2016 Personal Disappointment

I’m sorry.

I’m sorry that I didn’t meet my own standards.

I’m sorry that my 2016 resolution didn’t even get started.

Well, I did end up reading a couple of books that I had won.  I just hadn’t written a book review about them.

For that, I’m sorry.

I’m not really sure what the next year will be.  It may end up being a better year for me in my reading resolution.  Then again, I’m not sure what to do for my 2017 book resolution.  All that I can predict is that my focus will be health-focused.

We shall see what the next year will be.  For sure, I WILL get back to blogging.  How frequent that may end up being I’m not sure, but I want to resume blogging.

Fellow readers, I wish you the best for the end of this year and the beginning of next year.


2016 Reading List

First of: HAPPY 2016!

Secondly, here is the list that I’ll be reading for this year.  As a review, I’ve posted last year that I’ll be reading some books this year.  Books that I’ve won by entering some book giveaways.

This is a tentative list.  I may end up changing it as the year advances.



Forbidden by Beverly Jenkins




Books in the list include:

LinkedIn In 30 Minutes (2nd Edition): How to create a rock-solid LinkedIn profile and build connections that matter by Angela Rose

The Coincidence in Coconut Cake by Amy E. Reichert

Jaded by Anne Calhoun 

Married ’til Monday by Denise Hunter

The Quest of All Ages by Maha Devi Li Ra La

Getting Rough by C. L. Park


This is not the complete list for my 2016 reading list.  But it’s a good place to start.


What Sailor Moon characters would look like if they were born in the Western world

Another W-O-W.



Have you ever wondered what Sailor Moon soldiers would look like if they travelled to an alternate reality and were drawn by a western hand? Well, thank goodness for fan art because one clever artist has delivered the fantasy. This unique collection of Sailor Moon pictures has the scouts looking more like Disney stars rather than sparkly-eyed anime characters, and with heartbreaking back-stories in each beautiful portrait, you’ll be seeing the girls in a totally new light.

What if Sailor Moon characters were lingerie models? They’d look stunning like this 【Photos】

Wow. Just W-O-W.


Remember the Sailor Moon lingerie that lingerie brand Peach John released in Japan earlier this year? Thanks to them, we were able to feast our eyes on both lovely models and amateur Twitter users posing in the novelty lingerie.

But now the tables have turned! Chinese artist SoudWrong has created a series of illustrations featuring Sailor Moon characters as lingerie models instead. If you’ve ever wondered what the ladies from Sailor Moon would look like posing in their undies (for whatever reasons, we don’t wanna know), now’s your chance!

2016 Reading List Proclamation

It has been a long time since my last post.  But I digress.  The point of this post is to proclaim the book list that I’ll be reading for 2016.  I had planned this for some time, and I wondered where I was going to post my list.  Then I remembered that I have this blog, and here it is.

Before I go on further about the 2016 book list, let’s talk about the manga portion of this blog.  And let’s face it, it has been what I’ve been posting about for the longest time.  So what is the future of that?  Not sure.  I hasn’t been reading manga for some time.  Well, the ones that I’ve been posting about.  I had read two chapters of this new manga series, but not enough interest about it to post an entry.  So the future of that is up in the air.  Or in other words, on hiatus.

That takes care of that portion of this blog.  Now back to the topic at hand.

I’ve been entering some book giveaways.  For a few of the numerous book giveaways, I ended up winning the prizes.  And I hadn’t read them yet.

Thus, my 2016 goal, in which I plan to read one book prize per month.

I have more than 12 book prizes.  I just plan to read at least one book per month because I also plan to review said book.  And I’m bad at book reviews.  Or at least posting them.  Plus, there is also the likelihood that I may end up reading other books during the month.  So I’m leaving myself a little wiggle room each month.

Flexibility is key for me in this 2016 goal.

I hadn’t decided which books I’ll be reading for my 2016 goal.  There are a couple that I’m pretty sure I’ll be reading, but they’re not a lot.  I’ll have another post focusing on my 2016 book goal where I’ll list the books that I’ll be reading.  This is just an announcement about my 2016 intentions.  Or resolution.  Or whatever.

So there it is.  More details will be announced at a later post.  Stay tuned!
