Hey guys! Today I am bringing you my 2020 reading/blogging resolutions and have chosen five goals that I want to achieve by the end of the year. I hope you enjoy!
1) Read 80 books
Since I read 71 books in 2018 and 101 in 2019, I feel pretty confident about setting a much higher challenge for myself this year. Normally I start off small, like 40 books or so, but I’m going straight for 80 and who knows, I might end up hitting 100 again!
2) Purchase less than 50 books
So last year I tried setting myself a goal of buying one book for every three I read and while I did stick to that for the first half of the year, I lost interest for the second half and stopped keeping track. So this year I decided to try setting myself a goal of purchasing less than 50 books which I think it’s much more achievable and easy to keep track of. I keep forgetting what books I’ve purchased when I write about my hauls so hopefully with this I can easily keep track.
3) Tackle my TBR
So I did a quick sweep of my shelves and I have around 80 unread books. I don’t think that’s bad but I’ve been stuck that number for a couple years now and it never seems to lessen. Hopefully with the aforementioned goal I can focus more on the books I already own. Also it might help me tackle my most anticipated books!
4) Finish series I’m in the middle of
I don’t think I’ve set this goal for myself before but from just having a quick scan of my shelves, I noticed I have a lot of unfinished series and I really want to tackle these in 2020. Ones like Nevernight, Spellslinger and Falling Kingdoms which I was really excited about but then stopped reading for some reason. I desperately want to finish Falling Kingdoms!
5) Stick to a consistent posting schedule
And, finally, sticking to a consistent posting schedule because I failed massively at this last year. It’s obvious I struggled judging working full time and blogging in my free time so I really want to try and figure out what works best for me. I want to post at least twice a week and possibly give myself a break when I’m on holiday because I think when I take a break from work, I should also take a break from my blog.
I’m pretty happy with these goals; hopefully I can stick to at least a few of them. What are some of your reading resolutions? I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!
