Top Ten Tuesday #60 {2016 Resolutions}

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten 2016 Bookish Goals & Resolutions

1. Read 30+ books - I keep this goal low because it is hard to find the time to read with a one year old!
2. Read at least 5 Book to Movie Adaptations - There are so many every year it is really hard to keep up!
3. Finish at least 3 Series - I plan on finishing at least 5 but in case I can't find the time, 3 is fine.
4. Start no more than 10 new series - This is probably going to be a big fail. It's really hard not to read that shiny new book that turns out to be the first in a series. 

5. Read at least 10 books from the '1001 Books To Read Before You Grow Up' list - I will probably read more than 10 since I read books to my daughter every single day and would like to tackle a lot of books on this list.

6. Read at least 2 classics - I LOVE classics but they are long and time consuming.
7.  Participate in at least 1 read-a-thon - This depends on how much time I can pull together to read. I will most likely join in on the first Bout of Books of the year while I'm still super eager to work on my goals.
8. Have at least 100 blog posts by the end of the year - I couldn't find the time to blog very much in 2015. I'd like to remedy that, even if I have to write a ton of posts in the middle of the night.
9. Record that I have read at least 100 books with my daughter - I read anywhere from 1 to 5 picture books with my daughter every day but they are usually re-reads or I forget to record that I read them on Goodreads.
10. Keep up with my challenges on my Goodreads 'The Book Challenge' Group

What are YOUR goals for 2016?


  1. Oooh, I love your book adaptation resolution, that's a really great idea -- especially because I like to read the book before seeing the film.

    Good luck with all your goals!

  2. I think it's so great that you've included reading to your daughter as one of your goals for the year! Reading to children is so important, even for one-year-olds. Hopefully she'll be a little bookworm one day.

  3. I seem to write most of my posts right before bedtime, it can be impossible to find the time! Good luck with your resolutions! :)

  4. Happy reading to you this year and that you reach all of your resolutions this year!!

  6. Great resolutions :) I am a huge sucker for those 1001 Books To Read Before lists, I also want to find one and work on it! Good luck and Happy New Year!

    1. I'm also working on the '1001 Books to Read Before You Die' list but it's full of classics so I know I'll never read them all! The 'Before You Grow Up' list seemed much more do-able with a little one to read to! :)
