Top Ten Tuesday: bookish resolutions for 2016

Top Ten Tuesday: New Year's bookish resolutions for 2016It’s been a while since I’ve linked up with The Broke and the Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday, so what better way to jump back in then with a New Year’s resolutions post? This week we’re listing our ten bookish resolutions for 2016, and after a long two months of barely reading or book blogging,  I certainly do have a few!

  1. Read more. Period! I’ve only read a couple of books in the past month, largely due to being so busy, but I got a huge stack for Christmas and can’t wait to dig into them.
  2. Get through my ARCs faster. I tend to download them and let them sit and sit and sit. I’d really like to start doing more release-day reviews.
  3. Post more book reviews on the blog. I do monthly roundups, but I’d like to do more in-depth reviews on single titles.
  4. Do more buddy reads. I did a couple this year and loved them.
  5. Be more active in the book blogging community. Linkups, giveaways, tours, etc. I’ve really enjoyed getting in touch with my fellow book lovers around the world and need to spend more time in this community!
  6. Wrap up some of my ongoing series before starting any new ones. Though obviously I won’t be able to wrap up A Song of Ice and Fire any time soon…sad face.
  7. Read some longer books. I tend to skip over long books (400+ pages) even if they sound interesting just because the size intimidates me. I like to flutter from book to book and a book has to be very, very strong to hold my interest for several hundred pages. But I would like to pick up some lengthier tomes this year.
  8. Get through titles before they become movies. Because otherwise I end up not getting to see the movie, either.
  9. Find more Nordic crime to read. It’s one of my favorite genres.
  10. Read more. Did I mention that already?

So what are your bookish resolutions for 2016? Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear about them!
