Reading Challenges

Reading Challenge | 2021 Reading Goals

Hello and welcome to a quick post to showcase the reading goals I have for myself this upcoming year. This year I am keeping some of the same I have had for year and others are new. I feel like it is a good mixture to challenge myself, but keeping in mind the unexpected nature 2021 will most likely have.


The Goals

Use the library once a month – I plan on using the digital resources that are part of my library membership this year. I want to use it at least once a month, but I hope to use it more.

Read 12 nonfiction books – I love reading non-fiction and I want to ensure it stays part of my reading rotation because I know as 2020 went on I read less and less of it because I wanted a bit of escapism.

Read 50 books – I do this goal every year, this is just to ensure that I read a book a week, but also some leeway if life gets in the way.

Read the International Booker Prize – I read a shortlist every year and this year I decided to read this one. I dedicated an entire post to it, Reading Challenge | Reading a Shortlist 2021, where I went over all the books that I plan on reading for this one.

I want to read 2 trilogies by Robin Hobb – I want to read both The Farseer Trilogy and Liveship Traders Trilogy this year because I hear such wonderful things about her works. Thanks to my wonderful boyfriend, I have the first two books of The Farseer Trilogy in the illustrated editions!

Reread The Hobbit and the Lord of the Ring Trilogy – I love these books and it has been quite a while since I last read them and I feel like I have forgotten so much. It is time to remedy that!

Lastly, keep my owned TBR under 10 books – in 2020 I was able to get my owned TBR to 0 and I want to keep it under 20 books. I will give myself exceptions to this around gift giving holidays and my birthday because I always get books as gifts.


What reading goals do you have for yourself in 2021?

  1. Reading and re-reading Lord of the Rings is a goal for me too. I started reading it for the first time a couple of months ago via audiobook but the format didn’t really work for me so I want to read them physically instead, and the beginning of 2021 is when I want to do that. I also hope to crack down on all the series I have started but not finished. I am terrible at not finishing series (I think I just never want them to end) and it’s getting ridiculous.

  2. Iā€™m trying to cut back a lot on my reading challenges this year or at least do easier ones. My good reads reading goal will be set for 100 books again. I will be sharing a post soon of all the things I hope to do in 2021.

  3. Good luck with your goals!
    I’m about to finish the Liveship Traders trilogy, and I definitely want to read the next (two) Hobb series next year!
