My 2018 Reading Goals

collage1

I wasn’t planning on making reading goals this year, but for my own sanity, I really should. My Goodreads goal this year is 55 books again, this is an achievable goal for me, but depending on how the year goes, I might even read more again this year! Apart from that goal, here are my reading goals for 2018!

21066318Last year I wanted to finish Poirot, but I didn’t, which isn’t too bad, considering I read more than 20 regardless! This year I’ve only got about 10 books left to read, so I will be able to finish it. I’m not sure if I emotionally can, but I will finish it! I’m dreading reading the last one, I’m pretty sure I’m going to cry!

32193395For the last half of 2017, I didn’t read a lot of children’s book, while those are some of my absolute favourite books! I want to read more classics, like the Swiss Family Robinson and the Secret Garden (I’ve got some beautiful editions!!) but I want to read new ones too.

agI tend to buy a lot more books than my shelves can handle. My boyfriend and I are at the point where we need to buy 4 more bookshelves because the one’s we have don’t have enough room… When I was still living at my parent’s house, I had a special shelf for my To Be Read books, so I could see how many I still had left to read and I had a lot more control about it. Now that I’m living with my boyfriend, I don’t have one, so I keep forgetting what books I haven’t read, because I can’t see them on a special shelf. We are getting these new shelves soon so I can organize the books accordingly!

It really took the joy out of reading, because I just wanted to put up a post for my blog, even though my book reviews are the posts that are the least popular! I just want to read for my enjoyment, and if I don’t have a post up on Sunday, well, so be it. Reading should be fun, not a chore!

These were my goals for 2018! What are some of yours?
