This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.
The start of the year is a good time to set new goals and aims for the coming year. There are a couple of things I’d really like to have ticked off when I’m sitting here this time next year. Let’s see if I actually do them.
Read 100 books and save €1 for every book I read
It seems like a lot, but I have consistently read over that in the last three years. I’m not too worried about crossing this one off.
Every book I finish, I save €1 and go on a little spending spree at the beginning of the new year. It’s one of my favourite things to do, and a highlight of my new year when January can be quite rough.
Read an entire book in German
My German is pretty strong, but I don’t know if it’s “entire book in German” strong. I’m thinking of readign Roald Dahl’s Matilda in German as I already have it on my shelf and it was the first book I ever finished by myself.
Finish at least 75 per cent of every TBR I set
I’ve set a lot of TBRs, mainly seasonal but also some for readathons across the year. The issue is, I set them but never prioritise the books on them. This year I’d really like to read at least the majority of those books I’ve intended to get to.
Maintain at least 75 per cent feedback ratio on Netgalley
My Netgallley habits can be a bit up and down. Some months the majority of books I read are Netgalley ARCs, then others I completely forget I have an account. I’d like to get my score to around 75 per cent, with a possibly unachievable goal of 80 per cent.
Finish the PopSugar Reading Challenge
In 2021 I had just one prompt I didn’t fulfil, and there’s now a huge fire in my belly to tick off all 50 this year. A few of these prompts will take me far from my reading comfort zone, but I’m excited to see what books are ahead for me this year.
