Top Ten Tuesday: 2015 Resolutions

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's theme is my Resolutions for 2015.  Here we go!

1. Cut back on the picture books.  I read an insane amount of picture books in 2014.  Some were for school, others were for work.  I need to remind myself that I really don't need to read all of the starred reviews.  

2. Read more middle grade novels.  After trying to come up with some 2014 middle grade releases, I realized I had only read a handful the entire year.  I would like to read more of a variety of age ranges to keep up with readers advisory.

3. Read all of my book club books this year.  I was pretty bad in 2014 with school, but I will do better!

4. I will not let my Goodreads To-Read shelf exceed 300 books.  It's close right now, but I really need to start reading a lot more now that school has ended.

5. Listen to at least two classics this year.  I really want to listen to Little Women and maybe Persuasion.  

6. Make and stick to a schedule when it comes to posting.  I would love to have a MWF schedule with Tuesdays open for Top Ten Tuesday and Thursdays being a freebie.  

7. I'd like to create my own feature.  For example, Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner has New to the Queue.  I'd love to do something unique, but I feel like everything has been done.  Any suggestions?

8. Keep up with my 2015 reading challenges.  This means scheduling update posts, etc.  

9. Work out at least 3x a week.  It could be anything, but at least 20 minutes of getting my heart pumping!

10. Try at least one new recipe a month.  This was a semi-resolution last year.  I just need to be more consistent when it comes to finding recipes, trying them out, and saving them if I enjoy them.


  1. Great goals! I have some of the same ones.

  2. Great goals. I always think maybe I'll start a meme, but....I just can't think of anything original either. Best of luck to you.

    Here's mine

  3. Good luck with your goals in 2015! Here's my link to my TTT for the week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2014/12/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten.html

  4. Oh my gosh! The limiting of the GR To-Read shelf is something I should definitely consider doing. I have a bad habit of just adding them on continuously. :/
