With every new year comes new goals, and I have a fair few for 2018. Some are the usual get in shape type personal improvement goals, but most of mine are book-related. Want to know my reading goals for 2018? Keep reading to find out!
Reading Goals for 2018
- Finish the Shoulda-Read-Along. Confession: I’m guilty of never finishing a reading challenge. I’m curious to see if a set book list helps me accomplish the goal or if I’m a hopeless case. I’m thinking the latter, but we’ll see.
- Finish the MMD Reading Challenge. Just to compare between the two, this one has themes for choosing books instead of a list of books. We’ll see which one gets accomplished, if either.
- Read more nonfiction. There are a ton of interesting nonfiction books out there, I just need to figure out how to read them. I’m thinking if I read one at the same time as a fiction book I’ll actually read more nonfiction. I hope it works!
- Read my own books and unhaul the ones I don’t want. I have so many books scattered through my house that I haven’t read, books that haven’t been read in a long time, and series I’ve started but not finished. I really want to try to make a dent in them this year so whenever I move out I won’t have nearly as many to take with me (don’t laugh, I can dream).
- Keep up with any library or review books I have. I have a bad habit of acquiring a metric butt-ton of both, usually around the same time (which is why I never read any of my own books). I want to limit each to a sane number at one time so I’m not buried under a legit avalanche of book due dates.
- Post some kind of review of each book I read. Whether it’s here, on Goodreads, or on Instagram, I want to try to do a good review on at least one platform for every single book I read this year.
- Monthly TBR’s. I want to try to do a TBR each month with enough flexibility that I can swap out for surprise library or review books, but will let me get my challenges and goals done.
