New Years is famous for inspiring people with a fresh start. You know the saying–“new year, new me.” People invest in gym memberships, pledge to eat better, decide they will clean the house each day. This time of year is full of wrapping up “mistakes” and giving yourself a fresh, new start. For me, it’s my goodreads
I’ll admit it–I’m terrible at using Goodreads. I love the concept, don’t get me wrong. I have spent many hours on the website, clicking book after book trying to find something to read. Over time, though, my TBR shelf got a little out of control. I was getting too click-happy when it came to that “want-to-read” button. I stopped using the feature because my shelf was full of books I had no interest in reading anymore. In honor of the new year, I performed the daunting task and deleted many books.
My taste in YA books have gradually changed and my tbr shelf no longer reflected that. It was interesting to see what old me wanted to read. Some of the books I deleted I had completely lost interest in. Others I think I would somewhat enjoy now, but I rather prioritize things I know I have a chance of loving. I even got a chance to go through and “order” them based off priority. Here are the top five books on my TBR:
So here’s my new years resolution–I want to start using goodreads properly! I want to get in the habit of logging my books when I read them so at the end of the year I am not stuck counting on my fingers. I want my TBR shelf to be an accurate representation of what I want to read.
