Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Resolutions

Hooray the first Top Ten Tuesday of 2016 (a weekly feature you can find at The Broke and the Bookish).

This is a fun post because I don't actually make resolutions about my life, so maybe I'll stick to books ones. Probably not, but we'll see.

1. Read books I already own. It's been really fun getting into reviewing and receiving ARCs, but I've got books on my kindle and on my shelves. I should start on those, huh?

2. Don't impulse buy. This goes with #1. I'm really bad about buying books for $.99 or something ridiculous like that.

3. Build my community. Basically I want to read more blogs and make new friends.

4. Write better reviews. I'm pretty new to the whole reading/reviewing thing and sometimes I feel like my reviews are just a lot of thoughts thrown together. I want to be better at organizing them.

5. Keep track of purchases. I really wanted to do this last year, but I fell off the wagon of "not buying books". I'm going to do better this year!

6. Expand my genres. I like a lot of different genres but I find that I tend to lean toward certain things. I'd really like to try some new genres this year.

7. Take recommendations. Sometimes I tend to brush off others' recs. I'm going to do better this year.

8. Read  A LOT. My goal is 200 books. I'm going to try it.

9. Don't be a snob. I guess I don't take a lot of recommendations because I tend to be a book snob. I'm working on it.

10. Love reading! Sometimes I get caught up in an ARC or a book that I think I have to finish, but I just don't enjoy it. So, no more of that. If I don't love it, I'm not going to force myself to finish it.

Well, there it is. Hopefully I'll be able to accomplish some of these things.

What are your resolutions?

Happy New Year. 


  1. Good luck with all of your 2016 resolutions!
