Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Bucket List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Broke and Bookish.  Each week a new list topic is posted, and book bloggers fill in their choices.  This week's topic is "My Bookish Bucket List.

Here's mine:

1. Read more classics.  There are so many classics that are free on Amazon, so I have tons downloaded on my Kindle.  I really need to start them soon!

2. Meet more of my favorite authors.  I've been lucky enough to meet many of my favorite authors, but I'd love to meet some such as Lauren DeStefano, Cassandra Clare, John Green, and Kasie West.

3. Read the Harry Potter books.  Can you believe I've never read them?  *ducks* I know, I know.  I'd like to give them a try eventually.

4. Have a library in my house.  I'm only 16, but once I move out and get my own apartment or house, I'm definitely going to have my own personal library!  I've gotten so much inspiration and ideas from seeing libraries and bookshelves on Pinterest.

5. Do more bookish crafts.  I'm big into DIY and quirky crafts, and I really want to start doing more book-related crafts.  Again - I have tons of ideas from stuff I've pinned on Pinterest, so I want to try it soon!

6. Go to more events and conferences.  It feels like I'm one of the few bloggers who hasn't attended BEA or ALA or something similar, and I am absolutely dying to go sometime.

7. Visit bookish places.  I would love the chance to visit the settings of Jane Austen novels, the Anne of Green Gables series, or even go to New Zealand to see where they filmed The Lord of the Rings. *sigh* A girl can dream, right?

8. Get blurbed.  I think it's safe to say that this is every book blogger's dream.  Who wouldn't want a snippet of their review to be featured inside a book?

9. Read all the books I own.  This was actually one of my New Year's Resolutions. :) So far, I've already knocked out seven or eight, and I think I have around fifteen left.

10. Have a bookish engagement photoshoot or bookish wedding.  How amazing would this be?  Not to mention Pinterest again (can you tell I'm addicted?), but there's so many great ideas and inspiration to be found there.  At the very least, I'm going to do a book-themed photoshoot for my senior pictures next year!  But a literary/bookish wedding (think Pride & Prejudice) would be so much fun.

What's on your Top Ten Tuesday list?

  1. I also should've added "read all books you own"! I tend to buy new ones, but then forget to read them because I've bough a new batch of books! Great list. :)

  2. I love your list! Lots of fun but still practical. :) I love the idea of visiting places from books. The Pride and Prejudice themed wedding (or engagement) shoot really appeals to me... I might have to do that when the time come as well. :)

  3. I feel so old now I'm getting the the age where kids haven't read Harry Potter *sobs* that was my childhood *more sobbing*

    Seriously, READ THEM. Pleeeease.
