Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme from Goodreads, created by Lainey from Gingerreadslainey and now moderated by Sam from ThoughtsOnTomes.

Hope y’all enjoyed the holidays and are starting the new year off the way you want to! New Years is a time to start fresh. Here are a few of my resolutions as they pertain to books and graphic novels!

5. Read more!!!

No brainer, right? I devour plenty of graphic novels for this blog, and because of my work schedule, they’ve come to make up the bulk of my reading. Hopefully I’ll have room for some more novels this year!

4. Spend less on books

Really I’m trying to spend less on everything, because I’m saving for my wedding. Believe it or not, books are the easiest things to cut from the budget because I work in libraries =P

3. Try some nonfiction

Let me tell you guys something about myself. I am a very, shall we say, safe person. I like routine. I do most things the same way every time. I stick with things I know I like. Example: I’ll order the same thing every time at a restaurant we frequent, whereas my fiancé will try something different every time.

I’m the same with my reading. I am a fantasy and comic book reader, and that’s about it. I don’t often go outside those boundaries. But this year I want to try to push myself to try a nonfiction novel in a subject I like outside my usual realms!

2. Expand fiction horizons

Please see above =P I have tried other genres before (romance, Christian, historical fiction) to mixed results. The one genre I think I absolutely cannot stand is mystery! Hopefully I find one this year that sticks.

1. Read more Marvel comics

Last, but not least, I should expand my horizons where it counts… read more Marvel comics! I’m a DC fan at my core but there are Marvel heroes I like. I’ll thank Nancy in advance for keeping me honest with this one 😉

Do any of you have bookish resolutions?
