This year I have both things I want to achieve and things that I'm letting go of for the sake of my sanity.
(I'm sure there are more but these are the ones that jumped out at me, the ones I own, so the ones I'm holding myself to!)
Basically, moving forward, I'm going to be a better-behaved blogger.
Bookish Resolution #3 - Binge The Series
I have numerous UF series that I want to read, own many of the books, and haven't read them - or have partially read them.
This year, I'm changing that! This year, I'm going to read & finish all these series:
The Chicagoland Vampires (I've read 6 out of 13)
The Kitty Norville Series (I've read 4 out of 13)
The Lunar Chronicles (I've read 0 out of 4)
The Hush Hush Series (I've read 0 out of 4)
The Selection Series (I've read 0 out of 5)
The Red Queen Series (I've read 0 out of 4)
The Dark Days Series (I've read 0 out of 6)
The Mercy Thompson Series (I've read 0 out of 12)
The Magnus Chase Series (I've read 0 out of 3 books)
The Trials of Apollo Series (I've read 0 out of 5 books)
Hades Hangmen Series (I've read 0 out of 10 books - I'm counting the 2 novellas)
Crown of Shards Series (I've read 0 out of 3 books)
If I succeed in this it'll be 72 books.
Yeah... 72 books.
This combined with my "Nuke NetGalley" resolution kind of put my Beat The Backlist goal into perspective, don't they! 😆
Because I'm not a completely delusional, I'm going to have to implement steps in order to achieve the above and generally maintain my sanity.
Some of those steps I've listed below!
(And will tick off two of the series listed in Bookish Resolution #3.)
There are few books/series that I'm dying for and will immediately jump on so, moving forward, I think I need to limit my ARC intake to those books for the sake of my sanity, TBR pile and reading goals.
Obviously, not all companies/authors are the same so I'm not excluding these events entirely but I'm going to have to be much more selective in the things I sign up for.
I already started down this path last year so it shouldn't be too difficult to maintain and refine it this year.
The more I read, the less time I spend online.
This year, I intend to do much more reading so I know that something has to give to allow that.
To prevent things piling up and getting overwhelmed, I need to establish a routine for myself and stick to it.
And that's that!! It's a long post if you've made it to the bottom well done and thank you! lol
A lot of this has been brewing for a while so I'm happy to finally be doing something about it!
