Hey Friends! Happy Sunday and happy February! Wow, I can’t believe that it is already February! I keep seeing everyone talk about how January felt like 83 days/years, etc. but to me, it really flew by. It’s crazy. Anywho, I have been talking about posting my 2020 reading goals and today is finally the day! I wanted to post this earlier but better late than never, right?! Let’s get into what I’ve got planned for my reading for this year.
– Read at least one classic every month
Look, me and classics just don’t mesh well but I have decided to read at least one every month for this year. I feel like everyone, but me, has a classic that they love.Also, I mean, they’re classics for a reason right? I should be able to find at least one that I like. Hopefully, I will find one that I love and I can/will recommend to everyone.
– Read 50 books off of my own shelf
The books that I own far exceeds the actual number of them that I have read. So, this year I plan to read at least 50 books that I own and stop letting the library distract me 😂
– Read more sapphic relationships
I actually have several sapphic books on my TBR but I didn’t get to them last year like I’d hoped. So, this year I plan on reading more of those. Also, I feel like m/m relationships get way more attention and praise than f/f. I’m not entirely sure why that is, more than likely, multiple reasons but I want to give my attention to more sapphic relationships this year.
– Diversify my reading
So, if you saw my 2019 reading stats post, then you will have seen that I had zero percent books read under the categories of chronic illness and disability rep. Which, may not be one hundred percent accurate because of the #ownvoices category on my spreadsheet, but I would like to read more of those representations in fiction.
– No more than one ARC request per month
So, last year I discovered NetGalley and I went absolutely ham on requests for ARCs. I still have books that I requested, almost a year ago, that I have not read or reviewed. 😐 Also, as I said earlier, I would like to read more of the books that I actually own. In conclusion, I need to chill on the ARC requests.
Well, those are my reading goals for this year. I feel like that is a pretty reasonable list. What are your reading goals for the year? Also, if you have any recommendations for your favorite book that fits into any of my goals, please let me know!
