2017 Reading Resolutions and Goals

Looking back on 2016

These were my resolutions:

1. Don’t force myself to finish a book

I DNF’ed a few books this year and I did not feel guilty about it in the slightest. There are soooo many books I still want to read, I’m done wasting time on the ones I don’t connect with.

2. Read more Shakespeare

Didn’t get around to this unfortunately.

3.

I read the Grisha trilogy + the Six of Crows duology. There was also Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, which I liked. Passenger, A Darker Shade of Magic, Between Shades of Grey, Salt to the See, All the Light we cannot see…

So I think I did well 🙂

4. Stop wasting time on Pinterest/YouTube, read instead

This is still a weakness. I just love Pinterest and Youtube… But I did manage to complete my Goodreads challenge of 35 books so I’m happy..

5. Keep better track of the books I read

I’m still not very good at taking notes while I’m reading, mostly because I lose myself when I’m enjoying a book. I lose track of time and my surroundings and I just forget.  I have kept track of the books I’ve read on Goodreads and that has helped me.

For 2017

I want to:

1) Read 5 Dutch books

There have been a lot of highly acclaimed Dutch books this pas year and I just really want to read them.

2) Reread 2 books

I want to reread The Song of Achilles and maybe the Night Circus.

3) Read a play

2016 was the year of the disaster that was Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I refused to read it, I never will. I want to read a play, I’m still figuring out which one.. Recommendations are welcome!! 😉

4) Read 40 books

I managed to read 35 books this year and I think there’s still room for a couple more.

5) Continue to discover the fantasy genre

I’ve rediscovered a love for fantasy and I want to read some more of the fan favourites. I’m just not sure where to start… but I’m sure I’ll figure it out.


And those are my goals for 2017.

I also want to write more and I have a couple of projects to look forward to. It’s going to be a busy but interesting year.
