And so we begin at the beginning! 2017

And we’re off! Welcome back to the new and improved Hot Pepper Latte. It was time for an upgrade and at the beginning of a new year it felt like what better time to do so? For those of you who have been with me the last few years you will find more of the same HPL reviews that you loved, plus more new content including the new interviews for the Lattes with Ladies series and more spotlights on the lit scene in Toronto (and a few other places!).

It all sounds very nice as I’m writing it, but as I look at my calendar these 52 weeks are going to go fast. It’s easy to say I’m going to do everything and get carried away, so for my own good and to put a firm stake in this year, here are my reading-slash-blogging goals for 2017:

  • Read 50 books
  • Host 15 Lattes with Ladies
  • Attend 10 literary events

It seems like a lot in a little list. I tend to set big resolutions and goals and then either fall tragically short or simply forget to keep track as I lose interest! That’s why I started HPL in the first place, oh so long ago. Now you can follow along and share your own reading life with me in so many more ways. Follow me on Instagram and Facebook and don’t forget to comment so I know how I’m doing!

What are your reading goals for 2017? Let me know below.
