Here are my reading and blogging goals for 2018!
Read 52 books:
I have read more than 52 book for the last 5 years, so I’m pretty sure my goal could be higher, but a lot of changes are coming to my life in 2018 and I’m not sure about anything. That’s why I decided to set 52 as my goal, so I don’t have to stress about not completing it.
I set this goal all the time, at the beginning of the year, in the middle of the year or at the end of the year. I never end up accomplishing this goal and it frustrates me. A lot of things get in the way, but I want to be able to manage everything else and bloggging, because I love to blog about books and I want to keep doing it.
Interact more with the bookish community:
I want to comment more on other blogs and talk to other bloggers about the content that they are creating and also be more active on twitter. I feel like my interaction with the bookish community a lot of time is limited and I feel like an observer of the community and not an active participant. I want to change that.
Read more diverse books:
I also had this goal for 2017 and the first half of the year I did really good, but the second half of the year I fell off the tracks. So I want to try and read as many diverse books as I can in 2018.
Continue doing 9 Books Monday:
9 Books Monday is a feature here on Bookish Wanderess where I talk every monday about 9 books that have positive representation for a minority/marginalized group. Those 9 books are book I read and loved, books on my tbr and books releasing soon. If you want to read past post, you can do it here: 9 Books Monday
Choose the books I read more ‘carefully’:
I’m not sure carefully is the right word, but the reason I’m setting up this goal is that I only rated 2 books 5 stars in 2017. Only 2 books. Most of the books I read this year got a rating of 3 or 3.5 stars. I want to read more books that I love and not so many books that are just OK. I’m not sure how to accomplish this goal yet, but I’m gonna try.
Read more fantasy:
Fantasy is my favorite genre and this year I didn’t read that many fantasy books, but the few I read were some of my favorite books of the year. That’s why I want to go back to reading fantasy books in 2018.
