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?
