January 3rd: What are your blogging/reading goals for the new year?
I’ve decided to participate in the same four reading challenges in 2023 as I did in 2022: Goodreads challenge, Audiobook Challenge, #TBRChallenge, and Romance Reading Challenge.
Goodreads Challenge is an overall number of books read in one year. Any format, any genre. My goal for 2023 is 105 books. This is 5 books more than my goal for 2022; however I did finish 118 books last year, the most in a while.
Audiobook Challenge is any genre but must be audiobook format. I co-host this challenge with Kimberly at Caffeinated Reviewer. My goal for 2023 is 65 audiobooks which is 5 more than my goal in 2022 and equivalent to the number of audiobooks I finished last year.
#TBRChallenge is hosted by Wendy the Super Librarian. This is a monthly, theme-optional challenge to read one book from your TBR pile, any format, any genre. My goal is to read 10 TBR books for this challenge.
Romance Reading Challenge is a fun, bingo-style reading challenge for books in the romance genre. I co-host this one with Linda and Carole. My goal for 2023 is to cover all 25 spaces – one more than I finished in 2022.
My review team is shrinking. I’m sad to say goodbye to Jennifer who has been reviewing at That’s What I’m Talking About for the past 4 years after she closed shop on her own blog. I will miss Jennifer’s input and reviews, and I hope to convince her to guest review from time to time. The rest of my review team: Ang, B., and Nima, are still around and reviewing about six books each over the course of the year. I am going to work hard to make sure I have content on the blog every Monday through Friday, along with Sunday Snippets each Sunday, but with a smaller team, it will be a challenge.
I also plan to continue co-hosting Tell Me Something Tuesday and #FitReaders each week.
My goal is to visit other blogs at least once per week, with the intent to hit them three times per week. I’ve gotten off track at the end of 2022 due to my daughter’s surgery.
