Bookish Resolutions 2016!

First of all, Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all have amazing 2016s filled with equally amazing books.

  1. Conquer my TBR list! It feels like I have a million and one books to read - okay, maybe only
    (Some of the 70-80 books I need to read!)
    70-80 books - and this fact is stressing me out a bit. So this year I have a plan to Read More, Buy Less! I doubt this will work, given all of the incredible books that are coming out in 2016, but I want to try and limit my book buying, maybe only buying as many books as I read in a month? I'm still not 100% about how to go about this, though.
  2. Read the Harry Potter series - Don't kill me, but I haven't read the Harry Potter books! *runs away from angry mob* I never really had an interest in reading them, but this year I have decided to try them
  3. Read Crown of Midnight (and reread Throne of Glass) - I read Throne of Glass last year and, while I thought it was all right, I was not blown away by it (unlike most of the book community!). However, I want to give this series another try to see what everyone loves about it.
  4. Be a better book blogger - A little bit of a vague resolution, but I want to post more often and develop a posting schedule, and maybe write more review and tag posts. I haven't devoted enough time to this poor little blog!
  5. Finish the novel I'm currently writing - This story feels like my first proper attempt at writing a full-length novel, so I really want to finish it! (I have a bad habit of starting stories and then forgetting about them for years...and years). I may participate in NaNoWriMo - although I already know I'm going to be so busy in November - and, if I finish it, I may post up a couple of chapters on Wattpad.
Let's see how many of these I end up completing by the end of the year! (Probably not many, but I can dream!) I've set my Goodreads challenge to 50 books, as I know I'm going to be busy this year, but it would be nice if I read more! In 2015 I read 61 out of 60 books. Do you have any bookish resolutions for 2016? What have you set your Goodreads challenge to?
Thanks for reading(:


  1. Ooh, good luck with these fabulous goals! And don't worry...I only read Harry Potter last year. XD I was a bit annoyed by the first books? But the last two were GOLDEN AND OMG SO MANY FEELS. *pauses for a second to hyperventilate* ahem. And writing. Writing is good. I hope you do participate in NaNo. I think it's really fun? And encouraging! I always feel most encouraged when I know a zillion other people are writing (crying?) while I am. xDXD
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

    1. Thank you! I feel like I'm the only person on the planet who hasn't read Harry Potter at times!XD I like that aspect of NaNo, just not the daily word goals!(:
