My 2021 Reading And Blogging Goals

Good morning, Reader. Is it late for me to wish you a happy new year? Yes? No? Anyway, happy new year! I hope the start of the year was a good one for you and that you’re staying safe and being gentle with yourself.

As usual my first post of the year is my reading and blogging intentions. I have 8 of the former and 4 of the latter so let’s get into it.

Reading Goals

  • Read my shelf. I have about 48 books on both my physical and kindle tbr and in as much as I’ll get new books, my main focus will be to read the ones I already own.
  • Read 50 books. This is actually my goodreads challenge. I read 177 books in 2020 and this year I wanted to take it easy and half my challenge. (last year my goal was 100)
  • Read more Kenyan Literature, essays and poetry.
  • Explore new authors. On this list I have Daphné Du Maurier, Anthony Trollope, Jeniffer N. Makumbi, Elif Shafak, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Khaled Hosseini.

  • Stick to my reading challenges. I have about 5 reading challenges I’m doing this year and I hope to complete. (I’ll have a post on this in a few days so look out for that.)
  • Read out of my comfort zone. I want to try and read high fantasy and probably a book or two from the horror genre.
  • Be conscious about the books I buy. I don’t have a book buying problem but I want to make an effort to actually buy books that I know I’ll read instead of having them sit on my shelf.
  • Have fun with reading. That’s it.

Blogging Goals

  • Get to my back list titles reviews. I have read some pretty amazing books that most happen to have been published way back and I want to share them with you, Reader.
  • Review (more) classics. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter then you know I read a lot of classics but for some reason I hardly have any of them reviewed on here. So that will change this year.
  • Have a proper, workable blogging schedule and actually stick to it.
  • Have fun with my blog and content.

So that’s it for my 2021 Goals. I wanted to keep them short and simple and I’m hopeful I’ll be able to achieve them.

Do you have any reading and/or blogging goals? Do let me know in the comments.

  1. For the horror genre, try The Outsider by Stephen King. Wishing you well with all your 2021 goals and may you achieve them
