Blogmas: 2021 book plans

 

In 2019 I made some ambitious book plans for 2020 which I stuck to…..for about 2 months!

Then the world turned to crap starting with COVID, anxiety was high and it all went out the window! (and then I deleted my draft catch up post in disgust at myself!!!!)

I looked back at this year and examined! I’m still feeling a bit pressured and I think it’s because I read both YA fantasy and romance and that I need to change my reading habits as I just can’t read it all, even though I want to!!!

The genre I’m suffering more with is romance. Maybe suffering is the wrong word, but I’ve found I have dropped a lot of these reads in favour of YA because it just holds my attention and I actually look forward to read. So….

MAIN GOAL

For 2021 I’m going to read what I want!


Only buy romance books from my unicorn authors

I might be shooting myself in the foot here, I mean what if I miss a gem from a new author? <—– and this is why I end up with a huge tbr!


Fairyloot books

Read within a month of receiving. I had 11 books to catch up on by August and, whilst I loved the month I did to catch up, I don’t want them to pile up again.


Read tbr

Here we go again, same old, same old….but I had to put it in!


Reading Challenges

I’m not going to say no challenges as I completely failed that this year but going to amend to if I do a challenge, don’t pick out books beforehand!


 

So that’s it.

Too ambitious?

What are your reading goals for 2021?

  1. I don’t know Caro. I think I’ll lower my GR challenge to 50 instead of 100 just not to feel any pressure, even if I usually end up reading around 120 books.

    1. I did that this year. I set at 52, so a book a week but then upped to 92 when I’d hit that in July I think. I’m going to set to 70 I think this year but am a bit undecided!

    1. Thanks! I think 100 is a good number, that’s like 2 books a week (and you can always lower it halfway through the year if you don’t think you’ll meet it!)

  2. Good luck my friend…I just put my TBR list in a box inside my head and forget about it! In other words, I try not to let it get to me and I just read whatever I’m in the mood for. It’s made me a lot happier this year, LOL!πŸ˜‰πŸ€ͺ

    1. I really reduced arcs this year and I think for 2021 that I’ll come down to hardly none as its just so freeing to read what I want and not feel pressured to read by a certain date!
