Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Goals for 2015
Time to ring in the new year – out with the old and in with the new!
Ready or not, 2015 is peeking around the corner, and like every good little blogger under the sun, so many of us are already planning what we’re going to promise
and forget for the upcoming 365 days. New year, new us, new resolutions to shatter and ignore!
This week, Bekka and I will discuss what we wish to improve for the upcoming year for our top ten bookish/blog-related New Year’s Resolutions!
I can’t even really explain why this is happening to me, what is causing it, and what will help solve this particular dilemma in my blog life. I’m in a horrible, nasty slump, and I can’t seem to find the end of this rabbit hole. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping above all that it is just general fatigue, and the start of 2015 will bring some peace and calm required to focus on some issues I am tackling at the moment.
Third year is a charm, right? RIGHT?! Every time I think about picking up a classic, I always say, “Oh, look at this beautiful new release! It needs my love NOW.” The rest is history. I’m going to start with a low, low, low number and claim to read at least 5 this year. At least.

Currently, I am 12 reviews behind. 12. If I double up, that is a month’s worth of reviews that I refuse to write. Time to clean up my review debt and get it over with, and start nabbing some weekend spots for myself to start the first of the year with a clean slate.
I don’t know what was up with me this year, but I was just in a year-long slump basically. I know the new year is just another day but I’m hoping I can psyche myself into getting a head start and starting fresh on my reading.
It was overwhelming when we were doing two books per month (most likely due to that aforementioned slump) but now that we’re doing Forgotten Fridays just once per month, I’m hoping to participate my ass off.
There are a ton of signings in Asheville and I’d really like to get to more. That means some great giveaways, gifts for friends, and meeting more awesome authors.
I AM SO BAD WITH THIS. 2015 is the year to remedy my series problem.
Find balance in my reading – as far as reading things I know I’ll love and balancing that with riskier, out of my comfort zone choices.
Finding balance between real life and blogging – I felt like I worked my ass off in 2014 and I’d like to dedicate a little more time to my real life relationships and endeavors.
Find balance between reading and writing – I’d like to make writing a regular habit and not just something I do in November, but I always feel like I need to be reading reading reading all the time for the blog.
Find balance between new releases and rereads – I used to love rereading so I’d like to do more of that again next year.
What are your own bookish goals? Are your reading habits going to change in 2015? Will you make some much-needed improvements to your blog?
