My Bookish Resolutions of 2019

 

This is my fifth list in the #Project14lists, a blogging project initiated by the lovely Shealea. She is also hosting a great giveaway. If you haven’t checked it out already, find all the details here.

Today I will list out all my bookish resolutions that I have decided to follow for the year of 2019.

But before I talk about the upcoming year, let’s review the current year. I had zero book-related resolutions this year. I read very few books this year too as a result of being in a reading slump for most of the months and the end result was a large quantity of partly-read or DNFed books. Not a good reading year, to say the least. But I am currently reading “Every Heart A Doorway” and I feel that is bringing me out of my slump. Here’s hoping for the best.

So, I have decided that I will have an extensive reading schedule in the next year and will keep track of my reading, by noting down the no. of pages I will read, a list of TBR for each month, etc. Quite an ambitious endeavour, but one has to start somewhere.

Let’s get on with the resolutions, then.

1. To read more Classics

I have decided to read more classics such as Pride and Prejudice, Anna Karenina and more in the next year.

 

2. To read Six of Crows Duology

I read the book “Shadow and Bone” by Leigh Bardugo a few years ago but didn’t like it much. So, I wasn’t sure whether to pick up her book “Six of Crows”. But I have heard so many good things about the Duology, which consists of the first book “Six of Crows” and the sequel “Crooked Kingdom”, that I have decided to pick it up in the next year.

3. To read more Indian authors

I haven’t read many books written by Indian authors. I am hoping to do that in the next year.

4. To keep track of my reading

I will keep track of my reading next year by planning my TBR every month, noting down the no. of pages I read every day, making sure to read at least a couple of pages every day, etc..

5. To read more Shakespeare

I am hoping to read Romeo and Juliet and some other plays of Shakespeare.

Well, this is my list of bookish resolutions for 2019 for the moment. I am planning to add more as the year goes by depending on my progress. What are your bookish resolutions for 2019? Let me know in the comments below!
