Question of This Week
Resolutions: Put together your blogger resolution list for all of us to see!

1. Post regularly - I'm new to all this, so I'm still trying to get the hang of things. I think two to three times a week sounds like the norm? Whatever it is, cheers to an amazing 2014!

 2. Review books outside of my comfort zone - To be honest, I would like to read things I won't normally read. Like, horror maybe. But I'm a big wuss - I couldn't sleep for weeks after watching the Conjuring, and that wasn't even THAT scary!

 3. Blog about my writing... only sometimes - I originally thought I'd blog more about my writing and less about book reviews, but then I got scared. Well, you know what, internet world? I'm doing it!

Clearly, you can tell who my favorite Vampire Diaries character is (excluding Damon). And no, it's definitely NOT Elena! But I still have to catch up on Season 5! D:


  1. Hopping through. I'd like to read outside of my comfort zone too. A greater variety of books.

  2. I'm also scared about doing posts about my writing. Don't know why, but I feel like I'm either going to jinx myself or come off as either too pathetic (when I'm struggling) or too confident (when I feel like I'm doing pretty well). I'd like to start doing more posts on writing, though. Good luck with you goals!!!

  3. Oh wow! I'm a newbie blogger as well, except I've only been blogging a week! It's hard to get the hang of things, but I'm working on it! I did't realize how time consuming blogging could be! I love your blog layout though! I followed you via gfc! :)

  5. I don't read outside my comfort zone, like ever. I am too addicted to paranormal books but am willing to read any level of paranormal, be it Urban Fantasy or a mystery with just a few paranormal elements.

    Good luck!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

  10. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog Fantastical Paper Realm, I followed you back! I'm trying to get the guts to do more writing stuff with my blog too... it's so scary!!

  11. I loved your answers this week! Cute pics and gifs too:) I love YA fiction..

  12. Great answer this week! I am a new follower via GFC! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  13. I'm not a "read outside my comfort zone" kinda person. I enjoy YA fantasy and the most outside reading of that I've done is I am currently reading a NA fantasy. haha! Like you I am trying to post more and it be things that my followers would be interested in.
    Thanks for stopping by! I'm a new follower!

  14. Great resolutions. Reading outside your comfort zone can be difficult - good luck with it :0)
    Thanks for stopping by the Harem.
    New GFC follower :0)

  15. I LOVE the videos!!! A wonderful creative post. You said you were better than I am about putting away a bad novel and not feeling obliged to finish... I swear to not do that in 2014. Unless, it is so bad it's funny. Now with a series you are correct... I would dig in and keep going. New GFC Follower. Best wishes, Shannon

  16. I think reading a wide variety of genres helps me to not get burnt out on reading. Some great goals. Thanks for visiting. I'm following via Feedly...

  17. Fantastic blog, great resolutions! I read outside my comfort zone just to keep things fresh!

  18. Great Resolutions! But even better gifs of Nina as Elena!!
    Have a good weekend!
    Old follower stopping by!

  19. Returning your GFC follow! Great goals. I think 2-3 times a week is a good amount. Now, about reading books that are not in your comfort zone. Just be careful that you do enjoy them. I find there are too many books I enjoy to waste time reading books I don't like. So keep that in mind!

  20. Thanks for stopping by earlier. I'm following ya back now :D And I love TVD, but my favorite character would have to be Klaus. *sigh* I need to watch his spin-off show soon ;p

    Happy 2014!
