TGIF at GReads!

It's been a few weeks since I joined in the fun that is TGIF, so I'm happy to be back! The awesomeness that is Ginger (or G, as I like to call her!) over at GReads! has created a great meme that is tons of fun. Each Friday, she poses a question for anyone to answer. Go check her out and join in the fun!

This Friday's Question:

Reading Resolutions:

What are some of your
reading goals for the
new year?

Last year was my first foray into setting an actual reading goal. I used goodreads as a base, and set a goal of reading 50 books in 2011. I am happy to say that I reached and surpassed that goal! This year, I'm sorta thinking "Hey, if it ain't broke"...so I'll once again be setting a goal of reading 50 books this year! 

I know, for some of you 50 books is a cake walk. And I wish I could read 500 books in a year. But being that I have a little thing I like to do on the side (yes, I am a writer), I don't have all the free time that I used to! So, 50 is an attainable goal for me. (As a sidenote, I have writing goals for 2012, but that's for a future post!)

I also plan on filling that goal with many more contemporary YA books this year. Last year, I didn't jump onto the Contemp bandwagon until the end of the year, but those I read (Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door, and everything by Jennifer Echols!) rocked. So, this year I'm going to expand on that streak by reading many more contemps...wish me luck!

What are your reading goals for 2012? Join in the TGIF fun by signing up on Ginger's blog now!
