The New Year’s Resolution Book Tag 2022

Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be completing the New Year’s Resolution Book Tag for 2022, as I somehow haven’t actually done this Tag since 2019 even though I really like the questions. Onto the post!


1. An Author You’d Like To Read That You’ve Never Read

I have a lot of people I could answer for this, but one author where I’m hoping to get to all their books at some point in the year is Darren Simpson, because one of bookish friends is a HUGE fan. And two 2021 debuts I never quite got round to reading that I bought copies of with some Christmas money are Last One to Die and Morgana Mage in the Robotic Age. And obviously there are LOADS of 2022 debuts I’m buzzing about as well.

2. A Book You’d Like To Read

I mean, I’d be here all day if I tried to name them all!! 3. A Classic You’d Like To Read You know, I actually don’t think I have any? There are classics I’d like to read someday, such as Little Women, but I don’t see me getting to it this year. Although I suppose you never know!

4. A Book You’d Like To Re-Read

Since I utterly failed to read any of them over Christmas, the Nevermoor series seems like an obvious choice here as I want a refresher before Silverborn comes out. I also really want to re-read the Flatshare because I think I’d love it even more now!!

5. A Book You’ve Had For Ages and Want To Read

I mean, again, there are so many!! One that did immediately pop into my head, though, was the MG fantasy Tunnels Below, so I’ll say that I guess.

6. A Big Book You’d Like To Read

I can’t think of a “big book” in terms of length so I’ll pick a hardback I want to get to, which is the Twyford Code by Janice Hallett.

7. An Author You’ve Previously Read and Would Like To Read More Of

I mean, so so many! I’m honestly overwhelmed by how many talented people are writing books right now.

8. A Book You Got For Christmas and Would Like To Read

People don’t really buy me books for Christmas apart from the very odd thing, but I did use some money I received to buy books. And one of those that I’m especially super excited to get to is the Spanish Love Deception.

9. A Series You Want To Read From Start to Finish

I mean there’s obviously Nevermoor but I’ve already mentioned it and it’s mostly a reread and the series isn’t complete, so it feels like a wee bit of a cop out.

10. A Series You Want To Finish That You’ve Already Started

I still haven’t read the 3rd Kat Stephenson book, and I’d like to get to that at some point. And Stephanie Burgis isn’t releasing any new MG this year so I’m quite glad I have it tucked away so I can still pick something up by her.

11. Do You Set Reading Goals?

If So, How Many Books Do You Want To Read in 2022? I do, and I’m being very ambitious this year given I read way more than I thought I would last year, and setting it at 300.

12. Any Other Reading Goals?

Um, I don’t think I have any! I’m planning to try and do a couple of book challenges I’ve seen on Instagram but not in any kind of rigid way because that just makes me feel stressed. I’d also kind of like to participate in at least one readathon, because I haven’t done one in YEARS.


Thank you so much for reading! What are some of your reading goals for this upcoming year? Do you have any thoughts on the books I’ve mentioned? I’d love to hear in the comments!

  1. Great answers, Amy!
    For me, I definitely need to read a classic from the Brontes. I will definitely re-read and listen again to What Abigail did that Summer. That will be a great intro into the new Rivers of London book, Amongst our Weapons. That should be totally awesome.
    I do need to read more, but am so time constrained, blog, work, and writing my own things. So I am looking at bettering the 52 score from last year. But to be fair, I am a necessarily slow reader and hate to read (quickly) for the sake of it.
    I have to agree about Silverborn, that is one I cant wait to get my paws onto – just like a dozen others I long for.
    As to big books, well, the collected adventures of Sherlock Holmes would be a good one, but I have seen so many TV adaptations spanning decades, I am not sure I can.
    As to reading goals, well, just to keep enjoying and sharing as many good books as I can, to adults and kids alike.

    1. I was really struggling last year and I sometimes don’t read very much when I feel like that, and after I got very ill with stress a doctor suggested setting myself ambitious reading goals to always make sure I made time for it in my day. I’ve always been a fast reader anyway (my parents were driven demented when I finished a new book after like an hour 😂), but it’s really helped me. I don’t ever want to make anyone feel like I’m bragging about hoping to read that many or anything!! It’s just a way to help me 😊
      I really hope you manage to achieve all your goals ❤

  2. Gosh, no, I didnt think that. It is so cool that you can read quick. My family did, but I am the exception. The joy of a book of course is multifold, that we can each find our own meaning and time. One thing for certain is that you cant beat a good book. We shall have to compare notes come 2023 🙂
