Happy 2021! I have some updated goals for this year to share! I’m going to kind of keep these a little relaxed because I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself and as 2020 showed us, you never know what is going to happen. I just want these to guide me, not confine me.
1. Read 100 books.
I have done this consistently 3 years in a row, so I don’t think it’ll be a problem. This is not a huge deal to me, but there are a ton of books I want to read, so I do think I’ll get there naturally.
2. Review books soon after finishing them.
I need to get better about reviewing books within a few days of finishing them. Books I have neutral feelings about slip out of my mind after that long, so it makes it very difficult to review them! Also, hopefully doing this will mean that I don’t have to scramble to meet my posting schedule.
3. Read series quickly.
If I start (and enjoy) a series that is already finished or has more books out, I am begging myself to quickly read them. It doesn’t have to be back to back, but I’m tired of drawing out series for months or years.
4. Contemplate books before blindly buying them.
There are too many books that I get that I end up not even really knowing what they are about. I just want to look into them a bit more. Sometimes it is fun to pick a book with only a little information, but when half of my TBR is that way, it can end up feeling like a waste of time.
That’s it! Basically I just want to read good books. What goals do you have this year?
