2017 Reading Goals

In 2015, I had a great reading year, probably my best ever. With that in mind, I set some pretty ambitious reading goals for 2016. If you read last week’s post, you know I achieved zero of those goals.

It may seem silly but I have set reading goals for myself for 2017. I love reading at I was to constantly get better at the things that I love and the only way to achieve that is to set goals for yourself.

  1.  I’m going to read for 30 minutes daily. Even if it means setting a timer for myself like my mom had to do with my daily reading log in grade school. What I realized looking back on 2016, was that I didn’t have the time to read, but I didn’t make the time for it either. I’m going to make time to read because reading is something that I love to do.
  2. I’m setting my goodreads challenge at 30 books. 50 was way too ambitious last year. I read 23 books in 2016 (I didn’t finish my reread of The CliqueI till the first of January), so I feel like 30 is pushing myself to read more and to be realistic about it.
  3. I’m not making any promises but I’d like to finish the other 4 books in the Harry Potter series that I haven’t read yet.

Much Love,

  1. I’m glad you’re going to be pushing yourself more this year than you did last year. I, personally, am pushing myself harder when it comes to my reading. Last year, I only read 44 out of 50 books that I had planned on reading and I never stuck to what I was going to be reading that month. This year, I plan on reading 56 books and sticking to what I pan on reading for that month throughout the month.


    1. I’d love to read 50 books but it’s not realistic with my job and school. I like how to achieve your larger goal, you’ve set smaller goals within that larger goal. It helps make it more obtainable! Good luck with that and happy reading!
