2017 Reading Goals

With school being rather busy right now, it’s sometimes hard to make time to do some reading. However, I am starting to make more time in the evening to get away from revision so that I can spend time with my family and actually do things that I want to do. Life carries on beyond A Levels and revision isn’t something that I want to be thinking about before I fall asleep. 

Reading is something that helps me to relax and unwind and the last thing I think about when I’m curled up with a good book is school work. That’s the reason why I’ve set my Goodreads’ 2017 Reading Challenge to 100 books. For those of you who don’t know what this challenge is, it’s basically a number of books that you set yourself to read throughout the year. You add them to your Goodreads shelves to keep track on how you’re doing. I know that a lot of people end up feeling like they’re racing through books to try and get to the end of the challenge without really enjoying the book. However, I’m not going to particularly mind if I don’t end up reading 100 books this year but I want to make the effort to find more time to read. 

I know that the challenge is going to give me the chance to finish a lot of series’ that I’ve started but haven’t had a chance in finishing yet. I’m hoping that it’s going to give me a chance to discover a lot more books in different genres, especially in genres that I don’t really read much of.  One of the most important things that I want to do, as well as finding that sheer love in reading, is to support authors. Regardless of how big or small they are, I want to be able to support their writing and share how much I’ve enjoyed it. 

So,I may have mammoth task ahead of me but I’m looking forward to getting through it and I’m so excited to see what adventures I get to go on with the books that I read this year. 

If you want to keep up with what I’m reading throughout the year then feel free to add me as a friend on Goodreads here

    Great post! I keep forgetting to make a goodreads account, it sounds like a great website. Great idea to set yourself a reading goal! I'm the same regarding making time for reading, I also have exams coming up but I want to make a little time each day to relax by reading a good book!!

      Goodreads has helped me keep track of my reading so much and the books that I want to read. It's genuinely worth creating an account with them. And I know, exam time gets so hectic but we may as well put some time aside for something that we love. x
