Reading Goals

Every January I do pretty much the same thing – make a list of the books I read the year before, make up my reading goals for the current year, start a blog and join several reading challenges that I’d really like to accomplish but deep down know my study routine when school/college starts will make it nigh impossible to conclude without becoming sleep deprived. And though every year I hope that I may develop more will power and stop sleeping so many hours on the weekends, or just not join the challenges altogether, it’s the New Year! I need goals. I need something to make me happy about achieving, something that’ll make me crave these brand new days of possibilities. Cheesy, very cheesy. That’s what too many girl movies can do to you, be warned.

So this year I started at WordPress and I really would like to keep it up (even if I can’t figure out how on earth to fix that top half there ^, no matter how many tutorials I read), and I’d like to start this year by being organised (like usual [cof] [cof]), by making a list of what I wanna do and what I’m reading and something cool that happened. I know my diary is filled with this stuff, but this last year I was a bit negligent and didn’t highlight the book titles and I reeeally don’t want to read the full, university-sized notebook and the old, tiny, Barbie one I wrote about random stuff in 2011. So I’ll just say I read less than I wanted. A lot less.

With that being said, I really like Goodreads.com¬†– I just do. Love finding nice reviews that make me want to run to the bookstore and get the book (only to find out they’re not currently available). If anyone ever accidentally bumps into this post and manages to read through these pointless and slightly sleep-deprived lines (and has a Goodreads account), this is me. As you may notice, I only put stuff up during December/January, my long boring holidays. I always give up on the books I say I’ll be reading and start slacking the minute I start counting how many I’ve read so far, so I’m not even going there this year.

Maybe just a tiny tab with the books I’ve read this year. Just to keep a record.

I’m so totally slacking this year.

  1. Try reading Washington Square by Henry James or The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde. They’re both fairly quick reads, especially for someone who doesn’t have a lot of time on their hands, but these books are definitely worth the read.

      • Hmmm… I’ll have to think about that. Maybe Portrait of a Lady by Henry James? Although she’s a little confused and her strength is only a facade to cover her confusion.
        What about Little Women? Or The Constant Princess in the Historical Fiction genre has a strong leading lady, as does The Help by Kathryn Stockett, which is a fabulous read and an even better audiobook.
