Update on things coming/continuing next year!

I will continue to post book hauls monthly
I will also do monthly Wrap Up/TBR posts

Once I get my own place I will most likely do a bookshelf post (unclear at this time)

I will continue doing cover reveals, sales and blitzes through tour groups however I will not be doing as many review tours.  I will be working on cleaning out my personal TBR pile on my kindle and storage unit/shelves.  So you will see more reviews hopefully than in the past.

I am also considering starting an online book club but have not finalized that plan.
