How to Stick to Your Reading Goals in 2024

by | Jan 20, 2024 | Lifestyle | 2 comments

As we roll into another year, it’s time to channel our inner literary goddesses and set some reading goals for 2024. Whether you’re a twenty-something navigating the whirlwind of life or just want to add a touch more bookish flair to your routine, we’ve got your back. So, grab your favorite cozy blanket, a cup of something delicious, and let’s dive into how you can set (and totally crush) your reading goals this year.

How to Stick to Your Reading Goals

Reflect on Your Reading Vibes

Picture this: you, your favorite reading nook, and a stack of books that make your heart flutter. To set the perfect reading goal, take a moment to reflect on your reading vibes. What genres light up your world? How much time can you realistically dedicate to reading between work , social events, and the occasional Netflix binge? Understanding your reading rhythm will help you set goals that align with your lifestyle and passions.

Set a Goal That’s as Cool as You Are

Sure, we all dream of being bookish superheroes, but let’s keep it real. Set a goal that challenges you without morphing into Mission Impossible. Whether it’s a number of books, pages, or chapters, make it something that excites you. Being a bookish badass is all about balance, after all. Remember, it’s not about the quantity; it’s about the quality of the reading experience.

Mix It Up, Girl!

Variety is the spice of life, and the same goes for your reading list. Spice up your literary life by adding a mix of genres, authors, and voices. Ever tried a graphic novel? How about a memoir that’s basically your life but in print? Diversifying your reading list keeps things interesting. Plus, it broadens your perspective and introduces you to stories you might not have considered.

Break It Down (No, Not Like a Bad Dance Move)

Let’s avoid that overwhelmed feeling by breaking your goal into bite-sized pieces. Monthly book challenges? A reading list for each season? Now we’re talking! Smaller milestones make your goal feel less like a mountain to climb and more like a series of fabulous, achievable victories. Celebrate those victories like the bookish champion you are.

Make Reading Time Your Self-Care Oasis

Life gets hectic, and adulting is no joke. But amidst the chaos, find your reading oasis. Whether it’s during your morning latte, lunch break, or right before hitting the pillow, make reading time your self-care moment. Trust us, nothing beats escaping into a good book after a long day of adulting. It’s a form of self-love that rejuvenates your mind and soul.

Share the Bookish Love

Being a twenty-something bookworm is way more fun when you’ve got a crew to dish about your latest reads with. Join a book club, follow bookstagram accounts, or simply text your besties about the epic plot twist you just encountered. Sharing the bookish love keeps you inspired, opens up a world of perspectives, and can lead to some amazing book recommendations.

Audiobooks and E-books: Because Adulting

Let’s face it, adulting can be a time-sucking vortex. Embrace the audiobook and e-book life for those moments when sitting down with a physical book feels as likely as finding a unicorn in your backyard. Audiobooks while jogging? E-books during laundry day? Consider your reading game upgraded. It’s about adapting to your lifestyle and making reading seamlessly fit into your busy schedule.

This is your year to crush those reading goals and revel in the magic of storytelling. Reflect on your vibes, set a goal that’s as cool as you are, mix up your reading list, break it down, make reading your self-care oasis, share the bookish love, and embrace audiobooks and e-books like the modern goddess you are. Happy reading, and may your TBR pile be ever in your favor!

    I felt this post in my bones. 2022 and 2023 have been terrible reading year so I decided to start 2024 with a 100 book challenge and so far it’s going well. I’m at my 9 read books and on the verge of finishing number 10. I learn, for me, that sometimes silly cozy mysteries are the best thing that can drag me out of a slump. Same thing happened recently, when a heavy sci-fi book I started was just… leaving my attention? I started a new mystery as a break
    And from next February I’m definitely tryin to join a local bookclub here in my city. I need to make new friends after al!
    And another yes for audiobooks! Not only I found a surprising amount of free books in the cozy mysteyr section, but I noticed how easily and faster I read

      Yes! If a book is just not capturing your attention, leave it. There’s no harm in that. I used to read tons of books a year and for the last 2 years I’ve read a significantly smaller amount than I used to because I kept thinking I should finish the book I was reading even if I didn’t like it and that led me to spot wanting to read all together. I’ve been trying to get back on track this year though. Let’s see how it goes.
