WLP Wants 2 Know Your Book Related NY’s Resoultions

happy-new-year-2013-wallpapers

Thankfully 2012 has come to a close without a bang, phew. But that means we all have a fresh start with our book goals for the year.

Last year my goal was to read 100 books, of course I surpassed that at 204 with a month off. I also think I said I would review every single book I read…yeah that so didn’t happen.

This year I have decided to keep it simple again and my big time resolution is not to read a ton of books but to savour what I do read. As a reviewer, I try to say yes to everything that comes my way. But this time around, I want to read books slower and take the time to enjoy them like I did when I didn’t have to review them.

I want to know what your book related New Years Resolution’s are, did you make any? Any goals you’ve set for yourself? And how many books did you read last year?

    To read some older books and start series that I’ve been wanting to read but just haven’t yet. Review more and to step outside my comfort zone a bit and read some different things. I used to read a lot more non-UF/PNR stuff but that’s not been case recently.

      Last year I read more romance than PNR/UF, it was a nice change to switch it up.

    I don’t make resolutions. I do, however make goals for myself through the year but I try to keep it within reason and relevant to any situation that I may need a little motivation to keep me going.

    To read for quality over quantity.

    I think I read about 70ish books. I would like to read about 100 books, but I’m loving the savoring concept :-)

      Savour it, that way you’ll remember what you read when book 2 comes out ;)

    I hate you for reading that many books. And by hate, I mean am super jealous. I tapped out at around 70. My reading goal this year is not about numbers but about variety. I realize that I’m lacking in urban fantasy reading, romance classics reading and I’ve never read a sci-fi book in my life. I need to fix this. Any recommendations?

    My 2013 goal is twofold: to write 10,000 words per week… And to track everything I read on my site.

    Recommendation for a series that’s a mix of sci-fi urban fantasy: Allie’s War series by JC Andrijeski. Start with Rook. Favorite series of my lifetime, no kidding : )

    I’m going to try to keep track of the books I read this year and make a list as I go along. I’m going to try to review things more regularly again – last year was a bad reviewing year.

    in 2012 my Goodreads goal was to track 100 books, I hit 150 without tracking everything I read so for 2013 I’m aiming for 200 tracked books.

    I’m going to read the books I have on my e-reader before I purchase any more of them.

    I want to try to read more non-fiction this year and not start any more romance series that will eat up all my free reading time during the semester.

    In 2011 I read 251 books. In 2012 I read 182. Obviously a DRASTIC drop, so my goal this year is 200. Of course, I don’t strive for that, and I don’t race to hurry up and read that many. I just…do. LOL. I read fast. LOL.

    My “real” goal is to review more. I’ve been totally falling down on the job, and need to get back on the reviewing wagon! Also, I need to write more on my blog. *sigh*

    My goal(s) this year was simple: to blog again! I had originally set my reading goal at 90 books, which later became 80 books, and finished at 50 books (I actually read 63 books). This year, I set my goal at 75…that seems reasonable :) In addition, I want to start taking our blog seriously again. I kinda miss it, lol.
