Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Today’s topic is “Ten Bookish Resolutions/Goals.” I don’t know if I have 10 of them, but I do have some lofty goals for this year. Well, lofty for me, anyway. Here’s my list:

1. Read at least 36 books: I’ve been in a reading slump the past two years, so I’ve set my goal a little low to help me not feel too much pressure. (I have a not so secret goal of reading 50 books, though, so I don’t know why I just don’t change it. 😂 )

2. Participate in the Debut Author Challenge: I want to read at least three books by debut authors this year. I plan to read Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, A Conspiracy of Stars by Olivia A. Cole, and The Queen’s Rising by Rebecca Ross.

3. Participate in the Listopia Challenge for PBT Goodreads: I want to read at least seven books from the Books by Utah Authors list. This will fulfill a few challenges for me, but mostly the Listopia one.

4 – 6. Read and finish a few religious books: I’m LDS and there’s a manual, set of scriptures, and a book I want to read this year.

7. Comment more: I know this is more blog related than book related, but since I follow mostly book blogs, I’m counting it. I want to be a better commenter. One of the things I love about blogging is the interaction I have with other bloggers.

8. Post more discussion posts: I want to do more discussion posts and features. Those are the posts I love to comment on because of the natural interaction they create and I want to create that type of an atmosphere on my blog.

9. Keep track of how much I spend on books: I want to keep track of how much I spend on books, especially since I don’t always read all the books I buy right away. More than half of my books haven’t been read yet. They’re just waiting for me to pick them up.

10. Finish a few series: There are a few series I’ve been meaning to finish for a while now. I plan to finish them this year. They are The Mortal Instruments, Into the Dark, Defy, Lunar Chronicles, and The Winner’s Curse. I also want to catch up on the Throne of Glass series and The Dark Artifices trilogy.

What are some of your bookish resolutions/goals?

    I like your goals. Oh, some years, keeping track or checking how much I was spending on books would have been scary! I’ve cut back a bunch since that time, but seriously! LOL

    Good luck and I think doing more discussion posts is a good goal for all us. 🙂

    Sounds like some good goals. I want to do more discussion posts too. I even gave a list of topics but never seem to have the time or, if I do, I can’t get in the mood. Good luck with all your goals!

      I understand. That’s how I felt last year. This year, I seem to be doing okay. Hopefully, I’ll stay in this place. 😀 I hope you get to a place where you want to as well.

    I happen to think you’re a great commenter 🙂 I always appreciate hearing from you. Also, you’re ON FIRE with completing personal goals right now, so I have a feeling you’ll accomplishing lots of your bookish goals as well. You’re my inspiration!
