Hello everyone, today I'm going to be sharing my 2017 reading goals. Can I just start by saying where the hell did 2016 go...I feel like the years are going quicker and quicker the older I get.
So this year I set myself a target of 40 books. To some people this might not be a lot. But between University and life in general I don't have the time to read nearly as much as I would like. I'm actually 3 books ahead of schedule right now which makes a nice change.
My first reading goal is to read more diverse books. There is something called #DiversityBingo where there are different categories of diverse books and the aim is to read a book from each of the categories by the end of the year. I won't be doing the whole challenge as I don't think I'd have the time to do it, but I have decided that I will pick and choose some categories every now and then so that I am still reading more diverse books.
My second reading goal is to make more time for sitting down with a good book and a coffee. A lot of the time one of my main reasons for not reading is I can't be bothered. Which I know sounds stupid because you're literally sitting down doing nothing. But that's the problem for me, I'm quite a fidgety person, I tend to always do more than one thing at a time. For example; I'll watch tv while being on my phone and my laptop, doing three different things at once. I need to remind myself to just relax and sit and read a book.
My final reading goal is to start finishing series. There's so many series that I've started and haven't finished even though I love the books. The biggest problem with it is that I have the memory of a goldfish. So when I do eventually get around to finishing a series I've forgotten the majority of what's happened, meaning I have to go back and re-read all the books. Which is extremely annoying when you have so many amazing books on your TBR list.
So that's my reading goals for 2017. I'm hoping that by the end of this year I'll be able to say that I achieved them. Let me know what some of your reading goals are, I'd love to hear them!
Thanks for reading!
