This week's topic is...
Top Ten Bookish Resolutions/Goals!

1. Read 75 Books!  Last year I ended up reading 76 books, 16 more than I planned to read!  It was an awesome accomplishment and I'm hoping I can read at least 75 books this year.  I know it's going to be a little more difficult because it's my last year of college and I'm busy with graduating and getting ready to enter *adult life* (eep).  

2. Read More Adult Books!  I mostly read YA books with the occasional romance thrown in but I really want to start reading more adult books, especially adult fantasy novels!  I read a few in 2017 that were really good and I think reading more will help with my own writing and introduce me to some exciting stories!

3.  Read Classics!  I've been wanting to read more classics for a long time and just . . . haven't.  A few years ago I bought Pride and Prejudice and Withering Heights so I think I'll start with those ones first!  If you have any suggestions for classics to read, leave some in the comments below!

4.  Take Notes While Reading!  I have a bad habit of just reading without taking notes or writing down my reactions to certain events in the books which makes it very difficult to write reviews, especially if I wait a while to write them (which happens often).

5. Write Reviews Promptly!  Another bad habit.  I tend to read a bunch of books quickly and not write the review right away -- rather than write them while the story is fresh in my mind, I'll wait until the day before I planned to do the review to write it.  

6.  Read Lord of Shadows!  Okay, so I started reading this book around when it first came out and I was struggling to remember everything that went down in the first book so I put it down.  But I'd really like to finish it before the third books comes out so I have to get on that!  

7.  Read Tower of Dawn!  Okay, I've been hardcore putting off reading this one.  I've heard fantastic things about it but I just . . . haven't wanted to read it.  I may still be slightly bitter about it taking place of the final book.  Also, I don't really like Chaol.  Oh well.  I have to read it soon since I don't want to go into the last book not having read all the others.

These are all my reading goals and resolutions for 2018!  I don't have 10 of them but I think 7 is more than enough to keep track of.  I hope these goals will make me a better reader and a better blogger!  What are some of your reading resolutions? 


  1. Great goals! I hope to read more classics and more adult books this year too! Pride and Prejudice and Wuthering Heights are my favorite classics; I hope you enjoy them! I plan to read Great Expectations and Mansfield Park. Good luck! Happy reading!

  2. "Tower of Dawn" is on my tbr for this year as well. Also I need to get to Pride and Prejudice as soon as I can before I forget everything I've read. 75 books that sounds so much for me,but I don't like forcing myself on this challenges. Wish you luck with your tbr and reading challenge for this year! :)
