Top 5 2018 Bookish Resolutions

“2018 will be my book year.” I said.

“I´ll expand my horizon and have a more open mind towards other genres.” I said.

Right before we waved the old year a goodbye and welcomed the new year Stefan ( the hubs) and I decided to make a list. Our very own 2018 New Years Resolution list.

Aside from the things we´d like to achieve together as a family, and as a young married couple, we thought it would be a good idea to make a separate list just for ourselves.

Making a list for myself did make me laugh out loud. I´ve never created a New Year´s Resolution list for myself. What would I write down? That I want to eat healthier? I try that every day. How about going to bed earlier? * wave off * I kissed that idea good-bye after my oldest was born. And saving money? Hey, being middle-class is also expensive. So what could I possibly add to my own New Year´s list? I wanted to add something meaningful because, let´s face it… Adding things like remembering to clean my glasses isn´t that meaningful.

I had an idea.


Morgana´s Revolutionary, Apocalyptic 2018 New Year´s Resolution Book List

Ha! Now, that´s something I can always work with. Books. It was only a matter of thinking about the stuff I would like to achieve regarding books or blogging. My revolutionary and apocalyptic ideas began to bloom.

  1. Cut Down On Social Media

    Yeah. Blogging can be tough, especially when you don´t know where to lay your eggs ( meaning, where to focus my attention ). In 2017 I was all over the place. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, WordPress, Wattpad, Tumblr. Even Goodreads… Was being scattered on Social Media worth it for me? Absolutely not. I figured I´d have fewer headaches if I´d concentrate on a few social media that actually meant something to me.

  1. Blog Consistently

    A challenge for me. One I´m ready to accept because it´ll only benefit me in the long run. 2017 blogging is over. Gone. 2018 will be about being punctual, informative and fun, regularly.

  1. Read More Out Of My Genre Comfort-Zone

    For years I avoided genre´s such as Sci-Fi and Dystopian. On a few occasions I´d read a Fantasy or Paranormal but that was about it. I stuck to Romance novels because it´s what I enjoyed most. But Romance get´s boring after a while. Every character is broken-hearted at some point and most have their happily ever after ( after 1 or 3 books). Besides- I´m seeing so many fab cover features on Instagram… It´s time to expand my horizon. It´s time to find something non-romance. Or something otherworldly that involves romance. ( I don´t think I´m ready to kick romance completely.)

  1. Use My Kindle More Often

    I´ve mentioned many times before in my other posts that I´m a paperback lover through and through. Nothing beats a good old book. Nothing! I remember when the Kindle Paperwhite went on sale I was hell-bent on getting one. An e-book reader like the Paperwhite with all it´s pro´s and hardly any con´s? That thing had my name on it! Fast forward a few years later: I hardly have any books on my Kindle. I just can´t warm up to the e-book reader. Sure, it comes in handy when I travel but when I´m out of the country I hardly spend time reading. I´m out and about, exploring new places. No. 2018 will be my „Morgana´s going to buy more ebooks“ year. What a waste to pay loads of money for something that only collects dust, right?

  1. Read More Books

    Another challenge. Life is busy. I have 2 kids and a husband who often need my full attention. Plus work and appointments and whatever else I usually deal with. Although I make time for reading it´s not really enough. I used to read more, even with kids. When did life become so busy? No more, I say! This busy life needs to slow down.

So, there you have it. My outrageous, fantabulous, extraordinary list of 2018 New Years Resolutions. If you have any ideas for me to add to my list then feel free to comment them! Or just let me know what your bookish-resolutions are, if you have any at all. I would love to find out what your 2018 will look like.

Here´s to a successful book year!

Much Love,

Morgana xxx

    1. LOL. The books are never a waste- It´s the Kindle I´m worried about. Cost over 100 smackers and it can do nothing but download books. But I might add a Book Mantra to my Resolution list. *wink*. Can´t hurt to repeat that every night. THanks for commenting, Muchacha <3<3
