Then she forgot how to breathe."

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Goals/Resolutions For 2014

*in no particular order
 1. Publish my book in some format
2. Reading goal set at 150--hoping to top it like I did in 2013

3. Meet new authors
4. Hopefully finish writing my second book

5. Try to meet new people--I'm kind of a homebody and read too much, need to get out more! ;)

Can't think of much...
