New Year Book Tag


I saw a tweet today from @KatherineSunde3 (bibliomaniacUK) talking about book challenges - how many books read in a year and I thought I'd share her tweet and talk about how my challenge had gone this year too as its a good tag to take part in over this weekend. 

This year has been a particularly rough year for me as I''ve somehow lost my reading mojo and subsequently managed to read less than 50 books. In previous years, I'd read upwards of 100 so although I do feel a bit disappointed in myself, I'm entering 2018 with a more positive frame of mind.


How many books are you planning to read in 2018?

 I'm going to set myself the same target for 2018 as I did in 2017 - 52. Although I didn't quite achieve it this year, I feel it is achievable next year. Hopefully I'll far surpass it as my Netgalley shelf alone is immense, not to mention my physical bookshelves!

Name five books you didn't get to read this year but want to make a priority in 2018?

Name a genre you want to read more of?

I'd really like to read more sci-fi, maybe not the really heavy stuff, but books with a more light - hearted feel I could definitely appreciate.

Three non book related goals for 2018?

To continue on my weight loss journey and to hopefully achieve my target weight by this time next year.

To remain positive whatever life throws my way.

To try to achieve one thing each day that I am proud of.

What's a book you've had forever that you still need to read?

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

One word that you're hoping 2018 will be?
