#2021ReadingGoals

2020 has been a rough year for all of us, with the pandemic and fighting for social justice I had trouble focusing on reading.  I also took a much needed step back from blogging.  A few months ago I significantly lowered my Goodreads reading goal from 115 books to 50 books, which you can read about here.

These past few days, I started thinking about my goals and the reading challenges that I will be doing in 2021.  Without further ado, below you will find my reading goals and the challenges that I will be doing.

Reading goals:
Goodreads Challenge: 1 book.  Yes, you read that right.  I know for a fact that I will read at least 1 book in 2021.  I have seen a few Booktubers do this in the past, and think that it’s a great idea.  Honestly, setting my goal to just 1 book takes the pressure and stress off of reading x amount of books and feeling like I have to read that number.  Something that I hate doing is lowering my reading goal which I had to do this year.

Read more backlist books
Read more books about social justice written by Black authors to educate myself even more

Challenges:
Modern Mrs. Darcy– This year’s challenge is so unique and different, you can choose your own reading adventure!
Library Love– Dewey Decimal: Read 12 books

Blogging goals:
Post weekly reading updates
Post weekly reviews
Try to post more discussion posts

Stay tuned for my November/December wrap-up and my 2020 Reading Year Review!
