18 Books I Want to Read in 2018

I have a few goals for 2018, which I’m going to talk through first, before getting into the specific books I want to read. There are many more that could be added to this list, but I had to narrow it down to some. I have even more at uni that I haven’t let myself consider including as I’d never get this post written if I did.

  1. I want to read 50 books. Ideally, I’d love to read 100, but I have to be realistic. In 2017 I finished 81, and I read some pretty hefty books through that year… so 82 would be nice…
  2. Read more 19th Century literature. 19th Century literature is definitely a passion of mine, and I just want to read it all.
  3. Read more variety. I started in 2017 by reading more graphic novels, more plays etc. I want to continue this, as I’ve really enjoyed reading different forms.
  4. Read more philosophy. One of my potential paths I want to follow in academia is 19th Century literature, and it is heavily influenced by philosophy. So I want to read the work of those philosophers who were read widely at that time, to help me enjoy and understand the novels better.
