Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Today’s theme is supposed to be the top ten resolutions for 2016. I’ve never been a fan of resolutions, so I’m going to just post my reading goals for the year.
1. Get 80% on Netgalley
Anyone who is on Netgalley knows what I’m referring to. This is the percentage of books you’ve been approved for vs the percentage of books you’ve reviewed. Now that I’ve discovered that as long as you’ve already sent the book to your Kindle you can still put in your review after the archive date, this will be a much easier task to complete.
2. Complete my challenges
Currently I am working on five challenges. None have me scouring the web to find books whose author’s name has the same initials as me or anything crazy like that. To me they are easier to achieve if they just have to meet a specific goal, such as being a new release or being a dystopian.
Here’s the challenges I’m currently doing:
COYER (Clean Out Your E-Reader): 7 of 20
2016 New Releases Challenge: 0 of ?
2016 It’s New to Me Series Starter Challenge: 0 of ?
2016 Dystopian Challenge: 1 of ?
2016 Horror Challenge: 1 of ?
Goodreads Reading Challenge: 6 of 100
3. Read Game of Thrones
I have tried reading this book several times and I always wind up just skipping through to my favorite character’s parts. So my goal is to get through the entire book this year. NO SKIPPING
4. Finish the House of Night series
I’ve had the final book to this series since it came out, but I have yet to read it. The problem was I couldn’t remember exactly what had happened in the last few books. So last year, I started working on rereading the entire series. I’m currently on book 10 of the 13. So my goal is to finish this reread so I can finish the final book.
5. Childhood Reread
I have no delusions of being able to read every book in my list of childhood series that I loved. There are far too many of them and it cost money to buy the books. But I plan on continuing to get through the series I’ve been working on and start reading some of the ones I haven’t gotten to, yet.
6. Read More Books
Yes, my Goodreads challenge says I’m aiming for 100 books. That’s because you never know what is going to happen throughout the year. I figured it was best to aim low. So 100 is more than my goal of 75. But after I reach that goal, I hope to move toward beating my total of 189 books last year.
Anyways, that’s all I have for today folks! Leave me a link to your Top Ten in the comments below. I can’t wait to see what wishes you’ve come up with.
