Hello everyone! Welcome to the new year! This post is one of the ones that I have no idea if it will even take on with everyone else. It might not, it might. I have no idea. I just wanted to talk about my 2017 Blogging & Reading Goals ‘n’ Ambitions.
My blogging goals for 2017 is to make this blog more of my own, create my own style of things and how things go. I’d like to make my blog more artsy; I’d just have to figure out how to do that.. I also want to hopefully get more followers! I know that focusing on gaining followers shouldn’t be a main priority, buuuut, I want to share more things to different people! I love having this book blog. I love that I can just put my reviews, book hauls & monthly wrap ups online for the world; to whoever is tuning in that is. I enjoy all the feedback I get.
Hopefully I’ll create more of a presence online. I use Instagram (@adelabellabookworm) and tumblr (@sleepy-bookworm) a lot, but I’d like to use my WordPress more as well. I’d like to find more bookish blogs as well, and make more friends! If you don’t have me on Goodreads yet, add me!
I want to read more of the books I own. I’ll still use my libraries; I can’t ignore my need for books! I’d like to focus more on the books I already own though, and maybe even downsize my personal library I have here at home. I don’t have a lot of wall space for more shelves, so cutting back on the book buying (at least physical books) would be a great plus for me as well!
I’m going to try my best to use my Kobo more frequently. As well as my iBooks. I’ve been wanting to do a review on my Kobo for a while now, but I just can’t seem to remember to do so! Plus, I’m not even sure if I should now, since the model I have is out of date, haha.
I want to take no shit book-wise. Meaning that if I’m not getting on with a book, I can put it down without feeling guilty about doing so. I’ve had trouble with this before, where a book has made me so incredibly angry that I finished the book just out of spite.
I’m going to try and read 50 books, that’s at least one book a week. I know that I surpassed last years goal (50) books majorly. With that said, I want to also re-read 6 books! This year I tried re-reading 12 books and let me tell you, that did not work out so well for me. So I thought, while 12 is nice, it’s just not personally doable for me. Hence the 6 books! I want to try and for sure re-read A Court of Thorns and Roses as well as A Court of Mist and Fury (both by Sarah J. Maas). The other 4 books…I have no idea. I guess I’ll see when I get around to it!
These are all of the Blogging & Reading goals I could think of at the moment. Do you have any reading and/or blogging goals for 2017? I’d love to know!

I’m sure you’ll do great on your goals! My goals are mostly to get my blog running the way I want to to read 100 books.
Oh thank you! I’m sure you’ll do great on your goals as well! 🙂
These are some great goals, Adele! I’m sure you’ll be able to accomplish them in some shape or form.
I particularly liked your “take no shit-book wise” goal. It’s incredibly liberating to know it’s okay to set a book aside (and actually do it). It’s crazy knowing how trapped I felt believing I needed to finish every single book I started and it concerns me a little when I see others feeling the same way. It’s like food, if you don’t like it or it gives you a stomachache stop eating it!
Here’s to a great 2017!
