2017 Bookish Resolutions & #Giveaway

It's 2017 which mean's it is time for some bookish resolutions. Now I have to admit I am not very good at resolutions or bookish challenges so I don't really tend to take part in any, however I do have a few goals I want to share with you all, that I do want to try and meet, hopefully, maybe. I am really starting of positive here (Sarcasm). Any way here are some of my bookish goals 2017!!


I have taken part in the Goodreads Challenge for the last three or four years and I think I have meant my goal once. This year I didn't meet my goal of 100 books, like I didn't meet it last year either. I got to 80 books this year which is great I think...

This year I am going to do the Goodreads Challenge again and go for ... 100 books!! I am going to try to meet it, hopefully this year is the year.


I started taking #bookstagram photos back in May this year and have really enjoyed it. This year I want to continue doing that and try to be posting regularly on my account. If you want to follow me my user name is megan_readingawaythedays 


Now the only "challenge" I am actually taking part in is the Throwback Book Club created by author Adam Silvea. It is basically  a book club where you read any book you want that's on your TBR but the only rule is that the book can't be published in the year you read it. It seems really laided back and a really good way to get books of my TBR. For more info click here and to check out Throwback Book Club Book Tag I did click here


So this kinda goes with the book club above. This year I wanted to read a book a month of my bookshelf that I have wanted to read for so long and the challenge just happened to come in handy. I will have a post up on Thursday of all about the Twelve Books I need to read in 2017.

So that's it! Just a few little personal bookish goals I want to meet. In the spirit of a new year, and new books. I decided to have a giveaway!

  3. I don't do challenges either, except for the GR one (I also am going for 100 books!), but I have some goals too. Reading certain specific books I've been saying I want to read but haven't gotten around to is also one of them! (Kinda like your 12 books one.) Good luck with your goals!

  6. Those are great resolutions! I like the idea of the Throwback challenge - kind of like the backlist challenge that a few bloggers are running. I want to read more backlist titles this year too. The Goodreads challenge is always my go-to! I haven't decided if I want to join any more, besides that one. I don't have too many other blogger resolutions, though I have a few personal ones. =) Best of luck with the resolutions!

    Happy New Year, Megan. =)

  15. Hi, Megan! :)
    Great resolutions! They're not too many, and they're easy to achieve AND enjoy at the same time. Some people forget that the whole point here is reading and having fun while doing it, and set ridiculous goals that they never get to reach. Good luck with yours! Btw, I love spending time looking at bookstagram photos, so I'll definitely check out your account ;)
    Just like you, I don't have many bookish goals for this year. However, I do want to read more classics - Jane Austen has been waiting for me for a long, long time ^^ And more books in English, not only to practise my language skills - I speak in Spanish, but also to keep up with the new releases coming out every month. And boy, do we have some great ones! I'm particularly excited about Caraval, ACOWAR *of course* and Spindle fire ♥
    Have a wonderful 2017! And good luck with your bookish goals!

    PS: and thank you so much for the giveaway ^^

  18. Really excited as TWO of my favourite authors have books out this year. Ashes To Ashes by Paul Finch and The Caller by Chris Carter will be amazing if their other books are anything to go by. :)

  19. My bookish resolution is to only read one book at a time, I'm terrible for reading 2 or 3 at a time. I'm really excited for King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard this year!

  21. My book resolutions this year are to read at least 1 book a week. I am really looking forward to The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr. I have read all her previous novels and thoroughly enjoyed them.

  22. I love reading but didn't get much chance to last year. Determined to get more reading time this year!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I just want to make more time to read, I always seem to be doing something else and take an absolute age to read a book from start to finish x

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm not very good at resolutions either! That's why I always keep it simple. Like this year, for example. For 2017, my one resolution is to read at least 10 books from my TBR list =)
    I wish you a great year, Megan! xx
