Hey everyone! I hope you guys are all doing well and are having a fantastic start to 2018 so far! Today I am here to talk about my goals for the year of 2018!

So last year, I posted a video on my YouTube channel talking about the goals I had set for myself for 2017 (you can find the video here!). So, since you guys really seemed to enjoy that video, that I would go ahead and post another set of goals for this year!

This year, at least in my personal opinion is going to be a year of change. I have a lot of things going on in my personal life with college and a ton of other things that I won’t go into right now so those things are going to be more of a priority than ever before this year. So reading isn’t going to be my highest priority this year. It doesn’t mean that I won’t be reading at all. Just not as much as in the past year and a half.

So with that being said, I have split my goals up into 4 sections: reading, channel/blog/social media, writing, and personal.

So without further-a-do, here are my goals for this year:


  • Goodreads Reading challenge: 25 books
  • Read more diversely
  • Get back on track with my review books (I apologize if I still haven’t gotten to your book! They will be read this year if it is the last thing I do!)
  • Read more Ebooks
  • Read more audiobooks
  • Read 10 thrillers/mysteries
  • Read ARCs ahead of release date
  • Do some buddy reads
  • Read more local authors (authors from Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island! Got to support my fellow New England authors!)
  • Start a Goodreads book club? (let me know if this is something you guys are interested in!)
  • Use a TBR Jar to help me figure out my TBR books for that month

Channel/Blog/Social Media

  • Hit 2 thousand subscribers on YouTube (if you guys could make this happen, I would be forever grateful!)
  • Be more interactive with my followers/subscribers
  • Do 2 reviews a month on YouTube
  • Do a collab
  • Be on Book Battles (a jeopardy style game show about books on YouTube)
  • Go to Bookcon?
  • Go to Vidcon?


  • Finish second draft of my book
  • Start looking for an agent and/or publisher


  • Lose 50 pounds (I have struggled with my weight for years and this I going to be the year that that changes!)
  • Get a job (I’ve been looking for one for months)
  • Learn a language (either Greek or Spanish)
  • Work on my personal channel- this is a YouTube channel I had for 4 and a half years before I started the 2 I have now. This is something that I have wanted to do for over a year now so I have slowly been working on for the past couple of months. I will mention it in a blog post as well as a video when it goes live!

So that is all my goals for this year. Of course these are all subject to change but I think, as of right now, that I will be able to accomplish most of them by the end of the year.

Be sure to let me know what you guys’s goals are for this year! I would love to know!

Good luck to all of you this year!
