I have done this now for the past three years and have been decently successful with it.. This year I have set a lot of goals for myself and really want to throw myself back into the book community and blogging world. The past year off has left me wanting so much from books because I have missed the atmosphere and love of books.
♠ Read at least
100 50 books. I have a challenge I have created for myself and its the year I take on some completed series. [I read 49 (like 300 pages left in one more I am trying to finish today) books this year! ]
♠ Read and Complete 6 Series. This goes along with the challenge I have am creating. There are so many out that I have yet to pick up and its crazy. [I finally was able to complete another one bringing my total to 2 series completed in 2017. That number is so weak]
♠ Read at least three daunting books. This is a repeat from last year.I feel like I am always so intrigued and interested in the huge books, but never get around to reading them because they are intimidating. (I am counting this as over 500 pages.)[***** I did this!!!! One of the books was 496 but that was 4 pages away so I counted it as 500! ]
♠ Read 45 books from my TBR. I just recently moved and don’t have my books. I have been going to the library and with that it give way to an endless array of books. I really want to make sure I am still reading books that I had actually purchased. [I was able to read 30 books from my TBR! I am hoping to bring my TBR of 230+ books down by a lot next year with the help of the #beatthebacklist challenge! ]
♠ Read at least 5 Non-Fiction Books. I started doing this last year and really enjoyed it. I love learning more and I have a lot I am interested in. [ I was able to read 3 this year. I am really hoping to have a much larger number in 2018 as I have quite the collection of nonfiction books developing.]
♠ Start New Blog Series. I really want to work harder on developing my blog. There are many things I participate in that are created by other bloggers and I really want to come up with something that is completely my own and get others involved in! [I started to do my Books Best Friend posts in which I am hoping to continue. I am looking to add a lot more content next year and will hopefully be able to create some unique and creative posts. ]
What were some of your 2017 goals/resolutions? How did you do on them?
