Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday there is a different bookish top ten list. Join in on the fun!
Top Ten Resolutions I Have For 2016:
1. Read More
I pushed myself last year to read 50 books (which was more than I have read prior to being on goodreads, because before then I didn’t count how many books I read a year). When I hit the 50 book mark, I changed my goal to 75 books and I ALMOST made it! I read a total of 73 books last year. And if I had pushed myself more when I was in really bad reading and life slumps, I would have SURPASSED that. Because there was about 2 months that I didn’t read anything. And I really wish I made the 75 book goal, but I at least made my original 50 book goal and I am happy with that. But I know I could have read more. So, this year, I am wanting to read at least 100 books. That would be roughly 2 books a week give or take.
2. Schedule Posts More
I got a lot better towards the end of the year with scheduling my blog posts. And I plan on getting even better. I want to schedule as much as I possibly can. To help me out with my life around April, because April is THE MONTH! I will be getting married to my best friend and the love of my life in April and I will be SWAMPED with wedding stuff in March and April. So, I’d love to have a lot of posts scheduled during those months!
3. Finish My Reading Challenges
I entered in a lot of reading challenges this year AND I am co-hosting a Reading Challenge with my friend, Katrina. I plan to achieve most if not all of the challenges that I am participating in this year!
4. Finish Series That I Have Already Started
I still have to finish quite a bit of series! Some that I need to finish:
1. Mara Dyer Trilogy (1 book left)
2. The Moral Instruments Series (3 books left)
3. The Lunar Chronicles (1 book, plus novella left)
4. Starbound Series (1 book left)
5. Sweet Evil Series (3 books left)
And that’s just off the top of my head…
5. Read Comic Books or Graphic Novels or Manga
I really want to give this genre a shot. I’m very intrigued by it and I recently rented Deathnote from the library and am very excited to try it out! 🙂
6. Finish A WIP
2016 will be the year that I will succeed at finishing at least ONE of my novels! I need this goal to be achieved so that I can be one step closer to my dream which is to be a published author!
7. Get In Shape
Last summer Joe and I signed up for the Gym. We went for a good 2 months and I was feeling good about it. Then we got SO busy and haven’t really been back in a while and I really need to fix that. I’d like to at least tone my body up and I’d like to look even better when walking down the aisle.
8. Cut Back On Smoking
I did good on this last winter and then I went back to smoking lots. I really need to cut back drastically or just quit altogether. I’m going to try and wane myself down so that it will be easier to quit altogether because I’d like to be completely done with smoking by the time Joe and I decide it’s time to start trying for kids.
9. Read Then ENTIRE Harry Potter Series
This has been a goal of mine for a while and I think it has gone on way too long for me NOT to have read this series. This year that changes! I will read this series!
10. Read Outlander
I’m really intrigued by this book and the only thing that is keeping me from it is the fact that it is so long. BUT, I really want to at least give it a shot! I’ve heard such great things about this series and I want to know what I am missing! 🙂
