2021 Reading Goals

Hey everyone, and welcome back to the blog! It’s officially January, and I hope that the year is going to be kind to you. I got one am glad to see the back of 2020, and I bet you are too! This being said, we are back in lockdown in the UK, due to Covid 19, so things are a little frustrating…

Today, I’m going to talk about my plans and goals for this years reading. I’m always adding books that I’m interested in on the Want to Read tab on Goodreads, and also my Private list on Amazon – namely for Kindle books I’m thinking of buying. On Goodreads, I track the number of books I’ve read, and set my goal for the year.

So let’s look at the stats for the year that was 2020…

I set my goals to 100 books as usual, and I managed to complete this. My final count was 161 – I can’t believe it! This means I read a whopping total of 58,014 pages! I do blame lockdown for this though…

The shortest book I read in 2020, according to Goodreads, was The Moomins and the Great Flood by Tove Jansson, which is the first book in The Moomins children’s fantasy series. This follows the Moomin family as they are trying to find a new home… This was the hardback edition, and came in at a mere 60 pages.

The longest book I read in 2020, according to Goodreads, was The Stand by Stephen King. This is an adult horror, which follows a group of survivors, when a deadly flu pandemic kills many of the world’s population… Maybe a little close to home! This was the paperback edition, and came in at a huge 1327 pages.

Once again, my goal for the year is 100 books. I feel it is definitely achievable for me, and if I go over, then that’s amazing. Whilst 2020 was a year for the history books (no pun intended), it brought me many new reads – some I loved, some I liked, some I disliked. I can only hope that this new year will bring me more great books.

So that completes my reading goals for the upcoming year! How many books are you aiming to read? Let me know!
