2018 Bookish Resolutions

2018 bookish resolutions

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.

Blog consistently:

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.

Tell me some of your 2018 bookish resolutions in the comments, I would love to know!

  1. These are all really great goals! We have quite a few that are the same too, I also feel like a bit of an observer rather than a participant sometimes and really want to get more involved with the blogging community!

    I hope you manage to achieve all your goals and you have an awesome 2018! 🙂

  2. YAY FANTASY!!! That’s my favourite genre too!! I hope you read some amazing ones in 2018, I find that reading the books I’ve already got hidden away (instead of picking up hyped new releases) means I usually get more 4-5 star ratings! That said I only got 12 out of 72 books this year that I rated 5 stars. Onward and upward though. Good luck on your reading & blogging for 2018!! ❤

      1. I loved Name of the Wind! It was already a favourite but I reread it via audio in 2017! And I loved Oathbringer, a continuation to The Way of Kings (Stormlight Archive) as well. ❤ Good luck on your reading (and fantasy reading) in 2018!!

      1. City of Strife, An Ember in the Ashes (it’s the book club pick for @themuslimshelf on twitter), Timekeeper (book club pick for @LitCelebrAsian on twitter – which I am part of), Sunbolt, The Traitor’s Tunnel, Fire Boy, Peter Darling and Plastic Wings. Some of my faves!

        Yeah, let’s do a readalong! Do you have a list of books you want to read?

      2. All those books sound amazing! I read An Ember in the Ashes in 2017 and I really liked it. Peter Darling is on my tbr.

        I don’t reallyhave a list, I only have my tbr shelf in goodreads, but it’s not updated. If you have some books in mind you can tell me. We can talk about it on Twitter, what do you think?
