As we approach the end of the year, it’s time to start planning for the future. I love to think about reading challenges I can set myself for the coming months. Today, I’m going to share my 2017 reading goals, hopefully it’ll inspire your own!
- Read 100 books. Just a classic Goodreads Reading Challenge basically! Since I’m studying English, I’ll be reading a lot of books for school in the coming year, so this shouldn’t be too unrealistic a target. Plus, I really want to keep reading for pleasure this term, that’s one of the reasons I started this blog, to give myself an excuse to read without feeling like I’m wasting time!
- Read from a more diverse range or authors, genres and settings. In 2016, I really tried to branch out in terms of genre and tried some Fantasy and Sci-Fi, but I think I can take it a step or two further. I especially want to read from a more diverse pool of authors, I think that’s very important in this day and age, and keeps your TBR interesting.
- Read 1 book from a book club per month. I’d love to eventually start my own online book club, but I’m afraid I’m just not there yet. Instead, I like to dabble in other book clubs just to feel like I’m part of a bigger community of readers. I alternate between sunbeamsjess book club, the banging bookclub, the bookbound society and booksplosion – it just depends on my mood and which club has the most interesting pick for that month.
I like to keep my reading goals pretty simple because my tastes are constantly changing, but there you have it! What’re your reading goals for 2017? If you have a Goodreads Reading Challenge let me know, I’d love to follow your journey!
