My 2016 Reading Resolutions

  • To read at least 50 books
    • I know that this number may seem a bit low.  Especially for someone who is running a
      book blog.  But remember that I also have 4 kids & my husbands a truck driver.  haha...  In 2016, I was only able to read 16/25 for my Goodreads Reading Challenge.  Personally though, I write this up as a personal challenge.  This coming year though- I'm gonna ROCK it! 
  • Finally read Catcher in the Rye & the Harry Potter series
    • Yes, you read that right...  I have never read Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger or any of the Harry Potter books.  It pangs me to admit these short comings but I am truly hoping to redeem myself this coming year.  2016 will be the year that I join the rest of humanity by finally checking out these highly raved about books.

  • Participate in the 2016 Popsugar Reading Challenge
    • I have never participated in any sort of reading challenge.  Then again, I just started back to reading earlier this year.  There have been many different kinds of challenges that I have come across recently but the one that I have decided to dedicate myself to trying is the 2016 Popsugar Reading Challenge.  It covers 40 different "topics" & I'm looking forward to giving some of the less popular ones a try.
  • Review all books I read on the following outlets: this blog, Amazon, & Goodreads
    • I know that this should be a given since I am a book blogger.  However, it's not always easy to remember to share with all of these outlets.  This new year is going to be more organized & I've already created a new system to insure that I'm able to share my reviews more efficiently.

  • Interview at least 5 authors
    • This 2016 Goal appeals to both the writer side & the reader side of me.  I'd love to be able to share something as awesome as an author interview with y'all!  If anyone knows any new up & coming authors who are interested in doing an email interview, please let me know in the comments below.
  • Read a little every day
    • Yet another resolution that should be a given...  But I'll be the first to admit that I often put other things before reading.  & I'm not talking about the important things.  I'm talking about the endless time sucks that are Facebook, Big Farm, & any of the numerous games that are installed on my phone.  I always plan on reading before bed but once I am down for the night, I can hardly hold my eyes open.  So, I'm not sure if I'm going to set a certain amount of time aside each day or what.  I just know that I need to start reading DAILY.  No matter what!
  • Finally finish writing MY novel, What the Heart Wants
    • Things are finally starting to come together for me where my novel is concerned.  I'm not going to go too far into detail but feel free to swing by Wattpad to check out the first two chapters.  I'll be adding a new chapter about every couple weeks until it's done.  Then I start the editing/revising phase.

      What are some of your 2016 Resolutions?? 
      Bookish or other?? I wanna know!
