Reading Goals 2023

Now that we are a few days into the new year I decided it was a good time to share my reading goals with you all. As you all know I always give myself a large reading to do list. But I like setting challenge. The reading challenge I will join you will find later on in the week in a seperate post.

Goodreads and Storygraph Challenge

Keeping these goals the same as in 2022. I quite enjoyed the way that went and I don’t think I really need to challenge myself to read a certain amount of books. A 100 books has been a certainty for a few years now.

40 Books Before 40

In October I shared this list with you all that I want to read before I turn 40. Which is slightly less than 5 years away. So that means I’d like to read at least 8 books of this list this year. So that is my solid goal for it this year. If I read more that would be awesome too of course but we shall see.

5 Books I Think Will Be 5 Star Reads

Night Watch by Terry Pratchett2002
Year One by Nora Roberts2017
Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao2021
The Burning God by R.F. Kuang2020
The God of Lost Words by AJ Hackwith2021

The past few years I’ve actally managed to complete this goal so I’m keeping it. It is always interesting to see which books will actually be 5 star reads for me. It’s not been a 100% yet.

mini Goals

  1. Catch up to Mercy Thompson series
  2. Finish the City Watch arc of Discworld.
  3. Read at least 3 books of the October Daye series
  4. Catch up to The Invisible Library series
  5. Read Maya and the Dark trilogy
  6. Finish 10 series

These are fairly doable small goals that should fit in with most of the reading challenges I’m doing.

  1. I always just put around 100-120 books for my goal and lower it if I’m not on track by the end of the year! :p I know some people feel stressed by goals and choose 1 book or whatever, but I guess I just go for the approach of not taking the number I pick that seriously.

    1. Same to be honest. I used to really go for the number (and be stressed) but I’m at a point in my life that I don’t think I need that anymore. I’d prefer to challenge myself in other specifics (and even if I don’t make it, so what, at least I thought about it/worked on it).


      1. That’s kinda where I am, too. What I’m reading makes more of a difference to me than how much I’m reading. One of the things I like about setting up the goals, though, is it makes it easier to click through and see which books I read in the year.
