Top Ten Tuesday – My Reading/Blogging Goals for 2020

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is actually supposed to be Bookish Discoveries I Made In 2019 (these could be books, authors, blogs, websites, apps, products, etc.).  I wasn’t really feeling that topic so I decided today would be a good day to talk about my reading and blogging goals instead.  Those goals are driven by things that happened (or probably more accurately, didn’t happen) in 2019, so it’s not totally off topic, right?

Anyway, I don’t have a ton of goals because I honestly just want to have fun and enjoy my reading and the bookish community in 2020, but there are still a few things I’d really like to focus on in my bookish life.

 

* * * * *

My Reading and Blogging Goals for 2020

 

1)  My number one goal this year is to read more of the books I own.  ARCs are great of course, but I have so many unread books piling up around me that I don’t really even have room for more at this point.  Something’s got to give.  To that end, the only challenge I’m taking part in aside from Goodreads is the Beat the Backlist Challenge.  I’ve set a goal there of reading at least 50 books from my backlist so here’s hoping I put a serious dent in my unread shelves. (Of course so that I can make room for more unread books, lol).

 

2)  I really want to only participate in blog tours where I have already requested a review book.  As of right now, I have three more blog tours on my calendar for January and February but they are specifically for books I had already been approved for and I really want to stick with this so that I don’t accidentally over commit and create stress for myself.

 

3)  Finish or at least make major progress in the following series:

  • Throne of Glass
  • An Ember in the Ashes
  • The Nevernight Chronicle
  • Arc of a Scythe
  • Red Winter
  • The Wrath and the Dawn
  • The Folk of the Air
  • Cursebreakers

 

4)  Aside from wrapping up those series, I actually really want to focus more on standalones this year.

 

5)  I really want to focus more on my Bookstagram account.  Right now I typically only post once, maybe twice a week so I’d like to bump that up to 2-3 times a week.  I’d also like to focus more on actually interacting more with the bookstagram community.  Sometimes I’m just so short for time that I just ‘like’ photos without commenting and I really want to make more time for commenting since I think it’s important.

 

6)  Try books by at least five authors who have been on my TBR for years.  My priorities are as follows:

  • Martha Wells
  • Becky Chambers
  • Ilona Andrews
  • Louise Penny
  • TJ Klune

 

7)  I’m not officially signing up for the Discussion challenge this year, but I would still like to aim for at least 12 discussion posts this year.  I always feel bad because I love doing the discussion posts, but when I’m short on time, those are always the ones I kick to the curb since they take longer to do.

8)  I really want to be more consistent when it comes to blog hopping.  I’m still debating the best method to achieve this – devoting specific days to it vs. just trying to squeeze in a bit here and there as I have time, but I need to figure out a better system for myself.  Right now I’m just consistently inconsistent.

9)  Blogging ahead more is another big goal of mine. I doubt I’ll ever be one who has weeks and weeks’ worth of posts ready to go, but I’d love to at least get to a point where I get all of my posts for the upcoming week ready to go over the weekend.  I get so stressed when I wait until the last minute to work on posts.

10) Finally, my overall reading goal for 2020 is to read at least 150 books. I managed to read 153 in 2019 and that was with 2 1/2 George R.R. Martin bricks thrown in the mix, so I’m hoping 150 will be doable this year, especially since I have now fully embraced audiobooks.

This week’s TTT topic is Most Anticipated Book Releases for the First Half of 2020.  I have so many anticipated releases for the first half of the year that it was nearly impossible to pick just ten.  The ones I’ve chosen to feature this week are new releases from favorite authors, new books in some of my favorite series, and a MacBeth retelling that sounds really good.

Happy reading, everyone!  I can’t wait to read all of your most anticipated lists!

Top Ten Tuesday – Best Books I Read in 2019

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Best Books I Read in 2019.  I had a great reading year so it was tough to narrow down to a list of favorites.  I’m actually sharing my Top 13 today because I couldn’t narrow to just 10 favorites.  In looking at my year, the one thing that really struck me was that only one fantasy novel made my Best Of list, while several romances did make the cut.  That is a huge change for me and very symbolic of the slump I was in this year when it came to fantasy.  I’m thrilled that I had so many great romance reads since that’s usually an area where I struggle, but I really hope I have better luck with fantasy in 2020.

Happy New Year, everyone!  Here’s to a great reading year for us all in 2020!

