Reading Goals for 2022

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly series hosted by Rukky at Eternity Books and Danie at Literary Lion. The full list of January topics can be found here.

This week’s topic is Reading Goals for 2022.

Last week I did a post on the reading challenges I will be completing this year, though I will primarily be focusing on Beat the Backlist to read books that have been on my to-read list for a while now.

While I do like to keep track of my reading through challenges, I decided that this year I would like to focus more on the quality of what I choose to read rather than the quantity. Various social media outlets make reading into a competition, which I have gotten sucked into one too many times now. It takes the fun out of “reading for fun.”

I would like to be more intentional about the books I read. I have done a solid job of not giving into the hype of certain popular books, and discontinuing my Book of the Month subscription has helped immensely with that.

I want to continue that trend this year but take it a step further; not only choosing to read only the books I want to, but relieving myself of the pressures to post photos and reviews on a weekly basis. If I’m able to do it, I will. If not, it won’t be the end of the world, right? 😉

Do you have any specific bookish resolutions for this year? Tell me in the comments!

  1. Good luck with your goals!
    For this year I want to stop ‘forcing’ myself to read, because I ‘have to’ read a certain amount of books each month. If I feel like playing on my switch for two hours, I should just enjoy myself playing on my switch! And not worry about numbers!
