First Top Ten of the year (which has moved to thatartsyreadergirl.com btw) is all about those 2018 bookish goals. Let’s what I’m not gonna do this year, shall we?
- Read new authors.
In 2017 I actually read a lot of new authors which was great I’m looking forward to read some more this year!
- Read more standalones.
So I don’t have to wait for new releases. I mean, I NEVER LEARN CLEARLY.
- Wait a few days before I add any new books to my TBR.
Basically if I like a book, I’ll just bookmark it or something and then re-read the blurb a few days later, if I still like it then I will add it to my TBR.
This will never work.
- Read more classics.
Shocking I know. This is a recurring one but I have to stick to it, last year I read The Handmaid’s Tale and loved it so I plan to read at least 2 this year.
- Be more strict with my ratings.
Last year I realized that I was too quick to rate high a few books up to 2016. 2017 gave me a lot of mediocre books and it got me wondering because up until this year I had a habit of rating book right after I finished them, so maybe because in 2017 I took a few days writing my reviews for some of them, it made me re-think my final ratings.
This isn’t making any sense.Anyway, I plan to wait at least a few hours to possibly a day or more before rating a book.
- Request less.
I have 2 books on my Kindle from NetGalley I haven’t read yet and I actually had to check NetGalley for the titles because after my reading slump I totally forgot what I got approved for, so yeah.. I need to request less, do the TBR thingy, if I still want a book after a few days, go after it, otherwise I’ll never, ever, get through my TBR.
- Read more books from TBR.
😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 I’ll stop now
- Accept review requests.
I’ve been on so many author PR contacts over the last few years that I never have the time to actually accept email review requests from authors and it makes me feel so awful every time but honestly, THERE’S NO TIME TO READ ALL. THE. BOOKS.
- Be more active in the book community.
I’m terrible at this. When I’m not reading, I’m binge watching and between those two and actual life, I’m hardly ever active. I never use Facebook, I’m barely on twitter and I want more time to visit other blogs. This one is top priority!
- Finish my book.
For those of you who knew I did a NaNo back in November, it went great and it actually gave me another idea for a book but there’s no pressure really, this is mostly so that I can finally get the ideas out of my head and maybe move on?
There you have it, some of these are laughable and others I will try my best to achieve this year. What goals do you have for 2018?
