Top 10 Tuesday | Bookish Goals for 2023

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish which has now found a lovely new home at That Artsy Reader Girl. The prompt this week is to share our Bookish Goals for 2023. I’m not sure I have 10 of these to share but I’ll share the ones I have in mind!

Bookish Goals for 2023

At the end/beginning of every year I do always tell myself that by setting some goals I’ll be able to get back to where I used to with my reading. I used to blog 5-6 times a week and read 100+ books a year. I probably haven’t done either of those things for about 3 years now. Partly due to the pandemic, partly due to my life changing (in the best way!). But I do really want to get back into reading, journaling and blogging this year so I have set myself some goals.

  1. Read 40 books.
    • I’ve made this my lowest goal in years because there is something about it which feels achievable (she says whilst in January).
  2. Read 15,000 pages.
    • Again, a fairly low target (in comparison to the past) but one that I’ll feel good about achieving and possibly surpassing.
  3. Keep ahead of 2023 NetGalley books.
    • I have a backlog, sure, but I figure if I can keep on top of 2023 releases that I’m granted access to then that will be a good start. So far this is going to plan!
  4. Read 3 new series.
    • I don’t mean new as in brand new releases but 3 series that are new to me. I have a few trilogies on my shelves that I haven’t read yet and even more on my Kindle. If I can read 3 of them this year I’ll be happy.
  5. Reduce my TBR.
    • Both physical and ebook TBRs are huge and so I plan to make sure I read at least one or two backlist titles per month.

So there are 5 bookish goals I have for this year. Alongside this I’d like to blog 1-2 times per week and keep up to date with arc reviews on my blog too.


What are your bookish goals for 2023? Do we have any in common? I’d love to hear from you in the comments!

  1. Those are some good goals! I don’t have any hard reading goals this year, I’m just trying to review every book.

    I set my goodreads goal at 56 just to stop it from bothering me, but I’m fine not reading that many books. I’ve read 16 in January so I should be fine if I keep going at that pace.
