Hello 2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! Let’s start 2018 off with some goals for the year. I’m going to go back to posting monthly wrap up posts and possibly the odd Friday in Focus post too.

Goodreads Challenge – 80 books. This s lower than other years but I think it’s more achievable than 100.

Backlist Reader/TBR Pile – 30 books. My TBR pile is out of control so this year I’m aiming to tackle it.

Around the World in Books Reading Challenge  – 12 books, 12 places. This is one I designed myself.  Pick 12 places around the world and choose a book set in each of those places. I haven’t decided an order as that may be too restricting but the places I have chosen are:

Spain
Italy
Greece
New York
Canada
Paris
Prague
London
cornwall
LA
Scotland
Thailand

Keyword Challenge  – read at least one book each month whose title includes one or more of the key words for that month. The key words for January are White, Ice, Year, Baby, Hat, Dance, Top, Road, If.

Netgalley Challenge – 50 Books. Another thing that is out of control. I managed to read 41 quite easily last year so lets up the anti a bit.

Christmas Reading Challenge – 25 books. Christmas is my favourite time of year and I just cannot resist those pretty covers.

Paperback Challenge – 10 books. My bookshelves are full of books I haven’t read so I’m aiming to put down my kindle and read 10 books off my shelves.
