We’re already in the second month of the year, but it’s still fun to think about changes already happening. Chiara from Bookworms Anonymous created this New Year, New … Tag. It sounded like a lot of fun and I was tagged, so let’s check it out!
New Music …
Have you listened to any new songs or artists in the new year whether they are brand new, or just new to you?
This group isn’t new, but definitely new to me. Late last year, my boyfriend and I discovered Home Free.They’re a country acapella group, but also kind of pop? I’ve really started enjoying their music. So much so, the boyfriend and I are going to see their concert at the end of this month for our ten year anniversary! I’m so excited!
New Food …
Have you tried any new food, or drinks, so far this year? Something we all should try or something to be avoided?
After thinking about it, I don’t think I’ve really tried any new foods or drinks. Recently, I did try baking peanut butter cookies from scratch and I have to say they came out really good. Before this I’ve only made them from packages that have everything included. After doing this, I definitely won’t be baking any other way!
New Hobbies …
Have you started a new hobby or a new sport so far this year? Have you joined a new gym and not been? Or have you joined a gym and actually manages to go?
No new hobbies yet this year. In all honesty, I’m already busy enough with the hobbies I’ve been doing for awhile, haha. There aren’t enough hours in day! I haven’t joined a gym, but I do want to look into one this year. I’ve done Zumba before and really enjoyed it. Time to start doing that again.
New Books …
Here’s the bit all you bookworms were waiting for! Have you read any new books? Have you managed to read anything off you TBR? Any books you really want to recommend? Any books you have DNF’d?
I’ve read 27 books so far as I’mtyping this. So I can’t complain how this year has been going. Out of the 26 books, half of the have been new releases. I haven’t had to DNF any books, but there have been a couple of low ratings. So far my favorite has been Warrior Blue! I can’t recommend this book enough!
New Authors …
This really could have done this as a part of the books section, but I want to hear all about any new author’s you’ve discovered so far this year.
So far I’ve only read books by two new to me authors. One I’m not going to really talk about. Unfortunately that book just wasn’t for me! The other new to me author was Shaun David Hutchinson. The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza was a weird read, but definitely interesting. Even if I’m still not really sure what it is I read, haha.
New Years Resolutions …
Did you set yourself a New Years resolution this year? Have you kept up with it? How’s it going?
I’m not really one that sets New Years resolutions. The only goals I did set up this year are my reading goals. You can find those here along with Isabelle’s goals. I can’t wait to see what this year will bring when it comes to bookish things!
So those are the questions about this new year. It was actually fun to think about this! Feel free to tag yourself for this one, I’d love to see all of your answers! What has been your favorite book so far this year?
