So last year I set myself a couple of simple goals but how did I do?
I set my Goodreads challenge at 100.
I managed to surpass this by reading 104. I’m going to be honest it was a bit of a struggle to get there, especially as I DNF the highest number of books I ever have last year. I can’t give you an accurate amount but it was between ten to fifteen.
Clear eleven books from my NetGalley shelf that have been on there since 2018.
Yeah, I failed on this one. I did however manage to read three. (Click the links to take you to my reviews).
The only bright spark is I did manage to get my NetGalley ratio up to 78% just 2% off the coveted 80%
This wasn’t a goal but I thought I’d mention the fact I managed to get 50k all time views for my blog.
A huge thank you to everyone who has read these bookish rambles of mine these past four years!
So on to my goals this year:
Set my Goodreads goal at 75.
Trying to ease a bit of the pressure on myself and just enjoy reading.
Get my NetGalley feedback ratio up to 80%.
As I mentioned earlier I’m currently at 78% and as long as I can control myself it’s doable.
Try and read all my outstanding arcs from NetGalley.
Bit of a harder one. I’ve currently got 62 books gathering dust on my shelf. Some of them are for blog tours but still.
Read more of my physical books.
I haven’t counted but I must have at least 100 unread physical books on my shelves. To help with my backlog of books I’m taking part with Owl Be Sat Reading’s hashtag #beatthebacklog over on twitter.
And finally: cut down on blog tours.
Much as I love taking part in them, it can be quite draining. I went through a couple of health issues in 2021 which made it difficult to keep up with everything (my own fault), so I want to go a little easier on myself this year.
So that’s everything. What about you, what are your reading goals for 2022?
