Posted September 30, 2015 by Lola in Challenges / 12 Comments

The 2015 Bookish Resolutions Challenge hosted by A Reader Lives A Thousand Lives and Because Reading is Better Than Real Life.

Every month on the 30th I will be doing my recap of that month. You can check out my goal post here

September Recap

  • Accept no more than 1 book with a deadlines each month. I failed this one in february already.
  • Read at least 3 (cozy) mysteries. Two mystery books read so far and I got two cozy mysteries book from netgallet, so I think I am gogin to reach this goal as well, yay! Does Visions count as a mystery? In my opinion it does, so I listed it here. Below the books I read for this goal:
  • Read at least 3 historical romances. Made it! I even read 4 historical romance so far and one DNF. Links to the books I read for this challenge are below:
  • Read at least 20 review books this year. I read 58 review books so far this year, totally powned this goal! I keep adding books to the list as well though, so I am not really making a dent in my for review pile.
  • Organize at least 30 tours with Lola’s Blog Tours. Yay reached this goal! 31 tours organized so far!

How are you doing with your (bookish) resolutions so far?

      • You really did an amazing job! You should definitely be proud of that πŸ˜‰

        Ooh! I rarely read any novels in the mystery genre (unless you consider romantic suspense under the same category :p) but I really love watching thrillers and mysteries in movies. Haven’t gotten quite a hang of it when I was reading though, but that’s definitely an area I would venture into in my future bookish adventures! I wanted to start off with The girl with the dragon tattoo series. The movie was great!!

        • I don’t consider romantic suspense mystery books, unless they have a strong focus on a mystery. Romantic suspense is another genre I want to read more books of. I am still relatively new to that genre as well.
          My experience with mysteries in books is that I enjoy them, although I haven’t quite found my way in the genre yet. My favourite mysteries are those by Kelley Armstrong, she often adds mystery to her paranromal series and I love how she writes mysteries. The twe cozy mysteries I read were fun, but not awesome.

    • I might be most happy about reaching that goal ;). I organizing 22 tours in total last year, so being on the 30 already is a great increase comapred to last year. It’s good to see my business growing like that.

  1. I’m doing so-so on my goals. I’ve done better toward them, but haven’t quite reached a few. I’m taking less tours and reviews so I can finish up my older ones. I wanted to DNF books I didn’t like and I’ve done that a few times though probably not as often as I should. I wanted to stay off social media for at least one day a week and I’ve done it some times. I wanted to read more from my TBR pile and I’ve done that, but I also added several. Haha!

    You are doing so great even if you’ve slipped a few times. The tours are amazing since that’s part of your livelihood. Still more time to keep adding more over the top on the goal. πŸ™‚

    • DNF’ing books I don’t like is still hard for me, but I think I did well this year. I DNF’d a few books, but also pushed through a few hoping they would get better.

      I am really happy with how well I did with my tours, it’s great to see I organized more tours this year than the last one. I am hoping that upwards trend continues.

    • I agree it counts that I read them, but the reason behind the goal was to put a dent in the pile, ah well not having it icnrease too much also is a good goal. It’s nice to see I read so many review books, part of that is probably as I started reading boosk during breakfast on my kindle app and most of those are netgalley review books.

    • Thanks! I finished reading two cozy mysteries so far, the first one I’ll review on tuesday. I haven’t really found my way in the genre yet though as both were 3 stars reads.
