What better way to kick off the new year than with a read-a-thon?
If you don't know what Bout of Books is all about here's a little slice of info for you all..
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
Hopefully this will give me a year start kick up the arse into reading!
Who's with me!?
So iv'e been pretty much absent from this blog and much of social media for the past few months, here are my lists of excuses..
1. I smashed my laptop screen. (by accident not out of some crazy hulkish rage)
2. Iv'e been lacking in motivation and inspiration for posts and lost for new ideas so the whole thing became kinda blahh.
3. Iv'e been in a reading slump so i had nothing to blog about! Boooo.
But it's the new year- no it's likely not going to be a new me but I do have a new determination! A determination to blog and read and see if I can make this into what I want it to be. So like i don't do montly tbr's i'm not doing yearly goals because who needs that kind of pressure? Seriously!?
I am however going to attempt to do the #AYEARATHON wooo! Hopefully it will give me reading purpose throughout the year! There's also a lot of other Read-a-Thons i'm hoping to take part it, if your interested you should check out Catriona from the Little Book Owl's video on Read-a-thons happening in 2015 here.
So here's my late wishes from me to all of you hoping you all have a very happy new year and that you get all you wish for in 2015!
