Bookish Resolution Challengereport2015 Bookish Resolutions Progress Report lets you check in every month to tell us know how you are doing with your Bookish Resolutions and keeps you moving closer to your goal. We look forward to cheering you on to success!

My Progress Report:

Goal #1 ~ Get My Netgalley Ratio to 65%

  • Jan – I am at 52%
  • Feb – I am at 61% (I realized I never rated and sent feedback to some books)
  • March – I am at 62%
  • April – I am at 61% (I added a few books so my ratio went down lol)
  • May – I am at 60% (I am going the wrong way)
  • June – I am at 61% (I went back up)
  • July – I am at 63% (I am SHOCKED since I just requested like a mad woman)
  • August – I am at 60% (LOL I guess all my requesting caught up with me)
  • September – I am at 60% (because I just can’t stop)

• Goal #2 ~ Read 65 Books this year

  • Jan – I have read 5 books so far
  • Feb – I have read 10 books so far
  • March – I have read 19 books so far
  • April –  I have read 28 books so far
  • May – I have read 35 Books so far
  • June – I have read 41 books so far
  • July – I have read 48 books so far
  • August – I have read 54 books so far
  • September – I have read 65 books so far 

Goal #3 ~ Visit/Comment 30 Blogs a Month

  • Jan – I was able to do the 30 however I would like to spread it out more instead of doing 3 days visiting 10 blogs.
  • Feb- I was able to visit 30 but again I did them all kind of in one shot, I would really like to spread this out more and even visit a ton more blogs, stupid real life keeps getting in the way lol
  • March – I didn’t do so good this month with my blogging break and nervous breakdown (that’s what I am calling it) so I will try and do double next month if not at least visit 3 blogs a day
  • April – This was a bad month for me, my blogging break has made me still in a slump and I wasn’t able to visit as many as I would have liked, I also had a few family crisis to take care of but I am hoping next month will be better 
  • May – As most of you know I have been dealing with some serious family issues and was unable to visit people this month. Fingers crossed things get better soon and I will be back to visiting in no time.
  • June – I was able to visit a few people but I am not back to visiting 100% but I seriously am working on it  🙂
  • July – I was able to visit quite a few but sadly didn’t keep track but YAY!
  • August – I am organized and ready to get back to this, Sorry for being a shitty friend.
  • September – Slowly getting away from being a shitty friend 🙂

Goal #4 ~ Read 20 Books Already on my Kindle

  • Jan – I read 1 so far that was on my kindle before this challenge started. 
  • Feb – I have read 4 so far.
  • March – I have read 6 so far
  • April – I have read 7 so far
  • May – I have read 10 so far (I think)
  • June – I have read 12 so far
  • July – I have read 15 so far
  • August – I have read about 16 so far (I think)
  • September – I have lost track, so I am thinking I am still at 16

Goal #5 ~ Lose 10lbs or More

  • Jan – Not doing so good on this yet but I still have time.
  • Feb – Not doing so good still on this but soon
  • March – Food is just so delicious and I am really trying  
  • April – As I sit here eating Ice Cream  I am realizing this is not going as good as I hoped ?
  • May – 5 months in and I have come to the realization that I am not good at dieting. Next year my goal is to gain 10lbs, I can totally do that with no problem.
  • June – Guess what?!?! I had the most delicious Pumpkin Pie Gelato the other day it was amazing!
  • August – Did you know Talenti makes an amazing Caramel Butter Pecan Gelato. OMG I could eat the entire thing in one sitting. (I’m eating it as I type this) 
  • September – This losing weight stuff is totally overrated…not really my fault they make food so delicious! 🙂



Thanks for stopping by!
Have an amazing day!

    • I think next years bookish resolutions will be a lot easier. More options and you get points for getting half way instead of completing .

  2. I’m giggling out loud over your updates for 3, 4 and 5, Michelle! Especially 5! Indeed, it is not our fault they make food so yummy! *hahaha* I was thinking I’m glad I didn’t set a percentage goal for Netgalley because I’d be failing for sure. I’m happy to have raised it ~3% so far and my rating is still abysmal. And you are *not* a shitty friend. At all. Sometimes life gets in the way of being present in the blogosphere and friends *always* understand this. 😀 (I’ve been sick and therefore absent the last several days) You’re making good progress, in my opinion. And I’m absolutely with you if you decide to chuck #5 out the window. Yeah…that’s what friends are for. 😉
