Happy New Year! Today is As Told By Tina’s 5th blogversary!

I wasn’t sure what to do for my 5th anniversary so I decided to do the New Year’s Resolutions tags. I found the video on Youtube and you can watch it here. It was two days and I just answered the questions together. If you do the tag, let me know! I want to read your answers.

The New Year’s Resolutions Tag

1. An author you’d like to read (that you’ve never read before).

I’m semi cheating however, I have started a lot of Renee Carlino’s books and I ALWAYS end up putting them on the side for some reason. I WANT TO FINALLY FINISH ONE OF HER BOOKS.

2. A book you’d like to read.

I loved the Kiss Quotient and I really want to read The Bride Test.

3. A classic you’d like to read.

I re-read Cadaver and Queen and loved it and it made me want to read Frankenstein. I’d probably listen to the audiobook first.

4. A book you’d like to re-read.

My plan is to finally finish the trilogy. I really want to watch P.S. I Love You so I really want to read the book first. IT IS MY GOAL.

5. A book you’ve had for ages and want to read.

My mom bought me this series like 10+ years ago and I have yet to even finish the first book. And every year, I say I’m going to read it and hopefully 2020 makes that happen.

6. A big book you’d like to read.

7. An author you’ve previously read and want to read more of.

I haven’t read Twice in a Blue Moon yet but I do want to read more Christina Lauren in 2020. I really like their writing and I find myself getting out of slumps thanks to them.

8. A book you got for Christmas and would like to read.

I actually didn’t get any books for Christmas but I did get $100 so I may just buy some books. I haven’t really bought books in a while a really long time to be honest.

9. A series you want to read (start and finish)

Funny fact: J.C. Cervantes was one of my English professors in college. I read SO MANY amazing children’s books in her class that I still own today. I’d love to read her books finally. I was able to meet her last year and she signed this book and the sequel for my son and I.

10. A series you want to finish (that you’ve already started)

I recently listened to The Raven Boys again on my drive to Phoenix. I want to FINALLY finish the series so that I can read/listen to Call The Hawk Down.

11. Do you set reading goals? If so, how many books do you want to read in 2020?
I haven’t set an actual goodreads goal in a very long probably 3-4 years. However, I decided to go ahead and set a goodreads goal this year. I decided to challenge myself to read 92 books.

12. Any other reading goals?
I’ve joined a couple reading challenges and I plan to finish most of them.

The New Year’s Resolution Part 2 Tag

1. How many books do you challenge yourself to read in 2020?
I’m challenging myself to read 92 books in 2020. I averaged my reading from 2014 -2019 (aka the years I’ve been blogging) and tried to see my average. It was 92 so I went ahead and set my goal to read this many books.

2.What book did you not read in 2019 that you WILL read in 2020

I really want to finish Ninth House.

3.What series ending book are you planning to read in 2020?

I want to finish the Caraval series. I’d like to see where the series is going and how it ends.

4. What series do you plan to start reading that you have yet to start?

Football romances are my weaknesses (also Hockey) and I really want to dive into Alexa Martin’s series.

5.What one thing you hope to accomplish ot do in your reading/blogging/booktubing in 2020?

I really want to grow my platforms. I pop in and out a lot and I really want to be more consistent in posting and engaging on different platforms.

6.what genre of books do you plan to branch out to in 2020, if any?
There are a few genres that I’d like to branch out. One of the genres I’d like to read is urban fantasy and perhaps cozy mysteries those look like a lot of fun and I really want to read them.
