My Bookish New Year’s Resolutions 2016

Posted 1 January, 2016 by Rinn in Misc. / 14 Comments


Last year I shared my bookish New Year’s Resolutions for 2015, so I thought I’d do the same this year! Let me know if you have any resolutions, bookish or not, in the comments below.

  • Finally get round to the books I’ve been meaning to re-read. I’ve already taken a step towards this by announcing some planned read-alongs.
  • Get my Netgalley ratio over 80% – or even to 100%… It’s currently sat at 77%, so I’m close!
  • Do not worry about quantity of books read, but focus on quality. I always aim to read at least 100 books a year, but that shouldn’t be the most important thing. Instead, I should aim to read books that truly appeal, rather than picking up shorter/quicker reads just to up the number.
  • Although… I would also like to reach 1000 books marked as ‘read’ on Goodreads. However, this should be pretty easy as I’ve only got 20 or so to go.
  • Make more use of the Goodreads recommendations feature. Because, you know, I already don’t have ENOUGH books to read. But I’ve noticed that Goodreads chooses some really fantastic books for me based on my shelves, so why not use it more?
  • Make some progress with my Classics Challenge. This is a lifelong challenge so there’s no rush, but I’ve barely made a dent in it since starting.
  • Get back into the swing of commenting on other blogs. I was really dedicated during Sci-Fi Month, but other than that I’ve been slacking on comments.
  • Keep blogging!

What are your resolutions for 2016?

    • Thanks, I’m pretty proud of getting there! Although I feel like a lot of bloggers always have 100% or some ridiculous number. Because I have a lot of books from Netgalley, 1% is still several reads…

  1. The Netgalley one is a good one. Mine is currently at 65% and I would LOVE to try to make it to 100 by the end of the year. Race you? ;D

    My commenting game has really sucked lately. 2015 was just a bad year for it. But ONWARDS!

    • CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! Although… how many books do you have to read for 1%? 😛

      Yes! I actually added the blogroll to the side for several reasons – one, of course, to get people to visit those blogs. But two, to remind me to comment on them.

    • Yes, I might try and set aside just 20 mins every evening or several evenings a week just to leave at least some comments. Have a good one, Ana! <3

    • Haha, but it still doesn’t feel enough for me! And yep, I don’t want to read any more ‘filler’ books. I want to read things that I’m interested in – if I don’t like it, I’ll DNF it. Simple, then more time for the amazing stuff.
