My New Year’s Bookish Resolutions 2018

Hello bookworms!

I hope 2018 will be a better year than 2017 for all of us. I have high hopes that this year will be more full of kindness and open-mindedness, more bookish and less prejudicial.

So here are my bookish resolutions for this year, as I attempt to read more out of my comfort zone and open my mind to new ideas and try to be a better, more well-rounded person. And spend less money in books. Which is unrealistic, but one can dream.

In 2018, I hope:

  • To read more fiction outside of the US/UK (at least 5)
  • To read more non-fiction, especially feminist literature (at least 2 books and 1 of them being a biography)
  • To buy less books (hahaha), hopefully maximum 5 per month
  • To write more (possibly in English)
  • To read at least 5 classics
  • To finish at least 2 series I’ve started
  • To be more creative with my blog posts
  • To maybe create a tag??
  • To read and discover more diverse reads and #ownvoice stories!
  • To meet a fellow blogger!! That would be fantastic!

How about you? What do you hope to accomplish this year?

    • Thank you, Jay!! By Thomas Hardy I only read Tess of the D’Urbervilles, and I have another on my list but forgot the name… I’ll take a look at that one! And yes please, I’d love recommendations of classics!

      • Ooooooo, I love Jane Eyre! That’s a top 10 for sure.

        Hmm… I don’t know what to recommend, there’s so many and it depends on what you like! Definitely some Jane Austen. Northanger Abbey is underappreciated in my opinion, but Emma is wonderful too. I LOVE Little Women, but that’s not as universal I don’t think. I always recommend The Scarlet Pimpernel. An abridged version of The Count of Monte Cristo is also one of my favorites if you like adventure. Les Mis is really good (also abridged, just a suggestion, lol) if you’re looking for great literature. Seriously, I could go on all day. Maybe I should write a post… haha

        • Maybe you should!! I’d love to read a post with classic recommendations! I love Jane Austen and hope I’ll read Northanger Abbey soon… Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite classics of all time. Little Women was ADORABLE, and I love Jo! I have The Count of Monte Cristo, but it’s the unabridged version, I think… still have to read it, but I’ve heard awesome things!

  2. This is a great list of goals! I, too, am trying to read at least three-five classics this year. I’m hoping that fares better in reality than it will in my head. Good luck!


  3. These are great goals! I hope you’ll be able to succeed in all of these πŸ™‚ It is so hard not to buy books, or at least not too much. One of my resolutions is also to try and spend less per month on books. Meeting a fellow book blogger would be SO amazing, I’d love that πŸ˜€

    • I hope so too, Marie!! The problem with meeting a fellow book blogger is that most of us are introverts hahaha but I hope to meet at least one this year! Living in Germany, it’s not too difficult to get a train and go visit fellow German bloggers, but I don’t know many…

      • Ahah yes, and… well, we are not always living close-by. I don’t know many French bloggers to meet, haha πŸ™‚
        Oh, I know a couple of German bloggers : Jackie from toomuchofabooknerd and Swetlana from thecaffeinatedbookwormlife πŸ˜€

  4. my wonderful and great naty! first of all, i wanted to say it here again: happy, happy new year!! i am so glad and happy about meeting you here and i really can’t wait to meet you in person (hopefully) this year! you are so kind and i love talking about books with you! feel yourself hugged! πŸ™‚ ❀

    other than that, i think you picked some great resolutions for this year! this is all manageable and you can do this. i didn't do many resolutions. i just have a budget for book buying now which is reserved for new releases i really want to read. other than that i just have my charles dickens project and finishing all my started series. i think that's doable. but the most important thing is not to stress out. just read for fun and blog for fun and do it with love and not with pressure πŸ™‚
