Top Ten Resolutions I Have For 2016


Happy New Year's everyone. 2015 has come and gone and we are starting a brand new year with new bookish resolutions! 2016 is going to be great! After re-evaluating 2015, I decided there are a lot of things I want to change in my life. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten Tuesday asks bloggers to choose their top ten resolutions they have for 2016. The following resolutions are in no particular order.

1. I want to blog when I feel like it.
2. I want to read more backlist books.
3. I want to connect with more people and make long lasting relationships.
4. I want to tone down on the ARC requesting and acquiring but read more ARCs I already acquired.
5. I want to start taking lunch breaks at work to eat and read. 
6. I want to blog what I want to blog about
7. I want to stop caring about what others are doing. No competition please.
8. I want to visit more blogs and comment on more posts.
9. I want to use the library more.
10. I want to re-read more books that I love.

  3. GET IT GIRL! I love these. You are going for the laid-back life you should be living. I agree and love it! I also want to stop competing. I don't compete with ARCs, but I do with followers and I need to be more relaxed about that. Great resolutions, Nicole!

    1. Easy living! Definitely! Life is short so I want to kick back and relax. Enjoy everything I can!

  4. I'm trying to tone down on my ARC requesting as well! I get a little carried away and end up with so many that i can't read them all in time before their publication dates anyways! plus, i figure it's not really fair to take a book away from someone else who might have read it when mine is just sitting on my shelf!
    Great TTT post today and goodluck to you on your resolutions in 2016 Nicole!

    1. I am very good when it comes to requesting e-ARCs. I always finish them and review them. However, I don't want to put a lot of pressure on myself to read a bunch of ARCs. Sometimes I need a breather and I want to read a backlist title or a book that has been on my TBR for awhile.

  6. Those are definitely my resolutions too! I definitely want to stop going on ARC requesting sprees and read more backlist books and books that I want to read. I guess another resolution is to stop buying so many books and use the library more too. I'm drowning in my physical TBR at the moment T_T. Good luck with all of your resolutions! I'm sure you'll be able to achieve them :)

    1. Yeah...I have too many physical books. I am trying to start reading more on my Nook unless it's an auto-buy author.Thank you for stopping by!

  7. Never let your lunch break go by!!! It's your time!!! I love reading during the day. Totally breaks it up!

    1. Unfortunately, most of the time I have to eat and work at the same time. We've been understaffed for a couple years in my department but we are finally fully staffed which is great!

      Delete
    2. Take advantage!! Definitely puts you in a better mood no matter what. I look forward to it the moment I get to work, lol

  8. I love these Nicole! (Especially the lunch break one--that's when I get most of my reading done!) Great plan for the new year and good luck sticking with them! (I'm picturing you never having a restful lunch now and I am CONCERNED.)
