Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the lovely ladies at The Broke and the Bookish  now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl 


This week’s topic is Top Ten Bookish Resolutions or Goals

I’ve been meaning to write a post about my blogging/reading goals for 2018, so when I saw this topic coming up for TT I held off until today.

I’ve got quite a few ideas that I’d like to incorporate into the blog this year and here are a few.

1. NetGalley Ban for January 

I’ve already started this ban and haven’t done too badly so far. One thing that definitely helps is not having a visible bookmark for NetGalley on my browser, out of sight out of mind.

2. Book of the Month

I’d really like to highlight a particular book that I’ve enjoyed each month.

3. Audiobook of the Month

In the same vein as the previous goal I’d like to highlight an audiobook of the month and hopefully encourage more people to try them out.

4. Discussion Posts

I love reading other bloggers discussion posts and really want to give this a try. One of my sisters very kindly give me a Lit Chat box from Book Riot a while ago and it’s got some great bookish conversation starters.

5. Buddy Reads

I loved the buddy reads I took part in with Zuky@Book Bum and would love to do some more. So do get in contact if you see me reading the same book as you and want to join in.

6. Read My Own Books

I’m sure we all feel the same way about our own books being neglecting in favour of ARCs, which is one of the reasons why I joined the Beat The Backlist Challenge this year.

7. Read My Library Books

I have a terrible habit of borrowing library books and not reading them, so this year I’m only going to get books out that I’ll definitely read, maybe. :/

8. Keep Up With Reviews

I’ve got a backlog of reviews to write and it’s a horrible feeling. So this year I’m going to keep on top of them! Oh hang on that book really needs to be read, oh I really do need to check twitter and blog hop and…

9 Review My Own Books on the Blog

This year I definitely want to post reviews for my own books on here and not just ARCs

10. Enjoy Reading and Blogging

Last but definitely not least, keep on enjoying reading and blogging about books. 🙂
