Hi all, I hope 2021 is treating you well so far and welcome to the New Year book tag!
I wasn’t necessarily tagged to do this but saw it over on Lois’ blog and thought why the heck not. It will also be fun to look back on this at the end of the year and see whether I actually succeeded at any of these. I also just really like tag posts!
Let’s get into the New Year book tag.
How many books are you planning on reading in 2021?
I’ve set my initial goal at 50 books. I read just over 100 in 2020 and have hit over 50 for a few years in a row now, but I like to set my goal to lower than I think I will achieve just to take some of the pressure off.
Name five books you didn’t get to read in 2020 but want to make a priority in 2021?
Oh wow. Well, I actually have a full post on those books here but if I’m picking just five I’m going to go with:
- The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
- City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
- Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
- The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
- Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall
Name a genre you want to read more of in 2021?
In 2020 I read a ton of romance and fantasy, and I definitely want to continue with that because they’re my faves, but I also have some highly anticipated thrillers on my TBR for the year.
Three non-book related goals for 2021
I would love to start learning a new language, implement yoga into my routine (and keep it up) and try and establish a good sleep routine!
What’s a book you’ve had forever that you still need to read?
For this I’m going to go with Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. It was published in 2016 and I’ve basically had it on my shelves since then. I’ve started it a couple of times but just never got through it. It’s on my list for 2021 though!
One word that you hope 2021 will be?
Thanks for sticking around for the New Year book tag! A nice short and sweet post for today. I’m putting good vibes out into the universe for 2021 and I’ll extend them all to you lovely people too.
If you’re reading this, I tag you!
