Sci-Fi & Scary’s 2021 Resolutions

I don’t think anyone can deny that this has been a hell of a year. The world seems to be holding its collective breath to see what next year will bring. Hopefully something a little better.

But in the meantime, it doesn’t hurt to have a few resolutions for next year (other than just trying to maintain our mental and physical health). Below is the Kali Krew’s resolutions for 2021 both for our bookish ways and for the site itself.

Lilyn’s Resolutions

Bookish Resolution:

“I’d like to find my reading mojo again after 2020 dingo’d it.”

Site Resolution:

“To learn to enjoy running it again instead of just looking at it as a colossal energy suck and parasite on my mental health.”

Gracie’s Resolutions

Bookish Resolutions:

“I plan to read more and just get more interested in general about movies, books, and games. I’ve had a lack of concentration that I don’t want to carry with me into the new year.”

Site Resolutions:

“I plan to be more proactive about some of the ideas that I have for the site and expanding it. I also want to put more time and thought into my Focus on the Frightful posts. I always try to do them well but compared to earlier ones I feel that some of this year’s has been lacking.”

Olly’s Resolutions

Bookish Resolutions:

“I need to stop buying new books until I make a sizeable dent in my TBR pile.

“I’d also like to focus more on reading for pleasure.”

Site Resolutions:

“I want to get Crime Fiction up and running solidly and I would also like to recruit another member for the UK Team.”

Sam’s Resolutions

Bookish Resolutions:

“I’d like to explore fantasy more in the new year. It’s a genre I used to love when I was younger but I got away from it because it was feeling a bit repetitive since in my mind (at the time) fantasy = epic fantasy only. I know now that there are tons of subgenres and different niches within the genre, and I’d love to read more in those areas.”

Site Resolutions:

“I’m aiming to read 20 books (maybe 21 for 2021) recommended to me by various people, to get me reading outside my comfort zone. I’d also like to focus mainly on books I already own but we’ll see how that goes.”

Eliza’s Resolutions

Bookish Resolutions:

“My goal is for 75% of my reading to be works by women and marginalized authors.”

Shawn’s Resolutions

Bookish Resolutions:

“I have a similar one to Olly. I bought a tooooon of books last year and the unread ones now have their own shelf. I want to read a good number of them before getting more.”

“I also want to read the Rewind or Die series, which flies in the face of my previous resolution.”

Brian’s Resolutions

Bookish Resolutions:

“This might sound like a joke but it isn’t. I want to read more physical books. I primarily do audio with kindle e-books being a distant second. Audio will always be my primary because I can listen while at work. But I need to up my physical game.”

Bill’s Resolutions

Bookish Resolutions:

“Read more non-fiction, particularly in math and science.”

Site Resolutions:

“Build up some momentum and energy around the Hugo My Way series.”
