Need help getting from beginner to intermediate programmiinig

Hey guyz!

I have been doing programming for the past two or so years but at a very slow pace I'm afraid to say. I'm 15 years old by the way.
The issue I am having right now is that I have no real goals or new things I can be motivated in learning in c++. I know the basics, I can make a calculator and noughts and crosses game in the cmd line, but I cant seem to get past there.

Should I buy a book? What else can I do to get back into programming and get over this obstacle...

Thank you!
Would games ( thinking something like 2D bit-mapped graphics ) be something you would be interested in writing?
