It's been a while since I last blogged and kept up with the blogosphere, especially the bookish related. I've had an extremely busy second half of 2010, mostly related to my job and 2011 promises to be no less busy…sigh…
Despite spending my weekdays (and sometimes weekends) slogging over work, going through a change of jobs and slaving through banking exams, I’ve managed to somehow achieve the following in 2010:
- Read 19 books
- Finished 1 out of 5 reading challenges joined
- Did 4 very exciting outdoor/travelling trips. Managed to write a review on 2 of them.
- Found 30 new inspiring blogs to follow
- Began my addiction to Twitter
As mentioned, 2011 promises to be another busy year for me. I still have one more major banking exam to complete and to top tings off, I’m expecting a baby. Yes, another cute addition to the family and I’m super excited about it. It’s been a while since my last pregnancy; to be precise the last one was 5 years ago. I’ve been battling with morning sickness (more like 24 hours sickness) but crossing fingers this will be over soon. So, with pregnancy and a new baby on the way, I’m expecting zero outdoors and travelling trips in 2011 but perhaps more time to indulge in reading. I hope to read more, at least double the amount read in 2010. I’m also planning to read more books written by foreign authors, mainly Asian, as well as books that are not so popular, for example those that I’ve found in a quirky bookstore or in a garage sale but promise to be an interesting read. I’ve always enjoyed reading books recommended by fellow bloggers in the US and UK, especially YA and vampire stuff, so these will still be on my reading list for 2011. And to start off the year, I’ve already enrolled myself in yet another vampire reading challenge hosted by Book Chick City here.
To all blogger friends and non-blogger friends alike, here’s wishing you all a fabulous 2011 year ahead!
