News Year’s resolutions

Happy New Year! Now is the time for a fresh start and to make promises to ourselves.

This year, my book related resolutions are:

– to read even more than last year;

– to read a wider range of books;

– to try and get more people sharing their favourite books on this blog and

– to write down all of my ideas for a book of my own!

Do you have any book related resolutions? Please share them with me, they might make my list too!

All the best for 2016!

    I think that to read a very wide range of books, maybe we could write mini stories (3 paragraphs max) and others could read them?

      Why not? Just make sure that nobody takes your ideas? Love it though. Do you think being an author might be on the cards when you’re older?


      1. mia m says:

        Maybe, but I’m not too sure!


  3. mia m says:

    It was just a thought…

    I’m going to try and write a whole story, because I always get started on one, and never finish it!

    Here’s My story. I’m making it up off the top of my head, so it’s not the best. Here goes!

    “AAARGH!” cried Leila. “HELP!”
    Leila was almost caught be the treacherous beast. He was so close!
    Wait… that’s not the start? Silly me. Let me tell you from the beginning.
    Once, in a small town in north Carolina, live a young adult called Leila Porter. She had lived with her roommate, Carol Beret, for about 2 years, when Leila got an email from her parents.

    Hi sweetie,
    We just wanted to let you know that we won two tickets to the Bahamas, and we wanted you to have them. You can go with Carol!

    Love, mom and dad. Xxx

      Leila was stunned. She had always dreamt of being there. But Carol… she had otherwise seen enough of there.
      “Seriously? You want me to go to the one place that my parents died? Great friend, Leila.” exclaimed Carol.
      “I didn’t know that! I can’t read minds!” Leila, by this point, was quite frustrated.
      “Fine! I’ll go on my own. I’ll be in the sunshine and paadise if you want me!”


      1. mia m says:

        I can’t think of an ending! I may have to finish it after school tomorrow or tonight, but It’s a bit tricky without a plan!


  8. mia m says:

    i’ll finish I tomorrow. hope you enjoy it!

      I like your resolutions Megan! I actually have been keeping a track of what I’ve read since I started training to be a teacher in August 2013. Some have been fairly short children’s books and some have been rather long adult books. I’ve just flicked through my little notebook which helps me remember authors of books so I can recommend them, and I’ve read 107! That probably makes me a bit sad, but oh well! It makes me happy β˜ΊοΈπŸ““πŸ“–
