My Reading Goals for 2021 and my January TBR

Yay, my first TBR post … and also the first TBR of 2021. Let’s hope this new year will be better than the old one! So, here’s my January TBR and my Reading Goals for 2021!

My Reading Goals for 2021

Last January I decided that I would read 52 books in 2020. It seemed daunting at first. After all, it meant I had to read one book every week!Yet, thanks to Covid 19 and the lockdown in my country I finished book number 52 in May … who would have thought?!

After that, I increased my goal to 100 books. I reached this new goal in September and couldn’t be bothered with setting a new one. In the end, I read 145 books in 2020. I have to say, I’m quite proud of myself, even though it was only possible because of the very unusual circumstances.

I know that in 2021 I won’t have as much free time on my hands as I had last year. Still, I’ll go for 100 books again. It seems to be a challenging but also realistic goal. You’ve got to keep it realistic, right?
