Hi everyone! Today I’ll be sharing my 2022 reading goals! I did pretty good with my 2021 reading goals, having finished 3 out of 5 goals but I would really like to get all 5 goals completed this year! What are some of your reading goals this year?
I love reading series, but I’ve been starting more series than I’ve been finishing lately. Almost by default, being a book blogger and reviewer means that you tend to read and review mostly new releases, which includes starting new series. I want to change that a little bit and try to finish at least 5 series that I’ve either started already, or want to start! This means I probably won’t be finishing any 14 book series, but maybe a few trilogies and a few duologies as well.
I’ve tried to make this goal work for me almost every year, but I always say I want to read the full list (which with me is nearly impossible). This year, I decided to combine the two lists of books that I want to read and say that I want to read a total of 20 books off either list! Hopefully this combined with the fact that most of my 2022 releases are books I have ARCs for will make it an easier goal for me to complete. I blame my mood reading for why I’ve never been able to complete this one.
I love reading long books, and I noticed in 2021 I was reading more of them than usual. So, I want to read at least one book a month that’s over 500 pages, or an average of 12 for the year (if I end up reading more than one in a month). I’m thinking this one won’t be too difficult to accomplish!
I did a split goal in 2021 for books or pages read and I really liked doing it that way, because even if I don’t reach the book goal I can still reach the page goal, especially if I’m reading more 500+ page books like in goal #3! I did increase the page goal this year, so hopefully it’s still something I can get done!
I have a really bad habit of buying more books than I can read, especially physical books. They do say that reading books and buying books are two different hobbies, and I definitely think that’s true! However, I would definitely like to start reducing my physical TBR this year. In 2021 I read a ton of e-books, and while that’s great, it doesn’t help me with reading and passing on physical books. I have a bunch of books that I would like to donate but I want to read first, so this should help with that goal!
What are your goals for 2021? Do we have any in common? I’d love to chat!
