Happy New Year! I thought I would ring in the new year by completing the New Year’s book tag. Here are my answers:
- How many books are you planning to read in 2020?
Last year, I made my goal 50 books. However, each year keeps getting busier and busier and I find myself drawn to many new activities that also take up time. For example, this year I put a large focus on writing too. Additionally, I faced a major reading slump this year after reading so much over my reading goal the past three years. As a result, I am going to make my goal 25 books to put less pressure on myself and make room to try new activities that can also bring me joy.
- Name 5 books that you didn’t get to this past year but want to make a priority in 2019.
There are several books that I planned to read in 2019, but either never finished or even started because of a massive reading slump. In the upcoming year, I hope to read Archenemies by Marissa Meyer, The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen, Don’t Date Rosa Santos by Nina Moreno, The Geography of Lost Things by Jessica Brody, and A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer (which I DNF’d earlier this year).
- What genre do you want to read more of?
I would like to read more books that aren’t contemporary. I mostly read contemporary, with the occasional fantasy book, so it would be nice to venture into any genre outside of that.
- Name 3 not-related-to-book goals for 2020.
I got a Fitbit for Christmas, so I would like to become more active. Even though I am on my feet at work, whenever I get home, I am not extremely active. Going along with that, I want to eat healthier. Cooking is not a preferred activity for me and I am a pro at ordering food through apps on my phone. It would be nice to making cooking and eating healthy a priority in the upcoming year. Also, I guess this relates to books, but it is more writing than reading: I want to finish all the drafts of m6 current work in progress and start writing a new book this year.
- What’s a book you have had forever and are determined to read?
I’ve been saying for years that I would read Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson and maybe I will finally commit to it in this new decade. I’m a happy book person and I feel like this book will be sad, which is why I put it off for so long. However, I love books by Morgan Matson, so I feel like I need to read this one.
- One word that you’re hoping 2020 will be
I hope that 2020 will be… new. I want to try a lot of new things and grow as a person. This year I turned 25, so I’m starting the second half of my twenties, which is crazy to me!
