february goals

Posted January 31, 2020 by cottoncandybookwitch in goals / 3 Comments

I actually wrote this post super early (read: a little over a week ago) because I just really want January to be over. As you will have read in my wrap up post, it was a bit of a rough ride at the end due to another apartment disaster. So I wrote this post early in the hopes that it would make the last week of January go by fast.


january goals

  • Read 5 children’s books.       !!         Oh man, did I KILL this goal. I read almost three times as many children’s books as planned, including a million picture books, one easy reader, and a middle grade book.
  • Read 3/5 of my BOTM books.        !!       I’m counting this as done even though I ended up DNFing two out of the four I tried to read. I ended up finishing SONG OF THE CRIMSON FLOWER before the new year started, but I’m still counting that as part of this month’s goal. I also read RED, WHITE, AND ROYAL BLUE which I ended up loving. I DNFed THE FAMILY UPSTAIRS because it was very upsetting, and ended up not being interested in GET A LIFE, CHLOE BROWN. But now there’s only one Book of the Month book I’ve gotten that I haven’t read or tried to read (LITTLE WOMEN), so I can now safely get books from BOTM in February.
  • Work up to getting 8,000 steps a day.            !!              I did this! Yay!
  • Add one new item to my grocery list every week.         !!             I did this!

  • Read more than 3 books. For some reason, my reading always PLUMMETS in February pretty much every year. I think last year I only read 3 books, and the year before I know I only read 2. So, this year I want to beat the February slump, which I’m hopeful I can do because I’m participating in Swiftathon until February 13.
  • Read 2 books for Here & Queerathon. I know it’s only been a month, but I already feel like I’m kinda slacking on my own readathon, which you can sign up for here. I feel like I should be rolling in queer books and I’ve read one and pretty much a half (I wasn’t sure if VERY NICE really counted because the lesbian character did have her own chapters but was def a side character). So I feel like I need to STEP IT UP.
  • Experiment with/learn more about booktube and bookstagram. In my blogging section of my wrap up, I wrote about feeling a little lost and unsure of my place in bookish influencing. I have been interested in experimenting with booktube and bookstagram, but don’t know much about doing either at this point. So I want to see if either of those might be something I’m interested in doing.


Tell me all about your February goals in the comments!

  1. Congrats on rocking your January goals!! 😀 I’m lucky if I finish two books a month since I’m a slow reader haha! This past month though I was able to beat my record and read 4 books. In February, I’m hoping to keep the momentum going. Sending you good vibes for February!!

      and wow, that’s great you were able to beat your record! I hope February is an equally good reading month for you <3

  2. Congrats on crushing January – I hope February is going well! I’m hoping to get through a few literary journals and we went to see two new UK cities so that was really exciting! 😀
