Today is the day to be looking back at the Goals I set for January, as well as setting myself some new ones for the upcoming month of February. I hope you are all well and have had a good start to the year, I hope it’s not been stressful and the New Year has rewarded you. It feels like yesterday that I was setting Goals for January, so I can’t believe it’s already February.
This month should be a good one for not only myself but Yasmine, I briefly spoke about this in my January Favourites this week, I don’t want to be repeating myself so please head here to see what I loved in January and what is in store in February for myself. I love reflecting on my goals, it seems to give me the motivation I require, as well as figuring out what I need to do each month.
Before I set myself some new Goals for February, let’s reflect on my January Goals!

Here we go, another month means it’s time for January’s Reading Challenge for the Blogger Book Nook. I’ve really enjoyed being a part of this reading community as it’s really pushed me to read each month! Before I wanted to read but I just haven’t had the time, with this community though they are all supportive and it’s a great motivation to read.
This month’s Reading Challenge is Judging a Book by its Cover. Challenging us to pick up a new book purely based on the cover. We receive our monthly Reading Challenge from either Abbey or Tabitha, two of the kindest girls, on the Facebook page. Here we have some great conversations and are able to talk books! This is also the perfect opportunity to get to know new bloggers, ones that have a similar interest, books and reading.
Right, let’s get on with January’s Reading Challenge.

It doesn’t feel that long ago that I was introducing you to November’s Reading Challenge, it’s now time to look ahead to December. This month’s Reading Challenge is Festive Reads! This is a very fitting reading prompt with Christmas just around the corner, if I’m honest I don’t think I’ve read that many festive related books. It’s one genre that I’m too keen on if I’m honest.
It’s great to be apart of this community and it’s great chatting with everyone on the Facebook page. Here we have some great conversations and are able to talk books! Right, let’s get on with December’s Reading Challenge.

For today’s post, I am going to be sharing with you my Goals for December, as well as recapping on the Goals I set for November. I really hope you are liking these posts as I’m really enjoying writing them for you each month, they definitely help me to keep up to date with what is going on.
It’s definitely a good thing to look back at these each month as well, to know where you’re going right and wrong. First of all, let’s have a look at my November Goals.

Here we are again! Today I am going to introduce to you November’s Reading Challenge, this month the Blogger Book Nook has been talking about all things Young Adult. This is definitely my favourite reading prompt so far with the Blogger Book Nook, as even though I’m no longer ‘classed’ as a young adult, I still have a long list of books to read in this genre.
Alongside answering the five questions each month, we also chat with one another on the Facebook page. Here we discuss the prompt during the month, including what we’ve been reading and our favourite authors. I love when Abbey adds a Question of the Day to the group because it definitely gets me thinking! It’s also nice to see if we like similar things.
Here we go, it is the end of the month and a lot has happened this month that I can not wait to share with you today. I can’t believe how quick October has gone, it feels like yesterday where I was writing September Favourites. Before I realised it, it is the beginning of November, which means my 22 Birthday is now in sight. October has truly been a good month for me and my family, a lot has happened to make my life a lot better.
I have loved October and here are my Favourites;
I am really excited to share with you today’s post! Remember that little Blogger Book Nook I introduced you to earlier this month? Well, that was September’s Reading Challenge so you are lucky this month as there will be two posts as today I am introducing you to October’s Reading Challenge! I am really enjoying being a part of this community, everyone is really friendly and I’ve been getting along with them all very well. There is always fresh content on their Facebook page.
Be it content from other bloggers, questions of the day and just general chit chat! I am very excited by this month’s Reading Challenge as it fits in very nicely with what is happening at the end of the month! Yup, that’s right, I am speaking about Halloween, meaning a Spooktacular theme for October. Now I adore Halloween, don’t get me wrong, but I am not the biggest fan of scary movies. I think the scariest I’ve watched is stuff like The Walking Dead! I could never watch It, The Shining or even Saw.
I have some very exciting news to share with you, I am now apart of a community called Blogger Book Nook! I thought I would introduce you to this community today as I’ve fallen in love with it and there are some great bloggers involved. Growing up reading was something I always struggled with, my English skills were very poor. Until one of my teachers actually helped me and recommended some authors to improve my reading skills.
This is where my love for Jacqueline Wilson started and I still enjoy reading her books. Now I am pretty much addicted to reading! Whether it be DC Comics or Marvel and supernatural thrillers, I love to be sucked into a different universe. Recently though I’ve had to stop reading as much as I used to, thanks to the time I didn’t have during university. With me finishing my third year in May, I’ve now had a lot more time to actually read, as you know from my monthly book reviews with Neverland Blog Tours.
Now enough chit chat, shall we get started?
If you are a regular visitor to An Ocean Glimmer, you’ll know just how much I adore reading! I’m not going to bore you too much because I am super excited to share with you the book that I’ve been reading this month. I really enjoy being a part of the Blog Tours hosted by Jenny Marston over at Neverland Blog Tours. Every month I am introduced to a different author and different book, that before hand I might have never wanted to try.
So far I have yet to come across an author I have previously reviewed. This month, I am the twenty-third stop on the Deadly Burial Blog Tour, a novel by Jon Richter. I am normally involved in one-week blog tours or something called a Weekend Blitz when it’s over the weekend, but never a two-week blog tour. This is very exciting for myself and all the other bloggers who are sharing the love for Jon Richter’s novel.
