In just a few days, we will bid 2019 goodbye and welcome the new year of 2020. Another year to reflect, explore, learn, have fun and of course, READ!
I may not be doing a lot of blogging lately but I am good at the reading department. And with all the reading that I have been doing, I realized that writing a book review in my blog is a way to help myself remember my thoughts and feelings as I was reading a certain book. This year, I have realized the importance of blogging as I looked back at the previous books that I have read but did not review.
So let me start reviving this blog and becoming a better blogger by posting my bookish resolution. I don’t want to wrap-up my year yet because I know I can still squeeze a lot of reading in the last few days of the year.
So I will quit chatting and start listing my bookish resolution for 2020.
1.) Read 60 Books
This year I have already read 56 books and my goal is just 35. So I want to challenge myself to read more than I did this year. I think the only reason as to why I read a lot this year is I became obsessed with reading manga that’s why it seems like I have read a lot but not really.😅
2.) Write Book Reviews
There are a lot of books that I have read that I do not recall any thoughts or feelings that I have while reading it but then it would suddenly came back to me the moment that I read my review. So writing a book review is in itself a way to document my reading for the sake of helping my future self recall things and feelings that I once felt while reading a book. I will also try to put out other contents in this blog other than book reviews.
3.) Explore Different Genres
Most of the books that I have read this year are fantasy. But I want to read and explore other genres too like mystery/thriller which I highly enjoy while reading it and also sci-fi. I would also like to read more standalone as I have been marathoning a lot of series this year.
4.) Read most of my physical books
I know we all have the same problem of hoarding books even though we still have a lot of unread books on our shelves. But the thing is, I’ve been doing quite good with this one for this year. I’ve been trying to avoid buying new releases because I want to read most of the books in my shelf. The books that I bought this year are part of the series that I already read or have in my shelf. I’ve been behind with all the new releases for this year for doing so but it’s alright. I want to buy them in boxed sets and marathon them anyway.
5.) Read big books
I’ve been watching BookswithEmilyFox on YouTube and I would like to try her challenge of reading big books. However, her challenge is reading 1 big book a month but I will not be too hard on myself, I will try to read 2 big books in a year. If I can do more, well it’s good. But if not, at least 2 is enough.
6.) Enjoy reading
To be honest, there is a point in my reading life this year where reading feels like a chore. It’s like I only read to put out contents for my blog which is not the point of starting this blog. I want to get back to the days where reading is my stress reliever and a way to relax; not a way of pressuring and pushing myself to read more just for the sake of my blog.
That’s all for this blog! Let me know if you have any bookish resolution this year.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!😘
Till next time!
