Both Christmas and New Years ended up being quite quiet – it’s always one way or the other, isn’t it. Either really manic or really calm! Thankfully it allowed me to chip away at a blog redesign, and help me to come up with a few resolutions to keep in mind this year. Last year, I felt everything ‘blog’ took over. While this is brilliant in one sense, it’s not so great in another. I have so many other things I’m passionate about and love doing, and I ended up neglecting all of them quite a bit. This year = BALANCE! (Hopefully, anyway!)
January is also the month I make a promise to shake off a few pounds. (Don’t we all!) This year, I’m making a little change in my resolution – I’m going to forget about what the scales say, and simply start eating a bit healthier. To make it a little harder, I don’t want to give up all the foods I love… so I’m going to try and make them a bit less bad for me! I was contemplating a low carb diet, and I instantly dismissed it. Do you really think I could stay away from bread, pasta, rice, or POTATOES for the rest of my life!? Heck NO! They’re all-round heavenly yummy foods! So, back to the old 1 calorie for you, and 2 calories for you diet. If I make some sort of culinary break through, and I discover a way to make a burger and chips that only add up to a 100 calories, I’ll let you know, LOL!
I didn’t get as much reading done as I’d have liked while I was on a break from blogging, but the books I did read ended up being a mixed bunch. Dangerous Girls was really good – except I knew who the murderer was VERY early on. I guess I’ve read way too many Agatha Christie books over the years or something, *shrugs*. I also read Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and The Dead Girls’ Dance by Rachel Caine, and I really enjoyed both of them. The other books I read… not so much!
2015 has started off really good though. With the redesign taking a good chunk of my attention, I haven’t read that many books yet. But… the three I’ve read I’ve rated 4 stars and above! Maybe 2015 will turn into a quality over quantity year? Who knows!
So far my favourite has been Tunnel Vision by Susan Adrian. I’m so excited to be taking part in the blog tour for its release later on this month, and ohh gosh, I thought it was AWESOME! Can’t say much more right now, but if you like Sci-fi/Paranormal thrillers, you should consider adding it to your wishlist/TBR – I don’t think you’ll regret it!
It arrived this week! Ensnared!! My most anticipated 2015 release and we haven’t even got to the end of January. It’s not much of a surprise that I began reading it once it arrived! So far, I love it. :D But… GAHH! There are two characters I’d love to throttle with my bare hands, and another I’d love to shake some sense into. Thank God for one character in particular. The-character-who-shall-not-be-named-but-forever-adored really has made this series for me.
Oh, and Wonderland! I LOVE this version so much =)
Books I’ve Received/Bought
I’m 99.99999% positive I got a couple more ebooks, but for the life of me I cannot remember what they are! I really do need to check on my Kindle's more often...
