Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted at The Broke and The Bookish where they post a list idea and everyone is welcome to post the list with their own answers. This week the theme is Top Ten Things On My Bookish Bucket List.
Throw a Book Themed Party
We threw a Harry Potter party before, complete with costumes, games recipes and Harry Potter Ring of Fire, and it was so much fun. I’d love to throw another book themed party, maybe using The Hunger Games Ring of Fire, or a Game of Thrones inspired party using the Inn at The Crossroads recipes.
Get my NetGalley ratio up to 95%
This one feels like a bit of a pipe-dream at the moment, but it’s fun to think about! I’ve been slowly working on my ratio and it’s getting much better but it still has a long long way to go.
Review 200 books
This one’s pretty self-explanatory, it’s just a nice round number to aim for!
Meet 20 authors
I’ve only met one author since I started blogging (Robin Hobb), and I’d really love to meet more. I don’t exactly live in a tourist city, and I’m not very organised about checking for events, so I’d like to make more of an effort!
Host a blog event
Make bookish crafts
I occasionally like to try and convince myself I’m a creative person (though mostly I’m just a lazy person), and I’d like to try a few book inspired crafts. Some especially fun tutorials are these mini book pendants, this library bag, this book iphone dock.
Take part in a book club (online or in person)
I’m not really picky whether this is online or in person, but I’d like to take part in a book club. Obviously, in person would be better, but I haven’t found any – any good online club recommendations for me?
I took part in NaNoWriMo (and won!) in 2011, but I haven’t taken part again since. I’ll have started my MSc by the time November rolls around so I’m not sure that’s practical, but I’m thinking of maybe taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo this July.
Go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter
I’ve done the Harry Potter Studio Tour, and loved it, but I’ve not yet made it to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. This is definitely on my list, and although it’s going to be a while before I can afford it, I can’t wait to finally go. My other half is a big Harry Potter fan too, so at least I won’t have to bully him into it!
Have a reading space
I do admittedly have to afford to move out first, but when I do, one thing I really want to have is a reading space. Being realistic, I don’t mind if that’s just a section of a room (for now!), as long as I’ve got a bookish space to relax and read in.
