Top Ten Tuesday!


Top Ten Tuesday with Mandy!!


This week's topic is:
Mandy's Top Ten Reading Goals for 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke And The Brookish. Who doesn't love lists. They make life easy! And fun!! It's always a never ending topic.


I've been working on my goal's for days so it's still a rough idea subject to changes.

1. Complete all the challenges I've accepted for the year. (Challenges) So far I have 12 that I'm doing but who knows that could always change. I have issues saying no. 

2. I want to read more books then I did last year my goal for this year is 200 but I would love to read more. Plus if I can make a dent on my TBR list that would be awesome. 

3. I want to be more social. I've been a lurker forever long before I started to blog. I want to be more active in my groups on goodreads as well as more active on blogs I follow. I feel like I'm missing out on meeting some awesome fellow bloggers. 

4. I plan to redesign The Reading Diaries it's only six months old but I want to make it more personal. I've been playing with Photoshop for a few months so who knows maybe one day soon we will see a change. I even have my dad working on logo's and artwork.  

5. I want to post more daily. I love to write so my blogging is a great outlet for me but I don't feel I do it enough so I'm going to try harder to make a better effort. 

6. I want to catch up on all the series I'm behind with like: Anita Blake, Stephanie Plum, MacKayla Lane, The Argeneau's, just to name a few. 

7. I want to read more of the physical books I have sitting on my shelf my hubby keeps asking if I've read when I get new books in the mail. I also want to start reading more of the awesome looking kindle freebies I keep picking up but never get too. 

8. I want to limit the number of reviews I accept, as well as the number of tours I join. I tend to overload so then I'm cramming books in and don't get to enjoy them as much as I should. However it's really hard for me because I just can't seem to say no when I get a request. 

Well I could sit here all day I'm sure but these 8 are a great start for me. 

What are your Top Ten this week?

  1. I have to join less tours, but I feel bad if I know an author isn't going to have many stops on his/her tour.
    Good list!

  2. Great goals! 200 is way beyond me. I'm shooting for 100. There once was a time when I read over 150 or more and I hope to get back to that. I also want to catch up on the backlist of some of my favorites. I've been reading too many books for commitments and neglecting my tbr pile. Best of luck!

  3. I know what you mean about being more social. I hope to achieve that this year too!

  4. Great list! I too should work on commenting - it's always an encouragement to me when someone takes the time to visit my blog, so I know it must be to others as well. Happy reading in 2013!

    Best of luck!
