We have 22 days left of 2016 and that is just so crazy! 2016 definitely had its ups and downs but it just made me more excited for 2017. Anyways, I have some reading and writing goals for the coming year and here they are!
I did very well with reading this year, and manage to achieve my goal of over 50 books a few months ago, but obviously I am still reading and adding to that number! For 2017 though, I want to push myself a little more and aim to read 75 books. I think I can do it, but I am definitely going to have to pick up the pace. Even though I am extremely busy right now, and I know for a fact that that will not slow down anytime soon, I do think despite that all, I will always make enough time to read! Apart from my reading goal, there are so many new books coming out next year that I am just ecstatic for, and here are some of them:
Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han (The 3rd book in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy)
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare (The 2nd book in the Dark Artifices trilogy)
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas (The 3rd book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy)
I had a decent writing year, but it was a little slow towards the end. This new year, I want to sit down and try and complete a novel. I have an idea that I am exploring at the moment, and I am really hoping I do not loose interest because I really do love this idea. Anyways, I am determined to give it my best effort to complete that. I also would like to write more short stories and enter more writing competitions. This year I did that, but I didn’t give the stories I wrote my full effort and I was kind of lazy when writing them and I do not want to send something in this new year unless I am very proud of it! I also would like to meet more writers my age. This year, I was able to attend a writer’s conference and it was an amazing experience that I am looking forward to experience again in hopefully the near future. Overall, I just really want to get more serious with my writing and do my best.
Those are my reading and writing goals for 2017 and I hope you enjoyed!

I’ve finished my first draft of a novel and hope to get it revised and to an agent next year. Oddly enough, the title is “Always and Forever” and my plan is for it to be one of a series. 🙂
That is great! I wish you the best with it
