2012: Thank you!

2012 has been the best year I could've hoped for! I have achieved so much that I am so proud of and met so many people. I feel like I have grown as a person-confidence wise too, and found out who I am. I was always more afraid of being who I really was, a booklover, an aspiring-writer and a day dreamer. I also love to have everything organised and enjoy music and fashion. All in which I have really found out in this year. I've faced new challenges, visited so many new places, created memories that I will always remember and found life-long friends. I started blogging in April and since then I have made so many new friends, found something that I really love to do and found confidence. I want to thank everyone who has read this blog and the followers that read my posts and comment. Who have become my friends, who are always ready for a conversation all about books and to get excited over one of our favourite books being made into a film. Most of all, the funny chats we have about book-boyfriends. Thank you to everyone who has sent me an email-because each time I see that I have something, waiting to read, I still get excited. Your support has been amazing-and I feel like I have become better at writing, reviews and everything else I do on this blog. I have been able to start writing a column for a newspaper, getting the chance to have book-shaped packages through my door for reviews and even challenge myself to write a 18,000 word novel in just one month. It has built my confidence, self-esteem, made me so happy and proud. I've also discovered The Hunger Games-which all the people who know me probably wish I hadn't! And been able to get to know so many incredible people!

This time last year, when we were saying farewell to 2011, and making our resolutions for 2012, I never thought about starting a blog, or reading more as one of them. But, I always make resolutions  because it's good to set a goal.

  1. To achieve something I have never achieved in before. 
  2. Join a club or group where I can meet more people whether it is a writing club or drama.
  3. Read a different variety of books and genres including the classics. Finally read the Harry Potters!
  4. Write more. Possibly write a novel-however short it may be.
  5. Achieve in school: work hard, get good levels, do well.
  6. Be more confident-be more comfortable in different situations and in-front of my peers.
  7. A really important one for me is to stand-up for myself. I always feel like I allow myself to be picked without saying anything because I'm naturally afraid.
Happy New Year! Thank you for making this year and I hope you have a great 2013. And now as midnight approaches, I'm actually really sad to see 2012 come to a close. 

Thank you! And since I'm thanking everyone, I have to say a big thank-you to my family who I never let look at my blog, but support me in everything I do!
I'm so sorry because this is my last post until next year!


    Was the book boyfriend thing about me..? YAY FOR THE HUNGER GAMES!!!

    And I'm wanting to read Harry Potter, too! And write more!

    1. Happy New Year to you to! You guessed right- I couldn't help mentioning it! You know how much I love The Hunger Games! I really need to read Harry Potter, I think it's because the people around me have read them and love them.
      Hope you have a great 2013!
