This week, the Top Ten Tuesday topic is out BOOKISH BUCKET LIST. I actually did a similar list for the TTT Rewind but this one is a little bit different. I added a few and took out a few with the ultimate goal of fulfilling these by the end of the year 2014.
I finished reading and reviewing 53 books last year with a goal of 60 (see Year in [Book] Review). This year, I am still keeping it at 60 and I will try reviewing all the books that I read but I am still going to count books that I haven’t read. I am now at 15 books read.
My goal is still to review at least 60 books this year. Right now, I am at 11 books reviewed. I still have more pending and I’m super excited that I am keeping up!
Hubby has already read the Trilogy (and I forced him to) BUT I haven’t read it yet. He said it’s different from the movies. He said it doesn’t end in a good note. NO SPOILERS please! This series is on my TBR list already!
I want to. But I haven’t. I read one last year and it was a DNF for me (see February Book DNRs) so I am looking at reading one this year. I want to read PERSUASION by Jane Austin this year.
I’ve also tried the audiobook but unfortunately, my mind wanders about 30 minutes in. I usually listen to it while driving to work and I don’t think that’s a good place to be distracted, no?
I know the RT Booklovers Convention is in New Orleans this year and I am so bummed that I can’t go. Being in a different state and with work, I can’t take off for a week plus, I don’t have the budget. I actually “attended” (I was at the Giant Book Fair only) the RT Booklovers Convention in 2011 which was in Los Angeles.
I really do want to join any other convention but I don’t know if there are any that is close by. Unless you know any? Shoot me a comment!
As I stated in my Top Ten Rewind post that I wanted to join Nanowrimo. I hope I can follow through. I still don’t know about this one.
Another series that I want to read…again is the Harry Potter series. I have reread my favorites (Books 1,2 and 7) over and over again but this time, I want to read them from 1 through 7 and review them. Since I am older from when I last read the books, I think I would have a different perspective and I might notice different things that I haven’t before.
I have added a few features on my site that are weekly (Friday Faves, I Heart Weekly) and monthly (Monthly Wrap-Ups) and a couple that are regular as needed (Hubby Reads & Book VS Movie). I have also joined Top Ten Tuesday regularly this past couple of months.
This is linked to #9. Since I already have my features, I am hoping that I will be regularly updating this through the end of this year (fingers crossed).
