I've been trying to think up some good reading goals for the year, and while my list is short and sweet, it's good to have it up somewhere so I know I'm accountable somehow.
2012 Reading Goals:
- Read 200 books. Thanks to really keeping up with Goodreads in 2011, I surpassed my 125 books goal, reading 149 books by December 30th. I think I can easily hit 200 this year!
- Branch out. I'm very fond of my YA dystopia and adult paranormal, but I want to read more. I definitely want to dip my toes in more historical fiction and more mystery novels, as well as contemporary YA and straight up high fantasy.
- Read Lord of the Rings. I was 10 when I first read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I have this very clear memory of my late grandfather putting a giant copy of the LOTR trilogy in my hands at the bookstore and telling me I would enjoy it, and I did. I've read it every single year since, without fail.
- More challenges! I find challenges are an excellent way for me to pick and choose what to read, since I'm horrible about wanting to read everything that looks even remotely interesting. (My Goodreads to read shelf is out of control.)
That's it! I have reviews for Hushed and New Girl coming in the next day or two, so look out for those. Happy New Year!
