It still feels weird to be talking about 2020…
I have a TON of goals for 2020. Life was absolutely crazy this past year and I feel like a lot of things have slipped through the cracks. So my focus for 2020 is to find a way to stay on schedule/track with deadlines – both in my personal & bookish life – and hopefully find some semblance of balance!
Blog/Social Media Goals
1. Reach 2k on my Bookstagram
2. Reach 500 subscribers here ♥
3. Post at least 5 times a week – both on my blog and Bookstagram!
I’ve really struggled with consistency this year so I’m hoping to up my game in 2020. This gives me plenty of wiggle room for missed posts, but still keeps me accountable so I don’t disappear for weeks like I’m prone to do.
1. Read 100 books
This should be easily achievable again in 2020, I hit this in early November this year. I want to keep it at something I know I can achieve so I don’t feel too much pressure. Reading is fun for me and I don’t want that too change.
2. Read (at least) 1 BOTM book per month
I need to catch up!! I have 16 unread BOTM picks from 2019 alone…
3. Backlist TBR
I created a list of 24 backlist titles to read in 2020, and every month I will pick 2 to read! A lot of these are 2019 releases I wasn’t able to get to.
4. Read outside my comfort zone
In 2020 I’m going to challenge myself to read 1 book every month that is outside my comfort zone. Whether than be historical, paranormal, magical realism, etc. I have a list in mind but it may change throughout the year.
I had every intention of participating in 2019 but it didn’t happen. This year I printed out the amazing cards they had and I’m going to draw 3 every month and try to complete the challenges. Hopefully I actually follow through this year!
1. ARC Schedule
I have created, and am holding myself to, a reading schedule to catch up on my arcs. If everything goes according to plan, I should be caught up around April and can then focus on keeping up with upcoming releases rather than late ARCs. Pray for me.
2. Review every book I read in 2020
I will review every single book I read in 2020! No more lingering RTC posts… even if it’s a super short, few lined review, it’s happening.
3. Hit 80% on Netgalley!
I’ve been sitting around 50% all year I need to fix that. Hopefully my ARC schedule will help.
4. Be more consciences about ARC requests
Okay no more hitting request/download on every interesting book available on Netgalley/Edelweiss+….
What are some of your goals for 2020? Do we have any in common??
