Saying Good-Bye to 2011: Happy New Year!!


As we walk into the new year, we have to say goodbye to 2011 and focus on our goals and aspirations for 2012.


I've had a pretty good 2011. I've had firsts and lasts, victories and losses, and I've met a lot of great people along the way.

I won my first contest/giveaway on Peace, Love, Teen Fiction: a bookmark pack.

I won my first First-Reads giveaway on Goodreads: Moonlight (Pact Arcanum, #3).

I started my book reviews blog: Zodiac Book Reviews.

I started A Bibliophile's Thoughts on Books after a couple failed attempts that I wasn't happy with. I'm very happy with this one though.

I completed my Goodreads Reading Challenge with 113 books read in 2011 (that's not including manga, otherwise the number would be over 200).

I participated in my first blog event: Wonderfully Wicked Read-A-Thon.

I started my Facebook Page: Twin Dragons Knowledge- Books & More.

I got a Twitter account!

And so many other things, I can't think of them all.

Goals for 2012

I hope to write a lot more reviews than I did in 2011. I already have a few lined up that the author's requested from me.

I hope to bring more content and readership to A Bibliophile's Thoughts on Books.

I'm upping my Goodreads Reading Challenge goal to 125 books read in 2012 (not including manga).

I'm participating in the Wicked Winter Read-A-Thon. Yay for the #WWReaders!!

I'm taking part in 3 other reading challenges: YA Mythology Challenge, Dystopian Reading Challenge, and Immortals Reading Challenge.

And I hope a meet a bunch of new people in 2012, and having fun with those I already know!

Now what's the new year without singing a little song? (I'm sure you know which one I'm talking about).

English Translation

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne ?
For auld lang syne, my dear,  
for auld lang syne,  
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,  
for auld lang syne.
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.
We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.
And there’s a hand my trusty friend !
And give us a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

Happy 2012, everyone!!
