My New Years Reading/Bookish Resolutions
- Make my TBR pile smaller!! This is my TBR stack at present:
Plus the titles on my Kindle not yet read, and add in all the 2011 releases I'm after (Amazon wishlist of them currently 80+), plus any extra review titles and all the other 2011 releases I'll want that aren't listed/on my radar yet...you get the idea O_O
- Buy fewer books!! Okay, with all the awesome sounding books coming out this year, this could well be tricky, but I want that TBR pile under control, and if I just keep buying more books, that won't happen!! Also, I really can't afford it. I was so broke in 2010 cause I just kept buying books. And then they'd sit there for weeks or months untouched (not always, obviously, but still). And I need to stop buying double copies just for prettier covers or whatever as well!!
- Learn to not force myself to finish a book I'm not enjoying - I'm not good at DNF's. I keep reading because I always think a book/series should be finished once it's started. I will drop a series if it gets too bad, but mostly I just keep going and it's stupid cause really, there are too many other books out there I could be reading and loving!
- Schedule reviews - I tend to just write a review and post it, but this is something that's not working for me now, health wise, because it's not giving me the flexibility (or letting me feel like I've got the flexibility) to do what I need to to take care of me some times. I'm sometimes forcing myself to write reviews (or other posts) because I think I need the content when really I should be resting. So I want to stay ahead of myself and have reviews/posts scheduled so that when I do have bad days/weeks (and there were a LOT in 2010) I don't feel like I need to do anything more than spend the day in bed resting.
I'm offering a copy/pre-order of one of the following 2011 debuts (all of which I've read and loved) to one winner!

Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
