New Year Goals Make For A Better Birdie
So I figured this year I'd make some resolutions and stick to them. Which, for me, is a pretty monumental deal. Not because I usually make and break my goals, but because I never really make any to begin with.
But I think this year it'd be good to have some resolutions, especially blogging / reading wise. There are so many books I want to read in 2014, so this will be a list of all of my Reading Resolutions for this year, including some awesome challenges I'm going to be participating in!
To discover awesome debuts, so new authors can share in the spotlight! The goal is for 12, but I think I can step it up a notch.
To clear the dust-bunnies out of my TBR list. This'll be a great way of forcing me to focus on some oldies I've been pining for. Aiming for the 31 - 40 Sweet Summer Fling on this one!
To read 100 (fiction) books this year. This actually works out quite nicely because it ties in with my GR Reading Challenge goal, so I'm twice as determined. It'll be really cool to see what books everyone is reading.
To FINISH as many book series as possible in 2014. I can't wait for this one - there are SO MANY series I've started that I want to finish and so many more I'm yet to check out that I can't wait to stick my nose in. Going for the Gold Badge of 7 - 11 series for this one!
- Reach my Goodreads Reading Challenge goal - this something I'm really excited to do, since it will be my first full year book blogging and I want to read my little heart out.
- Write down my favourite quotes in my notebook - I have most of them on my GR page, but I really want to make a quote scrapbook. I know a lot of people do this and I think it's so cool.
- Read more outside my comfort zone / discover new genres & authors - I discovered so many new authors and books I never would have thought of reading in 2013. It was a great year for me book-wise, so I plan to really branch out in 2014 and smash through my comfort zone.
- Write notes as I read for future reviews - I find that sometimes I forget things I really want to discuss in my reviews and it's only when I read another blogger's review that I'm like 'OH YEAH, I WANTED TO TALK ABOUT THAT TOO! DAMN!' So I'm resolving to make some notes while I read so I can make my reviews more in-depth and won't have to smack myself on the head when I realise I've forgotten something.
Did you guys make any resolutions this year? Are you going to take part in some blogging challenges? Let me know; I'd love to hear what your plans for the New Year are! Let's make 2014 awesome.
