In 2020 my Goodreads goals will be the same as it is this year. My goal is the same because I think for me it is a realistic goal even if I surpass it. My reading goal this year was 30 books, which is about 2 books a year. For me that is attainable and achievable. So again I will be putting 30 books into my Goodreads goal.
As with this year and always, I want to focus on and do my best to read diverse books. I love diverse books, so focusing on diverse characters.
I want to focus on protagonists that don’t or haven’t always been heavily focused on. I want to read about racially diverse characters, characters with complicated family structures, histories, and experiences. Characters with diverse sexualities, gender identities, and so on.
I also want to read from diverse authors, including more Canadian authors, translated works, authors of colour, and authors with different background, including #ownvoices works.
Books By My DNA
The last goal is a goal that I kind of let go throughout the year. I want to continue to work on my Books by My DNA series. I have a good handful of countries left to read from, so going forward into 2020 I want to keep on working through them. Here are the remaining countries and books I will be reading for that series.
France – The Little Paris Bookshop
Germany – Book of Clouds
Spain – The Shadow of The Wind
Portugal – The High Mountains of Portugal
Indonesia – The Land of Five Towers
Egypt – Cleoparta’s Moon
