Six for Sunday is weekly prompt hosted by Steph at A Little But A Lot where we are encouraged to give our opinions on a certain topic or a book-related theme.
It’s January 2021 which means it’s time for another month of Six For Sunday prompts. This month’s topic is ‘it’s all about books’ and this week’s prompt is ‘2021 bookish resolutions’.
I like to set myself a few bookish goals at the start of each new year as I feel that it keeps my motivated and determined. I do tend to reach a few of them by the end of the year, so that’s always good.
Are you setting any bookish goals?
1. Read 52 Books
I have set myself a goal to read 52 books in 2021. I usually set my reading goal a bit higher, but because I have realised that 2021 is going to be quite a busy year I’ve decided to set it to 52. That means reading one book a week, which I think is doable.
2. Read More Fantasy (YA & Adult)
I don’t read much fantasy and I really want to change that in 2021. There’s so many YA and Adult fantasies out there for me to discover, and I want to read at least a few a month.
3. Read More Adult Fiction
I do primarily read middle grade and young adult, and despite loving those genres I do feel like I need to branch out and read some adult fiction too. I’ve started compiling a list of adult books I’d love to read in 2021, so I’m hoping I can get to some of them.
4. Blog At Least Twice A Week
In the last few months of 2020 my blogging schedule was a bit sporadic. This was mainly due to starting a new full time job and not having time. In 2021 I want to try and posts up at least twice a week, by writing them at the weekend when I have more time.
5. Use the CAWPILE Rating System
At the end of 2020 I discovered the CAWPILE Rating System. This rating system was created by G at Book Roast and is a system where you rate the book you have via seven components – Character, Atmosphere, Writing, Plot, Intrigue, Logic & Enjoyment. I’ve really enjoyed using it for the past month as it’s helped me to rate my current reads more accurately, so am going to be using it in 2021. Here is the video for anyone wanting to know more about it.
6. DNF Books If I’m Not Enjoying Them
If I’m not enjoying a book, I always feel guilty if I DNF it, as I can only imagine how much time the author and publisher have spent on that book. However, I have decided that life is too short to carry on reading a book that I’m just not getting on with, so I’m going to be DNFing any books that I am not enjoying in 2021 and I won’t feel bad about it.
