Is my current salary reasonable, and what should I negotiate towards with my employer?

I am an analyst with a small consulting firm. I am coming up on being there for one year. I got a raise after only a few months, and if I make my maximum bonus currently make $37000 + health insurance. They suggested we might revisit the salary conversation next month at the time of my 1 year anniversary of being hired. I am 1 year out of college living in Atlanta, majored in Psych with minors in Marketing and Economics and 4 time Dean's List Honoree. I do work lots of hours..... probably 55-60 hours per week. What is a reasonable salary expectation?
