Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new topic/top ten list and invite everyone to share their own answers. I'm so obsessed with lists - so it makes perfect sense that I'd love this feature!
Top Ten Resolutions for 2015
1. Read 150 books.
For my Goodreads Reading Challenge, I decided to go with 150 books this year. I read pretty far above that number last year, but I'd rather this number be something that I feel I can easily reach!
2. Read one non-fiction book - that I already own - per month.
I continue buying a lot of non-fiction, even though I don't read it nearly as often as I do fiction. This is almost the set goal I set last year, except this year I need to focus more on reading non-fiction that I already own.
3. Finish 12 series.
I set a goal to finish seven series in 2014, but I'd already met that goal by June. I'm increasing it this year so that I'm aiming to finish one series per month (just like Danielle's challenge). We'll see how I do!
4. Request and/or accept no more than 36 review books all year.
I've been talking with Alexa about reading fewer review books in 2015, and we have something fun planned to keep each other on track. And I'm aiming for no more than three per month - 36 for the whole year.
5. Read at least five debut novels.
Once again, some of my favorite books in 2014 were debut novels. It's important to me to give new authors a shot! I almost set the goal higher, but I think re-reading and backlist will be more of a priority for me.
6. Re-read 36 books (three per month).
I'm hoping to re-read way more than one book per month, but this is my bare minimum goal. I used to re-read all the time, but I've slacked off since I started blogging. I'm declaring 2015 "The Year of Re-Reading."
7. Host one reading challenge, and participate in at least two!
I epically failed at this resolution last year. However, I'm hosting The Re-Read Challenge with Kelly so hopefully I'll be more successful at this challenge! I love re-reading and can't wait to focus on it more in 2015. And I already know what reading challenges I'll be joining: Dive Into Diversity and Flights of Fantasy.
8. Write one discussion post per month.
Discussion posts are my favorite to write! I still have a huge list of things I want to write about, so I don't think I'll have a problem maintaining this pace throughout the year. Plus, discussion posts are my favorite to read, too!
9. Leave five comments per week on other blogs.
I like a low-stress commenting goal. There were weeks last year where I didn't always leave five, but there were other weeks where I left 20+ comments. I think it balances out! I want to comment while still keeping it fun.
10. Start a new feature on my blog.
In addition to the challenge I'm co-hosting, I actually have two new features in the works, and I'm so excited about both. I'm also making a few changes to existing features - it was time for a little refresh!
