2014 Wrap up + Goals for 2015

Happy New Year and I hope all of you had a great year and I wish you all luck for next year!

What I accomplished this year:

This year I accomplished my reading goal of reading 100 books, which I am very proud of. In fact I read 101. I listed them all at the end in the order in which they were read.

In terms of my blogging, I am quite surprised by what I succeeded this year for it. This has been my first year of blogging and I did not expect this turn out. Thank you to all of my followers and to everyone who has ever commented on any of my posts. You make my day!

 

Goals for 2015:

For blogging, definitely get a better schedule set up. I have a load of books to post reviews for that I read in 2014 which I labeled in the massive list of books read on which books you should expect to see a review from in the coming months. And I definitely want to start to reply to every comment and return the favor as well. So basically I am going to try harder to become more involved in the book blogging community.

For reading goals, I found this list into which I am going to use to help broaden my reading list for this year. My brother found it for me from this POPSUGAR website. There is a printout of it that you can use to check off the books as you go along. If you have any suggestions of books for me to read that belong in any of these categories (preferably the tricky ones) please comment below! As well as following this list I made the Goodreads goal to read 150 books this year.
