As I’ve said like a million times 2015 was a great year for me in terms of reading. I discovered and read some amazing books that have gone on to become my favourites. However, I did play it quite safe and in 2016 I want to step outside my comfort zone and read some books that have intimidated me.
So I have 6 bookish resolutions I want to complete and they are:
1. Read 35 books
Even though I read 55 books last year, I’m setting my Goodreads challenge at 35 books because I intend on reading some very thick books. Its also my final year at uni which means I have loads of school work and exams I need to be revising for. And I don’t want the pressure of trying to meet it.
2. Finish series that have been completed
With all of these I have two or three books left and once I’m done with those I finally can start a new batch of series.
3. Read 3 classics
I always find classics hard to read, not because they’re boring but because they take a lot of effort to read. Case in point, Jane Eyre which I have been “currently reading” for three months now.
4. Read more literary fiction
This is genre I have neglected recently and I want to get back into it.
5. Read more diverse books
This one speaks for itself
6. Complete the Around the year 52 books challenge
This is a fun challenge that will hopefully push me to read books I wouldn’t of otherwise have read. Here’s the link.
Those are my 2016 Bookish resolutions. I didn’t go overboard and I think these are all achievable.
As always, thanks for reading
