I’ve been reading everyone’s bookish goals for 2018 and decided I needed to give it a go. These goals may be super optimistic (I’m getting married this year) but I’d rather have a reaching goal than a lackluster one! Comment or link your goals in the comments!
1. Read one to two classic novels a month.
Well, this is probably going to be my biggest challenge. Classic books tend to be huge (ahem, War and Peace, which will arrive this week) but there are some that aren’t that long. War and Peace, House of Mirth and some Jane Austen will definitely be read this year. All these classics will hopefully make me a better Jeopardy competitor 😉
2. Read four books a month (including classics).
This goal should be doable. I tend to get through 300ish page books rather quickly, and that’s a typical novel.
3. Use NetGalley more.
With or wedding coming up, I’ve been working on being “financially conscious” and not spending on things I don’t need. Which typically includes books and coffee. I’ve vowed to use our local library and NetGalley when I can. Unfortunately I was a bad NetGalley user last year (I didn’t review some books I received) and I will need to redeem myself somehow.
4. Read half YA and half adult.
Last year I jumped into some YA and some fantasy and I really enjoyed them. I’ve spotted some awesome new books for 2018 in both genres so I’m really excited.
5. Do monthly wrap ups.
I’m hoping to really start utilizing this blog and writing better reviews!
