Hi everyone! Since it’s the end of the year, I have been looking back at my reading and blogging in 2018 and I thought it would be a good idea to share how I did with my 2018 Bookish Resolutions. I had set 7 goals for this year, which were:
Read 52 books: I did it! I have read 137 books in 2018 and I’m hoping that, with the help of the shortest books on my tbr, I can make it to 150. (✔️)
Blog consistently: I didn’t do as well as I hoped with this goal, BUT 2018 was the first year since I started blogging where I posted every single month of the year, that’s a big improvement from other years, so I’m counting this as achieving this resolution. (✔️)
Interact more with the bookish community: I did a lot better than other years, but I feel like I can still do so much better. Nonetheless, I was more active on twitter, I blog hopped more and I hosted the Latinx Book Bingo, which meant interacting with a lot of people, so I’m counting this as a resolutions I sticked to. (✔️)
Read more diverse books: I did this! Still, I want to keep improving and reading more and more diverse books. (✔️)
Continue doing 9 Books Monday: I failed so badly with this goal 😞 I only wrote like 3 or 4 posts like this in 2018. I’ll try to complete this goal in 2019. (❌)
Choose the books I read more ‘carefully’: Another failed resolution. I set this goal because I only gave 5 stars to 2 books in 2017 and I’m sad to say I only gave 5 stars to 2 books in 2018 as well. I’ll talk more about this in a post later this month. (❌)
Read more fantasy: I was failing at this, but the last few months of the year helped me recover. Fantasy is my favorite genre and I was in a slump when it came to reading it, but not anymore! I think I kind of kept my resolution. (✔️)
At the end, I sticked to 5 of my resolutions and I failed 2 of them. Since I had such a small amount of resolutions it’s not great that I didn’t accomplished all of them, but I guess I didn’t do a horrible job. My 2019 Bookish Resolutions are coming next week!
