1. Goodreads Reading Challenge
So with this year going to be a bit busy for me than what I'm used to, I don't want to set an overwhelming reading goal for myself. So, I'm going to set a safe goal of 70 books for the year. That way I won't feel too overwhelmed with reading. No one wants that!
2. Book Buying Limit
I only started buying books at the beginning of this year and in just 12 months, I've obtained over 130+ books! Kind of awesome! But anyway, with a ton of amazing books coming out in 2015, I wanted to save money so that I can purchase most if not all of them. So, for every three books I read, I'll reward myself and buy ONE or TWO books if there is no new release that I want to buy. This way, I prevent a serious binge buying of books. Not only that, but I'll only be buying sequels to some series/trilogies that I still need to complete. So not only will I be buying fewer books, but I'll also get that much closer to completing a uncompleted series.
3. Find a Good Vampire Series/Trilogy
Ever since the release of the Twlight books and movies, I've been a hater towards vampire books, seeing as the ones I ran into were all either really stupid or incredibly cheesy and unreadable. But as a lover of books, I refuse to believe that there's no good vampire books out there in the world. So this year, I will be going on a year long journey to find one really good vampire book series or trilogy that will win a proud spot on my bookshelf!
4. Read "Iffy" Books
Allow me to elaborate. There are certain books that I kept my distance from for a really long time for various reasons. The Percy Jackson series is one of them. Seeing as it's a middle grade series, I didn't bother picking up the books even when the first movie came out. This year, though, I decided that I would at least give this series a chance since it is loved by people of all ages.
The Hunger Games trilogy is another one that I tried very hard to stay away from. I actually was going to read these books before the first movie came out, but all the hype, the fandoms, the posters, the merchandise, and ultimately the over-obsessed fans ruined the books for me. They ended up becoming a taboo subject for me and everyone who knows me knows that. This year, however, I decided that I'm at least going to read the first book and give it a go. I'm not promising that I'll finish all three books but I'm at least going to try it out.
This book was one I didn't mean to stay away from but ended up doing anyway. I didn't really enjoy the first book at all and the movie was one I don't have any interest in watching again. I have so many people tell me that the second book in this duology is better than the first. I do want to pick up this book within the year, though when I'm not sure, but I will give this second book a go and we'll see what happens then.
