Top Ten Tuesday: 2015 bookish and not-so-bookish resolutions

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:

Top Ten Goals/Resolutions For 2015 — bookish, blogging or otherwise!

Top Ten Tuesday

Happy [almost] New Year, everyone! I don’t usually make new year’s resolutions, but I’m going to list a few bookish and a few general things that I hope to do this year.

Bookish:

  1. Read one book every two months that I wouldn’t normally read – I work in a library, but I can’t usually recommend romance-y type books to my patrons because I don’t read them, so I want to read books by authors like Debbie Macomber or Susan Wiggs and other books I wouldn’t normally pick up. Expanding my horizons.
  2. Read at least 100 books, including novels, comics, children’s books.
  3. Write two reviews a week on my blog. This really isn’t for anyone but myself. I like having a consistent blogging schedule, but I’ve been sort of spotty on book reviews. I hope to do a book review (book, audiobook, comic, children’s book, etc) every Monday and Friday.
  4. Read at least half of the books on my TBR that I already own. I have three full bookshelves full of books I haven’t read. I want to read at least half of them.
  5. Read an entire shelf on my TBR pile before I buy more books. I tend to buy books even when I have way too many I already haven’t read, so I want to try to read some before I buy more. My own book buying ban. We’ll see how it goes.

General:

  1. Go to at least three places I’ve never been before. I am planning to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter next year. I’ve been to Orlando, but not the Wizarding World. Yet.
  2. Make more.
  3. Paint more.
  4. Write more.
  5. Stress less.

What are some of your resolutions?
