Goals? Decisions? Slightly More Structured Thoughts? Which ever.
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, then you know I am not the planning type. I don’t make TBRs because I don’t ever stick to them, and I don’t plan out my reading in any sort of way. However, there are three things I have my mind set on for 2018 and I am gonna talk about it today.
Reread ALL the Books
This is true for a lot of people, but before Goodreads, and Booktube and blogging, I used to reread books all the time. I would finish a book and start rereading it immediately. Most of my reading has consisted of rereads. Nowadays, I only reread Harry Potter, and that I only manage only two or three of them a year. No more! This year I am gonna reread a bunch of all favorites and if that means I don’t read anything new, that’s fine. I really want to revisit things like Percy Jackson and A Little Life and His Dark Materials. I loved those books so much, so I am hopefully gonna love them again and finally remember the details.
More Diverse Reads
Now, I seek out books that are diverse regularly, but I feel like a stick mostly to books that feature POC or LGBTQ+ characters, and that I could possibly broaden my reading more. I stay clear of mental health issues in books, because I am a psychologist (in a semester I’ll be, that is, yikes) and I tend to really nitpick at those books, and the experience is never good, neither for me nor for the book. But I’d like to find some other stuff to read about, maybe through one of those Diversity Bingo charts and what not. That would be great. Any recs are always appreciated.
Okay, this is already not going great, since I requested a bunch of ARCs. But this is more about me not reading ARC after ARC, but reading some books I really want to get to in between. It’s about setting priorities and having more breathable room in between reading ARCs. Even though ARCs are books I want to read, it always feel like a bit of a chore, so no more of that.
So those are the three goals I’ve set for myself in 2018! Have you set any? Do you ever? What are you set on? Let me know!
