Every year I like to set myself reading goals for the year and even though I do not often complete them it is so interesting to look back on. I always have the basic of how many books I want to read and then a few extra challenges. One of my main challenges this year is to post on here consistently which has been a real challenge in the past year but hopefully I will be able to keep up this year!
1. Read 100 Books
This has been my goal for the last few years and although I have not achieved it yet I have a good feeling about this year. I want to try and read 100 pages a day so I think this will be doable as long as I stick to this.
2. Read A Book from Every Letter of The Alphabet
This just sounds like such a fun challenge to try and do. I think it sounds like it will be really easy when in reality some of the letters are going to be really challenging to do such as X and U. I am not going to be including ‘The’ in the titles so that will make it a little easier.
3. Read more Greek books and retellings
This year in May I am going to Athens and before I go, I really want to read more books based around there. I have a few on my TBR such as Elektra by Jennifer Saint and Greek Myths: A Retelling by Charlotte Higgins. By the time I go to Greece I want to know as much as possible so when I am seeing the temples, I understand the story behind them.
4. Read More Classics
This is on my goals every year and every year I only read about one. So, this year I want to make a huge effort to try and read some classics that I’ve had on my shelf for the longest. Some of the ones I want to attempt to get to is Dracula by Bram Stoker, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and A Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.
5. Reduce My TBR
My TBR has got out of control in the past couple of years and I really want to try and improve how many books I read compared to how many books I buy. I want to try and get it at least to 75 less than I start with and hopefully filming my progress will help!
These are my five main goals for the year, and I really think that these are all manageable. In my wrap-up each month I will update about my progress, and I hope you enjoy following along with me! Let me know your goals for 2023 in the comments!
