I really hope I’m not the only one who’s writing their 2021 Reading Goals late in January. However, this is literally the only time I have had since I’ve been adjusting to my new work for the past two weeks.
Life update: Yes, I have a new job. Yay! I really feel like it’s been a great way for me to start the new year with a blank slate. I just started working again last week and things have been pretty exciting.
Now onto the actual reading goals.
I failed by 2020 Reading Challenge after setting 40 books as a goal and reading just three. I was really busy focusing on my career last year, with the pandemic hitting us hard and all that. During the days I spent at home during the lockdown period, I didn’t even pick up a book.
Goals in Threes
This year, I’m sticking to three books again, but I have more than that which I really want to get into. Then again, as one of my resolutions, I’m not going to pressure myself into reading because I want to enjoy it at my own pace.
I want to share the books I really want to read and these are going to be some of my choices for this year. If you might know, I’m a mood reader so I pick up books based on what I feel on a certain day that I decide to read, and I’m keeping all the options I could have.
These are the 3 backlist titles that I’m really hoping to finish this year. I’ve actually already started with You Deserve Each Other because of the hype I see on Twitter. Meanwhile, since I’m really into Korean Dramas, I know I’ll be able to pick up Somewhere Only We Know and Dokkaebi in no time. Especially since I loved both authors’ previous works.
Upcoming and Recent Releases
Like the previous authors, I’ve already read 2 out of 3 authors. Although Rachel Lynn Solomon is familiar, I haven’t read any of her works yet, and The Ex-Talk looks really cute and interesting because romance and podcasts are a big yes for me!
As for Courtney Summers and Kara Thomas, they’re my favorite thriller queens! I’m really excited to read their upcoming books! I really hope I could snag a copy of both soon! Sadie was my top read for 2018 and I want to experience the same emotions I felt back then.
I really hope I can stick to my goal because I miss the feeling of reading books for fun!
