Read 30 Books!

Screen Shot 2018-01-04 at 16.56.29Last year I read a total of 27 books. My plan for last year was to read 30 books. So I have decided my goal for this year will be 30 books again. I have never read 30 books in one year and to finally get there will be a big accomplishment for me. To get this goal I plan on reading at least 2 books every month. It helps that I have go back into audiobooks again. Hopefully I read 30 books this year maybe even more than that.

Go to YALC!

I really hope I get the opportunity to go to YALC this year. After seeing a lot of my blogger friends attend last year I decided to make it my goal to go in 2018! It all depends on if I can get the time off work and have the money to afford tickets, accommodation and transport. I will be putting money aside every month to put towards YALC tickets. I really hope I get to experience YALC this year!

Meet more bloggers and go to more blogger events!

I met so many bloggers in 2017 and I hope to meet even more in 2018! In order to do this I plan on going to more blogger events, more book events and speaking to more people about blogging. I feel like I was quiet in terms of interacting with bloggers in 2017 and plan on interacting with blogger a lot more in 2018. I am going to plan on finding bloggers to join in on guest posts. If you are interested in writing a guest post or would like me to write a guest post for you please let me know (

Re-read up to book 4 in the Harry Potter series!

I have been trying to re-read the Harry Potter series for a few years now. I always seem to start a book and then put it down to never pick it up again. This year I plan on reading up to Harry Potter and the Goblet of FireI love the Harry Potter series and really want to delve into the world again. I just got the first three book in audiobook form for Christmas so I will certainly be listening to them!

Reach 1500 across my blog and Twitter!

I am currently at 1000 followers across both platforms. I am going to try my best this year to reach 1500 if not surpass that. I am going to try and schedule tweets, join in more on Twitter chats. Also, I plan on posting everyday in January and after that at least 4 times a week. I hope that I may even be able to do a few months this year with a blog post everyday.

  1. These are great goals! I went to YALC last year and I would love to go again in 2018 although I’ll probably be able to only do one day (I was lucky enough to do all 3 last year!). Good luck with your 2018 goals 🙂


      1. Yes, I absolutely loved it! Yeah, it was pretty expensive, but I thought it was totally worth it to do it at least once 🙂 I don’t think I’ll be able to do all three days for quite a few years now, but I’m hoping to do at least Saturday or Sunday next year 🙂

  2. I really loved all of these goals! I want to read 30 books in 2018 as well. I wish I lived closer to other bloggers to meet them. Happy new year!

  3. I will try and read 30 books as well – but I am currently studying/working and have a baby due in June – so I don’t know how successful I will be!

  4. These are great goals! I went to YALC for the first time last year, but only for one day, and I’d love to be able to go again this year!
