HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
I’m almost a month late to the party but January isn’t over yet so I’m gonna talk about my New Year’s resolutions anyway.
This year I tried something a little bit different than I normally do. I liked the idea of having a central feeling or action that I’m working towards throughout the year and throughout all my goals. So this year I chose a word of the year and it is:
I’m pretty excited to see whether or not my book goals are going to create a feeling of equilibrium in my life because I definitely need it. Let’s jump in to 2018 Bookish New Year’s Resolutions!
Read 30 Books
Last year I was pretty disappointed in the number of books that I read. But here’s the thing, I don’t have the time to read 50 books every year. Reading is, unfortunately, not that high on my list of priorities right now. But I still like the notion of challenging myself to read more than I usually. So this year, instead of making it a goal, I’m using this as more of a challenge. Still, I’ve already got a pretty good start because I read 3 books this month. If I keep that up, I might actually tick this of.
Read a Book Every Day
Because I was so disappointed in myself last year about how much reading I got done, I’m making a resolution to get a little bit of reading done every single day. I know I have 10 minutes of uninterrupted time to spend doing something I really and truly love. I haven’t done such a great job this month but I’m getting into the grove so next month will be better.
Don’t Stress About Reading the Latest Book
FOMO is real y’all and I was feelin’ it last year. I think the only new release I read last year was The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas (it’s so effin’ good!) and I felt so bad about it. But this year my goal is too be less judgmental of what I read. Because reading is reading regardless of how new the book is.
Write One Blog Post a Month
I really don’t have time to blog every single week. My semester is packed with super difficult and time-consuming courses and that is more a priority than anything right now. But I like blogging and I like writing reviews of the books I’ve read. So I’m going to do my absolute best to get at least 1 post out a month.
Do Some Updating
The About Me page is no longer accurate. I have so much updating that needs to be done on this blog, so the goal is to make that happen. Maybe we’ll even see a change in theme but I honestly wouldn’t hold out hope on that right now.
