Top Ten Bookish Goals For 2013
1. Lower my TBR pile
I want to read all the books that have been on my shelves for at least a year. Of course it would be even better to get them all read this year, but I already know I'm never going to make that. I also resolve to read at least two books for every book I buy. That TBR pile needs lowering. That also goes for all the previews I keep downloading. I need to read them and decide if I actually want to buy those books!
2. Beat my 2012 goal
Although I set my Goodreads Reading Challenge goal to 100 for this year, I actually hope to beat my goal from last year. This year will probably be a bit busier than last year and I do want to reach my goal (ambitious girl over here :P), so I set it a bit lower to begin with.
3. More reading challenges
Blogging brought so many amazing things with it, including reading challenges! I entered my first one last fall and although I didn't really made the goals I set, I really enjoyed! So far I entered four.
4. Discover more book genres
At the beginning of last year I read YA and Chick Lit. Once in a while I would take a sidestep to another genre, but nothing much. Chick Lit was a bit disappointing for me last year, so I want to discover more book genres! I discovered Contemporary last year and I absolutely love reading those books now, can't wait to discover more.
5. Write more reviews
When I started my blog I wanted to write two reviews a week. I would like to write more! And also make them better!
Last year I re-read Harry Potter and this year I want to re-read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I've re-read LotR every few years and I want to do it again this year. The Hobbit will be my second time reading it. I don't re-read so many books, because of all the amazing books that are published and I haven't read yet!
7. More commenting on other blogs
I feel like a bad blogger these past few weeks, because I haven't been commenting that much! Starting a new job kind of took most of my time away, but I always enjoy reading other blogs, so I have to pick it up again. Well, I already did actually!
8. More non-fiction
I want to read more non-fiction this year. Actually scrap more, because I almost read close to none last to year. I love learning new things, so I hope to read some cool non-fictions books this year!
9. Buy a new bookcase
I buy so many books, they don't fit on my shelves any longer. I've wanted to buy a new one for a while and I still haven't. So I resolve to buy on this year!
10. Get a library pass
Since I mostly read English books and the library here doesn't have an (good) English section I never go. But since my house is already full of books I think I really need to take a library pass and just read more Dutch books.
So, that's it for me. What are your Bookish Goals for 2013?
