2016 #BookishResolutions Progress Report (Update #1)


At the end of each month I plan on updating (updates are all in bold font) my 2016 Bookish Resolutions Challenge. I think this is the perfect way to keep all those goals handy so I can track my progress. Please let me know if you are taking part as I would love to go and cheer you on.




Reading Goals:

  1. Get my NetGalley score back up to 75%. (I am at 36%) (I am currently at 38%)
  2. To read all the books I have in my NetGalley shelf before requesting more. (I currently have 81 books on my Netgalley shelf) [ I read 2 books of my shelf this month]
  3. To read at least 2 (a month) of my own physical books a month. (Books that I have purchased) [I read 3 of my own books this month]
  4. To read at least 2 (a month) of the books I have on my Kindle app. (I read 2 books off my Kindle app this month) 
  5. To read at least 3 series that I have sitting on my shelf. ( did not complete)

Blogging Goals:

  1. Update the challenge page monthly. (this is the first month)
  2. Read a book, review the book before starting a new book. (yes I have been reading and reviewing before starting a new book)
  3. Visit and comment on more blogs. (yes I have been making it a point to comment daily on my blog and visit blogs)
  4. During the week work on having some rainy day posts in draft for when you need them. (Yes I actually have 30 pre scheduled post available)
  5. Spend one day a month cleaning up the blog, work on adding things to the blog and to update my good reads page (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/1554784-cindy) (I actually will do this nightly in the evenings)

Personal Goals:

  1. To finish knitting the scarf I started years ago. (didn’t pick it up this month)
  2. Get back into cross stitching as I have a few patterns I want to make. (printed patterns but didn’t pick up)
  3. Work on my daily affirmation jar. (yes doing this daily)
  4. To curb the book buying. Its has gotten a little excession in the past year. (to date I have bought 9 books)
  5. To eat healthier and to lose weight. (trying to eat healthier and curbing our take out. This month we only bought take out 2x)


  1. Excellent month so far, Cindy! I really should work on my Netgalley goals too!

    Other than my snowed in days when I was stuck at work, I’ve been really consistent with commenting on blogs, which is really making me feel like part of the community again. I found the easiest way for me to do it was to ignore my feedly/bloglovin, and just type up a list of my favorite friend bloggers on a Google Sheet and just click on them one by one, every day. That way I rarely miss their posts, and I’m keeping it reasonable. I will eventually try to incorporate Bloglovin back into my life, but I’m just trying to make a new habit.

  2. I really need to work on my netgalley shelf too.
