Today I want to talk about the bookish goals I’m setting myself in 2018! The list is a lot shorter than my 2017 goals, but I think that will give me a chance to concentrate more on what I set out to do. So without further ado, let’s get started!
I want to read at least 3 new classics.
I don’t read a lot of classics at all, but there are so many I want to read / want to have read that this goal seems in order. I think three is a very reasonal number to start with. I say new classics, because I’m not counting re-reads. A.k.a. The Little Prince doesn’t count!
I want to participate in 2 readathons.
I participated in a few readathons this year and I really enjoyed that! It’s really fun. I want to make sure I keep doing this in 2018, so I’ve made it a goal.
I want to read everything on my current physical TBR.
This is an important goal to me. By the end of 2018 all the books that are currently on my physical TBR have to be read and I’m unhauling the unread ones. If I haven’t read it by then, I never will and someone else should have my copy. This goal is very manageable and the fact that I’ll be unhauling the unread books pushes me some more! To be clear, this means that by the first of January 2019 these books have to be read:
My own copy of Kids of Appetite by David Arnold // Ice Princess by Camilla Läckberg // We are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson // Woesten by Kris Van Steenberge // The Ravenclaw edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone by J.K. Rowling // The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende // The Power by Naomi Alderman // Autoboyography by Christina Lauren
I want to read more diversely.
This was also one of my goals in 2017 and I certainly want to continue diversifying my reading. I think it’s a very important thing to do and something I want to make an effort for. If there is one in 2018, I want to give the Diversity Bingo a shot!
Now let’s talk about my Goodreads goal. This year I’m going to set it on 1 book. In 2017 my 60-books-goal put a lot of unnecessary pressure on me and I want to avoid that this year. I do love the stats it shows though, so that’s why I’m setting it at 1 book instead of not setting it at all.
What are some of your goals? What do you think about mine?
I hope you enjoyed this post. Thanks for reading!
