've never been one to make resolutions because I don't think I would keeo up with them. But I like to read about others. I wish you luck with them :). I really like your blog name, it's really cute! New follower :)
