TOP TEN TUESDAY: Goals and Resolutions for 2014


Hosted by the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish.

~Goals and Resolutions for 2014~

1. Read 200+ books
I read exactly 200 last year and I want to at least match that in 2014.

2. Clear out TBR shelf by half
Always a goal and one I never reach, but I'm still determined to try.

3. Read Ilona Andrews's Kate Daniels series.
I have had this on my list of to-reads for years and I will get to it this year!

4. Use the library more
A way to keep the size of my TBR shelf down plus libraries are awesome.

5. Try more debut authors
I tend to stick to authors I know and I want to branch out more.

6. When in a reading rut, re-read rather than trying to push through it with other books.
Hoping to keep ruts down this year by re-reading my favorites.

7. Complete all reading challenges
I was careful about what challenges I signed up for this year so I can be more successful with them.

8. Don't go overboard with Netgalley/Edelweiss requests
I just get too excited when I see certain books that I overdo it sometimes.

9. Write a review for every book read
They won't all be on my blog, but there should be at least a few sentences on Goodreads.

10. Comment on other blogs more often
Another goal I always try to accomplish.  I did pretty good last year and hope to do even better in 2014.

  2. I have so many of those same goals! I really need to curb my NetGalley downloading because I'm lucky to read half the books. :( But I love rereading my favorite books when I'm in a rut. :)
    Good luck with your goals this year!

  3. I totally agree with writing reviews for each book you read! I only reviewed about half the books I read last year and I really wish I had kept up with it! Great list! Hope 2014 is great for you :)

  4. re-reading always helps me get out of a reading slump. I'll find a book that I love and is a major comfort read, and it's so relaxing. Also, I also definitely need to be very selective with which books I request from Netgalley and Edelweiss. Sometimes it's so easy to get carried away.

  6. Great goals! I really want to complete all of my reading challenges this year, especially since I did so poorly on them last year. And I really like your idea about mini-reviews on Goodreads!

  7. I am totally with you on 2,4,9 and 10! Oh man! 200 books! Crazy! Good luck though!

  8. Great goals, I can relate to many of them :) I was thinking of how many book I want to read this year but decided not to set a goal for this for the moment. 200 books sounds huge! I haven't joined any challenges yet but since I prefer than shorten than a whole year, I am sure I will get to participate in some :) Good luck on achieving your goals!

  9. TBR by half!! Wow, now that is a goal. And you are right libraries are awesome. Don't know what I'd do without them.

  10. Nice job on 200 books! I'm still struggling around the 125 mark, haha. I think I'm going to read a few more novellas this year just to give myself a bump >.> *cheating*

    YES! *locks you in a room with Kate Daniels* Even if the first one or two don't amaze you, keep going because they get better and better!
