Top Ten Book Goals For 2014

I already mentioned a few of my 2014 reading and blogging goals here, but I’ll expand a bit more in this post.

What’s your top reading/blogging goal for the year?

Top Ten Book Goals For 2014

top ten posts 2013 read breathe relax

1Read 70 books- Last year I surpassed my reading goal, so I upped my goal this year. We should seriously be proud of ourselves no matter how many books we read. The average American hasn’t read a book since high school…

2Choose books outside my usual fantasy/scifi genre- Like contemporary, classics, new adult. I desperately need to mix it up. Which is another reason I’m thankful for my book club.

3Launch new blog design- WOOHOO!! RBR is almost 3 years old, so I think that it’s high time for a more sophisticated design for this toddler blog.

4Attend BEA in May- AH! I went to BEA in 2011, and I cannot wait to go again and GRAB ALL THE BOOKS!!

5Read at least two indie books- This is long overdue. If you have any reccs, I’d love to hear them!

6Make more videos- I’ve only made a few videos, and I think my problem is thinking of topics where a video is actually helpful. I’ll think of something…The downside is seeing more of my awkward self in action. :)

7Continue to challenge my creativity- I love thinking of new types of posts and features and info to post on the blog. I hope you’ve been entertained so far, and I plan to keep it coming.

8Clean out my bookshelf- Whether it’s through donating or recycling or by doing giveaways (heyo!), I need to get rid of books. I’m literally three layers deep right now, and it got so embarrassing I put a tablecloth over my bookshelf to cover the insanity. Help!

    Tammy Blackwell’s Destiny Binds is a really fun indie YA urban fantasy and is extremely well edited and funny!

    What a dream 70 books would be! I maybe manage 50. Maybe. Hats off to you!
