December 2019 Goals

Happy December, bookish friends! December is my favorite month because it’s my birthday month and Christmas is my favorite holiday. Because this month is a busy time, I’ve kept my goals small and similar to November’s. This year I’ve decided not to participate in Bookmas/Blogmas, but I hope to publish as much content as I can possibly manage. I have a few things in my drafts that I’m very excited about.

December Goals

1. 2019 ARCs – I have three 2019 review copies that I haven’t read yet. I’m currently reading one of them and have plans to buddy read another. My goal is finish them before the end of the year because I want a fresh start in 2020 when it comes to ARCs.

2. Exercise – I accomplished my November goal to exercise regularly by working out 5 days a week. I’d like to continue that in December.

3. Figure out what I want to do for my birthday – This is a goal from November. I figured out Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I still don’t know how I want to spend my birthday. The downside of having your birthday on New Year’s Eve is that things are normally expensive and friends are spending time with their family because it’s the holidays.

4. Schedule end of year content – I have about 5 end of year posts planned. I’ve drafted most of them, but I’d like to finish them before Christmas.

What are your December plans? Let me know in the comments! Thanks so much for reading!

  1. December is going to be so hectic and busy! I always try to plan ahead, get everyone Xmas gifts early so I won’t need to worry about it at the very last minute, but this year my plans keep getting sabotaged by random things.
    This means that my December / End of the Year To-Do list is going to be VEEERY long.

    I’m still hopeful that I’ll finish everything on my list by Dec 20th, and then enjoy the 2 weeks off work without stressing out about holidays and everything else.

    Good luck with your goals! (and ARCs! 🙂 I still have 7 to finish this year…)

  2. I was able to finish my reading challenges, my few ARCs for the rest of the year, and Nanowrimo in November, so I’m excited to read for fun in December. I’ll finally get to Call Down the Hawk and some holiday reads that have been staring at me from my shelf. Now, being ready for Christmas is another story. Typically I’ve decorated by now, but there’s not a tree or lights or wreath in sight yet. 😉

    Good luck with all your December goals!

    1. Congratulations on completing Nanowrimo! That’s quite an accomplishment! I’m jealous that you finished reading your ARCs because I desperately want to be done so I could mood read the rest of the month.

  3. I think December birthdays in general are hard to be plan for because everyone is so wrapped up in holiday stuff. I can’t even remember the last time I was able to celebrate my birthday with extended family and friends because everyone’s so busy this time of year. That said I’m planning a trip for myself and my daughter to celebrate our birthdays next year.

    Anyways, I hope you are to plan something to fun and enjoyable for your upcoming birthday!

    1. You’re definitely right about that. I thought I was the only person who felt this way about having a December birthday. This year, I’ve seen so many other people talk about the difficulties on Twitter. I feel validated.

      Happy birthday to you and your daughter! I hope you have (or had) an enjoyable birthday too!
