2014 Reading Resolution

Well okay.. It's already February, the second month of the year 2014 and it's a little bit late to write my 2014 Reading Resolution. But it's fun, so I'm just gonna do it anyway.

So, last year was a disaster. I was stuck in a reading slump and didn't even try to get back on reading.
But not this time! 2014's been good so far and I've been loving it so far. I bought lots of books (book haul is coming right after this one), I read in total 6 books in the month of January; which is a huge amount considering my reading slump last year.

I want to enjoy 2014 with lots of books and experiencing literature even deeper. So, here's my reading resolution this year.

1. From Young Adult to Adult.
I've been reading a lot of Young Adult Fiction; dystopian, some contemporary and fantasy. The thing about YA Fiction, everything is practically the same. Same concept, different author and different characters. Sometimes even the plot is similar. That's why I'm going to read more Adult Fiction this year. I've read few: Dan Brown's novels and J.K Rowling's The Casual Vacancy, but I crave for some more.

2.  More classic and 80's / 90's books.
Back when I wasn't even existed, there were lots of brilliant author publishing their masterpieces. And I have the urgency to read all of them. I know my english skill isn't that good, that's why I want to challenge myself with reading classic and books that published before 2000's. Some classic that I've been planning to read: The Great Gatsby, Lord of The Flies, To Kill A Mocking Bird and The Giver. Also I'll be trying to read A Game of Thrones. 

3. Completing series instead of starting a new ones.
I have this bad habbit. I buy the first book in the series and buy the following books of the series on the next year.. Sometimes not at all, which left me hanging with so much unfinished series. So far, I've finished few series: Harry Potter, The Infernal Devices, The Hunger Games and soon The Mortal Instruments and Legend Trilogy. This year I'm planning to finish The Percy Jackson series, Heroes of Olympus, Caster series, Eon duology and hopefully series by Patrick Ness and Scott Westerfeld.

4. Read 4 books a month and complete my Goodreads challenge.
There are 4 weeks in a month, which mean each week I have to finish at least one book. Why? Well, because I want - wait, no - HAVE to complete my Goodreads challenge this year, which is to read in total 40 books. And 18% done and 3 books ahead. This is a good sign, isn't it?

5. Read more Non-Fiction books.
Self-enrichment and motivational books would be great or maybe I'll just but Wreck-This-Journal by Kerri Smith.

6. Complete my Harry Potter collection.
I have complete series of Harry Potter but it's in Bahasa. So this means I'm going to replace all my Harry Potter books with the new ones! There are like million different covers of the series but I've decided to collect the ones that Periplus selling... The adult version from Bloomsburry which were published during Harry Potter's anniversary.

The covers and the spines are gorgeous! Can't wait to get my hands all over these books!

... And that's a wrap! These are all my reading resolution this year. Hopefully, by the end of the year I could accomplish all of them.

What's your resolution this year?
