Daily Prompt: Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution that you kept?

Kind of. Last year, my resolution was to read at least 12 books, one a month. I read 20 books last year. I cheated and included children’s books and some harlequin novels. But, I completed my resolution.

In case you’re wondering which books I read*:

  3. Married by Monday by Catherine Bybee
  4. The Martian by Andy Weir
  5. Double Helix by Nancy Werlin
  6. Modern Romance by Azis Ansari
  7. The Hungry Fox by Kitty Barry
  8. Wife by Wednesday by Catherine Bybee

My goal for 2016 is to read 12 books but I aspire to read 24 books. Hopefully, I’ll get there.
