appy New Year, bookworms! I’m crossing my fingers for a year full of growth and increased content creation. But a new year also means new reading goals, and I’ve got a few bookish resolutions in mind for 2018. Some will be easier to quantify than others, but here goes:
1. Read 75 books over the course of the year.
My reading goal for 2017 was set to 60 books, but I ended up reading almost 70. I’d like to challenge myself a bit more this year, so I’ll be increasing my goal to 75 books.
2. Increase the number of new releases I read and review.
New releases are a major part of the book community, and it’s important to keep up with them to stay relevant. I want to be more conscious of what’s coming out and selling, so I’ll be making an attempt to pick up new books as they come out.
3. Read more adult fiction.
Now I am absolutely not saying that there’s anything wrong with reading Young Adult, no matter what your age is. But I’ve definitely read more YA than anything else in 2017, and I’d like to expand my reading to include more adult fiction. I have a ton of adult books on my shelf that are begging to be picked up, so this is my chance to get to them.
4. Read more diversely.
This is always the goal, isn’t it? I think I’ve read a decent amount of books in 2017 that demonstrate perspectives outside of my own, but I’d like to continue reading diversely in 2018.
5. Keep creating bookish content in 2018.
This one’s obvious, but I figured I’d add it anyway. I want to keep up with this blog through 2018, posting 3 to 5 times weekly. Since I’m already doing this, this should be an easy resolution to uphold.
