Feature and Follow Friday - 2014 Bookish Resolutions

Happy Friday everyone! This week's topic for Feature and follow Friday is: Blogging resolutions for the new year. So I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I did almost the exact same post on Top Ten Tuesday a few days ago... so I hate to simply repost the same thing, but my goals haven't changed, so here it goes:


1. Read 65 books. I read 60 in 2013, so let's see if I can beat that!

2. Finish all series that I've begun (or read all books released, if series isn't finished), except for ones that I have decided not to continue with. I have a nasty habit of starting book 1 of a series, then not getting to the next one until months later.

3. Read 2 classics. I read one last year, so I'm going to try to beat that while still going easy on myself.

4. Read 1 non-fiction book. I had a goal of 5 for last year and didn't read any. I am going to try to at least read 1 and see how it goes.

5. Never read more than one book in between series books. Another attempt to thwart that nasty habit of never finishing a series. I want to start reading them back to back, or at least with only one non-related book in between.

6. Get my physical TBR below 40 books by the end of the year and maintain it. This is to exercise self-control over my excessive book-buying habit.

7. Not to force myself to read things I don't want to read, especially in a series that I'm not interested in. More specifically, I will try the first two books in a series and if I don't like it after the first two, I will not force myself to go on.

8. "Complete" my Review Archive by reading a book by authors whose last names begin with letters I haven't listed under yet. For example, I haven't read and reviewed any books by an author with the last name beginning with the letter A. I shall rectify this.

9. Finish the A Song of Ice and Fire series. This may fall under 'Finish All Series,' but in the event that I don't accomplish that goal, I still wish to finish this particularly long and difficult series.

10. Read 25,000 pages. This is kind of a random 'lets see if I can do it' thing. I read over 22,000 last year and since my book goal this year exceeds last, I'm hoping to surpass pages as well. We shall see.

What are your resolutions for this year?! I can't wait to hear about them all!
