Book Resolutions For 2014

It's that time of year again!  Time for resolutions!  More specifically, BOOK resolutions!
So while thinking about what I would like to bookishly resolve to do this year, I figured it only made sense to take a look back on previous years and previous resolutions.
And you know what I found?  I really suck at keeping them!
But I shan't let that lack of achievement stop me.  Hells no!
I will learn from my past mistakes!

So this year I've resolved NOT to get all resolution crazy.  Instead I will focus all my bookish energy on keeping the mere 2 resolutions that I've come up with.  So, without further ado, here are my Book Resolutions for 2014:

1.  I will STOP obsessing about hitting that coveted "100 books read" mark and I will instead enjoy the books I do manage to read and I will review and post them promptly.  (Normally and shamefully, I put the "pro" in procrastinator.  I'd like to stop that shit and start blogging on the regular.  You know, like a blogger does.) 

2.  I will start up The Super Nostalgic Book Flashback Challenge again!  I've been wanting to do this one for a while now.  I've kinda missed the BSC, and the Sweet Valley gang, and the effed up horrors of R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike.  I've also missed being super snarky.  ;)

So, there you have it. My very short list of Book Resolutions for 2014!
What about you guys?  Got any Book Resolutions of your own that you'd like to share?  Well dish it up in the comments section or you can find me on Twitter @girlsleuth and share your rezzies by using the hashtag #BookResolutions.

Have a happy new year, y'all! And happy reading!!!

Back From The Brink... ish

Aloha bloggermuffins!  No, I'm not writing to you from the beautiful isles of Hawaii.  I wish!
But, alas, nope.  Instead I'm reporting live from the kitschy innards of Nancy Drew Is My Homegirl headquarters where there are, unfortch, no tropical drinks with tiny paper umbrellas or shirtless cabana boys to fetch them for me.  But there are shelves and shelves of books to read!
And, after all, that is what this blog is about: BOOKS!!!

I realize you may have forgotten that since I went all radio silent.  And I totally understand if you're super confused, considering I haven't written a blog post since... Holy Shit! July 21st!  Of LAST YEAR!  That's 5 months, 3 weeks and 4 days!
Just think of all the bloggy, bookish, awesome shizz that's happened since July friggin' 21st of last friggin' year! 

Ugh! I've been a very, very bad book nerd.  And that's my bad, y'all.  But, you know, sometimes life just kind of happens.  And when it does, things like books and blogging and blogging about books has to take a backseat for a sec so you can refocus and sort your shit out. 

I feel like, at this point (5 months, 3 weeks and 4 days later,) the bulk of my shit has been sorted.  Meaning I'm ready to jump right back in and blog my lil' heart out!
Sooooo, I'll be back soon!  And I hope you will too!
