The New Year Book Tag

I recently read the New Year book tag over on the lovely Lois’ blog which I think originated on Bookables YouTube channel, and I decided to give it a go myself. It’s been a while since I completed a tag but it’s definitely something I want to do more of!

How many books are you planning on reading in 2020?

I set my Goodreads goal to 30, the same as last year. Although I have beaten that for the past few years, I still like to set it lower than I expect to reach so that I don’t feel pressured to complete it and also because I feel accomplished when I’ve done it like halfway into the year!

Name five books you didn’t get to read in 2019 but want to make a priority in 2020?

So I’ve actually only recently posted about ten books that I didn’t read last year but are a priority for this year! Here are five but you can read about the rest here:

  • The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
  • Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
  • Scythe by Neal Shusterman
  • Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan
  • Furyborn by Claire Legrand

Name a genre you want to read more of in 2020?

One of my favourite books of 2019 was a YA thriller and it’s a genre I definitely don’t read enough of! If you have any recommendations then please send them my way.

Three non-book related goals for 2020?

Drink at least two litres of water a day, go back to lifting weights and be more organised with my finances.

What’s a book you’ve had forever that you still need to read?

Almost all of the Cassandra Clare books.

One word that you’re hoping 2020 will be? 


Please feel free to complete the New Year book tag if you’re reading this!

  1. I’ve chosen 30 as my reading goal too 😅 So in sync!

    I always find that there’s a limited amount of thrillers classed as YA but always enjoy them when I find them. Also defintely read Scythe and the rest of the series! I proper rushed through them just before Xmas when I was coming out of a slump! x
