I have tagged myself after reading The Shaggy Shepherd’s answers. It’s only a quick little tag of 6 questions/prompts but it will be interesting to revisit come the end of the year to see how things panned out!
How many books are you planning on reading in 2023?
40. This is slightly out of sequence for me as I’ve been adding 6 each year since 2017 and last year’s aim was 36 so I’ve only added 4 this time. I think I’m getting close to a reasonable and repeatable number that I can stick with year-on-year. If I surpass 40, I may bump it to 52 but we’ll see what the year brings.
Name 5 books you didn’t get to read in 2021 but want to make a priority in 2023.
- Caliban’s War
- The Hunger of the Gods
- The Garden of Empire
- The Bone Shard Emperor
- The Spear Cuts Through Water
Name a genre you want to read more of in 2023
Sci-fi. I already read some but not as much as Fantasy at the moment. Then again, I do just want to read MORE FANTASY.
Three non-book related goals in 2023.
- Lose weight
- Build confidence
- Have fun
What’s a book you’ve had forever that you still need to read?
- I Am A Cat by Natsume Sōseki
This was a gift a long time ago that I really need to get around to. It’s been on my Goodreads since 2014 but I believe I’ve had it longer than that.
One word that you hope 2023 will be?
