As we move to the New Year, I’ve been thinking about all of my goals for the upcoming year. Today, I thought it would be great to share some of my bookish goals for 2020 with the New Year’s Resolutions Book Tag. Here are my answers:
- An author that you’d like to read that you’ve never read before
I haven’t read a book by Debbie Rigaud before, but Truly, Madly, Royally has been on my list for awhile and looks like the perfect cute contemporary to kick off a new reading year.
- A book you’d like to read
I’m a huge fan of Kasie West, so I’m extremely excited for the next book in the Love, Life, and the List companion series. While I loved Love, Life, and the List, I wasn’t so crazy about Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss. As a result, I’m really hoping Hearts, Heroes, and Heath Hall (also listed as Moment of Truth on Goodreads) lives up to my high expectations.
- A classic you’d like to read
I don’t typically pick up classics, but I know that I will read Peter Pan next year as it is used in one of the units in my classroom. Peter Pan is an exciting book to teach because it is the first “big book” that students typically study in my school.
- A book you’d like to re-read
Like I mentioned earlier, I love Kasie West’s books and I really enjoyed one of her 2019 releases, Maybe This Time. I usually re-read some Kasie West books every year, so I can see myself picking this one up again in 2019.
- A book you’ve had for ages and want to read
I’ve literally wanted to read this book for YEARS. However, come summer time, I usually look for happy, light reads. Knowing this will be sad, I typically don’t pick it up during summer. Hopefully, I can finally read it this year because I enjoy Morgan Matson’s books.
- A big book you’d like to read
Contemporaries seem to get longer and longer every year and The Rest of the Story was no exception in 2019. I didn’t get to this book during this year, so I hope to read it during the upcoming summer.
- An author that you’ve previously read and want to read more of
I enjoyed Serious Moonlight in 2019 by Jean Bennett, so I hope to pick up her latest book in 2019.
- A book you got for Christmas and would like to read
I didn’t receive any books for Christmas this year, but I did receive Archenemies as a gift last year… and never read it. Hopefully, I will pick it up this year so I can read the latest release in this series, Supernova.
- A series you want to read from start to finish
I won’t be able to read this series from start to finish since book one will be released next year, however, I hope to read it from start to finish once all the books come out. This will be a new series by Kiera Cass, the author of The Selection.
- A series you want to finish that you’ve already started
This is the third book in the When Dimple Met Rishi companion series and follows Pinky and Samir as they pretend to date. I enjoyed There’s Something About Sweetie, so I hope to enjoy the next installment of this series.
- Do you set reading goals? If so, how many books do you want to read in 2020?
I usually set a Goodreads goal of 50 books, but this year I will take it down to 25 books. I have been extremely busy recently and I don’t want to put myself under too much pressure to reach my goal.
Like always, I hope to branch out into new genres, adult books, and discover new favorite authors!
