Reading Goals: 2017 Edition

readinggoals2017

Now I have recovered from New Years Eve and wrapped up the December month, it’s time to think about my reading goals for 2017. I still can’t believe I was able to read over 180 for the second year in a row, and I don’t pretend I will be able to reach that amount again… So I have decided to not stress myself and keep my challenges reasonable. These will be my goals:

READING:

  • I have set my Goodreads Reading Challenge to 100 books.
  • Read at least 5 classics (rereads don’t count)
  • Complete at least 5 series (rereads don’t count)
  • Reread at least 3 books
  • Bring my physical TBR pile below 250 books and keep it that way.
  • Read at least one book over 800 pages
  • Read at least 2 books in Spanish
  • Read at least 1 book in Dutch
  • Join at least 5 challenges during the year
  • Keep my Netgalley ratio above the 80%
  • Start a Twitter account and use it regularly


BLOGGING/LIFE:

  • bloggingUpdate more frequently and try not to get too behind with reviews
  • Be more active in the community and try to comment more. I always try to, but somehow it is hard to find enough time to read, blog AND comment on the blogs I follow…
  • Participate in a 5km run! I really have to focus more on my running this year.

Reading Goals: 2016 Edition

Now I have recovered from New Years Eve and wrapped up the December month, it’s time to think about my reading goals for 2016 before I decide what my favorite 2015 reads were. I still can’t believe I have almost doubled the amount of books and pages read in 2014 last year, and I don’t pretend I will be able to reach that amount again… So I have decided to not stress myself and keep my challenges reasonable. These will be my goals:

READING:

  • I have set my Goodreads Reading Challenge to 100 books. I know that is 85 books less than in 2015, but we’ll see how it goes.
  • Read at least 5 classics (rereads don’t count)
  • Complete at least 5 series (rereads don’t count)
  • Reread at least 3 books
  • Bring my physical TBR pile below 200 books and keep it that way.
  • Read at least one book over 800 pages
  • Read at least 5 books in Spanish
  • Join at least 5 challenges during the year

bloggingBLOGGING/LIFE:

  • Finish older reviews that haven’t been posted yet: 0/10
  • Update older reviews to new format: 0/14
  • Update more frequently and try not to get too behind with reviews (example: I still have to write the last five reviews for last year… Oops!)
  • Be more active in the community and try to comment more. I always try to, but somehow it is hard to find enough time to read, blog AND comment on the blogs I follow…
  • Participate in a 5km run! Trust me, for me this would be a miracle. 😉 I’m currently at 2km and counting…

Reading Goals: 2015 Edition

2015readinggoals

With the new year already being two days old, it is time to sit down and think about my reading goals for 2015. Last December I managed to read 8 more books with a total of 2.617 pages, bringing the total number of books read in 2014 to 91 and the number of pages to 31.983. Way higher than I originally anticipated, and a number I probably won’t be able to reach this year. Then again, I won’t be looking for quantity this year; I will be trying to read slower, enjoy more and above all read books I have been wanting to read for ages. More concretely, these will be my goals:

READING:

  • I’ve set my Goodreads goal to read 60 books; 31 books less than my final number last year. Like I said before, I will be aiming for quality, not quantity.
  • weekend-reading1Read at least 5 classics (only those I haven’t read before count)
  • Finish rereading the Harry Potter series (last three books left)
  • Complete at least 5 series (can be trilogy as well; rereads don’t count)
  • Bring my physical TBR pile below 50 books and keep it that way (currently 85 books are waiting to be read…)
  • Read at least one book over 800 pages
  • Read at least 5 books in Spanish
  • Join at least 5 challenges during the year

 

bloggingBLOGGING:

  • Finish and improve all my older reviews
  • Update more frequently and try not to get too behind with reviews (example: I still have to write the last two reviews for last year… Oops!)
  • Be more active in the community and try to comment more. I always try to, but somehow it is hard to find enough time to read, blog AND comment on the blogs I follow…
