If you were to take a look at my reading recaps from the
last couple of years you would probably be surprised to know that
I LOVE to read, but I swear I do! lol In 2022 I hope to finally cross
off at least one of the goals that I have been shooting for
for years so I can finally feel like an accomplished book lover
again. Channeling high school Amy….now! Lol Hope you enjoy
reading about my reading goals.
A Look Back On My 2021 Reading Goals
Read 100 books
Setting reading goals like I am a booktuber seems to be a bit of
a stretch for me especially considering I only managed to make
it through a measly 38 books this year. A lower reading
goal is probably a good idea. Lol
Make it at least halfway through the Bible
A great goal for anyone to have and one I continue to fall short
on. Hopefully in 2022 I can do a better job with it. Perhaps I need
to set a designated Bible study time.
Read all the books I currently own (144 books)
I think I will feel a little bit better about buying more
books (because, let’s be honest, I couldn’t stop buying books
even if I wanted to) if I have at least made a sizable dent into
the books that currently grace my TBR shelf now.
Read the books that have been on my TBR list
for 2 or more years (69 books)
I am constantly adding books to my TBR and unfortunately
for some books they get pushed to the side by others. In 2021
I think I only managed to read a small handful of the books
that have been on this list for 2 years or more. Maybe one
day those books will get read. Lol
Finish the Great American Reads Reading List (78 books left)
Ever since watching this on PBS I have wanted to read all
the books on the list. I’m not going to lie though, I kind of forgot
about the list during 2021 and didn’t make it very far through it.
Final 2022 Reading Goals
Read 50 Books
In 2020 my goal was 365 books. In 2021 my goal was 100
books. After falling far short both years I decided it is best to
set the bar lower in 2022 at 50 books. Here’s to hoping I can
finally complete a Goodreads reading challenge.
Take Part in an Online Book Club
One of the booktubers I watch (BooksandLaLa) hosts a book
club every year and I have always wanted to take part in it ever
since she started it. Now with my own book club’s future appearing
to be over I plan on filling that space with hers!
Finish the Great American Read Book List
These books are said to be some of the best books to ever
be written so it is probably about time I read them myself, especially
after having this as my goal for multiple years now. Lol
Make It Halfway Through the Bible
Yet another goal that is always on the list, but never actually
gets completed. Lol 2022 are you the year that this
behemoth gets taken down? Lol
Prioritize Books I Already Own
Like every bookworm I am guilty of buying books and then
letting them sit on my shelf to collect dust while other new
releases and books take priority. This year I want to give the
books on my shelf their moment.
What are your reading goals for 2022??
