Bookish Goals for 2020

Goals

Hello everyone! Today I am going to be sharing my book related goals for 2020. I am hoping to accomplish most of these goals. Some of my 2019 goals will be mentioned in this post. Let me know in the comments what are your goals for 2020!

My Goals:

  1. Interact with bloggers: I’ve come to accept that my schedule is very hectic. And sometimes I won’t be able to interact with bloggers all of the time. Regardless I’d still like to try as it is something that I enjoy doing.
  2. Use my bookstagram: I really hoping that I’ll be able to post on my bookstagram in 2020.
  3. Continue to make more content: I still want to create some more posts. And I’m hoping to do so in 2020.
  4. Continue to prioritize my reading: While I did pretty good with this goal in 2019, I’d like to focus more on my owned books (old and new releases) in 2020. In order to do so, I am taking part in the #StartOnYourShelfathon hosted by CW. I will also continue to use my priority reading list. Plus I’m trying not to buy that many books. Just a select few along with sequels.   

2019 Bookish Goals Wrap-Up

Yearly wrap up 3

Hello everyone! Today I am going to be sharing my wrap-up of my book related goals for 2019. I wasn’t able to accomplish all of my goals. Like I mentioned in my goals post I went with the flow and (for the most) part didn’t stress about meeting my goals. Let me know in the comments what are your goals wrap-up for 2019!

Goals Wrap-Up:

  1. Interact with bloggers: In the beginning of 2019 I was actually interacting with bloggers. Then life happened and I wasn’t really able to interact with anyone.
  2. Use my other social media accounts: I didn’t use Bloglovin’ to read anyone’s posts. I forgot about using Bloglovin’, and when I did remember I didn’t care to use it. Twitter was something that I have started using. And it’s been a blast!
  3. Make a Bookstagram: Towards the middle of 2019 I set-up my Instagram account for bookish purposes. Some time after I set it up I got really busy and didn’t get around to posting anything.
  4. Make more content: I was able to create some creative posts for blog tours. Which I’d never done before. And I actually enjoyed creating those posts!
  5. Sign up for blog tours: I signed up for various blog tours. Though I found that my schedule became more hectic, and didn’t give me the time to read and review books. It also became time consuming to do guest posts. In 2020 I’ll just sign up for the blog tours wherein I want to read the book. 
  6. Request ARC’s: I came across opportunities to request ARC’s via Twitter. And unfortunately I wasn’t able to read either of them because of my schedule. I don’t particularly care to do so in 2020 for that reason. I’ll still be using Netgalley but that’s about it.
  7. Focus on what I’m interested in: I was really able to find what I was interested in. Throughout 2019 I really examined my interests. I narrowed down what I liked and didn’t like. Which was great because I was reading the books that I cared about!
  8. Prioritize my reading: Throughout 2019 I started to prioritize reading books on my TBR. I did this by creating a priority reading list, several book unhauls, prioritizing myself (and my time), not stressing about reading, and started rereading. This helped so much and made 2019 a really great reading year!
