Last year I participated in a number of Reading Challenges with varying levels of success.
I enjoyed taking part in all of them and my total failure at my TBR Challenge, reading books I already owned, confirmed what I’ve already known for a while – I’m a massive fan of the library. I don’t think I realised quite the extent to which I rely on the library for new reading material actually.
While the challenges were fun, I’ve decided to try something different in 2016.
I will be participating in the Goodreads challenge, as I’ve done that one for a number of years, and Flights of Fantasy 2016, but other than that I will create a list of Reading Resolutions.
This is my list of reading hopes and goals, and a few books I REALLY want to read in the coming year (mostly from my TBR, so doesn’t include new releases).
I’ll still do a monthly update about my progress and might add to this list as time progresses.
Books to Read:
The Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling (re-read)
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
Thief’s Magic by Trudi Canavan
Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan
The Cuckoo’s Calling + rest of series by Robert Galbraith
The North and South trilogy by John Jakes (re-read)
Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell (re-read)
The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher
- To participate in as many reading events and readathons as I can and keep my blog regularly updated with progress.
- To introduce a few new features to my blog. I’ve had them in mind for a while now and a new year seems like the perfect time to begin.
- To catch up on outstanding reviews – I make MASSES of notes whilst reading and just after reading a book, but for some reason I’ve fallen behind on getting reviews up on the blog, so this year I hope to complete and publish my reviews soon after finishing the book.
- To TRY and make a better effort to stop neglecting the books I already own.
- To read a variety of genres, but also carry on indulging my love of fantasy/dystopia/post apocalypse stories.
- Non Fiction? It’s not something I would usually go for, but for variety, I may give some a try, and would be happy to hear any recommendations.
- To keep a monthly update post going to record how well I’m doing in keeping to my goals in terms of blogging and reading.
