Book rambler’s first Christmas post

Hello and Merry Christmas to you and your family! I have been ignoring my blog for quite some days and decided to write a post commemorating this blog’s first Christmas.

I don’t celebrate Christmas in a traditional sense, but I do satisfy my appetite with brownies, macarons, chocolate cake, pizza and/or tacos! Besides having delicious food, I also indulge myself by buying books if I don’t get gifted any .

Besides my blog, I am mostly active on Instagram and I have been seeing quite a number of posts asking about 2019 resolutions.

Do I have any resolutions for the upcoming year?

  • I try not to make any plans as they -almost- never go my way but I do plan on finishing up reading and reviewing some physical and digital ARCs I received this year.
  • Increase my follower count of 2.8k to 5k on Instagram which is proving to be difficult so far.
  • Read 110 books and actually record them on Goodreads because I’m terrible at keeping track of all the books I’ve read.
  • Post at least twice a week on my blog.
  • Increase my Netgalley feedback ratio to 100%
  • Get approved on Edelweiss. I still haven’t been approved for a single title on Edelweiss, and that bothered me so much that I have stopped using it now.
Have you made any resolutions for 2019 ?

Since I already mentioned my reading resolutions, here’s a peek at my tentative TBR for the next four days till January 2019 :

First up,my current read, which is

  1. I love your resolutions! I don’t have any resolutions per se but like you I’ve got some bookish goals! I got approved on Edelweiss one time for City of Brass but I surely wanna get approved more! I want to increase my Netgalley feedback ratio too and post more often in my blog. I’ve really been planning out blog posts for January and February! I also want to focus on my writing so yeah! Fingers crossed! Also just followed your blog via email ❤ 🙂
