My 2017 Reading Goals



Last week I shared my 2016 Reading Recap, so now I'm ready to share my reading goals for 2017. Rather than focus on reading a specific number of books, I have certain authors and series I want to read. Plus I also want to focus on reading the books I have at home sitting unread on my bookshelves!

Series and groups of books

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas (Along with A Court of Mist and Fury and then A Court of Wings and Ruin when it comes out this spring)

Throne of Glass series also by Sarah J. Maas. (This was very quickly bumped up much higher on my reading list, because I'm currently in the middle of the ACOTAR series I mentioned above, and it's so amazing. I hear this series is just as good.)

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (I think there are currently 8 published books in this series and each are about 900 pages long so......gulp!)

Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy by Laini Taylor (One of my friends has been begging me to read these books basically since I met her. I feel like since I'm on a series trend this year, it's a good time to finally get into this one too.)

Blogger Girl and Novelista Girl by Meredith Schorr (A cute duology about a book blogger!)

Veronica Mars - The Thousand Dollar Tan Line and Mr. Kiss and Tell (Rob and I binged this series in 2016, so I really want to see how the books pick up the story!)

One and Only by Lauren Sandler and Parenting an Only Child by Susan Newman (Since it's likely Seb will be an only child, I'm curious what other mamas have to share about their experiences raising only children.)


All of the unread books on my shelves by C, D, E, and F authors 

I have a terrible habit of picking up books and taking months years to actually read them. If for no other reason than to create space for new books, I really need to get a move on the unread stack of books in my house.

In one of my organizational sprees last year I sorted my books alphabetically, so I've picked out the unread books by authors with a last name that begins with C, D, E, and F and hope to read them in 2017.




Anything I haven't yet read by Sarah Addison Allen

The Girl Who Chased the Moon
Lost Lake
Waking Kate

Book Club, Blog Reviews, and other books I really want to check out this year

Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum
Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick
Goodnight from London by Jennifer Robson
The Self-Care Solution by Julie Burton
The Witches of New York by Ami McKay
A Certain Age by Beatriz Williams
A Rogue by Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean
I Found You by Lisa Jewell

Ready Player One

Rob and I started reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline together last year. We had this great idea to read a chapter together before bed every so often, and only got a very small way into the book before Netflix took over. I really want us to finish it this year!

Holiday reading

I didn't get to them this year, so I already have these three books for 2017 Nov/Dec holiday reading:
1. Christmas in Cowboy Country by Janet Dailey
2. Coming Home for Christmas by Julia Williams
3. Tree of Treasures by Bonnie Mackay




Overall, my list is about 65 books long, and I've started with the Sarah J. Maas books. What about you? Did you make any reading goals this year?
