Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. Apparently, they are overly fond of list-making and love to share their bookish lists with the rest of us book nerds.  =) We're game.

This week's topic is the Top Ten Goals/Resolutions For 2015 -- bookish, blogging or otherwise!

April's Goals & Resolutions:

Last year when I made goals for my own blog, I knew that I would never accomplish any. I was so ready to just throw in the towel but 2014 ended up being pretty awesome as far as blogging goes. I'm glad I was able to transfer my goals into helping Jen with hers. And now they are ours. <3 It's been a great year and I think 2015 will be as well.

Jen's Goals & Resolutions:

First up, here's how I did with last year's blogging goals:

I carried out the more important items from my list, I think. Sort of. I mean, April and I created the review archive...but it needs a lot of work. As in, all of our reviews still need to be added. Which is why this is still one of my goals for 2015. o_O I was better at being social earlier in the year, but then I got behind on reading, blogging, and all things real life, so my social presence has suffered a bit. Hoping that now that the holidays are pretty much behind us, I'll have more time to catch up with everyone. Also, I am a perpetual book-hoarder. I don't know if I'll ever be able to stop. But I can at least attempt it.

Oh, and for #3, I just ended up asking April to blog with me because it became apparent that my sister was never going to have time for blogging. Probably the best blogging decision I ever made. =)

And now, here are my goals for 2015:

As you'll see, some of my resolutions remain on this list from year to year because I still haven't gotten any better at them or I'm still that far from completing the goal. Here's hoping this year is stress- and drama-free and that we all accomplish whatever we set out to do this year! :D

What are you hoping to accomplish in 2015? Be sure to share a link to your TTT post so we can visit!


  1. Good goals! Be social... Yeah, but people are scary! A review archive is such a good idea, but I've never got around to doing one either. Here's my TTT: https://victoriajaynesbooks.wordpress.com/2014/12/28/top-ten-tuesday-5/
    I know, I'm so nice, helping you be able to talk to other bloggers and comment more :P

  2. "Spread the comment love" is one of my main 2015 goals, but I'm starting now. ;-)

  3. I've not been visiting blogs much lately and I miss it! I love to see what everyone is reading and such but it's so easy to just drop off the planet. I hope I get to see you at events this year because I need to meet you lady! *hint hint* haha.

  4. All of this! I definitely need to cross-review and comment more. I also need to read books that I own before buying more books! There are so many amazing books coming out this year and I fear I am not going to be very good at that! Great list.

    PS... April, I love listening to Audiobooks at work especially rereads!

  5. That's awesome you were able to meet so many goals from last Year, I'm hoping to do the same!! Great List, Check out my

  6. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! That's on my list too. I haven't been yet. Can't wait to go!
    My TTT!

  7. I hear you! My archive list....sadly lacking and then I just deleted it. It's just so hard to keep updated on. I need to cross-review and comment more too.
    Here's mine

  8. I love listening to books I've already read, especially childhood favorites. Actually talking to people at author events is so difficult for me. I'm a classic introvert and talking to strangers pushes my boundaries big time. However, I would love to talk to new people. I do it really well in my head, I'm talking entire conversations! haha.
    Oh and if you can, go visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, it's incredible! I love love love it! :D Great goals!

  9. I've been slacking off cross posting reviews! I caught up on Goodreads though, but for Amazon..oh my goodness I don't think I'll ever catch up haha. I guess I'll just stick with Goodreads. My goal is to read more ARCs and books from my bookshelf because this is just ridiculous!!! I need to get on those books instead of them collecting dust.

  10. Great goals/resolutions! It looks like we have a lot in common!

  11. April, I really like your goals. I think reading more and getting some of those physical books are a great idea! And I like the resolution to be more active on social media :)
