Read 150 books.
I read over 120 books in the months of April – December, so I think this is doable! I’m also going to try and not count too many books I read for university, because they don’t really fit into my diverse theme. However, if the numbers start looking a bit squiffy, I might just have to include them.
Try more genres!
I have loved re-discovering SFF in 2016. I also read a lot more YA than I usually do, and have enjoyed every single second of it. This year I want to read things that I never would normally pick up.
This also includes things such as poetry, plays, comics, and non-fiction.
Read more ARCs.
I loved participating in the Interlude Press blog tours in 2016, so I’m going to try and go a little bit further out of my comfort zone and request ARCs from publishers. I know this is pretty standard for some bloggers, but I always feel like I should be financially supporting the authors, too! Unfortunately, student budgets aren’t always the best for that.
Keep track of what I read.
I’ve seen a couple different spreadsheets for keeping track of books, their genres, and whether the authors are #ownvoices, and I love the idea of being able to break all the numbers down at the end of each month/year! Candid Ceillie has a fantastic one that I may just adopt 🙂
Complete the 2017 Diversity Bingo.
Originally I wanted to do it in rows, but I think for at least January I’m going to read my Christmas books and see what squares I can fill! This is definitely my main goal for this year, and I just can’t wait to start.
Do you have any blogging or reading goals? Let me know, I might be inspired to try and achieve some more!
