Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Resolutions/Goals



Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme previously hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there’s a new topic for a top ten list.


This week’s topic is Bookish Resolutions/Goals. I couldn’t think of ten, so I went with eight instead.


1. Read 100+ books – My Goodreads goal is 100 books right now, so I’m hoping to once again beat that goal. I’d love to get to 125-150 books this year, but I probably won’t make it.

2. Read 50 backlist books – I have so many older books (published before 2018) that I need to read, especially ones I already own. One of the reading challenges I joined (Beat the Backlist) focuses on this.

3. Read more books I own – I’ve been awful at reading books I already own. I am taking a break from the library, and focusing on my shelves instead. At least that’s the plan haha.

4. Catch up on Netgalley eARCs – Reading on my phone (my Kindle died last year) has not been very conducive to reading Netgalley eARCs, especially since I get migraines. Maybe I’ll get another Kindle soon if they go on sale.

5. Schedule more blog posts – I used to barely have anything scheduled, but I’ve been getting much better at it. And I want to continue scheduling blog posts far in advance. Maybe I can even get a whole month scheduled. I think the most I’ve had at one time was 15-20 scheduled posts.

6. Finish/start more series – I’ve been reading a lot of standalones, and want to focus on some series I have on my shelves. I haven’t read many of them since the series focused reading challenges I joined a couple years ago.

7. Keep blogging every day – Since I joined a comment pod (hi everyone!), I’ve been working on posting every day. And so far, I’ve done a fantastic job. I want to keep that momentum going. Some days it’s hard, but it’s rewarding in the end.

8. Join more cover reveals, and release blitz/blog tours – I’ve recently joined a couple of these promo type posts, and I’ve really enjoyed them. I love bringing new books (and their amazing covers) to people’s attentions. I think I’ll join some more this year!

Do you have any similar goals? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. Hi, Nicole! 😀 I can totally identify with almost all of your resolutions, especially the ones about blogging more and reading backlist books. I’ve got to pare down my physical TBR so badly and I’m thankful for Beat the Backlist to help push me to make that happen! <3
