my 2009 readolutions: an analysis

The analysis: I aced ‘try different authors and genres’ and I also developed my own slack-arse version of reviewing.

The conclusion: Apparently, I am an unrepentant book slut *quelle shock* who will occasionally do the review thing if I must.

In other words, I basically suck.

Told you I would.

Reads, rants, randoms & R+s. You've been warned. BTW, don't follow me if you're a GLBTQQphobic wanker. It won't end well. For you.

    That's why I never make resolutions…

    I'm getting a lot better about toughing it out until things hit Fictionwise. That said, I sure hit Fictionwise hard on Mondays. šŸ™‚

  2. Tam says:

    Resolutions are stupid. You did pretty well, better than most probably. LOL

  3. Anonymous says:

    “In other words, I basically suck”

    Birds of a feather… So what does that say about the rest of us here?
    And if there are so many of us then that means it's all good. Let the slutiness/suckiness continue.
    A proud book slut.

  4. Chris says:

    Oh, yeah, what I meant to say was “Thank you for helping me embrace my book sluttiness, Kris, and stand proud.” Promoting increased acceptance of book sluttery SHOULD have been one of your readolutions, because you aced it. šŸ˜‰

  5. MsM says:

    I never make resolutions – makes my failures too obvious.
    Instead I say “I hope to…” and that way I'm not so disappointed with myself because I don't feel like I broke a promise to myself. Also if I say “I hope…” to a lot of things, chances are I will do at least SOME of them and I can look at that and say “Well I didn't completely fail…”.


    By the way, I have my review of the m/m movie “Shelter” on my blog today.


  6. Ingrid says:

    You can't have it all Kris šŸ™‚

  7. Jenre says:

    I thought you'd done quite well, actually. Perhaps trying to restrict your book buying was just a step too far. Oh well, you live and learn, my dear. šŸ™‚

  8. Kris says:

    Let this be a lesson to all of you; occasionally, very occasionally, even my awesomeness has a hiccup.

    Chris: And you try and get us all to join you in your FW spree too. Don't forget that part, Chris.

    “Promoting increased acceptance of book sluttery SHOULD have been one of your readolutions, because you aced it.”

    *adds that to 2010 list*

    Tam: Actually, I'm pretty astonished that I did even half of that. LOL.

    Suzi, you're my new BFF. I really like enablers. *beams*

  9. Kris says:

    MsM, I think I'll take a page out of your book this time round so as to avoid a full 10 mins of angst when I realised I sucked like I did this year.

    Ingrid: True. I should be prepared for these very infrequent instances of semi-failure. šŸ˜‰

    Jenre, thanks. “Perhaps trying to restrict your book buying was just a step too far.”

    Good point. I'm never doing that again.

  10. Chris says:

    You know, you can configure your FW newsletter prefs so you get a nice listing of the m/m titles they add each week… šŸ˜‰

  11. Kris says:

    Get thee behind me, Chrisatan.

  12. Chris says:

    Why do I have a feeling that you're working on a version of my avatar that has horns?!

  13. Tam says:

    How the hell do you do that Chris. I can never find anything there. I search Gay Romance but it would be nice if there was a section that was easy to find.

  14. Chris says:

    Just sent you an email, Tam…

  15. Lily says:

    Kris, it's not really a *fail* if you tried. Your site is made of total awesomeness and you are a book slut extraordinaire. Can't really ask for more than that! šŸ˜€

  16. Kris says:

    Chris: “Why do I have a feeling that you're working on a version of my avatar that has horns?!”


    Lily: All good, not to mention very true, points, Lily. šŸ˜‰

    BTW, did I tell you that when I saw your knew avi I thought it said 'I love cocks'? I was pretty disappointed when I realised what it really said. LOL.

  17. Lily says:


    Yeah, I love those too, but my avi's about books. You perv!! ;D

  18. Kris says:

    Lily, actually I'm pretty sure it's you cos remember the sperm Xmas tree…

    Nuff said.

  19. orannia says:

    You no fail! You just succeeded in part *grin*

    And if it helps, you can't be any worse at reviewing than I am. I reviewed…four books I think this year, and I've trying to write a review for one book that I read almost 6 months ago! And I have to review it as I can't read the sequel until that review is written!

  20. Kris says:

    Orannia: “You just succeeded in part *grin*”

    I like it and I'm keeping it.

    Reviews. Blech. I've got a number to do for Wave's blog. šŸ˜¦
