With the New Year here, I thought it appropriate to make some New Year’s Resolutions … regarding books!!
1) Read 50 books in the year 2014.
This one isn’t a major goal for me … whether I complete it or not. However, I thought it would be fun to set a goal like this as I never have before and at least try!
2) Catch up on my TBR pile.
Reading the books that are in my To-Be Read pile is the major goal that I wish to complete (or at least come close to completing) this year. I know that so many amazing-sounding books get released every month, but I really want to catch up on some of the books that are in my TBR pile, too, as I bought those books because they sounded amazing!
3) Buy fewer books.
This kinda ties in to the previous goal. I want to focus on reading what I have already bought instead of ordering new books when I want something new to read. I do have a few more book hauls coming through the first few months of the New Year, however. Hopefully I can really focus on what I already have (or at least buy fewer books in each haul)!
4) Rid my shelves of books that I will not read again.
So I buy a lot of books (hopefully less in the New Year). And some of those books are flops for me, personally. I didn’t enjoy them at all or at least not enough to ever reread them. So I want to get rid of those books that are taking up space on my shelves and make room for the books that I really do enjoy and want to reread!
5) Finish rereading and re-watching the Harry Potter series.
In 2013, I started rereading the Harry Potter series, re-watching the movies, and writing a blog post on reviews for them. I am currently on the 5th book in the series and want to continue reading them over again!
6) Begin The Mortal Instruments series and The Infernal Devices trilogy.
Lastly, I NEED to start these 2 series! I know that many people absolutely LOVE this series, and I would like to see what it’s all about!
