- Give up on series/books I am not enjoying.
This one I know will be a bit difficult for me. I know, I know, how could it be hard to give up something you aren’t enjoying? Well, when I am reading things like this I always think it is going to turn around. In general I am an optimistic person so I always have hope. But, this year I don’t want to waste my precious reading time on books that just aren’t for me.
- Be a more critical reader/rater.
I have recently been looking over my goodreads account and I noticed a pattern. I rate book VERY highly. Half of the ones I rated really highly I can’t really tell you what they were about anymore. I mean chances are I did really enjoy it, but I am changing my rating system.
1- I actively did not enjoy this book in anyway.
2-Eh, was not for me but I can see the appeal other see in the book.
3-This was a good book, look into it.
4-I really, really enjoyed this book.
5-This book WILL stay with me.
- Get to 0 by 2018.
In the past I have had a very high TBR count, at the height it was nearly 123. My current pile is sitting at a very manageable 26 books. I never thought I would get it under 30 books, but I did it! I really want to get to the point where I can go pick up a book from the store/online/on my ereader and read it right away.
- Post a blog post at least twice a month.
I just really want to not abandon this little project.
- Organize my goodreads shelves (cough add me :p).
I’m not 100% sure how I want to do this. I currently have set up a fiction and non-fiction shelves. I want to make them a bit more specific, but I’m not sure what genres I want to put there. Any idea please share!
What are some of your book or bookish goals for 2017?
