Hello everyone! This is my first Top 5 Wednesday post of 2017! I have really enjoyed taking part in this the last few months and have decided to carry on taking part this year, too! I can’t wait to see other topics we can do over the coming months.
The topic this week focuses on 2017 goals and it can be anything from reading goals to blog/channel/Instagram goals and personal goals! Pretty much anything you want! My goals will mainly be focused on my blog and reading challenges. I’m pretty active on Instagram since I post everyday, if I set a goal for that it would probably be to take more pictures!
1) Read fifty books
I set a goal of fifty books in 2016 but I only managed to read 40/50 which isn’t bad but still ten off my goal! I have set the same target again this year because I know I can easily hit 40 again so my goal this year is to try and hit 50 books!
2) Post more reviews
The past couple months I have posted very little reviews so my goal this year is to try and post a lot more. I have been reading books I haven’t felt like reviewing so I might split it more fairly this year. For example, instead of reading a chunk of books I know I’m not going to review, I’ll read a couple ones I am interested in reviewing and then switch to ones I know I definitely won’t review. Hopefully this will work!
3) Read Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
Just thought I’d throw this in because its a series I have been wanting to read for a while but just never have. I also hear it’s being made into a TV show so I’d really like to read the series before that happens! I always like reading the book first so that nothing taints or influences my view of the characters and the story.
4) Be more active on other people’s blogs
I don’t really like or comment on many other posts so I’m going to try and like and comment on more posts I see. I sometimes end up reading posts but never liking or commenting on them and I don’t know why because it’s a really good way to connect with more bloggers, especially if they share your love for books!
5) Get a full time job
My final goal is to get a permanent full time job that I will enjoy! I currently work in retail and it’s okay but I graduated from university with an English degree so working in a shop is not what I want to do with my life and it’s definitely not what I went to university for, you know? I want a job more suited to my degree and I’m hoping blogging will give me more experience and will help me secure a full time job. Hopefully 2017 will be a good year!
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! What are some of your 2017 goals? Feel free to leave a link to your post in the comments!
