Time to look forward and make plans for the new year. I’ve already started doing so for my personal life, so now I’d like to focus on my bookish life.
I anticipate being a bit busier this year, so my reading plans will be tailored to that expectation. My Goodreads reading goal will be something manageable for me, about 40-50 books (still deciding), and I won’t participate in as many year-long reading challenges as I did last year (so goodbye to Book Riot Read Harder Challenge and Library Love Challenge.) I will also try to ignore the temptation to participate in readathons that pop up throughout the year. I kept making TBRs for them in 2018 but failed miserably at them all. I don’t want to go through that again.
So no readathons, no Book Riot Read Harder Challenge, and no Library Love Challenge (though I’ll continue to visit my library). My top-most goals will be:
to spend less
to read more of my own books
to complete some series
But here are the other stuff I plan to do:
Goodreads reading goal
I keep increasing my annual reading goal by 5 books. I know I can hit this despite being busy because 40-50 books in a year seems to be my average. (But I have my fingers crossed that I’ll surprise myself by reading double this amount.)
