So I’ve done a few posts talking about my 2016 reading year, but I thought that today I would go through some statistics from 2016 and goals for 2017. Comment below what your 2017 goals are.
‘MY 2016 IN BOOKS’ – GOODREADS
1 – books read: 153/150
2 – pages read: 59042
3 – shortest book: Alice’s Adventure’s in Wonderland by Lewis Carol (92 pages)
4 – longest book: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (896 pages)
5 – average length of pages: 388 pages

MY 2017 BOOK, WRITING AND BLOG GOALS
1 – read 100 books
2 – read more books focusing on mental illnesses
3 – read more diverse books (diversity bingo)
4 – read more autobiographies, memoirs and non-fiction books
5 – buy books that I haven’t heard about before. Go to the bookshop, scan the shelves and pick a book spontaneously
6 – buy less books and accept more review copies
7 – don’t read books just because I feel that I have to. (i.e. if I’m not in a fantasy mood, don’t force myself to read it just because it’s on the top of my TBR)
8 – post 2-3 blog posts a week. Try doing a Tag Tuesday, Friday Favourites, and Sunday review every week if I’m not busy
9 – put more effort into my blog posts, and connect with the blog community: make friends and read other book blogs
10 – finish a draft of a book that I’m happy with and want to keep working on. I have written a first draft for two different books but I never want to continue on with them because I’m not happy with it. I’m currently starting another one which I have high hopes for, so I want to keep working on it even after the first draft.
And I think that’s everything! I think my goals are pretty realistic and I’m excited to see what 2017 holds for me. I was actually studying Psychology at university last year, but I have transferred to study english and creative writing this year, so I cannot wait to be studying something that I really want to study and that I’m excited to learn about.
See you guys soon!
