Thoughtful Thursday – My 2021 Goals

Last month I went through what I was able to achieve with my blog in 2020 and now, as it is January, I wanted to outline the goals I have for myself and my blog this year for my first Thoughtful Thursday post! I’m not really one for resolutions, I always start off with good intentions but they never last the full year- I’m lucky if they last past January and some even past 2021!

Goodreads Reading Challenge

Although I managed to read over 100 books in 2020, this is definitely not the norm for me! So, with that in mind, I’m going to set my reading goal at 50 again and hope that last year wasn’t just a fluke!


12 Classics in 12 Months

In addition to my usual reads, each month I want to read a classic or a modern classic. These aren’t necessarily for reviews, but I might do a feature on the classic I read a month if you guys are interested in that. I have an idea of the classics that I want to read but, if you have any suggestions for me I would love to hear them!


Read One Japanese Book

For people that have been following me for the last few months, this might seem like an odd goal considering how much Japanese fiction I read last year. However, what I actually mean by this goal is to pick up Japanese studies again and enough to read a book – whether it be a short story, or more likely, a children’s book.


To Wait Before I Rate

Whilst I was very lucky in 2020 with the amount of great novels that I read, there were a few times where when I reflected a later few days or came to write the review, I felt that the rating I added to GoodReads was no longer accurate. Therefore, this year I’ve decided to wait before adding my rating to GoodReads instead of doing it as soon as I finished the book, as this will be a more accurate reflection of what I thought.


Read More Blog Posts

As things started to pick up towards the end of the year, I found that I was spending less time reading other blogs and reviews so I want to rectify this in 2021! Not only do I want to read more blog posts by the wonderful bloggers that I’m already following, but I want to discover some new ones as well so please send me any recommendations!


Keep Up With Tags Better

I love doing tags and ended up being tagged in quite a few last year, however I struggled to keep up with them as I was still getting settled into a schedule – then by the time I was it felt too late to do it. So next year, I want to stay on top of them much better and take part in them!

What are your goals for 2021? What do you want to focus on? Let me know in the comments!

    1. I find that I’m usually much more enthusiastic about a book as soon as I finish it compared to when I give it a couple of days to think about it, which is odd!

  1. Hi Rosie, what a great set of targets you’ve set for yourself. I love reading a classic once a month and also a Japanese book to help with your studies. I think it’s good that you know where you want to go in terms of your blog and I certainly look forward to following you in this New Year ☺
