Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I thought this would be a fun way to share a condensed version of potential rambles and thoughts that I have.
This week’s theme:
Top Ten Goals/Resolutions For 2014
I don’t really set goals or resolutions for myself anymore as the impending doom of the quarter-life crisis looms in a few years. So I just focus on taking the days as they come. And I’m also pretty sure I’m in the same boat with those who convince themselves to set resolutions fully knowing deep down that nothing will come out of it. So here’s to hoping that (at least) 1% of the listed ‘bullet-points-that-I-will-refrain-from-calling-a-goalsolution’ will be met.
1. Expand the library
•thoughts: I read too much sci-fi…so the focus is on having a 1:2 ratio of alternative genre-to-sci-fi, unless I:
2. Pick up and/or complete older series
•thoughts: need to read several series that I haven’t got the chance to yet. should be fun times writing a review for a trilogy/series/or more all at once.
3. Collaborate with other readers on reviews
•thoughts: I think it would be neat to develop the basis of a review through conversation; feeding ideas and tangents back and forth.
4. Maybe get into reviewing ARCs?
•thoughts: the hesitance is real (since I’m still a subpar reviewer). but then I think: why not? it’s just an expedited review…right?
Great. Now I don’t have a choice; it’s set in blog-o-paper-stone.
But aside from the last one; which I believe more people should take the extra effort and time to exhibit/demonstrate/what-have-you, I can’t think of anymore bookish-centric ones for myself as a newbie reviewer/rambler/blogger/keyboard smasher.
And besides: baby steps yo’.
So bring on the New Year…or whatever that nifty catchphrase is… i wouldn’t know…
