2020 Bookish Resolutions Challenge ~ Time to Sign Up! #BookishRes2020

Posted December 4, 2019 by Michelle in Bookish Resolutions / 11 Comments

It’s time for the 2020 Bookish Resolutions Challenge

We are going back to basics! Bookish Resolutions Challenge is about setting New Year’s Resolutions for Reading, book blogging or Writing…You can sign up via blog post, Facebook, Twitter or Goodreads!
This last year things got a little quiet around the blog as both of us had lots going on. Michelle had some major anxiety/OCD/depression issues that cause some her to step back a few times from the reading/blogging world and Berls had a baby and a lot of life changes. We are planning to do better this year with updates and will also be doing the Task it Tuesday Meme since we think it fits so nicely with the challenge and can help you accomplish a lot of your goals.

Sign Up is between now to February 28th, the challenge starts January 1st and ends December 31st 2020


  1. Create between 3 or more resolutions related to books/book blogging/writing (there are examples below but you can make up your own)(you can have as many resolutions as you would like, there is no limit) 
  2. Create a signup post and add it to the Linky on this post (sign up before Feb 28th)
  3. Since this is a year long challenge we ask that you pick goals with some longevity. Pick a goal that will take you no less than 4 months to complete.
  4. Twice a year we will have an update to see how you are doing. May 1st and September 1st. The last update will be the wrap up post.
  5. For each goal you complete you get one entry into the giveaway that will be in our wrap up post on December 31, 2020
  6. The Winner will be picked randomly so the more goals you complete the better chance you have to winning one of the $5 Amazon Gift Cards at the end of the year.
We’ll be giving away two $5 Amazon gift cards at the end of December 2020


As this is a personal challenge everyone is likely to set different goals! But to make things easier, we’ve come up with some blogging, reading and writing examples!

*Task It Tuesday 

What is Task it Tuesday? Task it Tuesday meme dedicated to the list makers of the blogging/writing world. It’s all about being productive and organized – on your blog and in real life (if you so chose). By sharing our lists we get instant accountability partners and also get ideas of things to add to our lists (or sometimes ways to tackle tasks more efficiently). We hope you’ll join us!
You will find the link up on the Second Tuesday of the Month. You are welcome to do Task it Tuesday once a week or once a month. It’s totally up to you. When the link goes up you can add all your links to share with others.
What are some of your top goals for 2019? Tell us in the comments below and don’t forget to link up!

Link up here so we can see how you are doing with your bookish resolutions!

  1. Well I may have to update my goals in a few weeks but mostly I want to read books I want to read, and try to get to ones I own instead of just ARCs and library books. I’m going to try to stay more organized on the blog implementing things I have learned over the last year, and do a few more discussion posts. I want to do more reading and less challenges per se. I will do the ReadASeries and COYER. I’m also co-hosting Library Love which is my first time hosting a major challenge. Some of these goals are harder to quantify and track, though.

  2. I really SHOULD do this… but I probably will just cheer you on. I don’t even know what to think January will be like. My life has changed so much in the past year! I look forward to seeing your goals though 🙂
