2021 Goals Check In

Let’s see how my goals for 2021 are going.

  • Read 3 SciFi books or more; – 0/3 Not going well! I haven’t been in a SciFi mood in a long time. I want to read Starsight in 2021 though and I’m curious about some of Becky Chambers’ books. So, I hope I’ll eventually pick some SciFi books up.

  • Read 5 nonfiction books or more; – 5/5 COMPLETED! Can’t believe I’ve already read 5 nonfiction books in 2021. Especially considering I only read 2 nonfiction books in 2020. Who am I?

  • Read 3 nonfiction books about  systemic racism, racial justice and anti-racism or more; – 1/3. I have multiple books I want to read: Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You; How to Be an AntiracistWhy Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? and a few others.

  • Read at least 3 graphic novels or comic books; – 3/3. COMPLETED! I read 2 graphic novels during 48h Becca’s Bookoplathon and I recently finished reading A Game of Thrones graphic novel. I hope I’ll read more during 2021. I just ordered Paper Girls Vol. 1 and I can’t wait to pick the next Fence volumes.

  • Read at least 10 Mystery or Thriller or Horror books; – 6/10. Surprised to see I read 6, honestly. I’m happy about it! I thought this one wasn’t going well. I really enjoyed Home Before Dark; The Turn of The Key and The Night Swim.

  • Read the first 3 books in The Wheel of Time series; – 3/3. COMPLETED! I though I would go slowly with this series. I was wrong! I’ve been reading one book and taking a month break before moving on to the next one. I’ve read The Dragon Reborn, the third book in this series, this month. I’ll probably read the fourth one soon too, maybe in July. I’m really enjoying it and I’m very excited for the show that should be releasing later this year on Amazon. It’s a 14 book series, so my journey will take a while.

  • Read The Folk of The Air trilogy; – 3/3. COMPLETED! I finished this trilogy in March. I went into it with low expectations and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. The second book, The Wicked King, was definitely my favorite.

  • Read The Broken Earth trilogy; – 0/3. I’m still struggling with the second POV in The Fifth Season, so I’ve put it down for a while. I’ve requested the audiobook on Libby and I hope it’ll help me to get into it. I’m very intrigued by the world, so that’s good.

  • Read The Dark Artifices trilogy; – 1/3. I’ve only read the first one in the trilogy. I’ll probably pick up Lord of Shadows in July or August, I’m still irritated by Lady Midnight‘s ending (Rant: Emma was DUMB and I hated what she did! – End of Rant).

  • Finish The Brown Sisters trilogy (read 1, so 2 books); – 0/2. I still haven’t ordered the books. I hope I’ll manage to read both during the Summer.

  • Participate in 3 readathons; – 2/3. I participated in 48h Becca’s Bookoplathon and in May The Force Read With You readathon. Both of them were fun! Crossing my fingers to another Summerween readathon in August!

  • Complete Goodreads Reading Challenge for 2021: 60 books. – 60/60 I’ve reached the goal. So, I decided to redefine it to 80 books. So, it’s now: 65/80.

I think the overall picture is okay. 4/12 of my goals are completed and 3 out of the remaining 8 are 50% done. I can still achieve all of these goals until the end of the year. I haven’t had much time these last few months between work and college but I’ve been reading so that’s good. I’m seriously struggling with the SciFi goal though… We’ll see what happens.

How are your 2021 goals going?
