I told myself that I wasn’t going to set any serious reading goals in 2023 because I never stick to them. I know we are only two weeks into the year, but I think I have a system that is helping me to be more organized, so I am hoping I will remember I made these goals in the first place.
Read the Books on My TBR Cart
I put together a TBR cart of the books that I want to get to in 2023. These are books that have been on my TBR for a while and I am hoping that putting the cart in front of my bookshelf will force me to pick them up. I can already feel myself avoiding these books, which is so silly!
Read More Translated Fiction
I just shared all of the translated fiction that is on my TBR, so I would love to make a dent in that list this year. There really is something about translated fiction that appeals to me!
Participate in More Readathons
I used to sign up for readathons and then lose the motivation to participate rather quickly. That seemed to change near the end of 2022 when I join two readathons that I really committed to. There are a lot of readathons happening this year and I would love to participate in them. They are a great way to meet more people in the bookish community!
Catch Up on More Series
This is a goal of mine every year and I always fail at it! I will say that I started and caught up on two series already this year, so I think the key is to embrace marathoning an entire series when I can.
Stay on Top of My Fairyloot Editions
I am buddy reading the Adult Fairyloot editions with a couple of friends throughout the year, so I think that will help me to not fall behind on those. However, I also get the YA editions and I really don’t want those to pile up either.
Discover More of What I Love in Fantasy and Horror
I think I have come to understand my reading taste over the last few years, but fantasy and horror are two genres that I absolutely adore but are so broad and I still don’t quite know what works for me within the genres and what doesn’t. I hope to experiment with them to help me figure it out!

I wish you luck with all of these, I think they’re completely doable!
These are all great goals! I am hoping to do more readathons as well.
There are so many out there that it can be overwhelming!
Love it! I always want to participate in a readathon but I either forget or I end up being busy. So I’m really hoping to participate in at LEAST one this year.
That’s what usually happens to me!!
If you are looking for Horror, I recommend Grady Hendrix. He’s so very good.
I love Grady Hendrix! My Best Friend’s Exorcism is one of my favourite horror novels. His new book came out today and it’s taking everything in me not to drop everything and read it!
I know. I’m doing a book review and have an appointment this afternoon and have to read a novella by Stephen King for book club this Friday. I should have planned better.
That book was like candy. I ate it up. We’ve read 3 of his books for book club. I’ve already submitted this one. Hoping it gets chosen soon.
I love the idea of making a tbr cart! These are some great goals 🙂
I got the cart at Michaels and they are often on sale! Definitely a game changer!
Good luck with your goals! You can do it ❤️
Thank you!! 💪
Good luck with your goals! I also want to catch up on series and read them together because I always forget what’s happened if I wait too long!
Exactly!! Happens to me every time.
Good luck with your goals, Kristin!! Your Fairyloot editions are gorgeous, and I love your cart!
Best of luck with your goals! I also want to read more translated fiction this year, and (as always) to catch up with / complete more series.

Thank you!! Same to you! I hope we both get to a lot of translated fiction.
These are some great goals, good luck with them 💜
These are such amazing goals and hope you are able to accomplish all of them!
I absolutely adore that fairyloot shelf! It’s stunning 🤩
Great goals, and I love your library cart! I bought a cart for myself this past year, but I’ve been using it rather randomly. I like the idea of dedicating it to TBR books — if I can find time to do some organizing, I’ll have to give it a try!
I’m also hoping to get a book cart together this year! Good luck w all your goals!!
