Hello, again! I hope you all had a good weekend and you’re ready to kickstart the new year into high gear. I know I am. Here’s what’s happening this month at The Bookshelf Corner:
Eyes on the Prize: 2022 Bookish Goals
Hello, 2022! There are several goals I want to accomplish this year, but today I’ll just focus on the ones of the bookish variety. I want to:
- Visit the library regularly
- Be a more active blogger
- Donate books I’m no longer interested in reading
- Reduce the number of unread owned books on my shelves
- Read more back-listed titles
- Finish the first draft of WIP
- Participate NaNoWriMo for the first time
- Read and/or acquire my very most anticipated 2022 releases
- Buy more books
The 2022 Reading Challenge I Almost Got Carried Away With
Feeling energized after last year’s success I was toying with the idea of challenging myself to read 200 books this year, but at the last minute decided 150 is more reasonable given my overall 2022 plans.
I don’t have a tbr for this month – there are certain books I should really get done this month, but for the most part I’m just continuing with the winter tbr and going with the flow.
To start the new year, I’m currently reading Bend Toward the Sun by Jen Devon and Starlight by Olivia Wildenstein. The former I’m hoping to finish this week. The latter is around 600 pages so that’ll be a month long read unless I totally becomes unputdownable (which is 100% likely).
Rebranding the Blog for a Better Experience
Lately, I’ve been working on major rebranding for the blog. Some changes have already begun to be implemented, but there are still additional things to figure out, such as choosing a fresh, more modern theme, changing my approach to writing posts, creating a new logo, and designing for accessibility. More on that later once it’s all complete.
Have a great first full week of 2022!
