2018 Reading Goals

The Bout of Books challenge for today is 2018 reading goals. Every year I say I'm not going to do a lot of reading goals, and every year I do them anyway. Here are some things I hope to accomplish this year in my reading life.

Read eighty-five books. My goal last year was seventy, and I completed it easily. I thought I would raise the bar a little higher this year, but still have a doable number.

Complete the Modern Mrs. Darcy reading challenge. I completed the challenge fairly easily last year. This year I have a strategy: read the books for the harder challenges first.

Read more back list books. Last year I mostly read 2017 releases. This year I want to read fewer new releases and more books that have been out for a while. One of the ways I'm going to do this is by cutting out publisher reviews. I love to get free books, but I hate feeling pressure to get a book read in a certain amount of time. 

Read twelve physical books from my unread book shelf. I read a total of ten physical books last year and almost all of them were library books.What can I say? I love my Kindle. I'm hoping to make a good dent in the books on my shelf this year. I'm using #theunreadshelfproject2018 on Instagram to keep me motivated.

Have you made any reading goals this year? Let me know in the comments. I'm linking up with Artsy Reader Girl to share my goals on Top Ten Tuesday.


  1. Those are some great goals. I am going goal-free this year--mostly because I'm trying to eliminate any and all stress from my life. Good luck with your goals! :)

    1. Every year I say I'm not going to make goals and every year i do. I think I have some kind of problem. have a great reading year!
