Leta’s Book Lists: New Year’s Goals: Reading

I think everyone has a lot of expectations for 2022. We’re all hoping and striving for something new and better than these last two years. But rarely do things change from one day to the next. It takes time to build new habits and make those expectations manageable. Between this post and another one that will go up in two weeks, I’ll be going over the expectations I have for myself in 2022. I’ll use these posts to keep myself on track and accountable to the goals that I’m setting for myself. I don’t think I’ve given myself more than I can handle in a year. But I know that in 2020 and 2021, I didn’t give my all to my projects and goals. I could have achieved more. These goals are based on that fact.

My first goal is to read 125 books. As always, there is no minimum or maximum length for these books. In order to reach this number, I’m giving myself a number of sub goals for specific books to read. These sub goals include rereading the Throne of Glass series (eight books), the Chronicles of Narnia (seven books), and finishing the Ember in the Ashes series (four books).

Because my boyfriend is also a reader and he has different favourites than me, I want to read some of his favourites this year. The two series I’ll be starting (and hopefully finishing) include the Malazan series by Steven Erikson and The Chronicles of Drizzt by R.A. Salvatore. Both of these are epic series that require a lot of time to get through the large number of books.

I’m also going to be reading the Witcher novels this year after watching the second season of the Netflix show and my boyfriend and I playing the video games. I have physical copies of The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny that I’ve gifted to my boyfriend over the last couple years. I also bought another one through Kobo during their most recent sale. I’m excited to see how the lore differs from the show and the games.

Those are the reading goals I have for 2022. I’ve also thought about tools to help me realize these goals and knew that one specifically will do that. I ordered a new Kobo a couple weeks ago, the Kobo Libra 2. I’m so excited. As I’m writing this, it’s almost here. It’ll be here so soon. I can’t express how much I want it to just get here already. I’ve already gone on the Kobo store during the previously mentioned sales and bought a few books for me to start with once I get it set up.

What are your reading goals for 2022? How are you setting yourself for success in your goals?
