December 29, 2016 Blog Updates & Misc 2

Outwithold 2016
Michelle @ Because Reading & I are recapping 2016 and looking ahead to 2017. Feel free to join us. I’ve been busy enjoying a blog break and transferring the blog to a new sever, so I’m reviewing the year in quarters instead of monthly, which Michelle has been doing.

Out With The Old: Q1 2016

Some Quick Facts:

  • Books Read: 8 (Jan) + 8 (Feb) + 6 (Mar) = 22
  • Books Reviewed (on the blog): 5 (total, all three months!)
  • Favorite Book Read: I read several good books this quarter. I finished my Calendar Girl binge, read the first 2 books in the Stone Cold Elements series, and read the much anticipated and long waited for Grave Visions by Kalayna Price. But my favorite read brought me back to a favorite character, Shelby, in Devious Minds by Colleen Helme

2016 was a fairly rough year for me and blogging and these three months really show that. It was the new job at a difficult school keeping me from having the time or energy. I tried to do the book of the year and I never managed to finish – it was just too much! Over these three months I only had 5 reviews and there was a total of 29 posts! I never completely disappeared though – my Sunday Posts were fairly consistent – because this community kept me going through my difficult school year.

Thankfully things have been going much better and I think we’ll see a lot more of my blog in 2017. I’m not setting specific goals this year, but I would like to try and do the book of the year brackets 🙂

    I don’t know how I’d feel looking at my quarter like this. :/ You got off to a rough start reading/blogging-wise, but you were balancing quite a bit. I’d be proud. 😉

    Sorry I’m just now reading these…I kinda took a week off. It’s been so fun having all the kids here and listening to them enjoy being together. I hope your holiday break has been grand! {{{hugs}}}
