1. Read one hundred books.
Last year (wow – it feels so weird to be saying “last year”) I read 186 books. So I think I’ll be able to accomplish my goal. The problem with setting goals like this, though, is I don’t want to force myself to read. Reading should be enjoyable. I’d like to keep it that way.
2. Read at least ten books by Aussie authors.
I love Aussie authors. I should read more of them. Not sure how many of them I read in 2014, but I did manage quite a few.
3. Try branching out into other categories: Eg, read more New Adult.
Ones not written by JLA, because at the moment she’s my favourite NA author and I’d like to explore more. If you have any recs, then let me know . . .
4. Read some classics!
I personally find classics very hard to get into – and therefore enjoy. However high up on my TBR list is The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. And I think I’ll love that one. (I hope.)
5. Give non-fiction books a proper chance.
I’ve only read one non-fiction book in my entire life. Gosh, that sounds awful . . . but it’s true. Non-fiction is something I don’t usually lean towards. Last year, though, I did read On Writing by Stephen King which I liked.
6. Pick up a book I usually wouldn’t.
For example – historical fiction, or a large book that would ordinarily put me off. I might find a hidden treasure which would otherwise been lost to me.
So, there are my reading goals for 2015. Hopefully I’ll be able to achieve most / all of them!
