Inspired by the wonderful Abbey over at Abscape, I’ve decided to write a list of 2018 bookish resolutions! Over December, I really let the dust settle on my blog which isn’t the best thing to do. I was busy, and didn’t even have much energy to read in that month either. But now I’m back, and ready to kick off the year afresh!
Read 50 books
I managed to actually pass my reading goal in 2017 by reading 77 books! This one I think I’ll be able to manage, as there are some really exciting books out this year that I’m really excited to sink my teeth into. I’ve already finished a book this year, so I think I’m on track!
Read more adult novels
Actually inspired by reading Abbey’s post, I think I definitely need to read more adult books this year. Last year I think was a grand total of one…which was Lost Boy by Christina Henry (which is utterly amazing). I’m such a huge reader of YA, but I do think that sometimes I might be missing books! Again, I’ve done this already by reading A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, which was beautiful and brutal and such a brilliant adult fantasy that I’ll be finishing the whole series this year. I also want to read Nevernight by Jay Kristoff, so have good plans to tick this off!
I used to write tons when I was a teenager. Sure, they were fanfics, but I was writing them. I’d write a little story practically every week, sometimes hurrying home from school to continue the latest part that had been swimming in my head all day. I’ve currently got a few ideas in my head for stories, so this year will be the year I definitely get those idea onto the page and write them.
Review every book I read
This is going to be a tricky one. I feel like one of my best reviews last year was S.T.A.G.S, which was a book I didn’t love or hate. It was just a book that I read and I had feelings that I needed to grumble about and feelings that I needed to praise. This year, my challenge is to review every book that I read, whether I loved it or hated it. The reviews are for the readers, and if I can manage to share my thoughts on a book for someone else to see, that’s good in my book.
Do you guys have any bookish resolutions for 2018? I’d love to hear some, and I’m sure Abbey would too! Do check out her blog, it’s brilliant!
