Welcome to 2021! It’s going to be my first full year of Toastie Books and I’m excited to get cracking. I thought I’d talk about my goals for 2021 with you guys now.
So 2020 was my best reading year yet but I’ve set my Goodreads Challenge at 150 books. This is because I’d like to try and do things other than read – I want to learn how to do hand lettering, I need to go on more walks, and maybe try some new video games
So I did join my local library in 2020, but my phone couldn’t handle the app. It occurred to me that since I now have a new phone, I should try and use the online library services more! In the UK, that means I’ve downloaded Borrow Box, where my library lets me have 5 eBook loans and 5 Audiobook loans at any one time.
OK, so I have never really been into Audiobooks – the only one that was bearable to me was Becoming by Michelle Obama. BUT I’d like to try more, using the library app in particular as it will allow me to try Audiobooks for free and return them if I don’t get on with them.
I had a good year of blogging in 2020. This year I think I’d like to make sure I write a blog length review for all eARCs that I give 4 or more stars. I tend to review only the best books on this blog as I’d like it to be positive. I’d also like to post one book review a week.
I currently have 11 NetGalley books that I need to read. I think for this year, I’d just like to keep my feedback percentage at 80% and make sure I keep on top of publishing reviews to Amazon, Goodreads and other sites.
I set myself a challenge to read one Non-Fiction book per month every year. Despite having read loads of books in 2020, I didn’t keep up with this. So the goal remains for 2021 and hopefully I will be successful this time.
I actually read a lot of diverse books in 2020, so I’d like to carry on doing the same, and maybe even increase the diversity of the books I read even more. I should do better and blogging and tweeting about them too.
So, that’s the end of my goals post. What do you think, do you think I can achieve them? What are your goals for 2021?
