2016 Resolutions Reflection


As the 2016 year is coming to a close I thought I should reflect on how well I did on my resolutions. I did a 2016 Resolutions tag that you can find here and I reflected halfway through the year which you can find here.

My Bookish Resolutions were to read 135 books and log every book I read on Goodreads

I didn’t quite reach 135 books, I’ve read 113 so far, but I have logged every book I read in 2016 on Goodreads.

My blogging resolutions were to reach 200, and then maybe 300 followers, get better at graphics, write more discussion posts and host a giveaway.

I reached 200, then 300, then 400 and now am close to 500 followers, so check mark for that! I don’t have time to spend on graphics these days so I don’t know how much better I’ve gotten at them. I don’t think I’ve done that many discussion posts this year, but I did host a birthday giveaway in honor of my turning 16 in September.

My career and academic resolutions were to stop procrastinating, study more, not stress too much about school, pass my lifeguard exam, and get a job.

Yikes, I haven’t stopped procrastinating, or stressing, or studying more…I did pass my lifeguard exam and had a summer lifeguarding job, something I plan to do again this summer.

My personal resolutions were to write more, work out, watch Outlander, game of thrones, season 6 of Pretty Little Liars, stop biting my nails, and get a boyfriend jk. 

I still don’t think I write enough. My working out is decent but could be better. I watched season 1 of Outlander and am nearly done with Season 2. I got the Game of Thrones book for the Holidays and am going to read it and watch the tv show in 2017 hopefully. I also finished all the seasons of Pretty Little Liars and am waiting for the second part of the last season. I kind of stopped biting my nails. I also put the boyfriend thing on in 2016 as a joke kind of, but I actually did date two guys in 2016 so check mark haha.

And that is all! I liked having these resolutions to reflect on my year, so I think I’ll do a similar post soon for 2017.

Let me know how well you did on your 2016 resolutions! (Or not well, that’s fine too)

Stay awesome Sassenachs!-Calliope Fraser

And there you go! Congrats if you made it all the way down here! I apologize if there are any mistakes genre wise, please correct me if there are

Did we read a lot of the same books this year!? Let me know in the comments!


P.S. I love how my blog originally started as YA and the tagline still is YA and General Life, both looking at what i read, i realize that nearly half of the books i read were adult books ha ha

P.P.S. If i were to have a giveaway would you prefer a 2016 pre order or an already released book?
