I posted a video on my YouTube about the books I want to read in 2018, but I didn’t really talk about the specific goals that I have for the year, so I thought that I would do so here!
1. Reading goal.
My reading goal for 2017 was 150 and I managed (as of 12/29) to read 210! My first thought was to make my goal for 2018, 200 books, but this next year will probably be the busiest year of my life, so I think I’m going to put it at 100 books and hope that 2018 won’t kill me.
2. Control my book buying habits.
I (as well as the majority of readers) have a huge problem with buying too many books. I’m honestly not that worried about the AMOUNT of books on my tbr because I love having a lot of options, but ya boy need to save money.
I’m planning on letting myself buy 2-3 new releases a month, and going to try to limit the amount of miscellaneous books that I buy. I’m also going to be cataloging every book that I buy, so maybe I can guilt myself into buying less?
3. Read more non-fiction.
I’m probably not the only one, but most of my life I’ve dreaded reading non-fiction. I’ve always had the mindset that everything that isn’t fictional is boring, WHICH ISN’T TRUE!! I just read Connor Franta’s memoir, NOTE TO SELF, in December and LOVED it, which has sparked my interest in Non- fiction.
I’m really hoping to read all of the memoirs and more political non-fiction in 2018, which might be the goal that I’m most excited about!
4. Review books sent from publishers in time!!
I’m so blessed to be sent books from publishers pretty frequently, but I may of may not have the worst time management skills. Publishers take time out of their schedules to send me books (for free!!) so the least I can do is actually post my review on time.
5. Blog more.
I think that we ALL know how much I’ve sucked at blogging this year. I started my booktube channel, and that’s what ruined my streak. Like I mentioned in a previous post, I frankly just didn’t know what to post on here. I’ve become a lot more passionate about my blog as of recently, so I’m currently working on getting in a routine!
Well that is it for my bookish goals for 2018! If you would like to know the specific books I would like to get to in 2018, feel free to check out my Youtube video (and subscribe of course!).
What are some of your goals for 2018? Feel free to let me know in the comments!
