It’s been a fair old while since I got involved with a book tag 😦 I’m aiming to do many more in 2018! What better way to start than with a NEW YEAR BOOK TAG which I blatantly stole from Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek and I’m not even sorry about it!
HOW MANY BOOKS ARE YOU PLANNING TO READ IN 2018?
After a rather good 2017 in regards to reading (finished on 75 books) I have set my target for 2018 of 60 books. I’m hoping I’ll be able to get more read as my TBR is a little out of control at the moment – but with it being January 12th already and I’m four books down….let’s see how I go!
NAME FIVE BOOKS YOU DIDN’T GET TO READ IN 2017 THAT YOU WANT TO MAKE A PRIORITY IN 2018.
- A LITTLE LIFE by Hanya Yanagihara
- FINAL GIRLS by Riley Sager
- DEFENDER by G.X Todd
- THE GOOD DAUGHTER by Karin Slaughter
- RAGDOLL by Daniel Cole
NAME A GENRE YOU WANT TO READ MORE OF.
Horror! I’ve got a nice little stack of Dean Koontz, Stephen King and Grady Hendrix to be read – I just need to get through them!
Just so we are clear on this as well…..I can READ horror, but I can’t WATCH horror!
WHAT’S A BOOK YOU’VE HAD FOREVER THAT YOU STILL NEED TO READ?
Thankfully I don’t have too many unread books on my shelf now that are over two years old! I made a conscious effort in 2017 to try and clear my ‘old’ TBR as soon as I could – but there is one book that still winks at me as I walk past…
JURASSIC PARK by Michael Crichton
I picked up this STUNNING hardback edition of JURASSIC PARK and THE LOST WORLD on a visit to New York back in 2016. I could not walk out of Barnes & Noble without this book. I NEEDED it both in my life and on my shelf. A shelf where it has waited for me to pick it up and dive in. I’ve only ever watched the movies – so I am more than keen to read these!
ONE WORD YOU’RE HOPING 2018 WILL BE?
Oooh…I could go all philosophical or witty…or just plain basic! There’s many things I am hoping 2018 will be for me, but to sum it up in one word… ENJOYABLE.
I want to actually ENJOY blogging. I’m guilty of falling victim to bloggers anxiety; why don’t I have ALL the followers? How do I make my Instagram pictures look better? How many shares and tweets do I get? It can drive a person crazy! At one point I was starting to lose track of why I even started blogging in the first place. Not good.
So for 2018, I want to read what I want, when I want, review how I want, take pictures how I want and be grateful for every like/share/tweet – no matter how many and just ENJOY reading. ENJOY blogging and ENJOY the social aspect.
Following from Drew – I won’t be tagging any specific bloggers to take part in this tag. However, if you do take part – be sure to take us in so we can see your post! 🙂
