It has become an annual tradition for me to do this tag! It is the perfect way to look back on the year. Happy New Year everyone!
1. How many books are you planning to read in 2023?
As always, I am setting my Goodreads goal to 52 books, so one book a week. I feel like that is low pressure for me and I never want reading to feel like a competition.
2. Name 5 books that you didn’t get to this past year but want to make a priority in 2023.
I wrote a post where I shared all of the books I put on my TBR cart for 2023, but these are five books I really wanted to get to in 2022 but just didn’t! I am hoping to make Before the Coffee Gets Cold my first read of 2023. The vibe of that book just seems perfect!
A Witch in Time was one of my books for the 12 Challenge in 2022 and I failed miserably at that but this is still a book I am very much interested in reading.
I think that Seven Days in June has the potential to become my favourite romance!
I love a good Pride and Prejudice retelling and The Other Bennet Sister has been recommended to me many times.
The Inheritance Games gets a lot of hype and I want to see what I think!
3. What genre do you want to read more of?
2022 was the year that I discovered cozy fantasy and I want to read more of it in 2023, but I also want to embrace my love for historical fiction. My top two books of 2022 were historical fiction, so it is obviously a genre that works for me but is one that I don’t read as much as I should!
4. Name 3 not-related-to-book goals for 2023.
+ Be more adventurous in terms of video editing
+ Be a better plant owner
+ Connect with more people within the book community
5. What’s a book you have had forever and are determined to read?
I have had The Starless Sea since it came out and it has been haunting me ever since! I actually think this is something I will appreciate, I just know it is one I have to be in the mood for. I didn’t put it on my TBR cart this year because it has been there the last few years and I just avoid it. I am hoping the mood will strike me one day and I will read it on a whim.

This is wonderful! I managed to do a terrible job of tracking my books (again) this year. This tag would be a perfect way to let go of 2022 and look forward to 2023.
This is a hard one for me because I read Kindle. I’m going to have to think this one over.
I do hope that 2023 brings you joy!
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND I HOPE ITS A GREAT ONE!!!!!!
I love this (AND BASICALLY JUST EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOUR POSTS SO SO MUCH)
Also your answers were so much fun to read!!!! Before the coffee gets cold DOES seem like the perfect new year read now that you mention it I CANT WAIT FOR ALL YOUR THOUGHTS!!!!
Great tag! Happy New Year, Kristin 😊 The Inheritance Games is a fun series so I hope you get to that. Being a better plant owner is something I’d like to get better at too 😅
Happy New Year, Stephen! I am so ready for some fun books in 2023!
My poor plants 😂
happy new year! I need to get around to reading the 2nd and 3rd book in The Inheritance Games series. My resolutions are to read more and to get back into blogging.
Happy New Year!! Awesome resolutions! I hope you end up loving the rest of that series!
Happy New Year, Kristin! 🎉 I hope you have a great 2023! 😊
Thank you, Meghan! Happy New Year!! 🎉
I hope the new year brings you lots of joy!
Happy Bookish New YEAR!
Great tag and happy new year 🎊🎊
I also bought The Starless Sea when it first came out and have also yet to actually read it maybe 2023 will be the year for both of us 💕
Hope you are successful in your goals. “The Starless Sea” is worth the read. 🙂 Happy New Year!
Happy New Year and happy reading! These sound like some great goals. Cozy fantasy is really a great pick! I want to read more of it, too.
what nice goals, my biggest is to connect more with the community too! I want to prioritize a lot of backlist books this year also <3
