Hello bookworms! I’m Nia and today I’m going to be talking about some of my 2018 reading resolutions.
Now I’ve already planned a whole post in which I’m going to be telling you more in depth what my reading resolutions for this year will be, but I’m also going to be talking about other goals I want to archieve this year, not just for reading. But today I’m only going to be saying some of the goals I have when it comes to reading, which I have to say, aren’t that many.
If you aren’t familiar with Top 5 Wednesday, it is a Goodeads group now currently run by Sam over at ToughtsOfTomes on Youtube, where each week they give you a topic and you talk about 5 books that fit that category. You can join the group here if you want to participate!
Without any further ado, let’s start with this week’s topic!
Read 100 books
I’ve been increasing the amount of books every year, because I know I can do it. Since in 2017 I read a total of 163 books, I figured this would be a normal amount of books for me to read, and though sometimes (especially at the beginning of the year) this could be a bit overwhelming, I really want to read at least 100 books this year. I’ve written a whole post of my journal purely for motivation purposes, and I’m really excited about this.
Read more and buy less
Well… If you’ve been here for a while you’ll probably know already that I like buying a lot of books. Like, a lot. So, even though I tend to read a fairly amount of books per month, I still have a huge TBR pile that I need to disappear. So one of my resolutions for this year is buy less books. Now, that “book buying ban” doesnt’ apply to new releases (no, don’t look at me, those are the rules), so I’ll be getting some new releases or pre-ordering some upcoming books. But I don’t want to buy that many books, so it’s going to be hard.
Finish almost all my pending series
Now, I have a problem with finishing series. I have a lot of them unfinished, so this is one of the goals I have to work a bit more to archieve, because… let’s face it, I like reading books but I don’t like when they end. So I really want to finish most of my pending trilogies or series.
Read more diverse
This isn’t technically a goal since I haven’t put a number of diverse books I want to read, but I still wanted to mention it because there are some diverse books out there I really need to get my hands on. So this year I want to read more diverse books. It’s quite self-explanatory, actually.
Read a classic
Oh… I feel this is always in my yearly resolutions, but I always ignore it *shame*. I’ve been wanting to read any Jane Austen’s or classic books for a while. I even own a copy of the books I want to read. But I suck at reading classics, hence why this is always on my goals. However I hope that’ll change this year, and I finally read a classic. Crossing fingers.
What are your reading goals and resolutions for this year and which one is your top priority? Do you have a book reading goal? Let me know if you do!
