Happy New Year Booklovers!
As we begin counting down to the new year, I thought it was the perfect time to talk about my reading and blogging resolutions for 2017.
I'm not usually big on making resolutions, simply because I never end up keeping to them, usuaully abandoning them by about February. But, I know there are some reading goals and things I want to do this year, so I definitley want to stick to these resolutions.
So the most important resolution is my reading goal. My main goal is to read more than I have this year and in 2015, but I want to try and get to 60 books.
I also want to finish more series. At the moment, I'm currently in the midst of reading the following series - Percy Jackson & The Olympians, The Selection, Pretty Little Liars, Rosemary Beach, Miss Peregreine's Peculiar Children, Asylum, Mary Poppins, Clearwater Witches, The Chronicels Of Narnia, Internet Girls, Broken People, The Fade Out, and Charmed. And this isn't including the series that still have books to be released. I want to finish most of these series, and try and finish some before starting more. The goal is to end the year with less series in-progress.
In 2017 I also want to read more classics and more non-fiction books. I don't want to set myself a goal of like a classic a month, but I want to try and read a few throughout the same, same with non-fiction books. This past year I've read a few YouTuber books, which have been great, but I want to read some different non-fiction in 2017.
I've said this a lot, but I want to cut down on the number of books I buy. If you seen my haul videos or wrap up posts, you will see that I've bought a TONNE of books in 2016. This has had a really negative impact not only on my bank account, but also on the size of my TBR. While I'm not putting myself on a book buying ban, I do just generally want to limit myself to about 5 books a month.
Onto blogging and booktube, I'm going to change how I do wrap up videos. Instead of doing a video a month, I want to try what a lot of BookTubers have done this past year, and do a video for every 4 or 5 books I read.
I also want to do at least one video review a month. That was my plan for this year, but it never really happened. There are always books that I want to talk about more, and feel like wrap up videos can get too long when you have a lot to say about certain books.
Those are my main resolutions for the year. They are all really easy things to achieve and change, so I'm confident that I can successfully fulfil them. Let me know some of your bookish related resolutions for the new year.
Hope you've all had a fantastic 2016 and that 2017 brings you everything you want and more!
See You In 2017!
