  1. These are all wonderful resolutions! I hope you all have a really good 2016 (especially job wise because that is important for…living xD). AND GOOD LUCK ON NURSING SCHOOL, LAUREN!
    My resolutions include- being more confident in who I am and standing up for what I want. Stop disappointing my loved ones. Increase my reading speed (I feel ya on that whole two books a month thing, Kelly). And I really really really want to just pour my all into blogging. I’m treating it like it’s a career 🙂 So hopefully 2016 and the blog will bring me great places.

    • Thank you so much!!! Good luck on your resolutions this year! I know you can do it. If you ever need help with some support just let me know. You can always find me on Twitter! @BetweenDPages


  2. Good luck all of you with your goals! I also need to find room for a new bookshelf….but I have no intention of haulting my physical book buying lol 😉 Also need to work on reading what I have but I do have a serious problem with book buying!


  3. Good luck on all your goals!
    Kelly– I need a new bookshelf too! To fit all those unread books…. haha. I should really go to the gym, well, work out in general but I’m glad it is working out for you :).
    Lauren– I’m actually the opposite and I’m TRYING to read more fantasy, haha. If you have any recs, definitely throw them my way. Good luck on your novel, I’m intrigued!
    Melissa– I need to complete series I already started as well, especially the ones I already own!

    Maybe you should all just go the gym together and walk on the treadmill while reading books you already own ;).

    • I would love to go to the gym with with Kelly and Melissa (if they would go with me) but living as far away from them as I do…I don’t think that would work. Would be a lot of fun though!

      And fantasy recs?? I can give you some anytime you ask! Just DM or comment to me on Twitter and I’ll help you out! (I’m @BetweenDPages)

  4. Completing series and reading the books I already own are my top bookish resolutions for this year too. I’ve always failed in the past, but hopefully that’ll change this year!
