2017 Reading Goals: Ich schaffe das!

Yes, I know I have already shared some of my reading plans for 2017, but I really wanted to make it more official, and to get everything together.

And yes, I am using a German expression, not just to show off but also because I really like it 😊

My Goodreads goal for this year is to read 52 books. This is a lot less than I read in 2016, since I read 96 books, but I wanted first to make it something accessible which wouldn’t be stressful, and also in case I have a reading slump, or don’t have time to read because of my work, or anything of the sort. Since there are 52 in a year, I thought it would be a very decent goal, and so far, I have already read 6 books, I don’t know what’s going on!

If you want to see more of my reading goals for this year, including reading more classics, and reading more diversely, you can watch the video below!

Top 10 Books I Want To Read In 2017

I already made one of those lists last year, and I read 7 out of the 10 books, which could have been worse.

Here is the list of books I really want to read in 2017, but of course, there are more books I would like to read!

The Goldfinch by Donna Tart (owned, already on the list last year)

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab (owned, I read the first book in the series last year, sequel coming soon)

The 100: Day 21 by Kass Morgan (already on the list last year)

King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard (sequel, coming soon)

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (already on the list last year)

City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare (sequel)

The Heir by Kiera Cass (sequel)

The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan (sequel, reread)

The Rest of us just live here by Patrick Ness

The Vegetarian by Han Kang

Hopefully I can get around all of those books this year, and more, it would make me really happy! What are your reading plans for 2017? Feel free to comment with those or some book recommendations as usual, and have a nice day!
