New Years Resolutions Book Tag | What Will I Read in 2018?

My friend Jenn did this tag on her blog and tagged me, so thank you Jenn! I didn’t know what I wanted to post about today so this is perfect timing. I don’t know who created this tag, but if you do, let me know! Let’s talk about my 2018 reading plans (and yours :P)!


1. An Author You’d Like To Read That You’ve Never Read

There are a lot of authors I’ve never read but nobody really sticks out from the others. A few I’d like to read in 2018: Sebastian de Castell, Jen Wilde, Kristin Cashore, Susan Ee, Julie C. Dao.

2. A Book You’d Like To Read

Uhm, my entire TBR, is that an option? Some examples:

(sidenote: I had no idea this thumbnail grid option actually looked good if you increased the size of the picture. I’m definitely using this more often! I can’t believe this took me over 1.5 years to figure out)

3. A Classic You’d Like To Read

I currently don’t really have any classics on my tbr except To Kill A Mockingbird (which I guess should be considered a classic?). So that’s the one I guess? I’m not even sure I will read it this year or at all but I own it so I probably should give it a shot!

4. A Book You’d Like To Re-Read

Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. Whenever I see a reference, fanart, quotes, anything about this duology I want to pick it back up and read it all over. EVERY TIME. (the worst thing is, I’ve been working on SoC art myself so I’m basically torturing myself)

5. A Book You’ve Had For Ages and Want To Read

I feel like I’ve owned The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski for ages and despite the fact that I’ve been told to read it many many times, I’ve yet to pick it up. But 2018 will be the year I read it.


6. A Big Book You’d Like To Read

I was looking through my goodreads shelf and oh my Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff is over 600 pages (608 to be exact). This will kill me. Another big book I want to read it Furyborn by Claire Legrand (512pg) of which I have an eARC!

7. An Author You’ve Previously Read and Would Like To Read More Of

Shaun David Hutchinson, V.E. Schwab (I NEED IT ALL), Marie Lu and many more.

8. A Book You Got For Christmas and Would Like To Read

I got for Christmas 4 books and I’m currently reading one, but I really want to challenge myself to read more non-fiction (specifically, pop-science) so I’m going to read Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner. (In case you weren’t aware yet, I’m a geek)

9. A Series You Want To Read From Start to Finish

Depending on how much I love the first book: The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski, Penryn & the End of Days by Susan Ee, The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken.

10. A Series You Want To Finish That You’ve Already Started

I believe Record of A Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers comes out this summer so then I can read the second and third book in this series of standalones! I’ve read The Long Way to A Small Angry Planet a few months ago and really liked it!

11. Do You Set Reading Goals? If So, How Many Books Do You Want To Read in 2018?

I’ve set my reading goal much lower than last year. Last year it was set at 100 and I read 125, this year I want to read 75 books. Because I’ll be starting my master’s and don’t want to pressure myself when it comes to reading, I’ve lowered my goal.

12. Any Other Reading Goals?

Yes! I want to read more pop-science, I want to try and read 1 non-fiction book per month from January to August. It’s already failing a little because I’m only at page 9, I think, of the first. oops.


Which books are on your must-read pile of 2018? What are your reading goals this year? Which authors do you suggest I read this year?

    1. Big books are so intimidating! 600 pages is basically two entire books (plus Obsidio has high chances of messing with my head and heart and 600 pages of that will probably destroy me)

      1. oh man. lol i really enjoy shorter books because i feel accomplished finishing them so quickly; but long books can be so worth it!

  1. Aahh, I’m going to start reading To Kill a Mockingbird for school really soon, so I’m hoping it’ll be as good as everyone says??? And UGH I reread SoC & CK at the end of 2017, and I love it so so much. I think I’ll have to reread it every year ahaha. Omg I’m SO. EXCITED. for Obsidio!!! And hahha I got Furyborn arrived in the mail for me yesterday and I was shocked by how long it was. 😂

    1. I hope you’ll like it!! SoC and CK should definitely be reread every year if you ask me. I read them in the summer for the first time, I think, and I just need to reread already.

  2. Loads of great books in there Lia! I’ve got Vicious to read as well, V.E is the queen. I love to Kill a Mockingbird, it’s quite hard going and a bit slow but a beautiful book if you can see it through. Good luck with your ambitious reading!

  3. My main reading goal this year is to re-read more! I love getting excited by new releases but there’s just something so special about re-reading favourites! Also, I’m with you on Leah on the Offbeat–that looks so fantastic!

    1. I’m sure it will definitely live up to the hype for you. I’ve never met a single person who has read V.E. Schwab books and didn’t like them haha
      Thank you


  4. I hope you will read The Winner’s Curse! I have read the first two books in the series and, if I enjoyed them, I wasn’t as blown away as everyone else? :/ It makes me a little sad ahah. I hope you’ll enjoy it 🙂


    1. Yes, sure go ahead! I’d love to see your answers!
      I can’t wait for the redesign of Vicious to come out so I can finally know what everyone’s been flailing about!

    1. Yes! I will! I’m really excited to just start fresh with something. It’s officially the final month of my bachelor and I’m so done with this ugh
      It is really good! Though I’m not really sure it’s YA, the characters are all older than 18 I think, so it’s probably more NA??