Top Ten Tuesday – Reading Fails: 10 Books I Totally Planned to Read This Year But Probably Won’t

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is another Freebie.  Since we’re fast approaching the end of the year, I’ve been reflecting on the books I’ve read this year, and even more so, on the books I had every intention of reading this year but somehow still didn’t get to.  I know I still have a few weeks left to try to make this list happen but with the holidays and the January 2020 ARCs I’m starting to work my way through, I just don’t think these reads are going to happen before the end of 2019.  I definitely still plan to read all of them though so I’m sure these titles will end up as part of my backlist challenge next year.  While I was compiling this list, I also did a little “spring” cleaning and purged about 40 titles from my Goodreads “Want to Read” Shelf because I’ve just completely lost interest in them.  I’m sure it won’t be long before I find 40 more to add in their places, but it felt good to finally get rid of some titles that I’ve been scrolling past for 4-5 years.

Top Ten Tuesday – My Ten Favorite Movies to Watch During the Holiday Season

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is actually Holiday Reads (Books you love reading during the holiday season.).  I really did try to do this week’s topic, but I honestly couldn’t think of ten books that I like to read during the holiday season.  I’m not a big re-reader anyway so A Christmas Carol is the only book that really came to mind aside from children’s books, which I haven’t read since my son outgrew most of my favorites.  So yeah, I ended up going rogue this week because even though I’m not a big re-reader, it has always been a tradition in my family to watch lots of Christmas movies together every year and I have a list of perennial favorites.  The holidays just aren’t complete if we haven’t watched all of these.  Some are childhood favorites that I just can’t resist watching every year and some are newer favorites, basically movies that my son loves that have been incorporated into our yearly tradition.

 

* * * * *

10 Favorite Movies to Watch During the Holiday Season

 

1. NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION

I’m sure there are some that find this movie tacky and appalling and completely inappropriate for Christmas, but I’m not one of them.  This is my all-time favorite Christmas movie.  I’ve watched it every year since it came out in 1989, practically have the entire movie memorized, and I still laugh at it just as much now as I did when I first watched it all those years ago.

 

* * * * *

 

2. MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET

I enjoy the original version of this film too, but this one from 1994 starring Richard Attenborough, Mara Wilson, and Elizabeth Perkins is the one my family watches every year.  I’ve always loved the premise of this story, where a lawyer and a six-year old girl must prove that a man claiming to be Santa Claus is the real thing, and we all love Mara Wilson from Mrs. Doubtfire  and Matilda, so this film is a great fit for us.

 

* * * * *

 

3. HOME ALONE

Like Christmas Vacation, Home Alone is a movie that I’ve watched every year since it first came out and it’s still just as funny now as it was the first time I saw it.  Both Home Alone and Home Alone 2 (mainly because of my obsession with NYC) are staples in my family’s holiday movie lineup.

 

* * * * *

 

4. IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE

Now I have to confess that until I got married, I had never watched this film.  It’s my husband’s favorite though so he introduced me to it and we have watched it together every year since.  It truly is a classic.

 

* * * * *

 

5. A CHRISTMAS STORY

Talk about your timeless classics.  It never gets old watching poor little Ralphie trying to convince everyone that a Red Ryder BB gun is the perfect Christmas gift for him.  “I triple dog dare you” to watch it!

 

* * * * *

 

6. THE SANTA CLAUSE

This is another of my son’s favorites that has made it into our holiday viewing every year.  He loves all three of the movies, but the first one is my favorite.

 

* * * * *

 

7. THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS

This is yet another of my son’s favorites (He loves Jack Skellington and Oogie Boogie) and Tim Burton’s films always fascinate me anyway, so I’m game to watch it every year, especially because the animation is so impressive.

 

* * * * *

 

8. A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Several versions of the classic Dickens tale get a lot of play in my house every year at Christmas.  I have a soft spot for Mickey’s Christmas Carol and the Disney version pictured above, but I also really like the version where Patrick Stewart plays Scrooge.

 

* * * * *

 

9. CHILDHOOD FAVORITES

I know these aren’t actually movies, but it’s my list so whatever.  Anyway, I don’t know about you guys, but I still love to watch all of my old childhood favorites.  Charlie Brown and the Grinch are my favorites, but I also love Rudolph and Frosty.  Sometimes I’m the only one in my house who watches these, but they just give me such nostalgia which is a huge part of the holiday season for me.

 

* * * * *

 

10. ALL THE HALLMARK CHANNEL MOVIES!

Yeah, this one is all me too and it’s a recent obsession going back just a couple of years.  I pretty much have the Hallmark Channel on in the background every day from Thanksgiving through New Year’s. My husband just rolls his eyes at me, but I love the warm fuzzy vibe that all of the Hallmark holiday films have.  Plus it’s fun when some of my favorite actors pop up in the occasional film.  So far this season I’ve seen Liz Mitchell from Lost, Elizabeth Henstridge from Marvel: Agents of SHIELD, and Lacy Chabert from Party of Five.

 

 

Question:  Do you have any favorite holiday films that you watch every year?

Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Reads to Dive into over the Thanksgiving Holiday

This week’s TTT topic is a Thankful Freebie in honor of this week’s Thanksgiving holiday.  I couldn’t really think of anything specifically ‘thankful’ to post about that I haven’t done in previous years so instead, I’m going to share some books I think would make fabulous reads to dive into over the long holiday weekend.  Had enough of your family?  Don’t want to get caught up in the madness of the Black Friday shopping ritual?  I’ve got you covered!

My list is heavy on what I consider to be fun and romantic reads, and I’m very heavy on socially awkward, introverted main characters since I’ll be reveling in my own social awkwardness the entire holiday weekend, haha.  But I’ve also included a few more serious reads, including a thriller and some science fiction. And finally, to help get you in the holiday spirit since Christmas is right around the corner, I’ve included a favorite holiday read that has a wonderful focus on sisters and family.

Top Ten Tuesday – Ten Changes in My Reading Life

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Changes In My Reading Life (Maybe you like different genres or topics, maybe you read faster than you used to, maybe you only like standalones now).  This was a pretty easy topic for me because my reading habits have definitely changed a lot over the years and most especially since I started blogging.  Here are ten changes that came to mind right away as I considered this topic.

 

* * * * *

10 Changes In My Reading Life

 

1. My books read per year count has increased dramatically, especially since I started blogging.  

I used to set my Goodreads goal at 40-45 books a year and sometimes struggled to reach that goal. In the past three years, however, I’ve now read close to 100 books a year.  This year has been my best reading year by far with a total of 131 books as of the time of me writing this post.

 

2. I read more new releases.

This change is a double-edged sword because while I love read ARCs and all of the latest releases, my backlist has gotten out of control from where I’ve neglected it so much in recent years.  One of my goals for 2020 is to really increase the number of backlist books I read.

 

3. I have a new appreciation for Romance.

I attribute this change to finally choosing better books that feature romances. I apparently sucked at picking them on my own, but thanks to some great recs from my fellows bloggers, Sam and Tanya in particular, I’m having much better luck with romance reads than ever before.

 

4. I read less classics.

I have mixed feelings about this change too because I actually enjoy reading them and still have a list of ones I hope to get to at some point.  I’ve just pushed them aside in favor of newer books for a few years now.

 

5. I read more ebooks than printed books.

This is probably one of the biggest changes in my reading habits because I was very old school for a while there. I completely rejected anything to do with ebooks. No particular reason other than I’m stubborn as a mule and sometimes hate change, lol. I’m all about the ebooks now, to the extent that sometimes even if I own a paper copy of the book, I’ll still get the ebook because I love the portability of it.  Those behemoth George R.R. Martin books immediate come to mind.

 

6. I now embrace audiobooks.  

I know, right?  This old schooler has really gotten on the technology bandwagon in 2019, lol.  The first time I tried audiobooks, it was back when you could only get them on CD.  I’m lazy and that was just too much work for me.  I also struggled because the narrator’s voice was so slow.  Enter e-audiobooks and apps where you can speed up the narration and color me sold on audiobooks!

 

7.  Reading isn’t just for nighttime anymore.

This one is definitely a change that took place once I started blogging.  For me, reading used to pretty much exclusively happen at night right before bedtime.  Even though I’d always carry a book around with me, I rarely made time to read during the day.  That all changed when I started blogging and now I try to sneak a few pages here and there at every opportunity throughout the day.

 

8. I buy more books.

Part of this is just due to the fact that I’m better off financially now than in the past, but it’s also because I consider myself a book collector as well.  I want that home library feeling where I’m surrounded by all of my favorite books.

 

9. Less re-reading.

I have a few favorites that I still like to re-read occasionally, but by and large, I rarely find myself re-reading these days.  I think this is mainly just lack of time because I’m reading and reviewing so many new releases.  I even tried to do a re-reading challenge a couple of years ago and failed miserably at it.

 

10. I read more seasonal/holiday themed books now than ever before. 

With the exception of A Christmas Carol, up until recently, I’ve never had much interest in seasonal or holiday reads, but I’ve developed an appreciation for them in recent years.  Like with so many other changes I’ve noticed, I attribute this to getting some great recs from bloggers and realizing that holiday reads, especially Christmas ones, can be all kind of fun.  This change has also been accompanied by a newfound love for Hallmark Christmas movies.  Maybe I’m just the Grinch and my heart has grown three sizes lately, lol.

This week’s TTT topic is Favorite Bookmarks.  I love this topic because I collect bookmarks and am always looking for new ones to add to my collection.  That said, I’m only the person who walks around using receipts and napkins to mark my place in whatever book I’m reading because I don’t want to mess up my beautiful bookmarks.  (Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this, lol!)

Anyway, what I’ve decided to share this week are not my favorite bookmarks, but instead are bookmarks I’ve seen on Etsy and would love to add to my collection.  Hint, hint to anyone in my family who is looking for gift ideas. 😉
