2018 Bookish Goals


2018 is well and truly underway and that means that most of us are working on achieving our New Years Resolutions. I have made a few personal goals to work towards in 2018 and I might talk about them in a later post but for now I want to talk about my bookish goals for 2018.

I realised towards the end of 2017 that I needed to set some goals with regards to books in 2018. I'd been really slacking with my reading and blogging come the end of 2017 and it did suck. I felt like my heart wasn't in it anymore and for someone who had been so passionate about books and reading I knew I couldn't go on like it.

I am hoping these goals will bring that passion back and hopefully make me a more established reader and blogger.

2018 Bookish Goals

  • Read 70 books: I set myself a challenge last year to read 50 books and a few days before 2018 I hit it. This year I am upping the stakes and challenging myself to read 70. It's going to be hard but fingers crossed.
  • Plan my blog posts: Up to now I haven't actually planned any of my blog posts, they have just been topics I have thought about that day. This year I want to write down plans for each post I want to do.
  • Post regularly on Amy's Bookish Life: I want to make sure I post more regularly on this blog. I want to at least have 3 - 5 posts up a week.
  • Gain a following: I would love to gain a bigger following on Amy's Bookish Life. I don't feel like I have a big enough one yet and I would love this to change.
  • Stop buying books for the sake of it: In 2017 I brought a lot of books and some of them I haven't even read yet and some I am not as interested in as I first thought. To save money and space on my bookshelf I am only going to buy a book if it really interests me.
  • Continue with bookstagram: I took a leap and became part of the bookstagram community towards the end of 2017 and I am so glad I did! I love it and it's a great place to meet fellow bookworms and be as creative with photos as you want. I am hoping to get to 1k followers by the end of 2018.
  • Discover/comment on more book blogs: I'll admit I don't really comment on other book blogs and this is probably why I don't have a huge following. This year I want to comment on more blogs, get to know my fellow book bloggers and feel more a part of the community.
  • Read out of my comfort zone: I seem to have my preferences for what genres I love to read. In 2018 I want to get out of the comfort zone and read more genres that I wouldn't usually read. I want to especially read more crime and thriller novels. 
  • Read once classic a month: I haven't read that many classics so, this year I want to read at least one a month.
  • Go to more bookish events: I want to go to more bookish events this year be it conventions, signings, book launches etc. I already have my eye on YALC and YALW but I want to discover and attend more.
So there are my bookish goals for 2018. Do you have any? Let me know in the comments!
