TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: Reading Resolutions

Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads group that posts a weekly "top 5" list for book reviewers to tackle! If you'd like to join in, the group is HERE.

This week's topic was reading resolutions!

Self explanatory. Let us know 5 of your reading goals for the year. 

I was actually planning to do this topic anyway, so here are my 5 reading goals for 2018!

5. Read twenty-four books.

In 2017, I challenged myself to read twelve books, and I did it. In fact, I surpassed my goal! This year, I'd like to challenge myself even more, by reading twenty-four books before 2018 ends. I know averaging two books per month may not sound terribly impressive, especially since there are booktubers who read over one hundred books in a year, but for a college student with a job, it'll be difficult.

4. Read more of the Skulduggery Pleasant series.

A couple of you may have heard of this Irish fantasy series, which has a pretty devoted fandom online, but isn't exactly a household name. I've read the first two Skulduggery Pleasant books, and adored them both. There are nine books in the series, but a second "phase" of books is set to begin this year -- so I need to catch up! I won't promise to being able to read all nine books in the series in a year, but I'd like to read as many as I can. However, since it's been so long, I'll be rereading the first two, before continuing on. I won't be doing full reviews of the first series; I'll be doing SnarkNotes posts instead. Stay tuned!

3. Reread Pride and Prejudice.

Jane Austen's classic romance is one of my favorite books of all time. I'll watch or read almost any adaptation of it, and I can talk your ear off about it. (Seriously. Ask anyone that's ever spent any time with me in real life. They'll tell you.) I'd love to revisit it in the new year!

2. Read something on my literary bucket list.

As some of you may recall, I listed twenty-five books I want to read before I die here. Since then, I've managed to knock off two of the items: Six of Crows and The Disaster Artist. I'd love to get to knock off a couple more in the new year! I can't promise I'll get through the doorstoppers, like Outlander or Les Mis, but I can certainly manage to read at least something on this list.

1. Read at least a little bit every day.

Yep. I'm basic. But for me, this'll be a genuine challenge. I'm easily distracted and I often find it hard to force myself to sit down and read. Even with books I like! But this year, I hope to read a little, tiny bit each day. Even just a page.

(Watch me crash and burn on this in, like, two weeks...)
