Tope Ten Tuesday | Bookish Goals for 2023

Hello Bookworms!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Today’s prompt is Bookish Goals for 2023! I am definitely going to try to stick to all of these and will also try to have updates throughout the year for them as well!

Participate in Readathons

I usually do one or two a year, but I would like to do at least five! If I do more then it’s all the better. I feel like readathons help me finish books because I want to make sure I finish all prompts and be an overachiever, haha.

Do More Buddy Reads

I’m starting off with one so far which is more than I did last year. 😅 I feel like it’s a good way to connect with those in the book community.

Read 100 Books

Obviously I will read more than this but I just don’t like the pressure of the goal on Goodreads. I just like going with the flow!

Catch Up on Arcs

I have 20 to read on Netgalley and 2 physical arcs. I got real behind when I moved last year and haven’t caught up. I am not behind in any when it comes to reviewing so that is good at least and my percentage is at 96. I also have been requesting less. I plan to keep it that way and not just request everything that has a pretty cover or good blurb.

Continue to DNF

I’ve been doing well with this and will continue on!

Post on Boosktagram

I would be okay with two posts a week! I just need to be more consistent.

Top Ten Tuesday: A Bookish Christmas!| 12-27-22

Hello Bookworms!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Today’s prompt is Most Recent Additions to My Book Collection. I didn’t get any per say but got a few things that were bookish so I will talk about them!

I never get books for Christmas but I at least get money and can spend it on what I would like. So far, that includes only one book haha.

After reading Married by Fate by Jenny Hickman this year I knew I wanted to add it to my collection. I’m so happy I was able to!

My husband bought me a new bookshelf which I really needed since I was running out of room and I got a full year sub for Kindle Unlimited during Black Friday while it was on sale. I would say that was my early gift!

Here is a photo from my IG of my bookshelves:

What Did You Get For Christmas?

Top Ten Tuesday: I’m Thankful For….(Bookish Edition!) | 11-22-22

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Today’s prompt is Thankful Freebie so I am going to do a I’m Thankful For post! There are so many things I am thankful for when it comes to the bookish world so I am excited to make a list of them!

1.) Libraries

It’s nice to live in a country where it is easy to access books. I feel like many of us can take for that granted. I know I have in the past. It saves me money and I can binge through so many books that wouldn’t be possible to do otherwise.

2.) Special Editions

It is nice to be able to get a book that means so much with a cool cover or sprayed edges. It’s a little bit of joy that comes in the mail and I just love opening them up and seeing their beauty in person.

3.) Quiet Time

It’s always been hard to sneak away and get a few moments for myself. Books help me do that and it’s easy to get lost in them. I love being able to crawl into bed at night and get a few chapters in before I sleep.

4.) Learning

Without books I wouldn’t be able to understand and learn more about certain topics like cultures, people, and just the world in general. There is so much knowledge in books!

5.) Bonding Time

I love being able to share what I am reading with my sister and even my husband. Although, he probably doesn’t care as much haha. I also enjoy the moments with my daughter when it comes to reading. We have been going every other Saturday to the library as a family and it has been nice.

6.) Community

Thank you all for being here and enjoying the journey with me! I love interacting with people in the bookish community. It has brought a lot of friends into my life and it’s fun to hop around in the blogosphere to see what others think of books I have loved or disliked lol. It’s been fantastic to get know you all better through this website and even Instagram. I do wish I did more buddy reads and maybe that will be a goal for next year.
