T5W – 2017 Goals

t5w new header

It’s that time of the week again when I bring you the Top 5 Wednesdays, created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know how T5W works you can go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. This week theme is 2017 Goals : 

– These do not need to be reading goals specifically, they can be any goals you want to talk about. Reading goals, blog/channel/instagram goals, personal goals…anything! –

Read at least 65 books

Like every year I’m participating on the Goodreads Reading Challenge. In 2016 I read 139 books but I spent 9 months of 2016 being unemployed and having all the time in the world to read. Now that I don’t have as much time I decided to set my reading goal a little bit lower and I’ll want to read at least 65 books. In the last case scenario I’ll have to be constantly changing the number of books I want to read just like I did last year.

Complete the New Adult Reading Bingo

As you might know I decided to create a New Adult Reading Challenge for 2017. So this year not only I’ll try to read more new adult novels but I also want to complete the New Adult Reading Bingo. Let’s just hope it happens.

Read more fantasy and more non-fiction

In 2016 I read mostly contemporary romances and while I loved I really want to go back to read more fantasy like I used to do. I also want to read more non-fiction because there are a lot of non-fiction books out there that I’ve been meaning to read for a really long time.

Control myself a little bit more on NetGalley

I might have a small problem with the NetGalley request button but I’m trying to change that. I really want to keep having my ratio above 80% and I really want to read all the books I still have on my shelf so in 2017 I hope to request fewer books and to read and review most of them on time.

Read more diverse books

I think this one is pretty self-explanatory. Like everyone else I’ve been aware of everything that is said in the book community and I agree that is important to read more diverse books and support more diverse authors so I hope I’ll do it more in 2017.

These are some of mine 2017 Reading Goals. What about you? What are some of your goals?

  1. Good luck for all of these! I don’t have a goal for a certain amount of books, just that I want to read more – and by that I mean little bits every day. Lets hope it works out ❤


  2. I just stumbled across your blog and I love it! This is such a good idea! I wanted to write a post about the New Year, but this is so fun. I have a lot of similar goals for myself that also include writing more and stuff. I hope you succeed in doing all these things!

  4. Great goals- I myself have to read a lot more! I love books and the world they create and drag you in, but I’ve been so stressed I’ve felt like I had no time- now though I’m ready again. I hope you reach your goals and good luck 🙂 ❤


  5. I think I can help you reach your reading goals!

    I know reading out of your comfort zone can be, well, uncomfortable, so here is how to make it a little easier. Reading book reviews allows you to have an idea of what a book is about before you read it, and you also get to hear somebody else’s opinion on that book. That will make you more excited to read the book!

    I post book reviews over inspirational, nonfiction books, which have a lot more to offer than most people give them credit for. Please stop by and read my reviews at thewrightread.com
