New Year Book Tag

I found this New Year's tag over at Rosie Writes Things, but it was found on Pretty Deadly Reviews (original source YouTube - Heather from Bookables). Hope you'll participate too... it's a fun little tag about your new year's goals. I've been trying to figure out a new routine for getting blog posts written. So far, I have not figured that out yet and have been blogging at night if I haven't fallen asleep yet and weekends when the toddler naps (like right now). I figure a tag post here and there are fun and easy to put together so today is a tag! 

1. How many books do you plan on reading in 2018?
My Goodreads goal is 60. I figure one per week, plus a few extras. I'd love it if I could get to over 100 again like I did years ago, but with working so much and having a toddler it doesn't seem possible to me. I'm so tired all of the time. Audiobooks have helped so you never know... I could surpass my goal of 60 this year. 

2. Name 5 books you didn't get to in 2017, but want to make a priority in 2018.
*When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
*Two Nights by Kathy Reichs
*A Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan
*The Doll House by Phoebe Morgan
*The Crowns of Croswald by D.E. Night

3. What genre do you want to read more of in 2018?
 I've been on a thriller/mystery kick lately and I think I'd like to continue with it. I have quite a lot on my wishlist so it makes sense to keep going until I decide to switch it up again.

4. Name 3 non-book goals for 2018.
*Get organized. My office needs to be completed. I moved the furniture around, but I still need to dig through everything to purge, donate, label and organize.
* Spend more time outside with the toddler this year. She's older now, so I think it will be more fun to do a lot of outdoor things. I'm thinking swingset, kiddie pool, sprinkler, playing in the snow - you know all the fun stuff!
*Make time for extended family. I want my daughter to know her cousins and her aunts, uncles and grandparents. She sees hubby's side more because we live close by, but my side seems to be hit and miss lately. I want to make the time to visit more.

5. What's a book that you've had forever that you still need to read?
Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell - it was my Mom's copy and I really need to read it, but it's so many pages (over 1,000) and I just can't get myself to sit and read it. I need to make this a priority at some point. 

6. One word that you hope your new year will be.
I picked the word CHANGE for my new year post at the beginning of January. I think it's a good word. I want to see a lot of change this year. Possibly work related, but definitely family related. Change is good even if we don't think so at first. Time to embrace it!

What do you have in store for 2018? What word would you pick for 2018? Recommend some thriller/mystery books to me.
