Bookish Item | 2024 Reading Goals Part 1

We’re nearing the end of the year and that means it’s time to start thinking about my reading goals for 2024. I lowered my goals a lot for 2023 after I kept failing the years before. And I plan on not putting to much pressure on myself for the coming year either. Since I just moved and I’m still making long days at work I want to relax with a book and not feel any pressure. That being said, I do have some goals! Let’s take a look!

Goodreads Challenge

Last year I lowered my Goodreads Challenge to 52 books, so 1 per week. And I really liked that goal. It was doable and I liked seeing my progress throughout the year. I want to try and read at least 52 books in 2024, and if it turns out I’ll be able to manage more that just all an added bonus.

Netgalley Feedback Ratio

I’m currently at a 43% feedback ratio, so not that great. While I still want to make my way to 80% I hope to hit 50% in 2024. If I hand in at least 1 review per month for books I already have on my Netgalley shelf and I keep up with new eARC’s this should be doable. This might be one of my most difficult goals but I keep on trying!

Physical TBR

Well, another one of my hard to attain goals haha. I want to at least and the year with less books unread compared to the start of the year. With my move I decided to leave behind some books, I want to properly unhaul those soon which might help for 2023. But for 2024 it will be another challenge. I want to try and not buy too many books, I did buy a lot more in 2023 than I expected haha. This year I also reread a lot, hopefully I can pick up some more new to me books in 2024. It would be nice to read at least 24 books from my physical TBR.

Big Books

This is another returning goal but for once it’s goal that has proven to be doable. I keep picking up pretty big books, so ones with over 500 pages. Audiobooks have really helped me with that and I hope to keep that up. 2023 has been good for this so I hope to at least read 12 big books in 2024 again.

Finish 6 Series

Somehow this keeps being a tough goal to reach! It used to be 12 series but I’ve settled for 6 haha. I seemed to be improving but the second half of the year didn’t really help towards this goal. It would be nice if I managed to finish a series every 2 months. Especially since I have a lot of series with only one book left.

My reading goals for 2024 look a lot like my reading goals for 2023. I have about 2 more weeks to try and reach those 2023 goals and then it’s time to start 2024. Hopefully I can reach most of these goals! I think they could be doable, depending on how the other parts of my life turn out this coming year haha. Have you set any reading goals for 2024 yet? I would love to hear from you!
