Happy New Year! I’m sure that 2017 is just as welcome to everyone else as it is to me. There were plenty of highlights in 2016 but also plenty of things that I’m happy to be leaving behind me. That being said, here is a loose January TBR followed by some goals of mine for 2017! Let me know what you think!

This year I’ve decided that I’m not going to be making rigid TBR lists each month like I did last year. I found that often this stopped me from feeling motivated to read particular books. Instead, I am going to select those books that I will be excited to read in that month, for example, new releases, and then just read whatever else tickles my pickle at the time!
Here are the books I am excited to definitely read in January!
A Quiet Kind of Thunder – I started reading this today and I am already in love with it!
Caraval – I feel like I’ve been excited for this book for my whole life! I also can’t wait to see which of the four beautiful covers I get!
Wing Jones – This book is everywhere on Twitter and I’m super excited to read it, I’ve heard such great things and the book itself is gorgeous!
Another book I will hopefully read this month is Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. I have two copies of this and absolutely no excuse as to why I haven’t read it yet!
All in all I am hoping to read 8 books this month which I think is manageable (don’t quote me on that though!)
It’s that time of year where we all share our goals and aspirations with the world. So here are my bookish goals for 2017!
- Read 100 books
- Read more diversely
- Be more consistent on my blog and stick to my posting schedule
- Be more proactive in commenting on other blogs
- Cross post my reviews
- Not to get TOO keen on Netgalley and actually catch up on my eARCS before requesting more
- Reduce my TBR by not buying 100000000 books this year
- Go to YALC 2017
- Get more involved in Twitter chats (follow me: @kellysrambles)
Most importantly, I just really want to enjoy my reading and pick books to read that I’m reading simply because I want to. There is such much pressure out there to read or not read certain books and actually, if I want to read something, then I will.
