Top Ten Tuesday – Bookish Resolutions/Goals

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature created by The Broke and the Bookish but is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is “Bookish Resolutions/Goals.”

I’ve posted my specific 2018 reading goals in a previous post, but I’ll add to them here.

1. Read 75 books (Goodreads challenge). I’m already three books ahead on this challenge, so I have a feeling I’ll blow this goal out of the water.
2. Read at least 25% non-fiction books. I try to squeeze in as many non-fiction books as possible! Knowledge is power.
3. Complete the 2018 AtoZ Reading Challenge. The goal of this challenge is to read one book from every letter of the alphabet. I love the idea of this challenge. So fun!
4. Exhibit restraint when requesting ARCs. I have several ARCs I’ve requested over the last couple months that I still need to get through. Moving forward, I want to keep this list to a modest number, reading only 1-2 ARCs each month.
5. Find time. I read a lot already, but I want to find more time to read. All too often I kill precious minutes playing with my phone, when I could be reading.
6. Step up my Bookstagram game. I like taking pretty photos, and books are such beautiful, willing subjects. I plan on spending more time and effort taking delightfully bookish pictures.
7. Be more present on social media. I want to continue to grow my readership, and part of the way I want to do this is through being active on social media. I enjoy reading other people’s posts and engaging them in bookish conversations, so this should be fun. If you’re not following me already on social media, check out my links below!
8. Write better reviews. I’ve upped my review game at the beginning of 2018 by ranking books on several different qualities, writing spoiler-free reviews, and spending time describing what I like and don’t like in a book.
9. Take notes. I read a lot of books, and if I want to write great reviews, I need to take notes. I’ve started taking diligent notes when I’m reading a book and highlighting key moments I want to talk about in my reviews.
10. Hit 20,000 blog views. As I said above, I want to continue to grow my blog and its readership. I want to continue putting forth thoughtful content that people want to read.


Let’s Talk!

  1. Congrats on being so far ahead with your Goodreads challenge! I’m also aiming to mix more non-fiction into my reading this year. I had the same general goal last year too, so for 2018 just surpassing the 8 non-fiction books I read in 2017 would be satisfying enough for me 🙂

  2. amazing goals!!!!!! Netgalley and I have a strange relationship, because I keep accidentally requesting terrible books, then I have to awkwardly give a low rating for a book gift. But I have had a few good ones, so it’s worth it to go forward ❤ also, I recommend as a nonfiction, Vincent and Theo by Deborah Heiligman. It reads like a fiction, but it's 100% factual about the brothers' beautifully close bond ❤ one of my favorites!!!!!
