This is my fourth year blogging and I have decided to make 2013 the year I read what I want to read.....
What does this mean for the blog, no challenges but other than that nothing. I am a mood reader and most times do not choose what I am going to read until I have finished with one book. This works for me and never causes reading slumps.
I will still review ARC's or accept review books BUT only if I am really intrigued or have read the author before. As Thriller, Suspense, Crime and Mystery are my favourite genres, I will be open to trying a debut author or new to me author in those genres.
Since blogging I have averaged reading 50 books. I put it up to 52 and only read 48 last year. I realised though I want quality books not quantity, that is what works for me so I will stick with 50 and know it will be approximate, which is ok with me.
It took all December until now to confirm my decision with myself first but this is what is best. I will not be hosting I Want More Challenge and Queen of Suspense (Mary Higgins Clark) but will continue the Serial Killer Reading "Challenge". That is not a challenge but just a place to share the Serial Killer reads in order to have a go to list. I will work on that this week and get the linky and button up.
Happy 2013, enjoy adding all the amazing books to your Wishlist, TBR list and overflowing shelves. Good luck to those that love the challenges and to the addicted, you know who you are. I think you are addicted to the challenges just as much as the books. (smile)
If I take John Burroughs advice I may even find more time for my family, career, exercise and friends, but of course on the side is always a cup of Earl Grey tea and a book or the Kindle.
