2020 Reading Goals

Hello! Hello! Hello!

Can you even believe it’s 2020! That’s absolutely mental. I remember being a kid in the 80s and thinking that in the year 2020 we’d have flying cars and that we’d live like The Jetson’s. I was wayyyyyy off. Still waiting for my Back to the Future Hoverboard. Anywho, I wanted to share with you my 2020 reading goals. Let’s get to it:

Goodreads 2020 Reading Challenge:
I think I am going to stick with the same amount of books as I had in 2019 since it worked out well and I hit my reading goal in November. I’m leaving it at 50 books I can always change it during the course of the year.

Yearly Reading Challenges:
LAst year I attempted doing a couple of yearly challenges and I wounded up forgetting about them. So for 2020 I’m skipping most of these. The only one I will partake in one is the TBR and Beyond on in the Facebook group. It’s a pretty cozy easy one so I think that will work better.

Finish Series:
One of my 2019 goasl was to finish a couple series and… I failed miserably. So I am bring it back in 2020.

I want to finish:

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
And I Darken by Kiersten White
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.
If I can get to others than that is brilliant but I have to finish these three.

In 2020 I really need to get as many backlist books read as new ones. So my goal is for every new release I read I want to read a book that has been on my TBR for over a year.


Let’s Chat.

What about you? What are some of your 2020 reading goals? Leave me a comment.

    1. I tried to do 3 last year and ended up just forgetting about them. I’d rather do monthly ones I think that works out better for me. If publishers could stop releasing such interesting books I think we could all read our backlist lol.

  1. My goal is to finish some series as well. I want to stop buying so many books, and try to finish ones I already have. I love buying books, but if I want to go to Paris with my sister in July, I have to chill with the book buying.

    I read books and then see if they fit challenges. I will try the TBR yearly and monthly challenges, the Popsugar challenge, the Little Inklings challenges, and the monthly challenges in my Kingdom of Readalot group. There is a lot of overlap, so it isn’t as hard as it might sound.
    I also want to write more book reviews, and get my Bookstagram finally going.

    1. That is a colossal challenge lol I too want to start buying and try to read what I already have. I’m not sure how that will work out for me. A trip to Paris, that is exciting. It’s a gorgeous city you will enjoy it.


  2. Those are really good goals. My 2020 goals for reading is finished some of the series I have and try to read old books off too. I also want to work on blog and spend more time developing it and be better at posting on it more often.

    1. It’s so easy to get distracted by all the new pretties coming out each year and forget about the ones we already have waiting at home. I am ahead now on blog planning and hoping I can keep it up for the rest of the year. Good luck with your goals JoAnne


    1. I agree that is a hard thing to do. My time for reading is mostly in my car on my way to work I listen to audiobooks. But I want to try and schedule more time for it in my week.


  3. Fantastic goals!
    I’m trying to focus on goals that will improve the quality of my reading! One of my biggest goals is to learn how to browse for books again. I am going to the library next week to pick up a handful of holds and to see what I can find.

    1. I get distracted with all the pretty books. I just buy loads without really looking if they interest me or not. That is a good goal to have to make sure you are interested in the book and find stuff you are going to love.


  4. Some of my goals: I don’t need to review every book. I might not have enough to say! I’m going to grad school for my MLIS starting this month, so I know my time is going to be really limited now, and so I want to make sure I’m enjoying what I read, so DNF anything that is making me unhappy, even if people tell me it’s the best thing ever. Also, remember my tastes are not going to match everyone else’s/my friends. In other words, I have a lot of goals! But mostly related to making my life happier!


    1. Good luck with grad school. I think it’s easy to forget that ready is a hobby and it should be done because we enjoy it. DNFing is a learning process. I used to not be able to do it. But in the last year i started to do it more and more to books that just weren’t doing it for me. It makes no sens in pushing something you are not liking.


  5. Good luck with all of your goals. I have some series I need to finish, but for the most part, it’s series that I still need to actually START. hah I loved the Lunar Chronicles though, so I highly recommend those. I want to read more backlist books/books that I already own too.
