Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Resolutions

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme held by The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks topic is:

Top Ten 2014 Bookish Resolutions!

1. Read at least 180 books
2. Re-read at least 20 books
3. Start and finish 12 different series
4. Pick two books from my TBR jar every month. This will hopefully help cut down on books I've owned for at least a year.
5. Take part in the Dystopia Reading Challenge
6. Keep up to date on reviewing. I'd like to write more reviews. But I get lazy and than they never get done.
7. Keep control of my Netgalley requesting. It's so easy to request the books, but I also have to get around to reading and reviewing them as well.
8. Number 7 leads into staying on top of reading and reviewing any review books I have. I fell so behind in 2013 and now I need to do some major catch up.
9. Get up some courage to start making videos. I don't necessarily want to get right into the booktube community yet. But at least doing my monthly wrap up or Showcase Sunday via video instead.
10. Lastly and the most important, cut down on my book buying. It's more to do with space and the fact that I have at least 150 un-read books sitting on my shelves. I need to start only buying books that are either part of a series I'm reading or a new release that I'm very excited for and will read as soon as it is in my hands.

Hopefully I can stick to all of these. I know some will give me problems, but I'm going to try my hardest to keep to my resolutions.
Let me know any resolutions you need to stick to as well.

Happy reading!



  1. Love the list! good luck with all your resolutions :)

  2. I think I need to do the whole TBR jar thing as well. I made one last year and never used it.
    Haha, you're not the only one that gets lazy when it comes to writing reviews :)
    Making videos is pretty scary the first time you do it, but you get used to it really easily! Although, talking to a camera is still weird...
    Good luck with your goals/resolutions, Brittany! I hope you manage to stick to them :)

    1. Well you make it seem like you are very on top of writing your reviews. I see you post one almost everyday. :)
      I can definitely understand that. Plus I don't actually have a camera. So it would my crappy webcam. Or even my phone. So I'm even more worried about how horrible the quality will be. But I guess I could try filming something and see how it goes. You're videos are great though! You are very natural in them. :)
      Thanks Sam! Happy 2014!

  3. 180 is a lot, so good luck! I wanted to have a jar but then I wouldn't be in a mood and would just pick so many books until I picked one I liked :D
    And I see NG made every list :D
    Good luck with these!

    1. I did read 192 in 2013. So I'm hoping it will reachable again this year.
      It's true. I do seem to put back picks from the jar quite a bit. I need to just pick and read. There's a reason I bought that book right? Because I want to read it! :)
      Netgalley is a killer. Lol.
      Thanks Ula! Happy 2014!
