Bookish Lifestyle | New Year, New Book Goals

Hey there lovely, 

Happy New Year! 

It's a new year so that means it's time to set and share my bookish goals with you all. Last year wasn't a good year for this little blog because it got seriously neglected, books and publishers got let down because I simply didn't have the time to read books due to my heavy schedule of completing my degree, my specialist support teacher qualification and the heavy stress I *was* under at work. I say *was* because until I find a new place of employment I doubt that stress is ever going to fully go away unfortunately. Anyway, let's talk about books goals! 



Last year I didn't read as many books as I wanted to and actually lowered my goal not once but twice! I feel deeply ashamed and saddened that in the entire of 2018 I managed 10 posts on here. 10!!! Like what kind of joke is that?! I have to say that deeply disappointed me the most. But you guys and gals!! You!! Oh my gosh you are simply the best blog readers in the world because despite only published 10 posts - you kept coming back and you read the posts and you helped this blog grow past 32,000!!! I am eternally grateful to you! So what does 2019 have in store? 


Books, Blogs + 2019 Goals! 


  • Read 60 books (documented on Goodreads - A Page of Fictional Love, come over and be my friend!) 
  • Blog at least 1-2 times a week 
  • Have a minimum of 52 posts in this blog by the end of December 2019 
  • Write more Bookish Lifestyle posts on here 
  • Grow the blog to 50,000 (from 32,200 as at 1.1.19)
  • Allow more 2 + 3 star reviews on this blog 
  • Host giveaways bi-monthly 
  • Do regular facebook audio lives where we hang out and chat about books
  • Record Audio reviews of books I've read + post them to my facebook page (A Page of Fictional Love) 
  • Open the blog to guest bloggers to support the book community - not limited to bloggers but READERS of books from all over! 
  • Get back into the good books of publishers (seriously I feel so guilty for my lack of reviewing last year!) 
  • Grow my instagram (A Page of Fictional Love) to 1500+ 

I do have a few more secret goals that I'm working on behind the scenes but I want them to be a surprise for you so I'm not going to share just yet. 

Have you set any book related goals this year? Tell me all about them in the comments below

Talk really soon lovely,
Love Dawn xxx
