What Are Your New Years Resolutions?

This year, my New Years Resolutions are all about blogging. Did you know that the nearly half of people give up their goals after just one month? I’m not the most organized person, but hopefully I’ll be able to commit to these goals until at least March!

This is a post is to celebrate the new year. But I can’t do that without reflecting on last year – and my Goodreads Reading Challenge 2022. All I really can give you is the number, so I’m proud to announce I read…


books read last year! I’m proud of it, and managed to try some pretty incredible reads. You can find my Top 22 Books of 2022 here.

As for last year’s resolutions, I managed to complete all of my goals. My biggest achievement is reading some incredible ARCs (check out my favourite No Good For Maidens here ) and reaching 500 followers. I couldn’t have done it without you, so thank you so much. To every person who reads my posts, to every comment and to every blogger and reader out there, I wish you all a wonderful 2023.

Which leads me into my last point. Part of why I love reading is because I get so much out of it. It’s a full immersive experience… but only because you put so much into it too. Reading can be pretty draining. Trying to remember all the characters, the plot, on top of made up countries and magical systems? It takes a lot of effort.

But most of the time, it’s worth it. So this year, I think I’d like to focus on enjoying and putting effort into reading – it might mean that I read fewer books, but hopefully instead of rushing through books to tick them off a list, I’ll have a better experience reading. I’ll properly understand the books. What do you think? Let me know in the comments.

New Years Resolutions for 2023

1. Read 52 books. Every year my target number goes down, are you the same? But I think a book a week will certainly challenge me!

2. Continue to support Own Voices and Indie publishers. Especially foreign books – I’d love to try a translated work as well. What’s your favorite translated book?

3. Reach 700 followers on this blog. Can you help me reach this target? Every like, subscribe and comment is very much appreciated.

I’m a teenager (and a Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore and books. Pretty much any book I can get my hands on but my favourites are Young Adult, fantasy and science fiction. One day, I decided to share some of my opinions on some great - and not so great - books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it and I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of book reviews (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.

  1. Good luck with you resolutions, I’m sure you’ll manage to read all the books you want. 🙂 I definitely agre with supporting more own voices and indie authors. There’s so many good books out there, they just haven’t ben recognised by many people yet. 🙂


      1. Apart from a Goodreads challenge to fulfill I really want to get to books I got last year but just never read. I made all these new years reading resolutions on my blog last year too and didn’t meet any of them 🙈lol so would be good if I can achieve some of those goals and reads this year too☺️
