2021 Reading Goals & January TBR

New year, new reading goals!

I had a very successful 2020 reading wise. I think it is because I had no concrete goals set up for that year. Maybe knowing I had no big goal to meet, I was able to read without pressure. This year, I want to get specific. Let’s see if that ruins my momentum..

2021 Reading Goals

  1. Read 120+ books
    —I read 108 last year, and that was without me trying to. I think 120 is a reasonable goal, but I won’t beat myself up if I can’t reach it.
  2. Read at least 1 book a month from my Goodreads tbr that was added before 2018
    —My tbr is so huge and a lot are from before 2018. I want to start clearing out that tbr and delete books I am no longer interested in.
  3. Reach and maintain a Netgalley ratio of 80%
    —My ratio is currently around 55%. I plan to read a lot of my arc this month!
  4. Read a book from my physical tbr every month
    —Thankfully there isn’t too much, since I tend to buy physical books AFTER reading and loving it.
  5. Write and post at least 4 book reviews on my blog per month
    —This will help me prioritize arcs and stay active.
  6. Read books with more diversity and poc authors
    —I feel I am definitely doing this already, but I can always read more and promote them!

These are it for my main goals. I also want to participate in book clubs and more buddy reads! But I will do that as opportunities present themselves. What are some of your goals?

January TBR

This is the release month of a lot of my arcs! So this is going to be quite a busy month. I also have lots of buddy reads and a couple book clubs!
*=arc, ♥=book club/buddy read

After putting it all together like this, I now realize I have 14 books on my tbr.. Wish me luck!

What are you reading this month?


we are all stardust and stories…
