This tag originated on BookTube, but I first saw it on As Told By Tina. I realize that most of us have already given up on our New Year’s resolutions, but I’m still pumped for mine, so let’s do a tag.
The New Year’s Book Tag
How Many Books Are You Planning To Read In 2018?
My Goodreads goal is set at 100, but I’m not doing great so far. One hundred should be challenging but accomplishable.
Five Books You Didn’t Get To In 2017 but are making a priority in 2018?
I’m pretty excited for these:
|I know this is six, not five. Shut up. I've never been good at math.|
What genre do you want to read more of?
Middlegrade. I feel like I neglect that age group. I should probably read more poetry, too. I read lots of classic poetry in school, but I’m not too familiar with the current stuff.
Three non-bookish goals for 2018?
- Run 10k without exploding.
- Make more money so I’m not broke all the time.
- Travel somewhere interesting.
A book you’ve had forever that you still need to read?
This question is tricky because I got my TBR pile down to 0 in November 2017. Almost all of the unread books I own now were bought on Black Friday, so I haven’t had them “forever.” The book that’s been on my TBR list the longest is Son by Lois Lowry. I put it on my list in March 2013. Still haven’t read it.
One word that will define your 2018?
One word? For the entire year? My first thought was Nachos, but the question probably wants something more profound than that. (Also, nachos are always my first thought.) Okay, let’s go with Change. That’s profound and slightly cryptic, right?
