I set myself some reading goals for 2018, and admittedly i didn’t do all that good with them. Although i enjoyed the challenge, i think i set myself too many goals and it all became a little overwhelming to deal with. I got some of them done, and i’m pleased with that, but choosing later on in the year to not put as much focus on them felt really good.
Last year, I set some goals for my reading and I completed barely any of these! To be completely honest, I barely even thought about them! I’ve realised that for me, yearly goals aren’t something I find helpful. They didn’t work for me last year and I’m changing the way I’m setting my goals this year. Continue reading
In the last year or two me and Sophie feel like we’ve settled in to a reading flow. We know how much we can read and what we prefer reading, along with the stories we will enjoy and wont enjoy. Sarah achieved her reading challenge of 2017 (yes, well done), and wanted a challenge in 2018 by setting some reading resolutions.
It’s the first Top 5 Wednesday of the month! This weeks topic is the goals that we want to achieve in 2017. These can be blog or channel goals, reading goals or even personal goals. The possibilities are endless on this post! I was planning to make a ‘bookish resolutions’ post at some point, but maybe that information is better off in here. I have few goals i want to achieve this year with the blog and reading, so here they are.
Both of us have a lot of books on our TBR piles that we want to get around to in the next few months over summer. Summer feels like the perfect time to read as the world seems to slow down a little in the heat and there is much more time in the day to sit tight with a book. We’re both hoping that we can get plenty of reading done, so here are some of the books that we think we’ll be able to get around to! Continue reading
Can you actually believe we’re less than a week away from 2016? This year has gone ridiculously quickly! I’ve been in the process recently of writing my end of the year blog posts and I realised that I read A LOT of YA contemporary in the last year. There were a few exceptions obviously, however the majority of what I read was Young Adult. I never usually set myself reading goals (because who really follows them?) But I wanted to set myself some basic rules and/or goals for reading in 2016.
