Happy New Year everyone! I’m honestly not one to set New Year’s Resolutions because I don’t think it’s personally healthy to me if I don’t achieve them. However, I do loosely follow bookish one’s and I always attempt a reading challenge! So here are some of my 2019 reading (and blogging) resolutions.
Read 50 Books
I’ve just set my Goodreads goal of the year and it is 50 books again! I managed to read around 15 more than that in 2018, but I like to keep things realistic.
Read a Classic. Any Classic.
I’m sorry to say that the only classic I’ve ever read is Jane Eyre. And I loved it, but whenever I go to read a classic now, I think back to the standalone YA books I have on my TBR and find them too daunting. So instead of making a big goal to read a number of classics, in 2019 I’d just like to start.
Read More Series
I was actually very proud of myself in 2018 for the amount of series I managed to read and get off my physical TBR! I’ve always been more of a standalones kind of reader, but I’m definitely getting more into series. In 2019 I’d at least like to tackle The Mortal Instruments, The Dark Artifices, Divergent and Throne of Glass.
Lessen My Physical TBR
Honestly, this is probably my most important rule on this list. I’m not certain, but I think I’m starting this year with around the same unread books as last year, and I’m not going to let that happen again. I’m going to be stronger, and try and control my book-buying urges! So far, being in a joint book-buying-ban with my best friend is definitely helping that 🙂
Blog Most Days
I couldn’t do this list without including at least one blog related resolution. I’d like to continue blogging most days in 2019 whenever I can.
What are you attempting in 2019?
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
