Happy New Year And My Bookish Resolutions For 2018

Happy New Year to everyone!

I hope 2018 will reserve for each one of you a year full of happiness, possibilities, love and more reading time.

For the first day of the year, I will share with you some goals I set for this blog and for myself, that I want to do all of them before the end of 2018:

  • Read 150 books and more than half of them will be #ownvoices and diverse books;
  • Writing more Blogger Bubbles;
  • Participate in more challenges;
  • Be more engaged in the blogging community;
  • Take more beautiful photos on my Bookstagram account which I never talked to you about, you can follow me here.

And before I forget, to be more motivated to write discussion posts, I decided to join the 2018 Book Blog Discussion Challenge hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight!

2018-Discussion-Challenge
