2017 Reading Goals

I know, I know, 2017 already started so once again I am late with this post. I hadn't actually planned on doing this but in the last few days I've thought of a few things I want to make an effort to change this year reading-wise, so why not sum it all up in a 2017 reading goals post?

First off, I have set my goodreads reading goal to be 50 books this year, which is less than the past few years, but I want an achievable goal for 2017 that doesn't stress me out the entire time. It would definitely be nice to never see 14 books behind schedule on my goodreads this year. I also don't want to have to lower it like I had to do in 2016, because that's just disappointing. I felt like 50 books was achievable while still being a little bit of a challenge.

I have also compiled a list of 8 books I want to read this year:
  • The Last Star by Rick Yancey, because I need to finish this series.
  • Ruined by Amy Tintera, because this was the first book of many I received in a Fairyloot box and I haven't read a single one of them.
  • Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, because I'm curious to see whether this will live up to the hype.
  • The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness, because I want to give Patrick Ness another chance.
  • The Archived by Victoria Schwab, because I love every single one of Schwab's books so why haven't I read this one yet?
  • Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo, because I read the first two books in this series and I finally want it to get really awesome.
  • Made You Up by Francesca Zappia, because there's too much YA fantasy on this list (and this cover is gorgeous).
  • The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, because there's too much YA on this list.

Another thing I want to accomplish is to read 15 books off of my current TBR. There are just too many books that I've owned for a long time and actually really want to read but never do. I always get way too caught up in the excitement around new releases, and while that's okay too, I want to make an effort to read books that I've had for a while too.

That's it! What are some of your reading goals for this year?
