Top Ten Tuesday #2

Hello all! I'm STILL behind on reviews but starting to catch up. Anyhow, it's fun to break up the norm with a nice meme so I give you my Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and Bookish. This week it's top ten bookish goals for 2013! This year I want to...

1) Read 4 classics (as in, widely accepted as a classic. Personally I perceive anything older than me as ancient but...) I plan to read Lord of the Rings (The Hobbit: check!) so I'll choose one more. Maybe Little Women?

2) Read 60 books total (this one should be easy:))

3)Turn a roommate into a reader. I think I've chosen my victim already! 

4) This one might be tough but... get 100 followers by the end of the year (I started blogging last month). Help me out with this one? *does puppy eyes* please?

5)Finish 5 series-there are so many conclusions I need to get to! I made a list of these 2 weeks ago here.

6) Write 2 blog posts a week. This one might be challenging (busy year) but I can do it!! (Hey I've managed so far) 

7) Write 4 chapters in my future novel (among other things, I hope to be a writer someday:))

8) Get 10 authors to retweet my reviews of their books. I've had Scott Westerfeld and Sara Zarr do it already! So honored:)

9) Get my kindle fixed (it's really about time...:/) and go crazy in the kindle store!

10) Enjoy and appreciate every minute I get to read:) Not everyone is as privileged as you and I are to be educated and have easy access to books. I even have a classmate who I know for fact saves up for months before she can buy a book. If you know anyone like that, lend them as many as you can be thankful <3 

I can't believe I actually got to ten! Leave your link in a comment and I promise to take a look! 
Have a healthy winter, people! (unless you live in Australia or South Africa in which case enjoy your summer vacation! {it's still vacation there, right?}) 



  1. I am hoping to get myself to read Little Women this year, too! It has been on my TBR list forever.

    Good luck on your goals!

  2. Those are some great goals! I am hoping to get to the Lord of the Rings trilogy this year too. I read the first one last year, now I just need to finish it up!

  3. I like your goal of getting 100 followers by the end of the year. I think I'm with ya there, i just started a new blog last week.

    Good luck with all of your goals. I hope by follow helps with one goal in particular. :)

  4. Good luck with no 7 I'd love to write more but find staying on topic hard!

  5. I need to start reading more classics as well. Good luck with your 2013 goal!

  6. Ohhhhh! I like your third goal. *hatching plan to turn my OH into a reader*

  7. I love your last resolution, we tend to take reading for granted, so yes definitely enjoy it as I don't know what I would do if I wasn't able to read :(
