Top 10 Tuesday is a feature/weekly meme created at the broke and the bookish
This week’s topic is to list the top 10 things you want to do, concerning bookish things.
I have chosen to list all things any book/blog related things I want to do, without picking any more specific topics.
My first bookish goal is to finish some of the series I’ve started. I’ve started so many over the years and a lot even in the past six months or so and it’s not like I don’t want to continue reading those, I just get distracted a lot. So I need to figure out a system to finish some of those.
Read. The. Hunger. Games. I cannot believe I haven’t gotten to that yet, but it’s going to happen! I have even planned to read them together with Christine from Readerly Musings, in the beginning-middle of April so now I can’t back down! I’m going to read them!
I would love to interact more with other book bloggers. I see that a lot of them have personal relationships with each other and are friends and it seems like so much fun. Who knows? Maybe one day I’ll even get to meet some of you guys!
I want to read a bit more diversely. I love reading YA, but I don’t want to just stick to that. I also want to try different genres, since most of the times I’ve read some adult fiction I wasn’t disappointed. But I still always go back to young adult. And I don’t want to stop with that, but I definately want to add some more genres!
I need to film more videos. If you follow me on youtube as well you might have noticed that I have neglected my channel lately. I haven’t uploaded a video for a while now and I really want to get back to that. My excuses are that I’m on vacation and I already have to sudy for exams and I don’t want to add any more things on my to-do list right now. I’ve also been in a bit of a filming/editing slump. I just don’t feel like it right now. But I do want to get back to doing it real soon!
I want to try and keep my promises a bit better. I sometimes say that I want to do this or that on my blog and then end up not doing it, wich I hate, but I’m really bad at sticking with my plans sometimes. I’ll try to work on that and think twice before I agree on doing something, so that I make sure I’ll be able to keep up with what I say.
I would like to create a blog design that I’m completely happy with. I keep changing things around, but nothing seems perfect to me. The problem is I’m not very creative, I don’t know anything about CSS and stuff and I’m on wordpress.com which has many limitations. But I also don’t want to pay for something I consider a hobby, so I just try to work things out on my
I want to start interacting with some authors. I rarely ever say anything to an author on twitter because I’m too shy and I feel like I’m bothering them. I have tweeted a couple of them when I write a possitive review of their book, but so far only one has answered. I don’t know if it’s just me, but since they don’t answer I feel like I’m just wasting their and my time by tweeting them, so sometimes I don’t even bother!
Gather the courage and ask for an ARC. I see almost every book blogger getting them and I know I don’t have much of a chance because I live in Europe and I don’t have that many followers, but I would like to give it a shot. Just getting the courage and asking a small publishing house for a review copy will be a success for me.
I want to own more books. This probably sounds weird to most of you, since book bloggers are known for having tons and tons of books on their bookshelves. Well, not me. Since I’ve moved to Germany I don’t think I have more than 50 books on my bookshelf. Probably even less. And no more than 5 of them are unread. I don’t really want to go too crazy with my unread books pile, because after a while I start feeling guilty for buying new books when I have so many that I haven’t read. But I still want to create a pretty little bookshelf and for that I need more books!
