2017 Goals & Resolutions!

I can't believe it is already 2017!
2016 flew by (especially those last couple months). I'm late with getting this post together, but better late than never, right?

2017 Goals & Resolutions:

  • Read at least 150 books
This doesn't sound like much compared to what I read last year (281), but it's already the 5th and I haven't even finished a book yet. Been in a really bad slump that I thought I'd already be over by now, but not yet. It's a real struggle to read at all. :/
  • Get my NetGalley ratio to 80% or higher
  • Read at least 75 books from my 2017 TBR shelf on Goodreads
  • Finish at least 1 Nonfiction book every month.
Regarding this blog, I hope I can keep posting and get back to posting more consistently, but at the moment I've been dealing with some computer issues and also have just been busy. :/ Still, I hope you guys will all stick around and keep reading this blog, even if my posting is sporadic. ;p

Those are my goals/resolutions for 2017, please share yours below! Thanks for stopping by. :)


  1. I love your blog Melanie! And your goals and resolutions are excellent! Good luck! I wish I could be as ambitious!


    1. Thanks, Holly!! I'm going to really try and make this the year I reach 80% on NetGalley...even though it sounds impossible, I just need to quick requesting new NetGalley books. haha. ;) Thanks for stopping by and for the kind words!

  2. Melanie, I ran across this post when I was looking up the keyword "NetGalley" in my email and this post was in an email from you in January (yes, I still have emails in my inbox from Jan...hmm, that should be another goal!:D). I just had to comment because I have the same problem and goal! I've tried and have actually gotten my 80% badge twice and then *POOF*, it goes away! Haha! It's hard not to request those NetGalley's when you're just dying to read them. Anyways, good luck! Hope you're doing better than me. Rachel :)

    1. Thanks, Rachel!! I've never reached 80%, but I'm slowly making my way there. :)) It is definitely tough to not request new books that sound good, but I think I'm getting *slightly* better at only requesting the ones I'm sure I really want to read. Good luck on your goals, too! Thanks again!
