Top Ten Tuesday: Resolutions We Have For 2016

January 5: Top Ten Resolutions We Have For 2016

1. Read more. - My goal is usually 100 books, but I've read 110-115 the past two years, so I really want to push myself to read a little more and try for 125 books in 2016.

2. Listen to more Audiobooks. - I listened to a lot more audiobooks in 2015 than I usually do, and they are seriously the best thing ever. I plan to listen to a lot more in 2016!

3. Read more books I BUY. - I'm usually so engrossed in review books, that I never have time to read books I buy for myself. This is something I've really got to work on this year.

4. Read more New Adult / Adult Fiction. - I really enjoyed all the New Adult and Adult Fiction books I read in 2015, and I'm planning to read a lot more this year!

5. Start over the Harry Potter series and FINISH it this time! Every year I say I'm going to finish this series, and I've yet to do so. I'm totally going to do it this year, I hope! I also plan to watch all the movies as well.

6. Be more active on Social Media. - I've done a pretty decent job lately at keeping my Twitter and Instagram updated, now I just need to work on my other accounts, including my personal ones!

7. Catch up on Netgalley Books. - I am really behind on some Netgalley books I've requested over the years and haven't had a chance to get to, so I really want to work on getting those reviewed this year.

8. Get ahead of schedule with review books. - I always feel like I'm behind on review books, I always seem to be reading them right around the release date. I'm hoping to actually get ahead this year!

9. Watch more movies. The past two years I've made a goal to watch 100 movies, which is a lot for me because I'm not really a movie person, and I've yet to actually reach this goal. I guess I'd just rather be reading! Haha!

10. Binge watch some TV Shows. - I've always wanted to be one of those people who binge watch TV shows. Unfortunately, I have the attention span of a gnat, and I spend most of my free time reading, so this is something I've really never had time for. BUT, there are SO many shows that I want to watch, so I'm going to try to do that this year!

That's just a few of my resolutions for 2016!!
I hope I can stick with them this year. :)


  1. I really need to make time for more audiobooks this year, too.

    Check out my TTT.

  2. A lot of your goals coincide with mine...although I definitely forgot to add them to my list. Like catching up on my Netgalley books! I got way behind last semester because of school and I *need* to catch up.

    Also, your blog is so cute! I don't think I've ever been on it before. But I love the cute little bee and the matching flower graphics!

    My TTT Post!

  3. I just started getting into Audiobooks this year and I really enjoy them. Great list of resolutions, Christy. :)
    My TTT

  4. Re-reading the whole entire Harry Potter series is something I just did in November and December for a Pottermas feature on my blog. It's hard to stick with reading the whole series since the last four books are so long but it is so worth it! I hope you're able to re-read the entire series and I hope you can marathon the movies as well. Happy reading and watching.

  5. I've recently joined bookstagram and would love to keep that up to date! Good luck with your resolutions!

  6. I wish I could read 100 or more books per year. That's so impressive!! I don't think it's ever going to happen for me, so I'm lowering my goal to 75 :) I've been so much better at reading books I own, and I need to keep that up. It's hard looking at all the lonely books lying around waiting on me to read them... hahaha. But if you ever need any binge show recs, let me know. I've been a binger for a while now :)

  7. Oooh nice! Good luck with your resolutions this year!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  8. Good luck with all of your goals for the year! I finished the Harry Potter series last year. You should definitely try to complete that goal this year. I've also enjoyed the NA books that I have read and need to make it a point of reading more of them in 2016.

  9. I could have added just about all of these to my own list! I joined an audio book challenge and didn't even think to add it to my resolutions, looking forward to them.

  10. Audiobooks are definitely on my list of resolutions, too! We'll see how we all do this year, but I've got my fingers crossed. :) Happy new year!

  11. I want to make time to watch more movies this year also. I use to watch them all the time but haven't lately...Oh well I want to start watching at least 2 movies a week.
    Good Luck!

    My TTT! :D

  12. I love all of your resolutions and might add some of them to my list now! I haven't read all the Harry Potter books either, even though I've said I will like 100 times haha. Also, totally need to catch up with my NetGalley books as well!

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday!

  13. I have seen "more audiobooks" on a lot of TTTs today. I totally agree. I need to reread the HP books again, too. I don't know if I will get to it this year, though. Great list. Happy New Year.

  14. Fantastic goals! I hope to get caught up on my reviews. I am so behind! Good luck with your resolutions! I hope you get through the Harry Potter series this year. I love those books and I hope you will too.


Thanks for stopping by! :)
