#AMonthOfFaves: Reading Goals, Personal Goals and Resolutions


Oh wow! Can you believe that A Month of Faves is almost over? I can’t! Jazz hands to Tanya and Andi for this rocking event!

Today’s Prompt:

How did you do – Reading Challenges, Personal Goals, Resolutions

Reading Challenges:

I’m currently at book 119 read this year. Goal: 130. It could still happen- it just all depends on how the next few days shake out.

Personal Goals:

Does it sound bad to say that I didn’t really set personal goals? Because that is basically the truth.

Oh, I’m trying to eat more healthy. Walk every morning. Reclaim my Elliptical Queen title. But I didn’t set that as goals- I just know I need to do those things- so I do. For the most part.

For 2016- I’d like to set some personal goals- goals where I can talk about meeting people ( dating and new-friend wise- because I’m in a dating drought and a new friend *not counting online friends* drought).

Other things for 2016 (personal goal wise)

Focus on getting stronger- I want to be able to lift more weights and walk a mile faster than my current time.

I want to get my “nest” more organized. I thought with some of the things that happened earlier in 2015, I was going to get closer to having the closet of my dreams- but major roadblocks on that path. Le sigh.

Start asking for what I want. No excuses. No wasting time with people who don’t have my best interests at heart.

Looking back at 2015 A Month of Faves resolutions– I’m pretty happy with how I did in 2015. I didn’t get my massive list of contacts for publishers quite done- but oh well. But I said no more. I took time out for photography. I did what I wanted- and while I still want blogging to be fun- I’m actively looking into ways that I can turn my passion into book blogging/author promotion into something that could make some money.

Resolutions for 2016:


Save more money. I like to shop- and while I don’t spend THAT much- sometimes when I open my credit card bill, I feel a bit Becky Bloomwood-ish.

Spend less time watching TV and more time actually DOING things.

Spend more time with my niece.

Not be afraid to say that I want and deserve love.

To take more time to pamper myself- more pedicures and manis.


How did you do with goals/resolutions in 2015? What are you looking to change in 2016?



Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,

  1. More manis-pedis….that’s my favorite goal!! And – one of my 2016 goals will also be finding some creative ways to monetize my blog πŸ™‚ I’m seeing that pop up on some other posts as well, so we’re not alone!

    • That’s a good plan πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I’m striving for more balance as well. I’d been working out for the last few months and it took a hit in Nov/Dec. I’m back to it- and I just ordered some longer yoga pants for my morning walk (I work out on the elliptical trainer, then take a walk around the house- a mile. The sun and fresh air puts me in a good mood!)
