So first off I want to give a big thanks to the lovely Jenn at Sapphire Designs for creating some awesome feature buttons to use at Tinasbookreviews. The first is for my new feature Saturday Spotlight, a weekly feature that highlights an author, their book and occasional giveaway. This will run weekly and hopefully will be a great way for authors to introduce themselves to bloggers.
The second feature is a bi-weekly (or whenever Im in the mood) event called Shelf Cravings and was inspired by the countless number of meme's out there that focus on new release books. I wanted to have my own to share books Im looking forward to, books I want to read or books that I have just discovered. Sometimes a great book gets overlooked and a little hype might gain some new readers for that author.
Im still working on the mother/daughter review thing....we just haven't read the same book yet that I haven't already reviewed.......and with me reading so many review books and C with school stuff, we don't have time....someday we will do this!! Aren't those buttons great....to have your own made go visit Jenn at her blog Sapphire Designs.
My Resolutions for 2011
Ok so besides a spending budget to pay off my car and shedding 20 pounds my book goals include:
Read 150 books for 2011 and complete all challenges..
Read the entire Harry Potter Series
Which btw I joined two more....Parajunkee's Vampire Challenge and Book Soulmates Zombie Challenge...(I had to get a few monsters in there.....)
~Comment more on the blogs I love
~Become more picky in review books, not taking on everything, only books Ill actually read
~Have more contests and giveaways.
Well those are my main goals this year, Im hoping in 2012 Ill be walking faster, doing more than 2 push-ups, have no car payment and be able to say yeah I read those Harry books............
So, what are your reading and personal goals this year?
