2015 Goals

I was an overachiever about a year ago. I was reading 10-12 books a month and figured I could easily read 100 books in a year. But I forgot about this little thing I had to plan called a wedding and this big thing I was buying called a house. So I read 75 books in 2014, which wasn't too shabby given that I had little spare time the last half of the year. It still kept in line with my goal to read more than the previous year (71 books in 2013).

FAIL. But so close!

I also had all these little goals like completing a TBR Pile Challenge which I failed at miserably (8/12 books... okay, not TOO bad) and blacking out on Book Bingo (which I was ONE New Release away from doing!). I also had these little goals like, "Re-read 10 Book from School" and "Read 5 Book-to-Movie Adaptations and See the Movie!". Ummmm, no. I mean, I think I completed these but I just didn't have time really think about it. 2015 is the year of simplicity...

I set myGoodReads reading goal to 80, but technically I only need to read 76 to reach my goal. 

Blogging better means a lot of things, but one major goal I want to do is to cross post my reviews at least between GoodReads and Amazon for every review I do past, present and future. I can get really lazy with this. I also want to make sure I create quality content and interact in the book blogging community more. It's one of the biggest reasons I wanted to blog about books, so I need to put the time in. 

Having solid but simple goals make the transition into the new year much more palatable, especially if I'm going to be changing this whole blog around. 

What are your goals for the new year (reading and otherwise)?

  1. I need to work more on cross posting as well. I'm so hit or miss with it. My goals are up on the blog if you are interested.
