Happy New Year, everyone! This book tag is all about bookish goals for 2018. It definitely helped me to work out what my goals are, and it will be fun to look back on this in December and see how well I did!

How many books are you planning to read in 2018?
I have my Goodreads goal set at 40 books. I read 37 last year, so I think 40 is an attainable number. I was going to attempt to read 50, but I just think that will cause me stress, and reading is supposed to be fun, right?
Name five books you didn’t get to read last year but want to make a priority in 2018.
- Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
- The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
- The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
- The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson
- Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart
Name a genre you want to read more of?
Fantasy. You read that right: fantasy. I have always disregarded fantasy books (especially YA fantasy) simply because of how popular they are and because I’m a bit of an anarchist. But I realized recently that there’s no real foundation for my dislike of fantasy, so I’m going to give the genre a try in 2018.
What’s a book you’ve had forever that you still need to read?
The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison. This is a book that I’ve had literally for years, and I’ve even started it a few times. I could never get into it, so maybe it’s just time to pass it on.
One word that you’re hoping 2018 will be?
Productive. I am hoping that in 2018, I can not only read 40 awesome books but that I can also fill my life with lots of positive fulfillment. Read more about my goals for 2018 here.
