New Year. New goals. It’s become habit, a tradition for all, to create new goals at the start of a new year. This year more than years past, we’re all a little hopeful for what’s to come. We’re hoping against hope that 2021, will be a vast improvement on 2020. I do love making lists of things I hope to accomplish for the upcoming year, sometimes the list goes out the water in the second week, but sometimes I look back in December and see I somehow accomplished part of my goals- even if not directly.
This year though beyond my personal writing goals, which I’ll address later this week. I wanted to make a list of reading goals. I’m going to be realistic with it though because I’ll also be working on my second degree and working as a part time substitute teacher. So, I know I want to read new books, new genres, but I also want to reread old favorites. With those thoughts in mind I’ve created a generic list that’s not just for me, but you as well! If you’re looking for a reading challenge, books goals for 2021, then feel free to try this challenge with me! There is a challenge for adults and for kids!

*The adult version is a generic list of genres and topics for each month, whereas the kid’s version includes specific picture books, early readers, and a series option each month! These are a grouping of books I’ve read and ones I found recommended, and I hope you all have an amazing reading adventure this new year!
