Hello there! There would be 15 days left before we go into the year 2020 and with a new year and me being a year older, I wanted to have a New Years Reading Resolution whereby I will get 80% rating in my Netgalley.
In 2020, I will have a different approach to reading to tackle my Netgalley and hardcopy TBR. The plan of attack are as follows (some of which I had already talked about in my post “How To Read More”):
- DNF books that do not interest me
- Force myself to read at least either 5 pages a day or a minimum of 30 min a day
- Make reading a priority
- Join a reading group/challenge
As for item number 4, I have decided to do first the 2020 reading challenge done by Novelknight called Beating the Backlist. The reason why I chose this one is because it seems like so much fun! You get to be either a general reader or you get to join teams and whichever teams read the most that team would win AND I WANT TO WIN! 2020 IS EZZA’S YEAR!
Another reading challenge I wanted to try again at is the reading challenge by Modern Mrs Darcy and Popsugar as I feel that books read for the Beating the Backlist challenge can be used for the other reading challenges.
I don’t want to do too much because I tried too many reading challenges and failed miserably. 2020 is the year of REALISTIC goals and of SUCCESS!.
Initially I wanted to join the “TBR Stackers” team but saw that there weren’t enough team members for the “Borrowers” and “Re-reader” and I thought hey I borrow a lot of books from the library why don’t I join the “Borrowers” team instead.
And with that I will share with you my Netgalley TBR as I have yet to update my hardcopy TBR in my Goodreads. So, you can just basically see my “To-Read” shelf on Goodreads, I wanted to do a whole excel list and just paste it here but I am too lazy and yo bitch don’t have time to manually write down 112 books.
But, I will also put a new page on my site so you can see my TBR shelf on Goodreads, my updates and everything. My TBR shelf on Goodreads is mainly for the Beating The Backlist challenge so books I am currently reading or plan to read and finish this year I will not put it there.
I regret going absolutely ham when I first got my Netgalley, I was too optimistic and overconfident in my reading prowess because did you see the list??? Who has 112 books TBR in their Netgalley, this is why I felt the “TBR stackers” team was more me because WHAT THE FUCK????? WHAT I HAVE DONE?????? WHY????? 112???? WHO REQUESTS THAT MUCH BOOKS????!!!!!!
Okay! I hope 2020 will be a good reading year. Wish me luck!
Share with me what is your reading goals or resolution for 2020 and what challenges will you be partaking in.
