It is that time of year again – time to see how I did with last year’s reading resolutions, and decide what my goals are for 2013. Looking back, I actually did way better than I thought I would, but I had a couple of missteps. My goals for 2012 were to read to read the Mercy Thompson series from Patricia Briggs, which I did (and loved). I also was determined to read Chloe Neill‘s Chicagoland Vampire series, which I also did (and also really enjoyed. Except for the…you know). I also got caught up on Jeaniene Frost‘s Night Huntress series, which is another favorite than I just somehow got behind on. My other resolution was to read every day, even if only a couple of pages. For the most part, I managed it, so I will also call that a win.
On the could have done better side, I had vowed to finish the Character Guide for Lora Leigh‘s Breeds series. Er, well…yeah. Still in progress. I have been working on it, I swear (but I might have taken a few months off). That would be the big failure, for sure.
So, that leads me to my reading goals for 2013, which really read pretty much like the ones for 2012. Here goes…
- I will read, and complete a character guide, for Karen Marie Moning‘s Fever series. Really looking forward to this, even though I have only so far read the first book.
- I will have read whatever books are being adapted into movies before the films come out (Beautiful Creatures, The Host, Hush, Hush, etc). If I don’t do it this way, they will sit on the shelves next to my unread Harry Potter and Twilight books.
- I will learn to cut my losses sooner. No more trying to force myself to like a book that just doesn’t do it for me. Move on, already.
- I will manage to get up to date, and keep up to date, on existing character guides.
- I WILL FINISH THE BREEDS CHARACTER GUIDE. OR ELSE.
Looks like that is about it for me – just a matter of better time management on my part. I am one of those nerd-people who need rules to follow or I slack off. What do you have planned? Did you manage to do what you hoped with in 2012, or did time just sort of slip away from you, too? In case I don’t get to say it before hand, have a happy New Year’s, everyone!
