The new year has started and for all book bloggers, it is time to set reading goals for the year…. FUCK THAT!
Reading is supposed to be an escape, a way to get through it all. Why waste my escape on trying to impress people with my reading list?!?!
I’m almost 30 years old, I make my own money, and I have my own opinions. Why should I care what people think of what I’m reading? I want to read what I WANT! Screw those other people telling me I need to read books because of certain content, or they’re books everyone should read.
I’m not everyone. I’m me. I like magical worlds and smut…. LEAVE ME ALONE IN MY HOUSE OF MAGIC AND SIN! So here are my reading rules of the year!
- DNF More
I’ve always been afraid to give up on a book, but ain’t nobody got time for that! I’m definitely going to be using the DNF button a lot more this year, even when they are ARCs. I’m so grateful to read these amazing authors, but I also have to learn how to be more honest and say no.
I think if I DNF more books, it will make me happier and more open to read more books.
- Don’t Write Reviews for Every Book
Soooooo this was another thing I really struggled with last year. I would finish a book and then absolutely dread writing a review, especially for a book that I had nothing really to say. I remember complaining about this on bookstagram and many people said that they actually didn’t write a review for every single book…. Genius!
I don’t want to ruin a reading experience if I’m dreading writing a review. I’m not going to post as many this year so I don’t drive myself completely insane!
If I keep these two rules in mind, I will be able to be a much happier and crazy reader.
