 What are some of your bookish goals for the coming year?

Julie Review Avatar Julie

I remember the bookish resolutions I made at the beginning of 2014, and then pretty much ignored them when life happened. Maybe this year I won’t go overboard on creating the list of hope to do in 2015.

  • Use the library more.
  • Read the books I own, with the help of our challenge.
  • Write book reviews within a day or two of finishing the book.
  • No more requesting books on Netgalley unless I actually plan to read that book ASAP.
  • Write more bookish list posts on this blog.

Hmmm …..I know this year was super busy for me since I decided to go back to school. I did not meet my reading goal and a few other goals I did not meet as well. This year, my bookish goals are as follows:

  • Read the books I already own, which is why I am doing our challenge.
  • Read more of my netgalley requests
  • write some reviews this year.
  • Comment on other’s blogs more
  • Get my good reads shelves better organized.


Would it be wrong of me to just steal Julie’s goals? Probably! Here’s my list of goals:

  • Read the books I already own.
  • Read my weekly magazines the week I receive them.
  • Read and comment on other blog posts.
  • Write book reviews within a day or two of finishing a book.

    I would love to write reviews within a couple of days of finishing a book, but since I read so many at a time, and tend to finish them in groups, I doubt that’s possible. But all of your goals seem pretty reasonable. And I’m all for setting goals you know are attainable. Good luck!

      Guess that means you’d have to write a bunch of reviews in one sitting huh? Not very easy.

    Ugh you guys are preaching to the choir about “reading book I already own”. I bought 93 books in 2014 and only read 12 of them…TWELVE! I plan on buckling down on my monthly TBR list and visiting my fantastic library more often to help curb my spending! Good luck with your goals ladies!!

      Octavia, I think 12 books is an awesome number! I mean,I also think it is awesome that you bought 93 books, so maybe I am not the best judge????

      Yea it is too easy to request too many books. I don’t allow myself to log in anymore heh.

    I think my resolution would be to leave off reading challenges, and not to accept so many review copies, which would give me the freedom to read according to my mood. I keep making this resolution every year, and every year I get tempted into challenges and review copies 🙂
