Top Ten Bookish Goals/Teaser Tuesday



Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish featuring a new top ten list each week. Everyone can participate just head on over to their blog and sign up. Each week they will post a new top ten list that one of our bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday.


Top Ten Bookish Goals


1. Read more New Adult- I'm really liking reading about college-aged kids. Probably because I am in college and am the target audience. I've loved every single one of these that I've read in this genre.

2. Read 80 books by May/June- I leave for an extended trip where I will not be reading books in May or June. I hope to have read 80 by then.

3. Make a serious dent in my TBR list-This where most of the 80 books will come from.

4. Get caught up on review docket/update my review archive regularly.

5. Read more of other people's book reviews.

6. Host more giveaways-because you're awesome.

7. Post reviews right after I read them not weeks later.

8. Post at least 12 reviews a month.

9. Get to know more of you bloggers better-every blogger I've met is so nice and friendly. I'd love to get know you all better.

10. Read 3 books a week-I didn't read nearly as much as I wanted to last semester. It was kind of feast or famine. I want to be more consistent.

And that's all for me. What was your top ten? Please feel free to leave your link in the comments. I love reading them. :)


~Teaser Tuesday~

This meme is hosted by Miz B of Should be Reading.

The rules are really simple. Just grab the book you're reading and turn to a random page. Pick two sentences and post them along with the page number, book, and author.

Without further ado here is my Teaser Tuesday for this week. 

So what do I wish for? Screw it. Let the Fates decide. I wish for the thing that is best for me. ~Anna and the French Kiss page 87.

I've heard so many amazing things about this book that I decided I better just cave and read it all ready. It's good so far, but I was expecting it to be better. I'm only on page 90, so I'm sure it does get better. 

Can't wait to find out one way or the other.

That's all for me. Which book did you pick this week. Please comment and leave your link. I check out every single link and respond" to every comment. :)

  1. I am really impressed with your 80 books by May/June--that's more than my year-long goal! I haven't read a new adult book yet, but I really need to try at least one. I feel I'm kind of the target audience(college student), but I haven't really found one that's caught my eye so far.

  5. Great teaser! I really enjoyed that book, but it wasn't a "fabulous read to share with all my friends" kind of book for me. It was a lot of fun though! Glad you're enjoying it. :)

  8. Great goals! Good luck whittling down that TBR pile! It seems to be the never ending pile for me. The other day I went through my Kindle and had totally forgotten all of the GREAT books I have waiting for me there! I wish I could read 24/7 to catch up! :)

  11. Great goals!! and happy blogoversary! You read so fast! I wish I could read 80 books by may! I only read 70 books in 2012 total :( this year I want to hit 100! Also I am loving New Adult as well. So refreshing to read about college-aged people (they've been neglected for a while now).

  21. 80 books by May!!? Jeeps. I'm lucky if I get 50 books in during the whole year. Good luck! I'm also loving the New Adult genre. It has all of the elements of YA but just a touch more spice. Thanks for stopping by my TTT. Good luck with your resolutions!

  22. lol I hear you on #3 and #7 of your bookish goals. I've been pretty good at posting up reviews within the week that I've finished reading it but there's been a few that took me longer than that and yeah, the reviews just weren't the same, haha.

    Good luck with your bookish goals this 2013!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, number 2 is a lot! 3, 5, 6, ,7, 9 are on my list too, though some of them didnt make it to my top ten. Anna and the French Kiss is a great novel! Loved it! Good luck!
