2020 Reading Goals Check-in!

One of my favorite things about yearly goals is being able to look back and see how I did! I think there is a fine line between taking goals to seriously and not seriously enough (and it’s different for everyone), but I think I did a pretty good job with it this year. Without further ado, here are the 2020 reading goals I set back in January!

1. Goodreads Goal – 100 books

I surpassed this! I reached 123 books this year! 100 is a reasonable goal for me, since I do read around that much every year.

2. Read More Nonfiction

I read 5 nonfiction books this year…which yes, is more than the 4 I read in 2019 that I set to top. I am currently reading a 6th, but I won’t finish it in time to count for 2020.

3. Reread Old Favorites

I reread 11 books this year! I was definitely better about it in the early months of the year, and (understandably) lost steam later on. I had wanted to reread previous books in series when a new book released, but I gave that up to save time.

4. Read Graphic Novels I Own Already

The two graphic novels/manga I wanted to get to were Fullmetal Alchemist and the Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra graphic novels.

I ended up reading Fullmetal Alchemist over the course of two weeks at work (one omnibus volume a day) back when the pandemic started and I had absolutely no work to do, but still had to be at work. I’m so glad I finally read these!

I read one of the A:TLA comics early in the year and just this week I realized that I never got back to them. I had 6 days left of the year and 5 comics to read, so I tried to read one per day. I have Turf Wars, the first Legend of Korra comic, to read still, but I can definitely get that done before the clock strikes midnight!

5. Make Regular Blog and Instagram Posts

I was doing very well with this initially this year, but the last several months have been a struggle. I’m giving myself a pass on this one.

6. Interact on Social Media More

Did I do this? It doesn’t feel like I did. I did try to comment more on other people’s posts, but I did want to stay caught with Instagram and reading blogs, but that also kind of slipped towards the end of the year.


Overall, I think I did pretty well, especially considering the year we’ve all had! I’ll be posting about my 2021 goals soon, but in the meantime, have a good New Years’ and good riddance to 2020!

Follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Goodreads, and Pinterest for more book updates and pictures!

  1. Love your goals Sarah!! Have to start my Bookstagram posting again, and hope that my mojo comes back soon. Also I love re-reading and did a lot this year, I actually re-read all my favorites this year, I was so bored at times with new books, that I prefered reading old favorites. I’m keeping my goal at 100 too for this year, same as last year. It’s a number that is feasible and doesn’t put too much pressure on me.
