Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top Ten Resolutions We Have For 2016 (can be bookish, personal resolutions, “I resolve to finally read these 10 books, series I resolve to finish in 2015, etc.). I’m not a resolutions kind of girl, so here are 10 things I challenge myself to do in 2016:
ONE. Limit my bookish spending. Pre-order no more than 12 books (average 1 per month). Spend no more than $60 on used / bargain books (average $5 per month).
TWO. Post more book reviews. Write monthly Look Reviews (full book reviews with an accompanying outfit) and post my micro mini Goodreads reviews on the blog.
THREE. Read at least 200 books.
FOUR. Read these 11 Poirot novels, plus 1 short story:

FIVE. Read 26 books for a personal Alphabet Challenge.
SIX. Participate in Cruisin’ thru the Cozies with Yvonne @ Socrates Book Review. I’m entering at Level 4 – Sleuth Extraordinaire – Read 21 or more books.
SEVEN. Read at least 12 selections from my personal Classics Challenge list.
EIGHT. Once again, cut WAY back on my wardrobe. I want to go minimalist. I’m still working on the details. This includes my kids’ wardrobes too. They have so many clothes they rarely wear!
NINE. The obligatory fitness resolution. 😆 But seriously, after my epic year of reading, I really need to get my butt in gear and be more active.
TEN. Participate in TTT every week.
