8 Bookish Resolutions for 2018

📚 My Bookish Resolutions for 2018  📚

It's time for my first post of 2018! 
I decided to make a post about my bookish resolutions. I don't usually have too many of these but I do have a few that I want to try and accomplish this year.

#1. Goodreads Reading Challenge ► 100 books
In 2017 my goal was 117 books and I read 122. I don't want to particularly read more than that in 2018. I'll be happy if I reach 100 books.

#2. Read one Artemis Fowl book a month.
I always re-read the first Artemis Fowl book by Eoin Colfer and I always say I want to re-read the entire series but somehow I never do so this year I want to try to read one book in the series a month. There are only eight books in the series so I should have enough time in the whole year to do this.

#3. Read more nonfiction.
So in 2017 my most read genre was nonfiction. This was a bit of a surprise because I wasn't really trying to read more books in this genre. I want to continue this in 2018. 

#4. Read more historical fiction.
And this was my second most read genre of 2017. I also want to continue doing this in 2018. It probably won't be very hard since it's my favorite genre to read.

#5. Read more thrillers.
Now this was my least read genre in 2017, I think. It's not because I don't like thrillers because I really do but I just don't know a lot that release through the years or even ones that are already releases. So if any of you have any recommendations I would really appreciate it!

#6. Read more physical books.
I already made this a resolution for me last year and I did read more physical books than e-books but I hope to read even more physical books this year. This is probably the hardest goal for me because I really like how easy e-books are to read and take along with me on trips but I shall do my best.

#7. Read more books when I buy them.
This is something I have really problems with. I tend to buy books and they'll end up on my bookshelf for months or even years. I really want to try to just read a book as soon as I can when I buy it. 

#8. Stick to a monthly TBR
Another goal that will be hard for me. I love setting up monthly books that I want to read but I almost never stick to them. Review books and being a mood reader is to blame for this. Hopefully I can stick to a TBR every month better this year.

So those are my bookish resolutions and goals for 2018. What are some of your resolutions?


  1. These are great resolutions! I also want to read more nonfiction in 2018. I participated in Nonfiction November, kind of on a whim, and now I have this huge TBR of nonfiction books! Good luck with you goals!

    1. I really need to buy some new nonfiction to get started. :)

  2. This are great resolutions! :) Happy New Year <3

  3. I want to read more thrillers too! Do you prefer adultor YA thrillers?

  4. I have the same problem with buying new books and then take forever to read them! Like, I preordered Godsgrave but I'm only now picking it up (instead of the books I just got :p ) Good luck and happy reading!

  5. I'm also trying to read more Nonfiction this year. I have a lot of really good Nonfiction books sitting on my shelves that I just haven't picked up yet. Good luck with your goals!!

    1. I'm always looking for nonfiction recommendations since I don't have any on my shelf anymore rigth now.

  6. Oh, making a list of books to read each month would be the most difficult part for me! And I'm exactly the same when it comes to buying books, and then just kind of storing them :D
    Good luck reaching your 2018 reading goals, Stephanie!

  7. TERRIFIC resolutions, Steph! I can really relate to most of them, but ESPECIALLY Number 7!!!! I do this ALL the time -- buy books that I fully intend to read, but....not just yet, because I'm in the middle of OTHER books! Lol. I think most of us bookworms can relate to this. We just get SO desperate not to let "that great book I just found" get away.... :)

    I admire you for having a goal of reading at least 100 books! I'm a slow reader, so I KNOW I could never read that many in a year, lol. Last year, I read 40, which, believe me, is a bit much for me. Not that I had any sort of goal, lol. I never set goals on how many books I want to read in a year. :)

    Thanks for sharing! Happy reading in 2018!! HUGS!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

    1. I'm a little doubtful about my goal this year because in the last 3 or so years I have always read about 20 less books than the previous year so I'm not sure I can make it to 100, especially since I know I'll read a few books that'll be pretty big like the 4th Outlander book. But we'll see... xD

  8. P.S. Regarding resolution No. 4, I want to read more historical fiction, too. As for No. 5, I want to read more science fiction. I'm not into thrillers that much. Suspense maybe, though! :)

    1. Ooooh I might have some science fiction recommendations if you want them. It's one of my favorite genres. ^_^

  9. Can I steal your resolutions?
    As they seem to be perfect for me, too ;)
    I want to achieve so many of those. Especially reaching my Goodreads reading challenge, read more physical books, and read more books when I buy them.
    I also totally support your Artemis Fowel resolution as I love this series and I've also been wanting to re-read it for forever now (!).
