Top Ten Twednesday: 2015 Bookish Resolutions

Top Ten Twednesday: 2015 Bookish Resolutions

Top Ten TuesdayMy apologies for being late with this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, but I’ve been having a bit of a rubbish last week of the year… Still, like everyone else I am looking back on 2014 and forward to 2015 so I did not want to miss this week’s TTT.

2015 Bookish Resolutions

  1. Cull my bookshelves.
    I have been clearing out my bookshelves in 2014, giving away books left and right that I felt certain I won’t be reading anywhere within the next ten years. I’ll continue to do that in 2015. I am a very organised person on the whole and will not let my bookshelves get out of hand!
  2. Read the books I own.
    Despite regularly clearing out my bookshelves, they still house an embarrassing 279 unread books at this moment… *cough* In 2015, I want to read the books I actually own! Let’s see if I can make a dent into that tbr.
  3. Don’t buy as many new books.
    This was actually going better and better this year. Lately I haven’t been feeling the need to buy so many new books. I do still want to allow myself to buy new releases that I actually want, and I’m giving myself some leeway for my go-to genres, but I’ll definitely be strict with myself (or so I say). I don’t want my bookshelf to cross that invisible border of 300 unread books!
  4. Finish series I’ve started.
    Was going quite well this year, so I’ll try to keep that up.
  5. Read 52 books.
    My goal for 2015 will be to read 52 books again. Like this year, last year, the year before that…
  6. Stick to challenges.
    I haven’t made up my mind yet about which challenges I’ll join in 2015, but I want to stick to them more.
  7. Read whatever I want, when I want to.
    That clashes a bit with the ‘stick to challenges’ one…
  8. Put down books I am not enjoying.
    If a 100 pages in I still don’t like the book, I should just put it down. I didn’t create that life-is-too-short shelf for nothing!
  9. Keep on top of this blog.
    I am not the most active blogger but I am really enjoying blogging this year and I’m so happy I met all these amazing people. I’m not going anywhere in 2015!
  10. Be more active socially.
    In the book blogging world, that is. Comment more, interact more… 🙂

  1. Your goals are so similar to mine this year! 🙂 It’s a huge struggle for me not to buy MORE and MORE books when I have loads of them languishing on my (virtual and real) shelves. I wish you luck with these!
    Happy New Year!
