Bookish Goals for 2023

I’m a goal setter and a list maker. One of my favorite things about a new year is making lists of things I want to do: books to read, projects to make, things to learn. Here are my reading goals for 2023:

1. Read one classic a month.

I love classics: Austen, the Bronte sisters, and more. There are so many great classics I read in school and would love to read again, and even more that I’ve never read. This month, I’m starting with a classic series that I can’t believe I’ve never read: The Lord of the Rings. I’m currently in the middle of The Fellowship of the Ring and I love it!

2. Read one nonfiction per month.

Fiction is my favorite, but the older I get, the more I appreciate good nonfiction. I’ve discovered a love for crafting books and want to read more. I also love to garden, but I’m very new to it—last year’s garden was my first ever. I want to read more on the topic and learn all I can. I also have a big list of biographies I’d love to tackle.

3. Review every book.

I already give every book a star rating on Goodreads and I review a lot of them, but I want to do better and give each book a full review, even if it’s only a sentence or two.

4. Read my physical books.

I love doing book tours and review teams, so I read quite a few physical books. However, I rarely re-read books. Once I finish a book, I usually donate it to our church library or our local public library. I currently have a backlog of books from tours and giveaways that I need to read and donate.

5. Keep a book journal.

I’m on my third year of digital planning, and this year I added a digital book journal. I’m excited about it! Although I track and review my books on Goodreads, I wanted a more detailed log, too, a place where I can track quotes and more.

What are your reading goals for this year?
