Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish this weeks topic is all about the things on our bookish bucket lists.

1. Read ALL the books in my house. (cue laughter in 3…2…)

2. Read at least 150 books in 2014. (click here to see my progress)

3. To fill up all my reading category buckets.

4. To be better at spending at least an hour each day reading.

5. To write down more of the quotes I like in books.

6. To be better at writing up event recaps

7. To be better at scheduling out posts and reviewing books after I finish reading them…and just in general to be caught up on my reviews!

8. To read more classics.

9. To read more epic fantasy series. Its a genre I’ve always loved but the last few years I’ve allowed the size of the books to intimidate me. For example, I want to finish the Song of Ice and Fire series. I’m currently about 1/2 way through Clash of Kings but haven’t touched it in ages.

10. To get caught up/finish some favorite series of mine (ie The Dresden Files (3 books behind), Vampire Academy (2 books behind – 7 if you include the Bloodlines spinoff), Rizzoli & Isles (4 books behind), Codex Alera (1 book behind), Julie Garwood’s FBI series (9 books behind).

    I think we all can identify will all or most of this list. I really do need to read for an hour each day. Somehow I don’t do that. I also really would like to read more Classic novels. I think I need to adopt the DNF rule. But I don’t know whether to rate those or just leave them be… #readerproblems

    Great list! I also need to read all the book on my shelves. Like that will ever happen. Good luck wit hall your goals. I got intimidated just reading them. Also, get back to Clash of Kings. It is SO good. if you put down book four for a while, that is totally acceptable!

    ‘To read all the books in my house’ yea, that one is similar to a couple of mine and is almost wishful thinking but I hope be both manage to somehow succeed.
