I hope you all had a great year and are looking forward to next year.
I’ve written a review or brief for 10 books in 2017 (listed below in reverse post-date order). Most books were chosen from my local book club’s monthly selections. Since I’ve refocused my blog on novels I’m reading/listening to, I hope to write more reviews in 2018.
My “Top Pick” for 2017 was published in 2010. It was adapted to a movie staring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba released this year (2017). It is the novel: The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin. I liked that it is a story about survival. I heard the movie was good, but very different from the novel.
Below are links to reviews and briefs:
- Read/Listen to more books: While I’ve gone off on different tangents this year, I hope to re-energize and refocus in 2018 by reading or listening to more novels and writing posts about them. I plan to continue to update the look of my blog and newsletter as I go along.
- Walk: I broke out my Fitbit again as I had put it away for 2017. I hope to increase my phyisical activity level. I found it helps to set goals with the Fitbit app. My goal is 10,000 steps /day or 70,000 /week.
- Stay connect with blogging friends.
- Stay up-to-date with blogging and social media trends.
Well, I’ll stop there with my list. I have other goals, but those are my top four related to blogging.
Please feel free to share your top picks or goals in the comments below. I love hearing from everyone.
I will be participating in Sheila’s First Book Of The Year event @ Book Journey. I hope to see you there. Stay tuned for my first book of the year post!
I wish you all a very Happy New Year!
Thanks for stopping by!
