Every year I like to set myself some new goals, especially when it comes to my reading life. I always look back to what I read, what I loved, what I learned, in order to do something different in the next year. I’m not one who love to set resolutions for herself because I know I’ll barely ever get to them during the year, but when it comes to my bookish life I’m 100% up for it.
That’s why today I’ll present you my bookish resolutions for 2020!
❥ To get back to English classics
English classics are my everything, yet I have read barely any in 2019 because I was too focused on my studies and my future and therefor only had time for quick reads (and that’s why I mostly read YA in 2019). As I miss it terribly I decided to get back to it in 2020 and I hope to discover many new Victorian and gothic gems in the next months!
❥ To read more steampunk novels
In 2017 I discovered my love for steampunk novels. I don’t know what it is, but I always feel at home when I read one. I wanted to read more of this genre in 2018 but haven’t really done it, so this time I’m sticking to it because it’s something that is truly missing to my bookish life.
❥ To catch up with Rick Riordan’s releases
I may have three books to read but I’m so sad I lost track of his books. I have been reading them ever since I was a teenager, have been up to date for years and yet in 2019 I stopped reading him and now I miss it. It’ll be easy to catch up, as I said I only have a few books to read, and I can’t wait for it.
❥ To read more Star Wars novels
2019 is the year I realized I needed Star Wars novels in my life and in 2020 I’ll make sure I’ll be reading lots of them. I already read Bloodline and am going to pick up Master and Apprentice soon but I also can’t wait to dive into the movies novelizations. It’s going to be a lot of fun and will make me feel like home because, well, Star Wars is home.
❥ To do my monthly challenge
Finally in 2020 I started something new using my TBR jar: I filled it with prompts (ex: read a fantasy novel, cover buy, last purchase…) and am now picking one per month, which will make me read a book I already own according to the prompt I pick. I am really happy with this idea I have and already picked up my January prompt, which is “read a book that is shorter than 350 pages”, an easy one!
And that’s it!
Do you set yourself bookish resolutions every year? What are yours for 2020?
