Claire: Plans for 2017


So what’s the plan for 2017?

This year I want to be as feminist as fuck.

The past has been a bit rough on me, 2014 was the year of graduating with my MSc and not flunking, 2015 to finding a damn job, 2016 to keeping the job. So what is 2017? It is the year to win. I won’t be lazy and I won’t do shit I don’t want to do anymore.

  1. Read my own goddamn books and TBR. Yes, you heard me say it, I’m imposing a book buying ban where I won’t spend my own money on books (this creates a bit of a loophole where I can spend other people’s money, like vouchers, but it won’t be my own money so I count it).
  2. Read whatever the hell I want, when I want to
  3. Listen to 5 audiobooks a year (I’ve gotten super into audiobooks in 2016 and want to keep it up).
  4. Try and read more nonfiction, especially feminist nonfiction (so if I have to give it a number I’ll give it 5, nonfiction, any kind of nonfiction)

I think this is doable, 4 goals, what say you?

What are your 2017 goals?

    I think being feminist as fuck is needed. I’ve got a bunch of goals I want to achieve this year but I’ve never thought about deliberately setting a theme for the year – I usually always sum up the years after they’ve gone by. Hmm. If I was to give 2017 a theme it would be to chase what I want. And I want a helluva lot.

    Good luck with your goals! I stopped accepting books for review two so years ago. Authors I’ve reviewed before who do their own communication will send me their new books and we both know I’ll get to it when I get to it, and that’s the only review requests I accept besides specific tours I seek out.
