2015 Bookish Resolutions Challenge Update ~ May

Bookish Resolution Challenge


Laura @Trips Down Imagination Lane and Michelle @Because Reading are the lovely hosts of this challenge. You can click the button above for all the details.

***

My 2015 Bookish Resolutions are:

  • Improve my Netgalley Rating (started at 15.2%)
  • Listen to one audio book per quarter.
  • Write more discussion posts and/or create some fun features for my blog.

***


I once again made solid progress on ALL THREE of my resolutions this month! In fact, I completed one of my challenges. Yay me! ;) 

I added another review to Netgalley so my rating is now at 17.2%. I will continue to work at this so I can get my rating up! I didn't do so well with Kimba's Clean Sweep Challenge, but I'll keep plugging away to improve my rating. 

The audio book portion of my resolutions challenge is FINISHED! I finished Highlander Most Wanted by Maya Banks and Primal Law by JD Tyler, both of which were narrated by Kirsten Potter. I picked Primal Law since it'd been on my TBR since 2009 or 2010 and it was a test to see what I thought of KPotter doing something other than a Scottish accent. Although I loved Potter's narration and enjoyed the story, Primal Law didn't do it for me like Banks' books. I'm not going to stop listening to audio though. I'm now listening to Ever After by Kim Harrison, narrated by Marguerite Gavin, and am enjoying it!

As for discussion posts/fun features, I continued posting my monthly Travel by the Book post as well as my Beyond the Books posts. And I've also continued my Brandee's Bookish Babble posts.


I'm really happy with all I've accomplished so far this year. Who knew that all it'd take was a challenge?!? ;) How did y'all do in May?

  1. Oh that's great you made solid progress for all your goals and yay for completing one of them! I also have completed one goal and now hoping to reach the double amount of books for that. Sometimes it really helps to do a challenge for something to get more achieved. My challenge really helped to keep me keep more focussed on the goals I set and trying to keep doing better with them.

    I knew you'd be happy about my audiobook progress. And it's all thanks to you! *mwah* I'm really enjoying Ever After. I just wish I had more time in my day when I could listen. *ha*

    I figure I'll get in double my goal for audio as well, Lola. I'm really enjoying audio now that I found some narrators (and authors) I love. You're doing so well with your goals - and as you can see, your goals are much more involved than mine. :)
