Let’s Talk Bookish: Reading Resolutions

Hello everyone! The year 2020 just ended and today marks the start of another year. I am so glad that 2020 is over and I’m just hoping that 2021 will be a better year. 2020 was just not my year including in the aspect of reading.

This week’s Let’s Talk Bookish topic is Reading Resolutions. I am so glad about this topic because it gives me a chance to ponder over what I want to achieve for this year reading-wise. I do hope that fulfill all of these resolutions.

1. Read 50 books.

I know that 50 books is not much but I have to set a goal with my schedule in consideration. 2021 will be a busier year for me and 50 is ideal number for me. Of course, I wish that I can read more but 50 would be enough for me.

2. Finish the Popsugar Reading Challenge.

Last year, I really tried my best to satisfy every prompt. However, I fell short. I got 33/40 regular prompts and only 1 advanced prompts. Even though I wasn’t able to satisfy every prompt, I’m happy that I tried. The Popsugar Reading Challenge really got me out of my comfort zone. I’ve read books that I simply wouldn’t have picked up otherwise and I do think that made me a better reader. So for 2021, I am determined to finish the challenge this time.

3. Keep a reading log.

All these past years, I just track my reading through Goodreads but this year I’ve downloaded a reading log spreadsheet. It’s a lot more detailed of tracking than I’m used to but I just want to try. As I’ve mentioned, I got out of my comfort zone this past year and I want to diversify my reading a bit more. In order to that, I need to track better, hence, a reading log.

Well… that’s it! Here are my reading resolutions for 2021. I hope I will be able to do them and I hope 2021 is a lot happier.
