This is just a post to keep people up to date and informed.
I have had a lot going on the past few months. High school is getting a bit tough, just because I decided to torture myself with every advanced course I could take, but I' sure it'll be worth it! Anyway, its just been a bit stressful, but i hope to be a better blogger this year while balancing school and blogging and reading and everything else.
My blogging resolutions this year include:
Posting weekly/a few times a week! Something that I completely failed at last year. I want to have at least one review up each week along with other features. I know I was really bad with doing this last year, but i hope to be better this year!
I want to read review books when I get them! I have review books from as early as May that I still have to review, from authors/publishers. I feel positively horrible that i haven't reviewed everything i have yet. If you are an author or publisher that has been wondering where the heck my review is, it will be up soon, i promise! I hope to finish all my current (or most of my current) review books by late February/early March, along with a lot this month. I am going to make a list in this post just to keep myself on track.

That's 21 books right there! Last year I read only about 45 books, but I hope to read and review at least twice that. I am extremely excited to read all the above listed books, and hopefully i can do it in the next couple months! My reading speeds have been better lately, so hopefully it gets better!
Okay, now here is the good part of this post! This month, i am going to be doing blogiversary giveaways! I know i started blogging about two Septembers ago, back in 2010, but I didn't "really" start blogging until last January, so I've decided January would be the best time to hold the blogiversary! So look out for that, as I am planning on some awesome giveaways!
Anyways, look out this week and next for reviews of Applewood, A Touch Morbid, Hereafter, and Darker Still! I think I am kickin' this year off the right way!
