Bookish Goals for 2024

I love the start of a new reading year. Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Bookish Goals for 2024. Below are my hopes and goals for 2024.

Goodreads Challenge

This is going to be the same goal I've had since the beginning of time - 50 books. Some years I read closer to 100, some years I read closer to 50. I think roughly a book a week is a massive amount for an average adult.


Last year the only nonfiction books I read were picked by my book club. I need to take my brain back.


I have made a TBR jar every year for as long as I can remember. I'd love to read a lot more from my jar this year. I currently have 136 books in the jar. I have no intentions of reading them all, but I want it to be my go to for picking books this year.

Kid Lit

I didn't read much middle grade or young adult last year and I'm hoping to do much better in that area this year. I know I'm missing out on some amazing stories.


I have fallen completely out of the habit of writing reviews. I miss it, and I'm struggling hard. This may make my reading feel like a job for a while, but I want to stop and write a review of everything I read as soon as I'm done reading it. Wish me luck.


I use my library a lot for digital copies of books I own. I like being able to go back and forth between print and audio. I'd love to use my library more for new to me authors or genres and then only buy the physical book if I loved it. This is a struggle because I prefer to focus on books I own, but I'm working on it.

  1. If I didn't have my library resources, I would not be able to support my reading habit. Good luck with all your goals. I don't write full reviews for every book, but I like recording some thoughts on GR. I have gone back and used those blurbs to write full on blog reviews. It's very helpful

  2. I'm doing a TBR jar this year as well. I chose a book for each month of the year, so hopefully I can read all 12. Good luck with your goals!

  3. Great goals Jen. Very realistic. I l9ve my library for new authors and books, as well as audiobooks. Good Luck.

  4. There are so many amazing nonfiction books out there!

  9. Awesome goals. I love the idea of your TBR jar. I should put one together with a list of all the books I own but haven't read yet. :D Good luck with your goals this year!

  10. Good luck with your goals. I set my Goodreads goal at 50 books this year too.

  11. Oohh, I used to have a TBR jar! I've forgotten all about it, but it's a great idea and I might try it again. Good luck with all your goals, Jennifer!

  12. Great goals. I love the idea of a TBR jar. I write my reviews immediately after finishing a book otherwise I will forget!

    Have a great week!

  13. I think you're right. If I read book a week I'm doing good most of the time.

  14. I have thought about doing a TBR jar, but I am afraid I would take the time to do it, then pull a book out, and be like, nope, not in the mood, LOL! Good luck with your goals! Cindy-https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com

  15. I'm hoping to read more nonfiction this year, too. And I love the idea of a TBR jar! What a fun way to make yourself read some of your own books. I should try that. Good luck with all of these! :D

  16. I love the idea of a TBR jar. Sounds fun!

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!
