There is nothing I enjoy more than the beginning of a new year! I am a person who thrives on lists and agendas so, I love the idea of a fresh start and the opportunity to make some lists and to set up and achieve some goals…especially when they are the bookish kind!
I’ve thought a lot about what types of bookish goals I want to accomplish this year. Some are general and some are incredibly specific. So, without further ado, let’s see what my reading goals for 2018 are:
GOAL #1: Get Back Into the Swing of Things
The beginning of 2017 I dove into the book world head first. I was reading 30 plus books a month, sharing posts from my fellow bloggers and making sure I was posting each day. I was incredibly pleased with my blogging progress and how many books I was reading….until September came. Once school started, things started to feel a little hectic and, by the time I got married, moved into our apartment and started preparing for the holiday craziness, I was completely off the blogging bandwagon.
I know that this is normal and that I had some pretty incredible changes happening in my life but I really MISSED blogging and being able to talk books with everyone.
So, my goal for 2018 is to get back on track with posting, sharing and reading other blogs.
GOAL #2: Read More Classics
I really want to try and incorporate more of the classics into my TBR pile and have decided that I am going to try and read at least one every month for 2018.
In University, I majored in English Literature so I did read many classics; however, to try and save myself extra work, I often found myself taking classes within the same era or in the same genre so I feel like I have missed huge chunks.
Hopefully, this goal will help me catch up on some of the books that I am embarrassed to say I haven’t read.
GOAL #3: Popsugar Reading Challenge
Chelsea (from The Suspense is Thrilling Me) and I have decided to take on the Popsugar Reading Challenge for 2018 and are encouraging our fellow Suspensful Clues and Thrilling Reviews Book Club members (if you aren’t a member, you can find us on Goodreads HERE) to take on the challenge with us!
I am really excited to do this challenge and have worked TONS of books on my ever-growing TBR pile into the challenge to try and give some of my forgotten books some love!
I have a post coming tomorrow featuring the challenge and all my picks so stay posted for that!
