This post is going up a little later than planned but I still wanted to post my goals for the year to hold myself accountable!
Goodreads Goal: 70 Books
I’m going to slowly try and get to 100 books in the future. Now that I’m done with uni I should be able to read more. I managed to read 52 books last year despite being in my final year of university for half the year. University was definitely a big factor in my reading slumps. I’m very glad to be able to read whatever I want now, no more required reading!
Get back into series
I feel like I read a lot of standalones in 2021. I have so many series I want to read, continue and finish. I’ve been neglecting them! I used to be a series binger, I miss those days. I plan to reread some series and hopefully, binge them!
Read more classics
2021 I read quite a few classics and it made me remember just how much I enjoy a good classic. In 2022, I want to read more. I want to read the two remaining Austen novels on my TBR, finally read Dorian Gray, and read some foreign classics!
Read from my physical TBR
I have so many unread books. I said the same thing last year but uh… that didn’t go quite to plan. I will be making a real effort to reduce my physical TBR this year. I need to stop hoarding so many books. I want to buy books I’m excited for and read them right away! I just bought a TBR trolley and taking all the unread books from my shelf has kind of shamed me into reading them. My bookshelves are looking happy.
The goals that get recycled every year:
This is just a general rule for my reading. I managed to get my reading to 25% authors of colour and 15% LGBT. I want to increase this and also add in some disability/mental health rep – which is lacking.
This one is especially important as I managed to read a grand total of 0 non-fiction books in 2021 (hahaha)
