- I started working for Vancouver Writers Fest this year so one of my bookish resolutions is to do my best at my job which involves books and writers and readers.

- To invest in new bookcases
- To finish all the series that are actually complete and waiting for me to read them.
- Finish reading Nafiza’s novel, lol.
- Finish writing literally any story of any length because I haven’t been able to do that in a while.
