Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday!
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke And The Brookish. Who doesn't love lists. They make life easy! And fun!! It's always a never ending topic.

This week's topic: 

Top Ten bookish resolutions for 2016 (and a couple not)

I've been working on this list for weeks and weeks trying to get it just right.
I've noticed that blogging has felt more like a chore and less fun recently. I'm trying to bring the fun back into blogging this year.

1. Read my own books - I'm sure this one is on everyone's list this year. I have so many books that I've bought in the last six months and read maybe three of them. I want to read what I want to read not because it's trendy or popular. I'm hoping to do better this year. I'm not going to read them all and I'm not going to stop buying but I do hope to read more of them.

2. Read out of my comfort zone - I want to read 12 books at least out of my traditional reading or comfort zone like non-fiction to name one. 

3. Review books - More selective on the review books I accept and not get overwhelmed. If I really want it and it won't happen right away just buy it and read it when I have the time. I would rather be in the right mind set then not and feel forced to read it. 

4. Manga - My newest addiction. Try at least one new one each month. 

5. Blogging - Enjoy it if it's not fun anymore than find ways to make it fun. So far I'm super excited this year about it. Hoping to keep the momentum going. 

6. Reading goal - My currently 2016 is 250 books this year. Last year I slacked but didn't push myself this year I want to have at least 250. A huge goal but I'm feeling ambitious that with more of my own books I'll read more. 

7. Blogging - Try to post more ahead instead of the morning of. This one is tough I never scheduled like I should. 

8. Foodie Friday - I love to cook and started a foodie Friday where I will share one tried recipe each week. 

9. Crocheting - I want to learn a new stitch each week. 

10. Comment more on other blogs - This one is a big one. I need to be better at it. I read ever email for those I follow but I'm more a creeper not a talker. This year I want to be more of a talker. 

11. I want to find my bookish bff - I know lots of bloggers have that bestie they share everything with and this year I'm hoping to find it. 

What are you top ten goals of 2016?


  1. Oh nice! Those are good ones! I don't think I could read outside my comfort zones! LOL! So that's very courageous of you in my opinion! LOL. I've yet to truly find my bookish bff. Best of luck to you on all these goals!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. Yeah, reading more of my already owned books was definitely on my list this week too!
