Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish Goals for 2013

Posted January 7, 2013 by Stormy in Books / 0 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday

Once again, I’m participating in The Broke and the Bookish Top Ten Tuesday, in which various bloggers list their top ten on a given item. The theme this week? Top Ten Bookish Goals for 2013.

1. Post on Book.Blog.Bake. at least twice a week

I’m counting this as book-related since this is primary a book(with a side of baking) blog. Still new to the blogging world, though I think I’m beginning to find my ground. I just want to make sure this blog stays on track once classes start again.

2. Read at least 50 books

Normally, I don’t have much trouble reading 50 books in a year, but I’m graduating in May, and as of now, don’t really know what my life is going to look like after that. Depending on what I end up doing, my life may be overwhelmed with moving, starting a new job, etc. I feel like this is a good way of keeping me accountable to making reading at least somewhat of a priority.

3. Engage in conversations about books

The book blogging world will definitely help with this! In college, I’m required to take literature classes and discuss books, and I like that. When I graduate in May, that instant book community won’t be there any more.

4. Read more Young Adult Books

I’ve never been a strictly YA book reader, but I typically read a handful each year. In 2012, I read a lot less, and I miss it. There are so many gems in the YA book world and while I will never be able to read them all, I don’t want to miss it completely like I did for most of the past year.

5. Read more fiction

Along the same vein as #4. I read mostly memoirs and non-fiction books in 2012. Don’t get me wrong, I love my memoirs too, but I miss the thrill of fiction. I started remedying that in December, but it’s a trend I’d like to continue.

This one’s a top 5 for me today! What are some of your bookish goals for 2013?

  1. […] I also spent some post looking ahead to 2013 and the coming year. I’m participating in the 2013 Feminist Read Challenge as well as a social justice theme read in February. At the end of December, I wrote about what I’m looking forward to in 2013, and wrote a Top Ten Tuesday about books I resolve to read in 2013 as well as my bookish resolutions.ย  […]

  2. I know what you mean about losing your community. I’ve been graduated for nearly 4 years now and I definitely miss some of the conversations (including rants, complaints, jokes, etc.) about books. I’m hoping to get on schedule with some of the goodreads groups I’m a part of and read/discuss the books they’ve ‘assigned’ each month.

    Also, great alias! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I’ve tried to get into the goodreads group, but I think the virtual book club idea doesn’t really work for me as well as talking in person does, but blogging has been quite helpful so far.

  3. First, I love your blog title! Second, good list. One of my goals is to read outside of my comfort zone, and that means non-fiction for me. I hope you accomplish your goals!

    • Thanks! I love the goal of reading outside of one’s comfort zone–I definitely started doing that at the end of 2012, but I’m hoping to continue in 2013, but my non-comfort zone has been YA.

  4. I love the idea of combining baking and books on a single blog. Good luck with the goals. I read a little too much YA and fiction. I should aspire to achieve the opposite of a few of your goals and read more adult and nonfiction this year.

    • Thanks for stopping by! Good luck with your goals. I feel I might be the only person to have a goal of actually reading MORE YA, but I feel I have a few years to catch up on!

    • I agree! Talking about books in person is ideal, but the blogging world is a good community too. It’s just much harder to find people IRL who want to put up with all my bookish ramblings!
