READING GOALS (2017) | Rereading in 2017


As the year draws closer to an end, I've started thinking about my goals for the new year, including the way I'm approaching reading in 2017. I've already shared about my shift in mind set that will largely play a part in my reading and book buying, and today I'm sharing about my plans to reread a book a month in 2017.

In terms of bookish goals, 2016 was very much about making a dent in my unread shelf, and tackling my ever expanding book collection. Due to this, I didn't really get to do much of one my favourite bookish things - reread. Don't get me wrong, I did reread a good amount, just not as much as I'd have liked to. I thought about picking up certain books from my shelves, but ultimately didn't delve into them as I wanted to continue checking books off my unread shelf.

Whilst taking a more minimalist approach to reading, book buying, and pretty much all things bookish in the new year, it seems like the perfect time to pick up those books I didn't get round to rereading.

I plan to reread one book from my shelves every month in 2017.

  1. Oh, fun! I did better than I normally do with rereading this year, but still not a main part of my reading.

    1. Rereading is such fun - finding the balance between rereading and new books can be tough. I reread Dahl, Susan Hill, and currently Harry Potter, but not a lot besides that... To some that's probably a good deal of rereading. Haha!

  2. Good luck with this! I used to reread often before I started blogging. Now that I own a zillion unread books, I don’t have as much time for it.

    1. Thanks! It can be hard fitting in rereads with a long list of other books you want to get round to!

  3. I love this. I love to reread, too, and this is a really great list. You should consider doing readalongs for them if you like to do that kind of thing.

    1. Thanks! I hadn't thought on readalongs, but I'm definitely keeping that in mind!

  4. This is such a good idea, and I wish I could commit to something like that. I always say I want to reread my favorite books, and I never make time for it!

    1. It can be hard finding a balance between new titles and rereads - if I can't commit to rereading a favourite book, then picking up a new book by the same author is a good substitute. I know you read a lot of your favourite authors regularly, so you already do that really!

  5. Planning a year out is commendable! I'm not sure if a schedule like this would help me or not. But I think it's a great idea to keep you on track :) And I think rereading all of Harry Potter was quite a bit of rereading for one year!

    1. Planning the year out is easy... Sticking to it is another story :-P

      Haha! I haven't quite finished my reread of Harry Potter just yet. I started book number 6 today, with fingers crossed I'll be finished with 6 + 7 by time the new year rolls round.

  6. I love I Capture the Castle. :) Good choice for a reread. I am a big fan of rereading too - I don't understand when people don't. :)

  7. I do not reread but I can see The Secret Garden and Rebecca being worth it. Rebecca is an all time favourite. I tried with Traverlers Wife and had to DNF it. Enjoy

    1. Oh, really? The Time Traveler's Wife is one of my favourite books... But I can see how it doesn't work for others. It took a reread for me to actually fully appreciate the story and take it all in. Rebecca is also an all time favourite of mine.

      I understand rereading isn't for everyone, but I couldn't imagine being a reader and not rereading. I have a terrible memory though, so that probably plays into my love of rereading!

  8. I enjoyed so much The Secret Garden and Rebecca, good luck!. Emma
