I’m not good with New Year’s resolutions but when it comes to reading I really need to set some goals for myself. I feel like I’ve just read whatever last year and now I want to put some more structure in it. Here are my bookish resolutions for 2014.
I have started so many new series over the last two years but I only completed a few of them. I want to change that this year. I don’t want to put a number on it but I want to finish as many as possible. I want to finish the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa this year because I’ve only got one book left. I also want to finish Vampire Academy sometime this year. Of course I still need to finish the Legend trilogy by Marie Lu and the Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi.
Read more (high-) fantasy books
I found that I really enjoy reading this genre and so I want to read more of it. Of course I’m still reading the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin but that’s about the only adult high-fantasy I’ve ever read. Besides that I’ve read YA fantasy (Throne of Glass series and Fire and Thorns trilogy) but it’s not exactly the same. I ordered The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles) so that’s a start. I’m also eyeing the Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson.
I’ve read a crap load of books last year and some of them I can hardly remember how the story goes. I would like to change that but I don’t really know how. I challenged myself to read only 40 books this year on the Goodreads Reading Challenge. The reason I did this is because I don’t know what’s going to happen this year regarding school. I don’t want to feel tempted to read instead of study. If I find, throughout the year, that I will surpass this goal and I can still up my game and read more, I will change the amount of books on the Challenge.
