I mostly enjoyed my reading last year, but I would like to be more focused in 2019. In particular, I’d like to read:
More poetry books
I read plenty of poems online, but I didn’t commit to any collections by specific poets and there are so many that I want to explore in more depth.
More short stories
I love short stories and have no idea why I neglected this form in 2018
More literary fiction/realism
I haven’t been friends with ‘lit fic’ for a while, but I would like to get back into it because I’m sure I’m missing out on some good stuff.
I’ve also decided to get a bit more organised about actually reading the books I already own. I’ve made a TBR list which currently stands at 82 books! I’ll be happy if I can get through half of that this year.
I am going to introduce a 50 page limit at which to ditch a book if it isn’t doing anything for me (or just after a couple of eye-rolls as Widdershins suggests)
I intend to continue reading as much SFF and crime fiction as ever!
