2021 Bookish Goals

Last week, I shared my goals for 2021. There are seven themes I want to focus on this year, and one of those is to invest time in what brings me joy. Getting specific with that goal primarily involves my bookish life. After having a baby early last year, I was so happy that I made an effort to actively pursue those two hobbies. I want to continue that momentum in 2021! I was inspired to break down that general goal into more specific mini goals for today's Top Ten Tuesday topic. So, here are some of the things I'm hoping to accomplish in my bookish life this year:

1. Read 100 books in 2021.
This is my Goodreads Challenge goal, which I prefer to keep attainable rather than truly challenging.

2. Re-read one book per month.
I love re-reading, so I always want to make time for it in my reading life. I've already got a few books in mind!

3. Read one non-fiction book per month. 
I rediscovered my love of non-fiction in 2020, and I've love to continue reading more of it in 2021.

4. Read 10 books that have been on my TBR since before 2019.
Last year, I made a list of 10 specific books to read... but kinda failed at it. I'm keeping my options open this year!

This year's challenge is more personalized, and I'm looking forward to choosing twelve categories that work for me.

6. Blog 2x per week, on average.
This was the perfect goal for me in 2020, so I'm keeping it in 2021. It kept me consistent without stressing me out.

7. Research email newsletter options.
One aspect of my blog I'd love to improve are email subscriptions, so I've got to do my research to learn more.

8. Catch up on all NetGalley reviews (15 total).
Most are upcoming releases, but I have at least six unreviewed books going back to 2016. I want to get them done!

9. Buy one book from an indie bookstore (The Bookshelf) every month.
I love the From the Front Porch podcast and would love to support Annie's bookstore in Thomasville, Ga.

10. Read my Book of the Month pick(s) in the month that I receive it.
I was lowkey doing this in 2020 until November, so I want to catch up and make it an official goal for 2021.

What are your bookish goals for 2021?


  1. I would love to research newsletter options as well. Let me know if you want to tag team that goal. I have started in the past but I got stuck when mail chimp needed a domain email address. Great goals!

    I'm trying to read older books and series, with a big emphasis on netgalley books. (I have...umm a few more than 15 haha!) and cataloging all of my ebooks/cleaning out my kindle. It's a big undertaking because im currently in the thousands of ebooks alone.

  2. I've got a similar goal to get my NetGalley shelf cleaned up by the end of 2021! We can make it happen ;)
