Just like that, another year has come around. Whilst I didn’t spend New Year’s Eve getting drunk with friends, I did spend the time thinking about my goals for 2021 (you can see what my goals for the year are here).
I already mentioned in that post that I intend to read more books this year but I thought I’d break down some more specific reading goals for the year in this post. So, let’s get into it, shall we?
Read 50 books
Last year – which feels weird to say – I read 53 books (an achievement I can only assume was down to being locked down for a good portion of 2020). I plan to read 50 books again this year though I wouldn’t mind reading more than that, but we’ll see!
Write more reviews
I wrote a lot of book reviews in 2020, for NetGalley, as part of blog tours, or just to share my thoughts on books on my shelf and – though reviews take time and they do give me a feeling of “my reviews aren’t as good as “insert blogger name here”” at times – I hope to write more reviews and share more of my thoughts.
Try to stay at 70/80% on NetGalley
Though I do feel extremely lucky to have got to whatever rating I’m at on NetGalley, and I’m incredibly thankful for every opportunity and every ARC I’ve received, I hope to stay at 70/80% so I can be in with more of a chance of reading more incredible releases in 2021.
Keep a reading journal/tracker
I bought a bullet journal a few days prior to January 1st, after debating it for ages, and I hope to use it (in part) to keep track of the books I read this year – my thoughts, my ratings and anything else that comes to mind.
Read more books on my Kindle
Due to working from home, participating in blog tours and whatever else, I didn’t really take the time to sit down and read on my Kindle. I’ve bought a lot of books on my Kindle in recent years and – before I buy any more books – I plan to make a dent in the books I already have.
What are your reading goals for 2021? I’d love to chat in the comments 😊.

I’ve been bullet Journaling since 2016 and it’s been great at helping me keep my reviews and ARC schedule organized.

I’m hoping it’ll have the same outcome for me (though I’ve only just finished my 2021 at a glance page so anything can happen 😂)
I hope to read 70 books this year and read more physical books as my collection is getting quite big! Rachel x
