Happy New Year, Goals, and Books I'm Most Looking Forward to in 2014

I can't believe it's already 2014!!! I hope you all had a great New Year's Eve and are enjoying New Year's Day! We're spending some time with the family today and having dinner with my parents, siblings and their families. I'm looking forward to it! :)

While we're talking about the new year, I've decided I have a few goals for 2014. Do you want to know what they are? Well, either way I'm going to tell you. ;)
  1. Get back to reviewing more. Review at least two books each week.
  2. Get through all of my review books sent to me personally from the author.
  3. Read and review books from NetGalley and Edelweiss as they come in and keep on top of them.
  4. After I've read my new eARCs, go back and read the ones I haven't gotten to yet.
  5. Cut back on tours I'm participating on to only one each week, two at the most.
  6. Continue building up Prism Book Tours. We have some great tours coming up and I'm looking forward to scheduling more.
  7. Continue commenting on other blogs and getting to know other bloggers.
  8. Have a very awesome Blogoversary in February! :D
  9. Update my review list and cross-posting of reviews.
There are quite a few goals and some are going to be more challenging than others. I am really looking forward to a great year with some fabulous tours and books to feature!

There's a lot going on in this post! If you follow my blog you should have noticed that the last couple of days I've been sharing my favorite books from 2013. Today I'm sharing with you the books that I'm most looking forward to reading in 2014. I was going to keep it to ten, but I just couldn't.
