I started this blog in August and since then, I have read 17 books.
My favourite books have got to be The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, A Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger (review to come soon). I read other good books but these really resonated with me. But if I had to choose one, then The Catcher In The Rye would win every time.
And my worst read? Well, unfortunately it’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I desperately wanted to like it but I just didn’t.
My goal for 2017 is to read 30 books. I don’t want to set my target too high otherwise I’ll get disheartened but I think this is doable, even whilst at university for half the year.
My TBR pile is relatively small at the moment with only 9 books or so on it but this will give me an excuse to go book shopping and who doesn’t like that?
I have a few bookish New Year’s resolutions for 2017:
- Read The Lord of the Rings. I bought The Hobbit months ago and still haven’t read it, but one day I’ll get round to reading them all.
- Reread Harry Potter. I am so desperate to relive the magic. I don’t think I’ve read them for at least 4 years although part of me is a little bit worried they’ll have lost their magic…
- Continue this blog! It’s keeping me reading and that’s all that matters
But in order to achieve this, I really need to make sure I organise my time and my life better whilst at university. My main priorities will be completing my Masters degree and finding a job but this is going to take up a lot of time again if I’m not careful… Wish me luck! 😛
Happy New Year everyone! 🙂
