Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Happy New Year all!  This week's theme is Top Ten resolutions for 2016.

  1. I will finish reading A Dance with Dragons.  It's been sitting partially read for a year and a half - ever since some of my coworkers told me how it ended.  I still want to finish it though.
  2. I will read less and write more.  That is to say - I won't spend every waking hour reading.  Instead, I will dedicate time every day to reading, and I will dedicate time to writing.  This is the only way I will finish anything.
  3. I will finally read the second and third books in the Starbound trilogy.
  4. I will not spend $300 a month on books.  Instead, I will read books already on my shelves.
  5. I will read The 5th Wave before the movie comes out.
  6. I will actually request ARCs from publishers (not just on NetGalley or EW).
  7. I will finish reading the Mara Dyer series.
  8. I will finish at least one manuscript and start querying agents.
  9. I will post more actively on my blog.
  10. And finally: Not book related but... I will not be so sedentary, and I will cook actual food.  So maybe I can get rid of the thirty pounds I gained last year.
 What are your New Year's resolutions?


  1. Ooh nice! I loved the Mara Dyer series!! I was late to the game but as least the wait wasn't too long!

    I'm also trying to cook real food this year. I'm just so bad at cooking, but the things that I have mastered are pretty good.
