Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists and of books and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Tuesday 16 January 2018’s #TopTenTuesday is “Bookish Resolutions/Goals” and here are mine:
1 – Continue to listen to more audiobooks, as and when I get the chance. I have made a start with some favourites from Agatha Christie that I first read years ago:
2 – Revisit some classic crime – see above.
3 – Read 120 books (see above, above!), as per my 2018 Goodreads Challenge. I have not managed my target for the past few years but I am hoping that listening to the audiobooks will help.
4 – Try to make a dent in my what-has-now-had-to-be-renamed Goodreads shelf, to read before 2020 (from ‘to read in 2018′)! Ahh, gaze at all the beautiful books:
5 – Bloody well start reading some of the great crime fiction series (that I’ve so far missed out on) at the end of this post.
6 – Catch up on some of the series I’ve been neglecting, such as Val McDermid’s Tony Hill & Carol Jordan books, Christopher Fowler’s Bryant & May cases, Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta series and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum adventures.
7 – Continue to review and to blog, and to start a JuliaPalooza blog feature called #TBIFriday. Thank Book It’s Friday! is where I will start the weekend by sharing the #booklove for some of my all-time favourites (spoiler: not ALL of them will be crime!)
8 – Actually write down the murder mystery story I’ve been carrying around in my head for about eight years…
9 – And/or try to write down one of the other murder mystery stories that I’ve had in mind for marginally less than eight years.
Let’s hope I can work towards these goals during the year. Happy 2018 everyone, and I hope you keep any resolutions or goals you have set yourself! x
