Hello, lovely readers!
Long time no write. Seriously though, I’ve been gone for a while, yeah?
I hope you all have been doing wonderfully since I was last here. I am really hoping to get back into blogging, as I’ve missed it a lot over the months that I have been gone. I hope you are all looking forward to new content from me.
Today I come to you with my reading resolutions for 2018!
Goodreads Challenge – This year I’ve set my Goodreads challenge to 50 books. I only read 40 books last year, but have made a general goal to make more time for reading this year. I think 50 is an attainable goal for me, as I have read more than that in past years.
Finish Five Series – This year I want to knock out some series. I own quite a few series that are completed, some that I haven’t even started yet! Not only that, but I have a few series that the last book will be published this year. So, I should have plenty of books to choose from for this challenge.
Read Five, Buy One – Okay, so a little bit of a funny story here. I was talking to my husband and a friend of mine about how I wanted to buy less books this year. I bought way, way too many books last year compared to what I read and my TBR is starting to get a little out of control. I had mentioned I was thinking of setting myself a read so many before I can buy a book goal, and they both jumped at the idea. Five books is what we settled on. I have a chart hanging on my wall and everything. I’m really hoping I can stick to this.
A Readathon a Month – I would love to participate in a readathon a month. This isn’t a very strict goal, but I would like to at least participate in more readathons this year. I don’t think I did a single one last year, and that makes me incredibly sad. I love readathons and do pretty well with my reading when I do them.
Unhaul – I have a plan to go through my books and get rid of the books I know I will not read. I have some books that I picked up at our library book sale, or at our used book store, that I got simply because they were having a really good sale and I felt I needed to buy more books. Which is so incredibly ridiculous. Don’t get me wrong, I read the back of almost everything that I bought, so it was always books that I thought sounded interesting. However, I know I probably will not ever read those books. I already have so many books that I want to read more, and more books coming out. I figure that if I want to read them later, I can always pick them up again or get them from the library.
What are your resolutions for the year?
