I may end up having more than just five reading goals for 2018. However, I think they will all fall into these five categories.
#1 Catch up with all overdue ARCs
If you read my State of the ARC December post, you may have noticed how atrocious my overdue stats were. It’s my goal to get caught up on all my overdue reads. I’d love for ARCs with only future release dates to be waiting for my attention, and not books from 2011! This may not be possible, but hey, let’s shoot for the stars anyways.
#2 Meet my Goodreads reading goal of completing 200 books!
Yeah. I may be crazy, but I think I can achieve this…
2017 I was able to read a little over 150 books. A few months were quite unproductive, so I think if I remain diligent in knocking books out, I should be able to do it.
Joining a few reading challenges and accountability groups will help me along with this as well. So, I’m actually feeling pretty positive about this one. It’s the reviewing stage that takes me the longest!
#3 Meet my #BeattheBacklist reading goals of AT LEAST twelve books!
I know this sounds like a low amount of pre-2018 books to read in a year. And trust me, I’m going to read more than that. In my original post, I pledged twelve books, and I want to make sure that those books are the first priority. Many of my ARCs will apply towards this reading challenge, so I’m planning to have well over twelve reads.
#4 Complete AT LEAST forty books for the 2018 #PopSugarReadingChallenge
I have yet to post my Popsugar reading plan, but I’ll have that up soon. The Popsugar Reading Challenge is (obviously another reading challenge) that has the reader reading a wide variety of books.
There are forty reading prompts in the original challenge, and fifty if you participate in the advanced challenge. So, there’s a quarter of my books for the year! 😛
If you are interested in checking out this reading challenge, head over to PopSugar’s site for more info!
Keep out an eye for my post for this challenge later in the week! Let me know in the comments if you are participating too!
#5 Obtain AT LEAST an 80% Feedback Ratio for Netgalley
I use Netgalley most for requesting ARCs. In doing so, I’ve accumulated quite the back load of approved ARCs that still need reading. Currently, I have a 54% feedback ratio, which just isn’t cutting it. I don’t know about you, but I feel guilty when I am behind on something! To alleviate some of my own reader’s guilt, as well as keeping my word as a reviewer, I want to get my ratio way up this year!
