Reading and Blogging Goals for 2018

Happy New Year, everyone! I'm trying to start 2018 off right by actually posting, LOL. 2017 was the least productive reading and blogging year I've had since I started blogging, and I didn't even bother putting together a year-end post because there was hardly anything to look back at. :\ That was last year, though, and it's time to begin with a clean slate:

  • Read 25 books. I'm determined, determined to complete my Goodreads Reading Challenge this year!
  • Read 15 minutes every day. I think I finally need to accept that unless I schedule reading time in my planner, it's not going to happen. I also really struggled with finding the motivation to just pick up a book for most of last year. I'm hoping that success with short reading sessions will build some reading momentum.
  • Get back to regular blogging. Not only did I slack off with reading in 2017, but I also slacked off big time with blogging and feel really out of touch with the blogosphere. I'm thinking of participating in a meme like Top Ten Tuesday again to reconnect.
  • Reach 300 reviews on Goodreads. I thought I was going to hit this number last year, but alas, I did not. I'm 14 reviews away from 300 and am going to make it happen in 2018!

Good luck to all of you with your 2018 reading/blogging goals and challenges! I'm cheering you on! :D


  1. Happy New Year!!! Glad to see you back.Did you hear that Game of Thrones won't be back until 2019? Gah what will I do? lol oh well.

    Hope you're having a great start to the new year. :)

    1. Happy New Year to you, too, Greg! :D The wait for the final season of GoT- ugggghhhhhh! And isn't it supposed to be even shorter than last season, but with longer episodes? The episodes had better be longer, LOL. It'd be nice if we had, say, The Winds of Winter to at least read in the meantime, but I doubt that's going to happen. :/
