Feature and Follow Friday (5)


Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison can Read. Each week, they ask bloggers a question they respond to in their Feature and Follow post.

I would like to be followed through Networked Blogs, Linky Followers or Google+ Circles. You can find all three of these in the sidebar.

This week’s question is: What New Years Blogging or Writing resolution have you placed on yourself?

Answer: I’ve come up with several resolutions for the New Year. First of all, I’m going to try and read and review 150 Books in 2013. I nearly made it last year, so I’m hoping I get there this time around. Secondly, I want to revamp my reviewing system. The way it’s now, it sometimes takes me several weeks between reading a book and reviewing it, which isn’t ideal. I want to keep this at a week tops. I can’t review a book right away after reading, because I like to think it through first, but still, several weeks is way too long. I want to go back to blogging every day here, and participate in my weekly memes. And most of all, I want to have fun and discovers lots of new, exciting books!

  1. The thing about reviews is also my new years resolution. It takes me so long to write a review between finishing the book that I have a pile of reviews to get through! And I think having fun is one of the most important things. Good luck especially on your 150 goal!

  3. These are great goals! I am only reaching for 100 this year. It takes me about 3 – 4 days usually after reading to review, but I am trying to knock that time down as well. Thank you so much for stopping by my FF and following. I can’t follow through the Google Plus because they still won’t allow me to have a page because they don’t believe my name is my name…I am following through Linky and Twitter now 😀

  6. I can’t take a lot of time before fnishing a book and reviewing. A week is the most I can wait before I completely lose what I wanted to say. Wow, read and review 150 books! That’s impressive. I set a challenge to read 165 (I did 172 this year), but I don’t think I can review all of them too! Following you back via Linky! Thanks for stopping by My FF this week.

  8. Hi, from a new GFC follower.
    Good luck keeping your resolutions this year! 🙂

  9. Old follower, I set 150 as my reading target this year as well, and as for wriiting book reviews I’m so far behind in that, I just haven’t felt in the mood for writing reviews lately.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Yeah, I want to keep having fun blogging. I never imagined I would enjoy it as much as I do.
    I also am hoping to read 150 books this year. When I sign up for the goodreads challenge, I also want to include the picture books I read (I’m a children’s librarian) for work, though, so I usually challenge myself to read between 300-400 books. But of those books, I want 150 of them to be chapter books.
    Good luck on you goals 🙂

  11. 150 is pretty ambitious. I only shot for 85 but got 120 this year so I can’t judge lol.
    Thanks for stopping by! I followed back!

  12. I’m trying to also get my reviews out within a week of reading, because I read quite quickly I find that I’m reading too many books and not writing up enough reviews. I’ve decided to schedule my blog posts/reviews better and I’ve also started taking notes whilst reading so I don’t forget what I want to write in my review.
    All the best in your resolution here’s my Feature & Follow Friday post.
