Hello bookworms! I’m Nia and today I’m going to be talking about my 2019 reading goals and resolutions.
I have already planned all my goals and resolutions for this year in my bullet journal, but I think this is such a cool thing that you can revisit throughout the year to see if you’ve accomplished anything, hence why I chose this topic for this week.
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 120 books
Last year I had an amazing reading year, and managed to read more than 230 books, so even though this year I would like to reach that number, I’m a very competitive person and I don’t want to put that weight on my shoulders, because otherwise I wouldn’t stop thinking about it and rushed in most of my reads, so instead I set a goal of 120 books, that it’s much lower and I think I won’t be as pressured.
Read all my most anticipated releases of 2019
This is something new that I decided to do, and to be fair, I don’t know how well I’m going to be at that. I still want to do this, because I’m super excited to read some of the books that are coming out in 2019, but let’s see how this one goes.
Re-read my favorite books (at least 10).
Okay, I admit I’m the worst at re-reading books. Even though I’ve thought about it and want to do it, I’ve always put some kind of excuse to read another book instead. So I set myself a goal to re-read at least 10 books that I adored in the past, and so far I’ve re-read a couple of books, so it’s not bad, right?
Read more diverse books
Even though last year I did a fair job at reading diverse books, I still wanted to continue reading more diverse reads and added this goal for this year, and hopefully I’ll do an even better job than in 2018.
Buy less books and only ones I’m super interested in
Hi, my name is Nia and I like to buy books. No, but really. I want to keep the amount of books that I buy in 2019 in a lower radar, because though there are some amazing books coming out this year, I’m running out of space. I also want to pack some of the books that I didn’t like in boxes or something like that, so that way I’ll have more room for new books, but we’ll see how this goes.
What are your reading resolutions or goals for this year? Have you set any similar goals as mine? Let me know in the comments!
