Six for Sunday

The January theme for Six for Sunday, hosted by A Little But a Lot is Fresh Starts and today’s prompt is for Bookish Resolutions. I haven’t made any resolutions this year, but I have had a think about this one, and I’m going to try really hard to meet these ones!

  1. I read almost exclusively middle-grade fiction, so I’m going to try to read at least one of the adult books on my reading shelves each month.
  2. I now have a ridiculously large owned TBR which I keep adding to, so I’m going to try to read a few from my owned lists each month to try to make a small dent in my shelves.
  3. I read a lot of fantasy and historical middle-grade, so I’m going to try to read some more contemporary books to broaden my reading.
  4. I have a habit of starting some series, enjoying them, buying the next book and then not reading them, so I’m going to try to get to more next books in series that I own.
  5. I’m going to aim to remember to post more of my reviews on Review Sites rather than just on my Blog. I am terrible at remembering to cross-post reviews.
  6. I really want to get my 100 Reviews Badge on NetGalley this year.

Have you made any bookish resolutions this year?

  1. I made a real effort last year to read at least one adult book a month too and even though I still have to stop myself falling down the MG rabbit hole on the whole I’ve been pretty successful and I’m glad I’ve done it. Good luck with your efforts to do the same!
    I need to work on reading more contemporary too, and more YA,wgich always loess out here!
    Good luck getting to 100 netgalley reviews!

    1. I’m hoping I can meet my goal to read more adult books but already think I won’t be able to in January! One of the children in my class recommended Jelly by Jo Cotterill which I thought was really good.

      1. Will have to have a look at that one! I wouldn’t worry about Jan, there’s some months I manage more adult and less kids and vice versa. For me, having one of each on the go but fairly set times to read them helps, so I read my kids one during the day, eg on my lunch break or before work, and my adult in the evening. It doesn’t always fit like that but it has helped keep me reading both!
