Mid Year Goals for 2020

As of writing this post, I’ve only read 31 books this year. Kind of sad for me, but I’m in the final stage of grief: acceptance.

So, normally, I’d do a Mid-Year Freak Out tag and… you can see that’s become an impossibility. Because in all honesty, I’ve only named two books a favorite, the rest have been just okay.

Either way, I can see I’m about to start rambling: I want to get back into my reading and blogging and overall bookish groove… starting with the goals and resolution. Hence this post.

Post at least twice a week.

I have so many post in my draft (41 as of writing this post), I should not be wanting for content… and yet here I am. And I can’t even make excuses anymore: I have the time to blog, I just… don’t. So, twice a week is the goal for my scheduling needs.

Which leads into my next goal…

I miss writing reviews.

You can read this review here if you want to see my cry at how good this book can be.

Reviews were the main reason I started blogging in the first place, if not the ONLY reason…

And yes, reviews take A LOT of brain power and energy out of me, but… I miss it. And I can’t say I don’t have reviews to write… I have PLENTY. So, let me get back to that.

No more TBR’s

I initially was going to do a whole “read at least once a week” thing, but that is the main reason for my reading slump in general. An entire mess, so we are ditching the TBR list until further notice. Of course, I’ll be excluding blog tour reads, but we are letting the mood reader 100% take over.

(We’re also going to ignore how behind I am on ARC’s).

Utilize Twitter more.

As of late I’ve gotten a lot more opportunities that I probably wouldn’t have gotten through the means of Twitter. Yes, I have an unending fear of social media, but I’m slowly learning that I can actually use this to my advantage. So, that’s what I’m going to try to do more for the latter half of the year.

Yall should follow me on Twitter and Instagram though… I’m trying this self promo thing out.

Don’t worry about my Goodreads goal.

I have no idea why I’ve been so scared to lower my Goodreads goal: maybe I feel like a failure, maybe I feel like I should be able to do this, maybe I’m overestimating myself, but I still just.. haven’t lowered it. I should probably go do that.

I know this is a short list of goals, but again: we’re not trying to put too much on my plate. BUT! Have you made any goals this year? How’s that going for you? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. Good luck with your goals! My goal this year is actually to read less, but well, the pandemic happened and I’m actually reading more this year 😂 I think my blogging goal this year is to write more discussions or features post as I seem to be writing so many reviews this past year 😅

  2. […] Now, I am HORRIBLY behind on ARC’s. Terribly so, which is why I won’t really be a set TBR. Usually, I put about five reads here as a loose guideline of what I kind of want to get to, but I’m letting my mood reader take hold of me for the remainder of 2020 (kind of). […]
