I am a bit late doing this one but only now I got the time to actually see this calmly. Also, last year I only participated in one challenge – the Goodreads one – and I really wanted to do some more different ones this year. I already saw some of them for now. They will be updated here.
Today, I’m going to share my 2017 reading goals and hopefully, it’ll inspire your own!
- Read (at least) 65 books. I am doing once again the Goodreads Reading Challenge. I did read more last year but with school and exams and so on I don’t want to push myself all too much for now. We’ll see if I can do more than that or not!
- Participate in more challenges. I will be doing at least this one:
2017 Mount TBR Reading Challenge – Mount Blanc: Read 24 books from your TBR
Although I would have done this anyway, with a challenge it’s always more compelling and fun. So, I thought this one was a total must for me! I really need to narrow my TBR down before I buy more books!
2017 New Adult Reading Challenge – Bingo
In 2016 I think I read around 2 to 3 new adult books?! I am not sure but anyway, it’s a lot less comparing to other genres. When I saw this challenge and with a bingo, I had to try it! First of all, I’ve never done a Bingo challenge and secondly, although I don’t read much new adult books, I actually tend to enjoy them a lot!
- Read more diversely, both in genre and authors. I think I always have the tendency to read mainly Fantasy. But last year I actually read a bit of contemporary, sci-fi and manga and well, not much else. This year I want to read a bit more of historical fiction, classics, new adult … also last year I actually read books from a bunch of authors, especially from Netgalley. This year I already have some more authors in mind that I really wanted to try!
- Give priority to unfinished series. This one is both a read and a buy goal. I tend to buy new books all the time and I am still missing half series and so on. I did pretty good in this last year but not enough. This year, I will solemnly try to end the series I own first instead of jumping around!
My reading goals are pretty simple but at least like that, I hope to actually achieve them!
What are your reading goals for 2017?
If you have a Goodreads Reading Challenge let me know! I’d love to check it out!
