Top 5 Wednesday: 04/01/17

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a merry merry Christmas and a great New Year's. For my first blog post of 2017, I am doing a T5W!

This week's topic is: 2017 Goals

These don't have to be book related, but my specifically are. I will be doing a video on my youtube channel later this month about my goals in general if you want to hear more about that!

5. Read more diversely:
For the past 2 years I have been trying to catch up with all of the popular reads and I haven't given myself a chance to expand my reading tastes. This year I want to venture into different genres and read more variegated novels as I enjoy debating my opinions on controversial themes. 

4. Be more critical with my reviews/ratings:
During my time on goodreads and reviewing books I have noticed how lenient I am with giving ratings and reviewing a book to my full potential with complete honesty. I am still trying to figure out whether I should rate a book on how I feel about or how well it was written to me. So when I figure out that I think I will accomplish my goal, but in the mean time I will try my hardest to be as savage as possible! Maybe not savage, but you get the point.

3. Make a specific reading time everyday:
Anyone that makes a "How To Read More" video/post will include this tip. It is definitely harder than it sounds, but it is extremely important. I know for a fact that if I set a certain time to read everyday that I would read many more books a month. Hopefully I can do this in 2017!

2. Read at least 1 classic a month:
I think this goal makes a lot of sense as I want to major in English so I think I need to start reading more classics. I have many on my shelves, but I always push them to the bottom of my TBR as they seem like too much of a commitment and I feel like I won't read them quick enough. But I have to start somewhere I guess.

1. Read 50 books:
So, last year I started my goodreads goals at 35 books then I moved it up to 40 books and I managed to read 41. I would be very proud of myself if I can succeed in reading 50 books and hopefully more?! 

Okay so that's my top 5! I hope you all get to achieve your goals or at least give it your best! Have an amazing year and read many great books :)
