1. Goodreads challenge
I talked about this before but my Goodreads goal is to read 30 books (I hope to read way more but I don't want to feel pressured).
2. Read the Backlist Challenge
This is the first time I am participating in a challenge and I'm really enjoying it so far. I want to read the books that have been on my shelves forever like Vicious, Ready Player-One, The Bookthief and Fangirl. I say this every year but it never happens. This year will hopefully be different! I'm proud to be a Dewey Dragon, by the way!
3. Read 5 books over 500 pages long.
4. Read at least 5 adult fantasy books
5. Read at least 3 classics
6. Read at least 5 literary fiction books
7. Don't buy too many books when I don't have the space to store them
This is becoming a real problem. My shelves are too full and I have no space to add another bookshelf. A booklover's life is difficult!
8. Write at least 100 blogposts.
I almost got there last year (94 blogposts) but my teaching practice schedule was insane (I basically did it in one semester but ideally it is spread over two) and I wasn't able to blog and read as much as I wanted.
9. Catch up on my Netgalley reads.
I now have 20 books approved and still need to read and review five of them. My current ratio is 75% which is not bad but I want to read the others before I request new books. The only problem with this is that I can't access most of these any longer and they are long overdue. I feel bad that I haven't read them yet.
10. Be more active in the book community!
I love this community and I feel like I'm doing better now that I have Twitter, Instagram and I am participating in a challenge, but I like to be even more active. The problem is, I don't really know where to start.
