2015 is well and truly over and we are already edging our way into the new year. And no new year would be complete without new year resolutions. So without further ado, let's look at my bookish resolutions for 2016 and also how I fared on my 2015 resolutions.
1. Goodreads 52 Books Challenge
As I have already discussed in my previous post (see here), last year I successively completed my GR challenge of reading 150 books. However, I came away realizing quality trumps quantity. So this year, I will attempt to read 52 books instead and use the spare time left over for my next few challenges.
2. Reread More Books
In my effort to complete my 150 books challenge, I really missed the ability to reread books last year. So this year, I am determined to revisit some of my old favourites. While I don't have a particular number in mind of how many books I would like to reread, there are some books that I have in mind that I am already really excited about rereading. More on those later this year!
3. Read 5 Classics
My goal last year was to read 10 classics and at the end, I only managed 4. Despite the fact that I thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them, I don't think I will ever become a fan of classics and read them without being prompted to. This year, I will reduce my classics goal and see if I can reach it.
4. Read 5 Award-Winning Books
I read The Narrow Road to the Deep North and All the Lights We Cannot See last year and they were both amazing! I am keen on continuing trying out novels that I wouldn't have otherwise picked up.
5. Blog 52 Book Reviews
In 2015, I only wrote 19 book reviews so this is still an area that I need to improve on. So my goal for this year is to blog at least one book review a week.
6. Blog More Consistently
In line with the previous resolution, I want to maintain a fairly consistent blogging schedule this year. I know work, study and life will occasionally get in the way but I am hoping to avoid taking 2 months breaks away from this blog.
7. Learn More About Blog Design and Coding
This is still very much an area I need to improve on. I would love to learn more but need to find the time this year to do so.
Anyway, those are my bookish resolutions for this year! I'm not going to make the list up to 10 for the sake of 10 because in the end, that will be just more resolutions for me to break. I think 7 is a good number. :)
What about you guys? What goals have you set for yourself this year?
