{memes} Top Bookish Resolutions, Angry Letters & New Reads!

I wanted to meme. And only had one weekly post to do it. So there's a whole lotta memeage happening in this post. You might have to scroll down a bit to get the one you're looking for. 😸

It's been cold. Then hot. Then cold. Then warm. And cold and cold and hot. The herd is over it. lol I don't know if I'm grabbing flipflops or winter jackets. Ah!

I've been getting a TON done around the house, though, and doing some couponing during an event that ends today. Here's my final. I bought 259 items. Value of them: $830.70. I paid $55.66 in store. Then got money back from rebate apps and wound up getting PAID 10.23 to bring this home. A good bit is going to be donated. The veggies, vegan/vegetarian and cleaning items will stay put though.

Not much else really. Just house stuff that's keeping me busy and offline a lot this week. I'll be doing catch up visits with everyone this weekend.

For Review
Just the one. And no purchased books either. I went light this week!

Read This Week
Only two! Yikes! I've been reading a TON but this week life was really busy and reading took a backseat it seems. I did enjoy Death Below Stairs, though! The Wedding Band...was a serious struggle. I did NOT like the heroine and there was just a lot of weird writing choices. 


Currently Reading
I LOVE this series. This one it's taking me a little while to settle in but I'm not hating it. Yummy cover but so weird since...he's not a cowboy and it doesn't take place in Texas. But, sure. lol

Top Ten: Bookish Resolutions/Goals

Oh, yall. I have big plans for 2018 and my reader-life. So many plans. *rubs hands together* I'm really excited about them, too! So here they are...

Get my Netgalley to 100%! I'm SO close! Starting the year at 97% with 10 book titles to go. Yay for the Blogger Shame Challenge making this happen!

Clean up my Edelweiss account-- 4 books to go! (now 3)

Blog Ahead-- I'm HUGE on this. It's saved the blog numerous times over the last few years. I'll be hosting 3 of these in 2018...hopefully.

Review as I read. I've got to get better at this. I did a lot of re-reading in 2017 because I thought I finished a rough draft review, opened the file weeks later and, erm, found one sentence. Erms. 

Read 30 new authors-- I'm doing the Try Something New challenge!

Blog All About It-- I'm excited for this challenge and spreading my blogging wings

Put together the bookshelves I've had sitting in boxes for a year now. And reorganize ALL of my books into them.

Start working on the print review consideration books I've received over the last 6 years some of them. Now that my NG is nearly caught up on this is my pile of focus. There are probably 120 on it. 

Posting books to Instagram again. I got off doing this when my eyes went bad on me for a few months and I wasn't reading.

Read 150 books 

Question: Have you ever thought of writing a respectful, but angry letter to an author to ask them WHY they killed off one of your favorite characters in a novel? 
A: Nope! Because almost every time it's happened at that point I'm done with that author. I've had a couple who have lost me as a reader because of that. A couple have managed to pull it off but it's rare and usually not a main character but a side one.
