I was looking for a fun book tag to start my blog off with and I came across the New Year’s Book Tag which was originally created by Heather @Bookables back in 2018. I thought it be fun to do it for 2021. So without further ado, here we go….

1. How many books are you planning to read in 2021?

My Goodreads goal for 2021 is 75 books. Last year for 2020, I read 60 books when my original goal was 50 so I’m hopeful that I can accomplish my 2021 goal too!

2. Name 5 books that you didn’t get to last year but want to make a priority in 2021

There are a bunch of books that I did not get to in 2020 that I wanted to but for this tag I will talk about feeling gulty about not getting to the newer books from my favorite authors. Don’t ask me why I keep putting these ones off when I know that I usually love the authors work and will likely not be disappointed I’m still afraid though and in 2021, I need to just put that fear behind me and read these books:

Recipe for a Perfect Wife by Karma Brown
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
The Map From Here to There by Emery Lord
Black Dove White Raven by Elizabeth Wein
Better Than the Best Plans by Lauren Morrill

3. What genre do you want to read more of?

For 2021, I would like to read more historical fiction. This used to be one of my favorite genres and I just haven’t been reading very much it recently. Same with fantasy. So if you have any good book suggestions that I should check out, please send them my way!

4. Name 3 non book related goals for 2021:

-Watch one television series a month. There are SO many TV shows that I have either been wanting to watch for the first time or re-watch & I’m determined this year I will actually make this happen.

-Reconnect with friends and family. 2020 was rough for me in many different ways and it caused me to kind of become more reclusive and not connect with all the people in my life that bring me joy. I’m hoping in 2021 that I will be able to change that. Oh, and also actually see people again once COVID is better under control.

-Be happy. Honestly for me this is a goal for me to just enjoy my life, and stop sweating the small things. Like I said 2020 was a rough year and I need to just let it all go and focus on remembering that in the end everything will work out exactly like it is supposed to.

5. What’s a book you’ve had forever that you still need to read?

I feel like this is almost a trick question because this could be half of my bookshelf. According to Goodreads, this would be The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks which has been on my to-read shelf in 2009. I guess I’d better to get that one?

6. One word that your hoping 2021 will be:

7. Tag a friend!

I’m going to have to go with Moose (In The Madhouse) so that she can experience the joy of this tag. You are more than welcome to do it as well. If you do, send me your link so that I can check it out.
