This week is my top ten bookish bucket list items!
1 — Read Harry Potter. Seriously. I've discussed this before, but Harry Potter needs to be read. I've read books 1-3, but nothing farther. That needs to get done.
2 — Have a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf. These are so cool. Whenever I get a house, I'm getting/building one of these. They're just so cool, and it'll look so pretty with all my books just sitting on the shelves. My only problem would be that I'm short (5'2" English), and I wouldn't be able to reach the books on the top shelf...
3 — Read one book a day for a month. This is literally a dream of mine. It would have to happen in the summer, but wouldn't that be a great way to get books off my TBR? Of course I'd have to write the reviews the same day too and post them. Maybe even make a challenge with some winners...
4 — Marathon Percy Jackson. I've read all five books in Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Lost Hero, and The Son of Neptune, but I stopped there. And this happened a long time ago. I barely remember anything that happened! I've recently reread The Lightning Thief and The Sea of Monsters, but c'mon... I want to read them all consecutively.
5 — Have all my books read. This, realistically, will never happen, but I can dream. Yes, I mean bought books AND ARCS. I'm shooting high, guys.
6 — Get my NetGalley percentage up to 100%. I'm not even kidding. This needs to happen. Maybe over spring break...
7 — Read and review all ARCs two weeks before publication. This needs to happen as well. I'm sick and tired of cramming and making up for lost time with my scheduling and reading. Plus, if I read and review the ARCs asap, then I'll have more time to read the other books I want to! I'm tired of being restricted to reading ARCs. I'm tired of reading and reviewing a title the night before the review is scheduled to be posted on my blog. (That has happened way more than I'd like to admit it has.)
8 — Reader faster. I suppose 100 pages per hour is pretty fast, but think about how many books I could read if I could read 150 or even 200 pages an hour. I'd be visiting the library more often since my wallet only stretches so far!
9 — Read more "classics." I've pretty much restricted myself to young adult and adult books with crossover-appeal. I want to read more classics, because I want to get the full affect of literature as its greatest.
10 — Get more people into reading. I've gotten one person into reading: my best friend. My goal is to get more people into reading, because I think everybody should enjoy reading at some level. I think everybody could "get into" reading with the right book!
