My 2020 Goals | Bookish and Personal

Salutations Chapterlings! I can’t believe we’ve reached the end of December, the end of 2019, and we’re reaching into a era of exciting things waiting to happen! I have so many feelings. Reflecting back on what an intense and wild ride of a year this was, it blows my mind every time. I feel so grateful, so humbled, but also incredibly sad and emotional. I really wanted to take the time to be open with all of you, yes you dear reader, about some of the things that have happened this year that I’m proud of, things that have really opened my eyes and made me feel really blessed, and just deserve to be recognized before we get into my goals.

๐ŸŽ‡ I started the year off strong with recognizing that I’ve progressed into a more critical reader.

๐ŸŽ‡ I survived a horrible and terrifying car accident that almost took my life.

๐ŸŽ‡ I found a deep love for BTS!

๐ŸŽ‡ I ended a really toxic friendship that was eating my mental health to pieces.

๐ŸŽ‡ I became a rep for one of my favorite small businesses, Jemlin Creations!

๐ŸŽ‡ I started this blog!

๐ŸŽ‡ I’ve made so many more amazing friends in the book community like: Kayla, Emer, Donna, Robin!

๐ŸŽ‡ I’ve had so many wonderful and exciting buddy reads this year.

๐ŸŽ‡ I got promoted at my job and became the first woman in my family to say they reached a management position!

๐ŸŽ‡ I rediscovered my self-worth and value all over again.

Whoo, that felt so amazing to say, to put all of this out there into the world, to finally feel that weight of what each one of these things carry with them. This year truly has been a roller coaster of events, emotions, and the sense of a heavy weight on my shoulders. And now I’m truly ready to move into the new year and welcome more positive things in 2020. I have such big plans for the new year and yes, this is the official announcement of some of the things I have planned for the new year. I’m truly excited, very blessed for the amount of support that I’ve received, and I can’t wait to see what 2020 will bring!


๐ŸŽ‡ Bookish Plans ๐ŸŽ‡

๐ŸŽ‡ Get caught up on my 2019 backlist!

๐ŸŽ‡ Officially reach 100 books read for my first year.

๐ŸŽ‡ Finally, FINALLY get my BookTube channel up and running! (Yes, this is happening!)

๐ŸŽ‡ Get that TBR cart under control or invest in a new one!

๐ŸŽ‡ Get more organized with where my books are coming from.

๐ŸŽ‡ Celebrate one year of book blogging.

๐ŸŽ‡ Read more newer releases!


๐ŸŽ‡ Personal Plans ๐ŸŽ‡

๐ŸŽ‡ Find a job that respects me as a person.

๐ŸŽ‡ Get into less accidents.

๐ŸŽ‡ Spend more time with friends and family.

๐ŸŽ‡ Try new things!

๐ŸŽ‡ Do more of what I love.

๐ŸŽ‡Be kinder to myself and treat myself every once in a blue moon!


Okay, friends! Those are all my goals for 2020 and I’m nervous, anxious, and so excited! I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did putting this article together. As I mentioned, so many emotions and feelings have been risen from writing this article. Reflecting and looking back, I’m grateful for all the hardships, the challenges, and the weight each thing carries with them. It something I will never forget and I’m truly blessed for each moment. But please tell me in the comments some of your 2020 goals whether they’re personal or bookish, I would love to hear it and you have my full support! Until next time, may you new year take off with a bang, I love you! ๐Ÿ’•

  1. Oh my gosh you are the best!!!! <333 so much love for you Autumn!!! I feel so blessed to have met you through blogging. Looking forward to a wonderful 2020 for us both. And so many amazing things you did…and survived! Omg a car crash, that must've been so horrifically terrifying. I'm with you this year in recognising people who were less than good for my own personal wellbeing and took a tough decision to stand up for myself more than I ever used to. Makes me feel proud of myself and how much stronger I have become :))) Much love for 2020 my dear friend <333
