I'm back! of 2012 and blogging resolutions!

Hey everybody! I'm baaaaack! *cheers* I'm so happy to be back blogging again! I had a lovely break, but I won't deny I missed you all :) For my first post back I'll be posting my new years (yes I know its way past new years -_-) blogging resolutions for 2013 as well as my top ten books of 2012. I'll start with my favourites of 2012 - in no particular order... ;)

Divergent by Veronica Roth
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
Vampire Academy: Frostbite by Richelle Mead
Dear Dylan by Siobhan Curham
Wonder by R.J. Palacio
Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale
And Actually... by Denise Deegan
The Look by Sophia Bennett
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
(These are all amazing books, which I would highly recommend to you all!)

And My Best Book of 2012 goes to....*drum roll*

And For Your Information... by Denise Deegan
This book is AMAZING. It's moving, realistic, and just brilliant! I was going to just have the list my best books of 2012, I wasn't going to pick just one as the best, but this one stood out so much, I just had to give it a special mention!

My blogging resolutions for 2013, which I AM going to stick to! - 

  1. Make more of an effort commenting on other blogs
  2. Keep in contact more with my fellow bloggers (does that sentence make sense?)
  3. Try and post at least two reviews a week
  4. Be more organised about posts etc. on the blog
  5. Only accept books for review that I really want to read - my for review TBR pile is way too big!
  6. Take part in In My Mailbox once a month
  7. Post a discussion post/interview, or something else other than memes or reviews at least once a month
  8. Get to 300 followers by the end of the year (fingers crossed anyway!)

So these are my late New Years Resolutions! I'll try my best to stick to them!

And as for what you can expect from me in the foreseeable future - lots of reviews, a stop on the blog tour for Me, Suzy P by Karen Saunders this week, and I'll try and get an interview lined up for the blog too! So watch out - Bookster Reviews will be back with a bang *cue cheesy wink*


    I haven't heard of And For Your Information... before but it looks good and I'll have to try it out!
    Some really great resolutions, too! I'm really trying to post more discussions this year and I've started asking people to do interviews, as well.
    I've also started to comment more on blogs (like I'm doing now!!).



    Seriously though, when I saw my blogroll and there was Bookster Reviews at the top, I was so excited! It's great to have you back at long last, and I'm really glad you enjoyed your bloggy break.

    Loving your resolutions, being more organised is a very popular one with bloggers I've noticed ;) And awesome Fave Books List! I LOVED Divergent but still need to read The Fault in our Stars. (I know, I'm terrible!)

    And I really hope you make it to 300 followers this year! You truly deserve to get that many, plus hundreds more.

    Welcome back Cliona! I'm really looking forward to your posts, and your book tour stop :)

    Ooo, and there are a few Giveaways going on at Booked Up! right now if you'd like to check them out :)


  3. YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! I've missed you and your fantabulous posts so much! SO GLAD YOU'RE BACK! xD

    Out of all theses books, I've only read Divergent. But it was amazing and I definitely recommend it too! :D I really want to read Dear Dylan though! :)

    Can't wait for all the posts you've got lined up! xD

  4. YYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY CLIONA YOU'RE BACK!!!!!!!!!! *dances around the room! :D :D I've missed you and your blog! Merry (very very very late) Christmas and a Happy (late-ish) New Year! Hope you have a grear 2013 :D

    I really loved Divergent, Wonder and Dear Dylan too, they are some of my favourites from 2012 too! AND OMG THE FAULT IN OIR STARS.... (don't get me started on my rant...) XD

    Good luck with your resolutions, I'm sure that you'll be fine! You'll definitely get 300 followers, you deserve millions. :)

    Glad you're back! :) xx

  5. Oh I loved all of the books on your list that I've read! Excellent books.
