Every year I set a goal for how many books I want to read the next year… and that’s about it. This year I’m feeling inspired to change things a little bit so I decided to add a few more reading goals to keep things interesting! So here are the reading goals I’m setting for 2021:
- Read 60 books
Every year I define a goal for myself for the number of books I want to read the following year. The last few years made me realise that picking a goal of 60 books (5 books per month) is a very reasonable goal for me. I work 40 hours a week on my full-time job, so to me this number is doable. I usually change the number after achieving the goal, but 60 books will be my bare minimum!
- Read all Colleen Hoover’s books
I loved every single Colleen Hoover book I put my hands on. There are still a lot of them I didn’t pick up, so one of my goals for 2021 is to get them all and read them. The ones that I still didn’t read are: the Hopeless series, the Slammed series, Layla, Verity, November 9, Ugly Love, the Maybe series, Too Late and All Your Perfects… and of course, whatever she publishes in 2021! Yes, there are a lot of books included in this goal, but I’m not that worried about it because I always go through her books quickly.
- Read all Kasie West’s books
Kasie West is one of the main reasons why I read so much. Her books always filled me with joy and brightness, so this year I decided I would finish all of her books. I think this goal will be simple because right now I’m only missing two books: Split Second (Pivot Point #2) and Sunkissed. My plan is to reread the first book from the Pivot Point series – just because I want to have the story fresh in my mind – and then read Split Second. Sunkissed is going to be published in May 2021 and I’m planning to get my hands on that book as soon as possible. It’s a simple goal, but an exciting one!
- Read the fantasy series I always wanted to read
There are so many series I want to go through, but who has the time? My to-be-read list is filled with fantasy series I never got to read, so in 2021 I want to go through some of them. Just to name a few:
- A Court of Thorns and Roses
- City of Bones
- Shatter Me
- The Raven Boys
- Ready Player One
- Throne of Glass
- And so many more!
I’m not even going to mention them all here because there are so many, but I really want to start (and finish!) some of these series.
- Change NetGalley score to 100%
This is probably the most difficult goal I have on this list. Let’s just say I was young and dumb when I started requesting books on NetGalley. I will write a post about this in the near future, but long story short: my current NetGalley score is not as good as I wanted. I currently have 14 books with pending reviews so one of my goals for this year is to turn this number around and write the long due reviews. I’m not sure if I’m going to accomplish this, but I’m still hopeful!
And that’s it guys, these are my 2021 reading goals! Let me know what are your reading goals for the next year and why you chose them. I wish you a great reading year with amazing books 🙂
Thank you so much for reading!
