TTT 1/07/14: Top Ten Goals/Resolutions For 2014

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Broke and the BookishToday's TTT Topic is: Top Ten Goals/Resolutions For 2014 (bookish, not bookish or a blend)

1. Read at least 50 books. I just barely met my goal of 50 books in 2013, which really disappointed me, as I read over 110 in 2012. So this year, I'm going to try my best to read 50 or more books. 

2. Review 20+ books. I really want to review all my favorite books that I read before this blog was started. Books like THG series, Percy Jackson, and Beautiful Creatures. 

3. Learn a new instrument. I've been wanting to learn either the bass guitar or the ukulele for quite a while. 

4. Find new ways to organize my bookshelf. Forgive me if I sound a little insane. I'm actually really obsessed with organizing my bookshelf and as of now I only have several ways to organize it:

  • alphabetically, authors last name
  • color (ROYGBIV)
  • alphabetically, title
  • genre and series
  • genre and color
  • genre and alphabetically
  • vertically
  • hortizontally
  • rating (most to least enjoyed)

5. Volunteer at the SPCA. I really love dogs and cats but don't have my own pet because my dad is allergic to them. Hopefully I'll be able to help out at the local SPCA this summer.

6. Catch up on Grey's Anatomy. I NEED TO CATCH UP.

7. Get to know my cobloggers more. AMANDA! KRYSTAL! We coblog together and I know we have fairly similar reading tastes and watch a lot of the same shows, but that's really all I know about you guys. I really hope to talk to you guys more over this year. :)

8. Reread Percy Jackson and the Olympians. It's been forever since I've hung out with Percy. I think it's about time for a reread.

9. Concentrate more in math class. I keep dozing off in math class or get really distracted by my grumbling stomach. (I have math right before lunch). Note to self: eat bigger breakfasts.


What are your New Year resolutions?

    I love how mixed your list is. About your reading goal, I've found that you'll surpass your expectations when you don't stress about it. I had to lower my goal too and it bummed me out, but it's less stress in the end.

  2. I really like your list :) And I agree with Aly: people usually do better when we're not under pressure. Also, I don't see why we should turn something we love into something stressful.

    This is my TTT:

  3. Loving your list! :-) I'm trying not to put too much pressure on myself this year about how much I read or review.

    I love these, they made me laugh. I started reading Percy Jackson years ago and I keep buying more of the books but still haven't gotten to the end yet and I REALLY WANT TO!
    I always used to have grumbling tummy in school. My teacher gave me a banana from her lunch once because apparently I was being distracting!
    Good luck with your resolutions! :)

    How cool that you want to volunteer at the SPCA! Good luck with your resolutions. Have a great week.

  6. I am trying to focus on getting more of my old reviews on my blog too. Good luck!

  7. I <3 twitter. It is my time waster/book blogger chatting of choice. :) And I like the idea of reviewing books from your pre-blogging days. Maybe I'll have to give that a try!
    Good luck with your goals this year. :)

  8. LOVE your list and I totally agree that we should get to know each other and talk more!! And I recently started Greys Anatomy so I also have A TON of catching up to do!

  9. I'd like to think that number 8 was inspired by moi
