2020 Bookish Resolutions

Hello! Right now, in Oregon, it’s really rainy, and so for me, it’s the perfect time the read and write, and curl up with a cup of tea and a book! However, right now, I present to you my (very very late) reading, writing and blogging goals for 2020:

Reading goals:

Number of books: My 2020 reading goal is to read 200 books. I don’t know how realistic this is, because I’ve never counted the books I read for an entire year before. However, I’m really excited to see how many books I end up reading. In June or so, if I haven’t reached 100 books, or if I’m not even close, I might change my goal to 180 books, but I hope that I’ll end up reading 200 books and reach my goal!

Genres: I want to read more fantasy novels, and mystery novels, because those are both genres that I enjoy reading that I almost never get to.

Writing goals:

Posts: I want to write 160 posts this year. Again, I’m not sure how realistic this goal is, but I think that it’s a good number to aim for!

My story: I also want to finish my first very rough draft of the book/story I’m writing. I’m hoping that it will be somewhere between 50 and 75 thousand words. I will also continue to post (hopefully) every two weeks another chapter!

Challenges: I want to try taking part in a writing challenge of some sort. If I do do one, it would probably be in the summer, when I don’t have to worry about managing that and school at the same time.

Consistent writing: I want to try to write a little everyday. Whether its journaling, or blogging, or writing a story, I am going to try to write a little every single day.

Journaling: I want to try to write in my journal 3 or 4 times a week (at least). I have a journal that I’ve been trying to write in everyday, but I know that every single day isn’t going to happen because I have so many other things I have to do, but I will try to write at least 3 times a week in my journal!

Blogging goals:

Posting schedule: I really want to consistently post 3 times a week, and that is what I will try to do.

Varied post topics: I want to also try to vary the posts that I write; discussion posts, top ten lists, reading updates, monthly tbr posts… (you get the point).

Recommendation posts: They seem really fun to do, and I enjoy reading them, so I want to try doing some!

Other goals:

Blog hopping: I want to discover lots of new blogs in 2020!

ARCs: (advanced reader’s copy) I don’t yet know exactly how ARCs work, but I really want to figure that out, and get ARCs from publishers in exchange for an honest review, as I’ve seen on so many other blogs!

Music: This isn’t really a book-related topic, but I play piano and trumpet, and I want to make more time to practice these instruments!
