In previous years, I’ve picked a long list and big stack of books I want to read that year. I’ve found that I struggle to stick with that list because I always find so many other books I want to read and that initial list makes me feel kind of guilty that I’m not following through.
Instead of trying that approach again, I’m experimenting with something different in 2022: I’m going to set monthly reading goals. At the beginning of the month, I’ll pick a stack of books I want to read that month and I’ll focus on reading those books throughout the month.
This way, I can make room for the many new or new-to-me titles I discover throughout the year. Plus, I can pick fewer books to read on the months that I know there is a lot going on.
A few of these are titles I had planned to read in previous months and didn’t get finished, so they are on my stack again — and I’m hoping to finish them this month!

I’m a big fan of Sissy Goff’s book, Raising Worry-Free Girls, so I’m excited that there’s finally a counterpart book by her podcast co-host and counseling center co-director, David Thomas. I got to meet him when I recently did a podcast interview for their podcast, so I’m really excited to read this pre-release copy.
This looked like a helpful book on friendship. I’m always looking for good books on friendship as it’s a question I’m often asked for resources on.
