2020 Reading Goals

‘Tis the season to be planning, fa la la la la, Chaos roams around my brain continuously, and the best way to deal with it, is to plan. Here’s to the favourite goals I set each year, even though I end up failing them most of the time (I’m really going to try next year).

The Numbers

My main goal every year is the amount of books I want to read. In 2019 I’ve been wanting to read 50 books, and that’s what I’m going to continue throughout 2020 as well. 50 is a nice number, it doesn’t feel forced and with my reading mood all over the place it’s do-able.

Read More Classics

Every year I set myself the goal to read more classics. This year it’s going to happen, I feel it (just like last year, and the year before that). The main reason I will make it this year has to do with my current life situation. I started studying Arts & Humanities (English Literature) this year, and I want to feel more on op of my book knowledge. My goal is to read one classic a month, which should help me get a good start.

Read my shelf

The last couple of years, the library has been my best friend. I’ve had stacks of library books at home, and that’s about all I read. This year I want to focus more on my own bookshelves, which contain a majority of books I haven’t read. My goal is to read at least 12 books from my own shelves.


My last reading goal is to get more involved with readathons. I’ve done a few and enjoy them so much. Whenever I attend a readathon, I feel more connected with the bookcommunity and it boosts my reading mood. To achieve this goal, I want to prepare more. Everytime I join a readathon, it’s last-minute and it becomes chaotic and I get a bit stressed. This year, I want to stay on top of the readathons coming up and decently prepare my reading for them.

These four will be my reading goals for 2020. At the end of the year I get so excited and I can’t wait to start next year.

Do you have any reading goals for 2020? Let me know!
