2020 Reading Goals

Hello, everyone! I know it`s been a while, and most of you probably thought I quit blogging. I`m still here, I`ve just been busy with my little baby. Yes, for those of you that are not aware, I now have a tiny adorable creature in my care. Adelina was born on 30th of September and these last months have been both a bliss and a nightmare. But I wouldn't have it any other way! She`s an amazing baby and I can`t imagine my life without her anymore.

Although being a new mother is not easy, I feel like I`m getting the hang of it. Therefore, I hope that this year will be a better one in terms of reading. Last year was a total disaster and I`ve read a grand total of 8 books. Not my proudest year, but I`m not going to feel guilty about it either. Sometimes life gets in the way, and reading should be a pleasure, not a chore. Now that the reading slump might be over, I`m ready to tackle some goals.

Goodreads challenge: 50 books
I know that this isn`t everyone`s cup of tea, but I like doing the Goodreads challenge. Sharing a goal online makes me feel accountable. I sometimes change the number depending on how I am doing mid-year, but it`s still a fun challenge nevertheless. I`m trying to read one book per week which would total a grand number of 52, but I like even numbers, so 50 it is.

Read a classic per month
When most people were reading YA, I was reading classics. I`m not saying this to brag, I actually love YA literature, which is what I`ve been reading the most these past years. But I`ve neglected my classics, and I have so many big names I want to get to.
    Possible reads: "Wuthering Heights", "Emma", "Sense and Sensibility", "Jane Eyre", "Frankenstein", "Far From The Madding Crowd", "Vanity Fair", "Agnes Grey", "A Tale of Two Cities", "Little Women", "Anna Karenina", "War and Peace", "Middlemarch".

Read 10 Stephen King books
This is getting a bit ridiculous because I have seen every adaptation of his novels, and I consider myself a fan. The only problem is that I haven`t actually read his books. But hopefully, this will change this year.
             Possible reads: "It", "The Shining", "Doctor Sleep", "Carrie", "Pet Sematary", "Christine", "The Stand", "Misery", "Sleeping Beauties", "The Green Mile", "Salem`s Lot", "Needful Things".

Read more audiobooks
At the moment it feels impossible to sit down and read a physical book, considering how energetic my little one. This is where audiobooks come in handy, as I can listen to them whilst I feed Adelina or I`m trying to get her to sleep. (somewhat of a mission impossible)

Read 10 new releases
I have an upcoming post about book releases I`m excited about, and hopefully, I`ll get to read some of them. Cause as a blogger you kinda need to talk about what`s new, right? People are looking up at you for information. And all I do is talk about my love for "Six of Crows".

In terms of book blogging, I want to post consistently again. Write at least one review per month and be active again on Instagram. I didn`t set big goals because I want them to be achievable. And what about you? What are your reading goals for 2020?

  1. Congratulations on the birth of your daughter! I think these are great goals - especially the audiobook goal.
