The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~
~ It’s a chance to share news~
A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
There were so many great books this year! I did not even get to many that I wanted to! I am just shy of 250 read but I think I’m going to revise my goals for next year. I’m hoping to read more for myself and authors and less for tours. I missed out on so many books that I wanted to read because my schedule was chock full of way too many books already. Plus my schedule this past year was just too much with school. So, for 2015 I’m committing to just a few things…
- Horror Mondays!
- Terry Pratchett Tuesdays
- Moment of Zen Wednesday
- Cat Thursday
And that is it! This way I’ll be able to actually read books I want to read, not just those I’ve obligated myself to read! Amazing!!! (I hope).

What I enjoyed about this year and what I would change:
The Horror Monday thing I absolutely love! I read and watch so much horror that I’m already into February for next year. I went to B&N a year or so ago and noticed that they really do not have much of a horror section. Pun intended, I was horrified! It made me worry about the authors that are in that genre. I love horror and I would hate to see it fade away. I read so much though that I thought having a specific day just for it would be perfect. Plus would help those that do NOT want to read about horror.
Also, Zen Wednesdays. It’s an easy post but looking back I’ve been able to share things that really do bring me a feeling of zen. I just hope that it brings you zen too!
As for what I would change… I’m introverted and I really need to stick my neck out there more. It’s hard for me but it’s hard for anybody! I want to start making and hitting goals for each week on visiting and commenting on other blogs and really getting out into the world. I love meeting people it’s just always been a bit hard for me to keep in touch. So between cyberspace and in the real world, it’s time to start doing just that. I’m going to hold myself to committing to other people and meeting more people every week!
That’s it for me this year. What are your plans for next year? Are there things you did or did not do or things you want to change for 2015?
