This is late and I am so sorry for that.
It’s that time of year again. Time to make yourself promises that will more than likely be broken before the month is out. At least that always seems to be the case for me. This year I’d like to break my losing streak when it comes to new year resolutions. I am hopeful that I can achieve these goals this year and feel very accomplished when 2019 rolls around.
As always, the Goodreads group for Top 5 Wednesday, which is hosted by the lovely #ThoughtsonTomes and #gingerreadslainey, can be found here.
2018 Reading Resolutions
1. Actually Complete My Goodreads Challenge
Much to my dismay I was unable to achieve my goal of reading 50 books this in 2017. Reading slumps hit me hard last year and for the last few weeks of 2017 I was simply not in the mood to pick up a book. I did read 44 books, which is not bad, but I have faith that I can do better. I set my goal for 50 books again this year so wish me luck!
2. Reread The Harry Potter Series By J.K. Rowling
It’s been a hot minute since I read Harry Potter. I miss the world and the characters dearly, so I am making them a priority in 2018. I have a soon-to-be four year old, so I’m considering buying the illustrated editions that have been published to read to him.
3. Read Diverse Books
I feel that everyone should make this a priority. I want to better understand those who are different than me, and I want to see the diversity of humanity represented in literature. We should all be able to find characters to whom we can relate.
4. Read At Least 3 Non-fiction Books
I never read non-fiction books voluntarily. Since I’ve been out of school for a couple of years, I feel as though I’m not learning as much as I should. To remedy that, I want to pick up some non-fiction about things I’m interested to learn about.
5. Read Manga
I love anime, so I don’t know why I’ve never read manga. I’ve seen a lot of manga intrigue me, so that’ll be happening in 2018.
