2020 Reading Challenges

It’s going to be a big year for change with a new human and a new place to update.

GoodReads Goal

I’m setting it to 52 books. There will be a lot of children’s books because I plan on reading to little man a lot but I’m hoping to knock out some adult books as well.

I’ll probably devote more time to ebooks (one-handed) and YA since those go by quickly. I might dabble in romance since that’s been getting a resurgence.

Casual Challenges

The casual challenges I’ll be participating in this year:

If I finish any of them? Great! If I don’t, no big deal. There is some overlap between some challenges and my own goals so that’s helpful.

Personal 20

Since it’s 2020, my personal challenge will be to check off a book from each of the following categories:

  • Author is a person of color
  • Author is LGBT+
  • Author is a woman
  • Celebrity memoir
  • Children’s book
  • Christmas
  • Collecting dust
  • Cover
  • Fiction
  • Graphic novel
  • Halloween
  • Library book
  • Motherhood/parenting
  • Movie or TV show
  • Mythology or fairytale
  • Nonfiction
  • Part of a series
  • Reread
  • Star Wars
  • YA

I’ve enjoyed doing a deeper dive into the new Star Wars EU via the books and would like to do more of that. Dust is a book I’ve had a long time and cover is what you think.

According to the Freakonomics documentary, being the kind of parent who buys parenting books means you’ll probably do OK. Imagine how good I could be if I read them!

2020 Shortlist?

I’m considering creating a shortlist of 20 books I want to get to in 2020. The list isn’t yet done and I’m not sure how good of an idea this really is. I may scrap it. We’ll see.
