TGIF #2: Reading Resolutions

TGIF is a weekly meme, hosted by Ginger at GReads!
This week's question:

Reading Resolutions: What are some of your reading goals for the new year?

First of all, I have joined quite a few reading challenges for 2012: the Debut Author Challenge, the YA Mythology Challenge, the YA Contemporary Challenge and the 2012 TBR Reading Pile Challenge. You can see regularly updated lists with the books I plan to read here.

I also joined the Goodreads 2012 Reading Challenge for which I'm planning to read 111 books (pretty number, isn't it?), but actually I'm hoping to get a lot more reading done.

I'm also hoping to read quite a few of my "own" books which are either waiting impatiently on my shelf or on my Kindle for me to pick them up. That's actually why I joined the 2012 TBR Reading Pile Challenge, because I'm starting to feel bad about neglecting the books I've spent quite a bit money on.

Other than that, I don't have any real reading goals for 2012. I just want to read the sequels to the amazing books I've read last year, find new authors (especially indie authors) and have a lot of fun continuing this blog. :)

What are your reading resolutions for 2012?


  1. Great resolutions!
    I'm fighting my TBR pile too! Hopefully with at least some success.

    Happy Friday! My TGIF and FF post

  2. Awesome goals! There are quite a few sequels I want to read too, plus some fantastic authors I was introduced to in 2011 that I want to read more from in 2012.

  3. I definitely agree about picking up my "own" books. I was perusing my piles yesterday and I realized I own a lot of great books! I'm booked solid for January, but I'm going to try to read more of my own books too!

    You can see my TGIF here :)

  4. That's a great number there - 111
    I've kept my reading challenge at 80 books again, but I hope to get to 100. Will see how much free time I get this year ;))

    Happy midnight reading!

  5. 111 books? Impressive!! I don't try for a number --- makes me less anxious that way. :)

  6. Those are some good resolutions. I've only joined one challenge so far (Evie's TBR Pile Challenge, which I recommend if you're wanting to dig into more of your "own" books). I want to join more but I don't want to overwhelm myself. lol

    Also, if you're looking to dig into your pile, you should join up with my new monthly meme, Random Reads ( Digging into my virtual pile is one of my resies to so that's why I made it. But there are people who are using their physical bookshelf with it as well. I think it'd help if you're interested. :)

  7. 111 books is a pretty number!! I'm hoping to tackle some of the books I already own as well this year. :) Happy FF, Carina!
