Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is the Top Ten Things On My Bookish Bucket List (could be blogging related, book related etc. — meeting authors, reading x many books per year, finishing a daunting book, etc.)
Read more of what I want to read
Since being approved for advanced reading copies, I seem to be reading more review copies over books that have been waiting on my shelves for months. I really need to reassess the balance. I’m working on this in March. I know this is a common problem with many book bloggers.
Read some more classics
I think I say this a lot, but I definitely want to increase my read list for some of the classics!
Read 150 books
I’m hoping I meet my target. It’s doable, but from September, if all goes to plan, I’m going to be MUCH busier. Will this impact my reading/blogging? Not sure. Let’s hope not.
Finish more series
I think this is always going to be on my bookish bucket list. I swear most of the books I read these days are series!
Step outside of my comfort zone more
I have an idea for a feature for this forming. I think I definitely need to try stepping outside of my comfort zone when it comes to genres. I’ve found books I adore through opening my mind a little, and I definitely need to explore genres more.
Publish more discussion posts
I often write discussion posts, but never get around to publishing them. It’s a combination of things really. I think that people won’t enjoy them or that I haven’t expressed myself well enough. I’ve seen though, that when I have published discussion posts, that they get great feedback and interaction with other bloggers. This really makes my day, so I need to do it more!
Continue to collaborate with other bloggers
At the moment, I publish reviews with Luna’s Little Library and Bibliobeth. I love blogging with others. I want to continue to do this, because it’s fun and gives my blog more content that just my reviews and memes.
Continue to support other bloggers
I love it when my blog gets some comment love, so I need to continue to ensure I show the blogs I love how much I like reading them. I think it’s so important to support other bloggers. It’s lovely when
Continue to engage with commenters
I absolutely love it when I have a comment on my blog. It always makes me smile. I try to reply to my comments, even if it is incredibly time consuming, because to me, it’s important that people who have left a comment, know that I’ve read and replied to it! 😀
Attend more events
Part of my favourite thing about being a book lover is being around other book lovers! I want to go to more events that excite me. Whether that be a particular book launch, or just something like YALC. It is a goal of mine to eventually attend BEA… but we’ll see.
