I debated on whether I was going to set goals for this year or not, but I decided to set a few light goals for my reading and blogging life to work on over the year.
Hosted by: The Broke and the Bookish
1. Read 55 books
2. Read at least five non-fiction novels- I have quite a few nonfiction novels that I have owned for years and have yet to read, I want to get to them this year.
3. Lay off of Book Outlet for a while- I buy way too many books at one time on that site, and I have so many books from there that I need to read already. I'm going to try to stick to buying one or two books at a time this year.
4. Go through my books and organize them- I need to go through my books and get rid of what I don't think I will ever read, and put books I have already read but don't plan on rereading in a pile to put in my classroom after I graduate. I have my books separated between my apartment and my parents house, so this will be a bit of a task.
5. Complete my Classics Club Women's Literature Event list- You can see the list here. I'm really excited for all of these books.
6. Post at least four Literary Look Posts- I love putting these posts together, but they take a lot of time to research and write up, so I tend to put them off, or push them to the back-burner when I'm busy with school work.
7. Use my time more wisely- I find myself procrastinating a lot during the semester by just laying in bed and scrolling through my phone. I'm not saying I'm going to stop procrastinating school work, because that would never happen, but I want to make my procrastination time more productive. I want to spend more of that "nothing" time reading, blogging, or doing other stuff that makes me happy and feel productive.
8. Reread at least five books- I love to reread, and planned to do a lot more of it than I ended up doing last year, so this year I want to make sure I get more rereads in. I won't be making a list of specific books; I'll just pick up whatever I'm in the mood for.
What are your goals for the new year? Do you track your goal progress through the year, and if so, how?
