by Joanna Hart January 05, 2024

It's a brand new year and book lovers love setting ambitious reading goals. Unfortunately, sometimes life gets in the way and they fall short but fear not! In this blog post, we'll explore 8 practical tips to help you not only set but also achieve your New Year's reading resolutions. Let's turn those bookish aspirations into a reality.

Set Realistic Goals 

Begin by setting achievable reading goals. Consider factors such as your schedule, reading speed, and other commitments. Establish a goal that challenges you without overwhelming your daily life.

Try Out Different Sub-Genres or Tropes 

Spice up your reading list with a variety of sub-genres, authors, and tropes. A diverse selection will keep your interest piqued, preventing burnout from monotony. Explore new stories and discover hidden gems.

Establish a Reading Routine

Consistency is key. Dedicate specific times of the day to reading, whether it's during your morning coffee, lunch break, or before bedtime. Establishing a routine helps make reading a habit rather than a sporadic activity.

Use Reading Apps and Trackers

Leverage technology to your advantage. Numerous reading apps and trackers can help you monitor your progress, set reminders, and recommend new books based on your preferences. Apps like Goodreads or Bookly can be your reading companions.

Make Reading Part of Your Self-Care Routine

Maintaining mental and physical well-being is crucial. Incorporate reading into your self-care routine, ensuring it becomes a source of relaxation. There's nothing like getting lost in the pages of book to melt away stress.

Celebrate Milestones 

Celebrate your reading achievements, whether big or small. Reward yourself when you reach a significant milestone or complete a book. Positive reinforcement can enhance your motivation to continue.
