Bookish Resolutions 2018 Goal Post




So I didn't do very well in 2017, so I'm keeping things a lot simpler: 
  1. Read at least 2 books a month for no other reason than I want to (yes, two. Yes, I remember the days that was two a day too. *Sigh*) 
  2. Write an average of 3000 words a day. 
  3. Re-read Harry Potter 
Yes, they're random, but why not!

 It’s time for a brand new challenge for the New Year: 2018 Bookish Resolutions Challenge We are going back to basics! We thought we made it too complicated last time, so this time we are going back to the beginning. If it’s Bookish it counts, however we are no longer allowing personal goals since this is a bookish challenge, it’s all about the book world.

 Sign Up is between 8th December and 28th February, the challenge starts January 1st and ends December 31st 2018 Bookish Resolutions Challenge is about setting New Years Resolutions for books and book blogging…You can sign up via blog post, Facebook, Twitter or Goodreads!

 2. Create a sign up post and add it to the Linky on this post (sign up before Feb 1st)

 3. This is a year long challenge, so you can't add resolutions that could be done in a day these must be year long goals.

 4. Twice a year we will have an update to see how you are doing. One in April and One on August. The last update will be the end post in December for you to link up. You will find the link on both mine and Laura’s blog

 5. For each goal you complete you get one entry into the giveaway that will be in our wrap up post on December 31, 2015

Giveaway:

We'll be giving away two $5 Amazon gift cards at the end of December 2018. You get one entry per resolution (via a Rafflecopter form)

Fractured Fate by Cece Rose

d

***This is part one of a serial release. Approx. 12,000 words.***


Selena's world is turned upside down when she meets a mysterious man in a London nightclub. He’s a man with secrets, a man with enemies.


As the tangled web of secrets and lies begins to unfold, Lena needs to make a choice, but what’s a girl to choose when she knows that what she wants is wrong?


And him? He knows what he wants, and he’s going to do whatever it takes to get her, right or wrong be damned.


But Lena fracturing fate itself, driving it from the original path, wasn't a part his plan. 


*Serial may contain possible triggers.

2017 Bookish Resolutions - June Round Up Post

Bookish Resolutions 2017

This one is the challenge I host alongside Michelle @ because reading, and let's face it, it's also the one that I do the worst on! I think it *could* be because I'm too hard on myself, but we'll see! Click here to sign up! (Don't forget you set your own goals in this one!)

Don't forget to join the FB group here!

Reading Goals

  1. Get my Netgalley rating up to (at least) 50%...let's just say I'm not as far away as I was fro this, but it's still going to mean a lot of Netgalley books!
    - I have a Netgalley rating?! Oops. 
  2. Read 5 books a month that were on my Kindle at the beginning of the year
    -  Let's not talk about this
  3. Read 1 Paperback a month (may sound like a small challenge, but trust me, this one is massive for me! I'm not very good at reading paperbacks anymore!)
     - Pretty sure I should just give up on this one
Blogging Goals
  1. Write posts in advance! Meaning sooner than the night before...
    - Erm.......................
  2. Visit other blogs at least once a week (not that I did well at this one last year, but maybe it is doable if I keep going!)
    - .............................
  3. Create (and keep up to date) a 2017 Review schedule including costs and ratings
    - ................Stop asking me difficult questions!
Writing Goals (< FYI this section is new this year!) 
  1. Finish 5 first drafts (setting the bar high on this one!) whether new stuff or WIP!
    - Good news, I've actually definitely done this one! I can't actually quite remember how many I've finished, but it might now be in double figures
  2. Publish 3 books (again, setting the bar a bit high, but I need the motivation!)
    - So writing took over my life and I've now published 9 titles solo, and 1 multi-author title, with more of both on the way! 
  3. Join NaNoWrMo again! (I finished it by the skin of my teeth in 2016, so we'll make this goal also to finish before the 30th and not on the 30th!)
    - Can't complete this one yet! I did try to do Camp NaNo, but it didn't go so well. 
FYI, I'm skipping the personal goal this year! I just can't think of anything and previously I've used that to put a writing goal in...which I don't need anymore! 


How've you guys done these past two months? Hopefully better than I did! Let us know! 


Link up here so we can see how you are doing with your bookish resolutions!
