As per usual, I started Friday Fives back when I started up the blog again and wanted to make sure I kept at least one regular post a week. This was, of course, before I knew there were others out there. But I decided to keep it, especially since I have the whole year planned out. In December, I decided to change it to Friday Fives instead to have more room for topics.
This has been a long week, as I’ve been sick. Today, I’m actually starting to feel much, much better. So without further ado, here are some of my goals for this year.
Read 100 Books: The past couple of years I have read anywhere from 50 to 70 books. College and graduate school never left a lot of time for leisure reading, or me wanting to read in general. Now that I’m done with school, this year I want to get back to reading more often like I used to, hence this year wanting to 100 books.
Continue to be active on the blog: I probably said this last year but I want to continue to be more active (and interactive) on my blog.
Reading Journal: I’ve heard of these before but never kept one myself. After seeing some of them on TikTok, I want to start keeping one myself.
Read more Diverse Books: I already want to read LGBTQ+ books for obvious reasons, but I’m also wanting to read more books by Black authors and Indigenous authors.
Monthly Reviews: Last year, I was having a difficult time writing out singular reviews for each book I read (yay for grad school). This year, I want to do monthly round-ups of the books I read in that month and mini-reviews. I’m thinking this might help keep me more on check and not stress about getting a review out for each book.
Happy Reading Darlings!
