Hey you! * taps on glass* I’ve missed you
Bookish Resolutions 2017
First and foremost, Happy New Year everyone! I hope this year brings you a lot of joy and good health. I know what you’re thinking… and yes I’ve been gone from the blogging scene for a few months but with the coming year I wanted to change that. The last few months of 2016 were really hard for me mentally and it’s been a slow journey. Not posting and interacting with you guys was something that was constantly on the back of my mind and although it made me unhappy to be away, I had to be away to work on myself so that when the time came I could dedicate my time to this blog without being overwhelmed. I really missed this little corner of the internet that I call my own. Having this space where I can express myself and share my opinions is something that I’ve always wanted. So if you’ve read this far, all I can say is thank you.
Okay, so since it is the first of the year/month I figured I’d share some bookish resolutions. I (like many) typically make resolutions but I usually lose sight of them within the first few months of the year but I figured I can at least make attainable ones.
GoodReads reading goal of 50 books – I was so happy ( and shocked tbh) that I reached my goal of 50 books last year. I mean there was a time last year that I was behind. Like really, really behind but I did it. I hope to read a little more this year but my goal is 50.
Read More Chunky Books – I’m going to let you in on a little secret… I’m dead scared of big books. They intimidate the crap out of me. But because of this I feel like I’ve missed out on some great stories. I’ve had the beautiful 20th anniversary collector’s edition of Outlander sitting on my shelves for two years. That’s insane!
Tackle my TBR or Learn to Say Goodbye – I have a huge TBR. It’s completely out of control. This year I really what to tackle some books that I’ve wanted to read for the longest. And as much as I hate to write this, truth is, realistically there are some books on there that I no longer have the pleasure to read. So instead of keeping them forever, I much rather donate them/give them away so that someone else can have the opportunity to enjoy them.
Finish It Already – I’m almost embarrassed to say that I have a problem with finishing a series. I really don’t know what’s wrong with me. Not only finishing but catching out with a series as well. I’m so behind.
Be More Organized – This resolution is most important because it applies to life in general not just books. My thoughts are always all over the place which is one of the reasons why I love blogging, because I can always look back and know exactly what I was thinking about a particular book. I’m definitely going to create a sort of schedule for the blog and try to stick to it. So far, I have a planner and it really helps to have important dates and goals written in.
So, those are my resolutions. I really like the idea of doing updates throughout the year to see how I’m doing so I’ll definitely do that. If you guys have any tips for me please let me know! Again, happy New Year and thank you for reading!
