JANUARY 7: 2022 READING GOALS
As we enter the new year many of us will be setting goals on Goodreads and choosing new year’s resolutions. What are your goals related to your blog or books/reading in general? Are you going to have resolutions this year, if not why not?
Happy New Year, everyone! And welcome to 2022 and the first LTB of the new year. Appropriately, this first topic will revolve around goals for 2022. I’d love to hear what all your goals are as well, so please let me know down below! Without further ado, let’s get into my goals.
I just set my goodreads again to 50 books. I think I reached about 70 last year (same goal of 50). I guess normally I’d like to try and stretch this year and read more, but considering how busy I know I’ll be, even 50 seems a bit daunting this year. Nevertheless, I will of course try my best to fit it all in!
I don’t particularly have any resolutions, but I do wanna try and work in reading as much as I can to become a habit and less of a chore. It is definitely fun to read but as with anything, trying to fit something into a busy schedule can become a bit tedious. Here’s to hoping it’ll be something natural and completely worked in by the end of the year!
One thing I want to try and do less of is blind choosing of a book just to read. While I have run into some real treasures, I think the majority of my time is more or less wasted on books I found mediocre. With so little time on my hands, I think making a more careful selection will at least leave me more satisfied that I tried to find books worth my time rather than leaving it all up to chance. That isn’t to say that I will never do that, but I definitely want to limit the randomness in my book selection this year. There are so many good books I have yet still to read, there isn’t much of a need to always pick up random things off the shelf.
Here at DTRH we’re definitely going to try and deliver good content for you all, as much as we possibly can. It is fun, and it’s also nice to have a goal and schedule to try and fit into our lives. So please stay tuned for all the future content! And as usual please let us know if there’s anything you’d like to see more of.
One last thing that I’d really like to get into are ARCs. I have rarely ventured into this world, as it is a little bit like taking a stab in the dark as well. But I’d love for our blog to be a great place for ARC reviews as well so that you all can be more informed if you were looking forward to some of the same books! I have gotten my hands on an ARC recently, and I hope to share that all with you soon.
What are your goals for 2022? Anything for your blog or just for reading in general? Anything majorly different from last year? Let me know in the comments below!

These sound like excellent goals! My goal is 97 books as I read that last year but I don’t know if I will reach that. It’s just there as a number really 🤣 In addition to that I really need to start making a dent in my TBR shelves!

Honestly 🤦🏻♀️ it’s because I never made time for reading but loved books and bought them 🤣😂 I have since made time but my head keeps being turned 😂🤣
Good luck! My main goal is to get through as many on my unread pile as I can 🙃
