My book goals for this year are: 
  1. DECLUTTER. I have so many books and I've invested so much emotional energy into keeping them that I've decided it's time to stop putting so much of myself in the hoarding of books. So, as I read them, I'll be selling books that are in good condition, giving away ARCs on my blog, and giving books that aren't in great condition to friends/family. I will be keeping my Harry Potter books, books that I KNOW I will reread and books that have sentimental value.
  2. READ. I have so many books and I'm nowhere near having read them all. I got more into collecting books than actually reading them. I also went hardcore into eBooks (just easier as a parent, especially to read at night in bed) and I left all my physical books behind. So I want to read as many hardbacks and paperbacks as possible this year.
  3. NETGALLEY. I made the mistake of getting so caught up in the fact that I could get free books when I first started book blogging (I know, I know) that I went crazy on NetGalley and requested way more books than I could handle. I'm still super way behind and am honestly completely embarrassed by my NetGalley percentage. So this year I want to work even more on my advanced reader copies and get my NetGalley percentage up.
The books pictured are the first ones I plan on digging in to in 2018.
