Bookish Resolutions 2016 END POST & GIVEAWAY

2016 Bookish Resolutions



Bookish Resolutions is a challenge I co-host with Michelle @ becausereading.com! I can't believe that our second year of Bookish Resolutions has come to an end...it just seems crazy! Don't forget to let us know how you did, and enter the giveway at the end of the post!


My Bookish Resolutions Goals (which is nowhere near what it should be!) 

Blogging Goals 
  1. Schedule posts before the day they are 'due' (especially for challenge updates!)
    Well this one was a bit hit and miss a couple of times during the year (including the past two weeks...but I'll be back organised at some point...honest!
  2. Post a detailed update on everything on the first Sunday of each month (previously Reintroduce non-review content)
    This one didn't go well!
  3. Cross post Blog Posts regularly, preferably in under a week since post date
    The longest I left it was a week, things have just been so hectic that that's all I could manage!
  4. Tidy up the Trips Down Imagination Road Facebook & Twitter Pages
    This one is going, mostly because I decided I was pretty happy with where I'm at with it. 
  5. Visit other blogs regularly (I used to but this dropped off the radar a bit)
    I've done this a lot less than I should have if I'm honest, though there are several books I've read this year because other bloggers recommended them!
Reading Goals 
  1. COMPLETED: Improve Netgalley ratio by at least 10% (if this is achieved by the half way mark then it will be upped to 20%). I did succeed in improving my ratio in 2015 and was actually quite surprised to find I'd improved it by 7% (at the time of writing).
    I added 14% to my Netgalley percentage, which I thought was pretty good going...hopefully I can add to that soon!
  2. COMPLETED: Finish 10 series this year. (I get distracted a little easy! I can have already started the series previously)
    So far I've finished 25 series this year;
    The Reckoners by Brandon Sanderson, Circle of Evil by Kylie Brant, Trevor's Harem by Aubrey Parker, Rook & Ronin
     by JA Huss, The Seduction by Roxy Sloane, City of Legends by Cheyanne Young, The Winner's Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski, Galaxy Playmates by Michelle M Pillow, Dark Dirty & Deadly by JA Huss, The Dukes of War by Erica Ridley, Everealm by JD Wright, I Am Just Junco by JA Huss, Things to Do Before you Die by Nina Croft, Sisters of the Moon by Nina Croft, Coded for Love by Lynne Silver, Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford, Midnight Masquerade by Kate Harper, Scoundrels & Secrets by Erica Ridley, Avry of Kazan by Maria V Snyder, Sisters of the Craft by Lori Handeland, Wrong by Jana Aston, Intergalactic Dating Agency by Michelle M Pillow, Werewolves of New York by Faleena Hopkins, Mister by JA Huss, Need by N Isabelle Blanco & KI Lynn
  3. COMPLETED: Complete 3 year long challenges (may change the number depending on how many I sign up for). Bookish Resolutions does not count for this sub-goal.
    I've completed 4 so far!
    2016 Prequel & Sequel Challenge, 2016 New Release Challenge, 2016 Netgalley & Edelweiss Challenge, 2016 Blogger Shame. I also passed my 2016 Read the Books You Buy, but unfortunately I failed out of 2016 Reading Assignment this month :-( 
  4. Read 3 books a month that were already on my kindle at the start of 2016 (can be from Netgalley, Amazon etc.)
    I think I've read 3! Its been a slow month!
Personal Goal


  1. COMPLETED: Finish Cloaked (the sequel to my published Novella)
    Cloaked is not only finished, but it is now Published! (Here's the link to prove it!)
