I'm a bookworm of the highest caliber! If you see me, I'll probably be reading. There's nothing I love more than finding a good book, and then sharing it with the world!

Reading Goals for 2016

Since I'm not quite ready to do my wrap up for 2015 (there are still books I'm in progress on), I thought I'd share my reading goals for 2016! I always set a few, just to keep me on track. Nothing too confining though. I like my reading freedom.

* Read more short fiction.

This year I discovered that TOR constantly has free fiction online. I finally added them to my Feedly, and I've been immersed in reading it. It's amazing how much some people can do with such few words.

* Tackle the 2016 PopSugar Challenge

I wanted to read out of the box this year, and the one thing that I discovered is that I really need some guidance. Having some categories to bounce off of will help me skinny things down to books that I can actually choose between.

* Clear my NetGalley TBR

This has followed me all year. I got so busy that I stopped reading as quickly as I did before. Alas, I didn't stop requesting. Now I'm living in the back draft of that. I need to catch up, big time. So no requesting anything new in 2016 until I fulfill the promises I've already made.


* Have a year of FANTASY!


It's my goal to read at least one Fantasy book a month next year. I'm taking suggestions! I lost my love of Fantasy somewhere between starting my book blog, and being bogged down with ARC requests. It's time to find that again.


* Discover the Marvel Universe


In 2016 I'm biting the bullet and paying for a year of Marvel Unlimited. Since I've been so obsessed with comics this year, I think it's time to give the capes and tights set another shot. I've heard that Marvel has grown a lot, and I've read a bit of DC too, so it's time to get out there and rediscover it all.


* Listen to more audio books


Sometimes I'm way too tired to read on the train, but I'm never too tired to listen. It's my goal to tackle 3 audio books a month!
