Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Resolutions / Goals

                Hello everyone!  Top Ten Tuesday is just how it sounds, a topic is picked and we put our Top Ten for that in a post and share and check out everyone’s answers.  Top Ten Tuesday is now being hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl.

The top ten today is:  Bookish Resolutions / Goals


Complete my Reading Challenges- I am doing several challenges this year, most repeats from the previous year that I didn’t complete and I want redemption

Finish open series that I’ve started- I have some that I am 1 book into and others I only have 1 book left to finish them.  Not only will this help my one of my challenges but it will let me put to rest some of the open stories in my head.

Review all the books as I finish them- I have a bad habit of sometimes finishing a book and diving right into another, specifically the sequel, and not reviewing it first.  That makes reviewing it difficult as I don’t want my thoughts on the next one to influence me.

Growing my blog- I don’t really know how to do this specifically just make sure that I am staying on schedule and making sure my posts are 100% uniquely me as always.  Oh and not forgetting to post my links over to social media would probably help too….

Work on Instagram- I have an Instagram but I don’t post much there.  I love to browse it and such and look at all the beautiful photos but I just never take the time to get that perfect shot or type in all the #’s (autocorrect kills me here)

Read more books I already own than new buys- Okay I have a library now.  I finally got to create a dedicated library and I love it but I have so many books I got and was super excited to read them but never got around to it.  I know some I have kind of moved away from but others I’m still eager about and just need to go through and pull them out!

Write- I used to write all the time from my own little stories, a couple books I have started and never finished, and fanfiction but in the last year or two I haven’t written anything that wasn’t a review.  I just always find myself doing something else and not putting my time towards it.

                   Tell me what you think of my list in the comments below.  Which would you recommend so I know which ones to get first?  Also please link back to your Top Ten as well so I can check out your list and see what I missed!

  1. Using social media really does help with blog traffic but I'm not the best at doing it either. I don't fully understand Twitter but at least I am trying! Good luck on all of these goals.

  3. Instagram is pretty amazing if you ignore the bad algorithm. The community there is really great and you can post about your blog on it as well.
