2015 Bookish Resolutions Challenge

2015 Bookish Resolutions Challenge 
From January 1st to December 31st

This challenge is all about New Years Resolutions for books and Book Blogging. 

1. Read at least 24 Netgalley books which will help get my % up. I'm to embarrassed to disclose my % but when I first joined Netgalley I was way to over excited and took on so many it's out of control. I've also limited my number of books that I request in hopes of not adding to my crazy to read list. 

2. Complete all my reading challenges in 2015. I've been working hard to keep my list manageable for the new year. Check out my list (here). I also want to read 200 book in 2015 since I didn't read my goal last year. 

3. Comment and respond to comments more. I'm super shy so I'm more of a blog creeper but I want to become more active and social this year. My goal is to increase my commenting on other blogs as well as respond to my comments. 

4. Craft projects that are bookish, cross stitch, book marks, kindle covers and more. I have a whole list of fun stuff on pinterest that would be fun bookish projects. I hope to do a new project with a bookish theme each month. 

5. This one is a non-book/bloggish goal I want to exercise more and loose weight. I'm not going to divulge how much weight I want to lose but I am a little on the chubby side. 


  1. I like your goals. I am really trying to work on my owned book this year. I also have tried to limit my challenges. It is not going well. Commenting is something I always need to work on. Sometimes I read the post and then save it to come back to comment and never do. I too have the same fifth goal, but I am calling it a lifestyle change. Weight loss is short term whereas if I change my eating/ exercise habits and make that my new lifestyle I'm more likely to stick to it. I started it slow this year, but I'm going to continue next year and try a few new healthy habits.

  2. Great resolutions! I joined NetGalley two months ago and I refuse to disclose the amount of books I have on my list to read. LOL Let's just say my % is way below what it should be. :)

  3. Welcome to the challenge Mandy! I'm looking forward to seeing images of your Bookish Craft projects (if you include them in the monthly update that is!) Don't worry about being a Blog Creeper, we're all friendly really!

  4. Great goals! I also would love to see the projects you create. I also have to increase my Netgalley ratio, I also over did it my first year. Good luck and have a great year!
