Reflecting on 2020 and looking to 2021

Hello loves!

So I know that this wrap up style post is a little bit late but you know that’s ok, I’v had a lot going on and have only now begun to sit down and reflect on last year. But here it is now and it’s better late than never right?

Anyways, I guess I’m just going to get into it lol.

2020 reading

Last year I had a really great reading year! It was actually the first year I ever finished my goodreads challenge, which was set at 50 books and I’m hoping to carry this on this year (you’ll see what I set my goal at for this year in a little bit).

I actually read 61 books last year and for me that is super impressive, I’m hoping to co tin to raise the amount of books that I read every year and who knows maybe one day I’ll get to 100 books haha.

I sadly didn’t track any stats last year but I’m going to this year and so you can look forward to a nice and detailed 2021 wrap up this time next year.

Anyways, I did however discover that I really enjoy Middle Grade books and contemporary romance (two very different genres I know) but oh well, and I’m going to try and read more of both this year.

That is pretty much all I have to say so I guess it is time to move over to this year and any goals that I have set for myself.

2021 bookish goals

First of all, my goodreads challenge! I set it at 60 books this year in the hope that I will either match the amount of books I read last year or read more books than last year. Of course if I miss my goal then that’s ok too but I guess we will have to wait and see!

Other than that I haven’t set any real concrete goals but I am part of a lovely group of people taking part in the Hardcore TBR game which focuses on reading your way through your current TBR instead of buying more books and so I guess one of my goals is to get through my owned TBR (its at around 50-60 books which is really tinny compared to quite a lot of you, but I’ve only been blogging for just over half a year so give me a few years lol).

Another sort of vague bookish goal is to read more books “outside of my comfort zone” to try and broaden the genres that I read because I have been predominantly been reading YA fiction for quite a while now and I would like to read more books, like some more Middle Grade books and some more murder mystery books e.t.c. I’m tracking the genres that I’m reading this year so again, I guess we will see what happens over the next 12 months.

Other than that, I just want to have fun because that is the real reason why I read and why I started this blog so here is to 2021 and let’s hope (although it doesn’t look like it) that it’s better than 2020!

Stay safe, stay healthy, and keep learning!
