The Bookish Bucketlist!

(.gif not mine)

Being a Book Blogger is fun, right? Who agrees with me?Β And as a newbie blogger, I want some goals that can help me get through every post. I think it’s great that while you’re having fun, you’re also accomplishing some things. Β So, I decided to have a Bucket List. A Bookish Bucketlist to be exact. I already have one actually, way before I moved here in WordPress. But I only have it on paper and I decided to share it also here, on my blog. And to you guys as well! πŸ™‚ So here it is.. MY BOOKISH BUCKET LIST.

(As I accomplish a goal, I will of course cross it out here and maybe write a note or a post about it. So in other words: This will always be updated)

 

  1. Reach a follower milestone. (500, 1000, 1500, 2000…)
  2. Be someones Co-Blogger. (I blog at Cristina’s Book Reviews as well!! And it’s funnnnn)
  3. Reach 1000 followers over on Twitter. Tweet tweet! (500, 1000, 1500, 2000..)
  4. Attend a Book Signing event. (Can you believe this?! It’s just sad. So sad. I’m actually ashamed right now.)
  5. Do at least 3 Guest Posts! (If possible, in 3 different Blogs)
  6. Meet a fellow BookBlogger. (Hello there my kababayan! When’s our meet-up? :D)
  7. Host a Read-Along. (I will. Mark my words, I WILL.)
  8. For a whole month: ONLY READ A SERIES. NO STANDALONE. (HA. Probably when I’m 45 or 60)
  9. Finish the Harry Potter series and The Chronicles of Narnia. (Now this is just pathetic, I think. I’m probably the only one.)
  10. Start a BookClub (I’m still thinking a name for it. I suck at names)
  11. Lead a street team for an Author. (I love A LOT of authors to the point that it’s creepy. So I’ll probably choose an author who won’t be creeped out by me)
  12. Own at least 100 signed books (I currently have 3! OMG guys, it’s so close)
  13. Reach my 500th post!!
  14. Have a blog banner (hahahahaha huhuhu)
  15. Finish a reading challenge (any kind, without cheating!)
  16. Have a literary tattoo. (A quote maybe or a whole book passage. :P)
  17. Be quoted in a Book Blurb (I’d buy all the copies of the book when this happens!)
  18. Have my own library (if only I could meet a cursed prince and give him a kiss!!!)
  19. Reach 1000 friends on goodreads!
  20. Attend BEA (I want all those ARCs! MWAHAHAHA)
  21. Meet authors! (Anyone that I stalk.)

This ain’t done, I know that for sure. But this are the Β things that is on top of my head. Anyway, as I said above, this will always be updated so I hope you’ll come back again and celebrate with me.

I’m curious about yours, anything from your Bucket List that you want to share?

  1. I love your bucket list! Some of yours are definitely of mine!

    -Attend a Book Signing: NO ONE goes to Puerto Rico (where I live) so I’ll have to go to them
    -Meet a fellow Book Blogger: Ha. I guess meeting my co-blogger because NO ONE lives in Puerto Rico
    -Finish the Harry Potter series and The Chronicles of Narnia: I’ve only read 3 Harry Potter books and haven’t even touched Narnia
    -Own at least 100 signed books: I have 2! Aw yeah.
    -Have a literary tattoo: I actually have plans for this! I can legally get a tattoo however I don’t have the money for it! I’m gonna get a couple of them, actually.
    -Attend BEA: I’M DOING THIS NEXT YEAR. I tried to go this year but I couldn’t get a plane ticket. But in 2015, LOOK OUT WORLD. I’m going!
    -Meet Authors: Well if I go to BEA then I hope I can knock this out of my list!

    What I’m realising now is that BEA will allow me to eliminate at least 3 of my goals… which is something πŸ˜€

    Good luck on your bucketlist, Paula! πŸ™‚

    1. Awww Marianne, you have no idea how much I WANT to go to Puerto Rico. Maybe when I get filthy rich and have time to travel the world, I’ll be seeing you! πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing your Bucket List with me. I want a lot of photos of you and books when you’ll be at BEA!! So exciting!

  2. I’m going to do this too as soon as I got my blogging spirit back. :))

    4. Let’s attend it together!
    5. I have a feeling that we will meet next month. Let’s confirm to Dre if the meetup is final πŸ˜€
    8. I actually like series more than standalone books. This year, my goal is to finish all the series I have started years ago and now are all published.
    9. omgosh! I hope you will like Harry Potter too. I read it when I was still young so I enjoyed it a lot.
    10. I will join! Seriously, I need more friends.

    1. 4. Yes I want to meet you and your awesome hair!!!! πŸ˜€
      5. WAIT THERE’S A MEET UP? i hope that will be planned. I’ll be the first one there! Or I’ll be fashionably late.
      8. I have a feeling you do! I actually envy you for reading the following books as soon as you finish the first one! I don’t have that kind of patience πŸ™
      9. I know I will!! (who doesn’t? :P) I’m in love with the movie as well!
      10. YAY! My very first member. Watch out for this! (seriously)

      Thanks, Irish! I cannot wait to read yours! I keep coming back at your blog, I can’t wait for your upcoming posts!

  3. Reach a follower milestone. (500, 1000, 1500, 2000…) –> Yes this is mine too! Though I think I’m just reaching for 100 now hahaha. And then I don’t care about afterwards lol.

    Reach 1000 followers over on Twitter. Tweet tweet! (500, 1000, 1500, 2000..) –> LOOK AT YOU GO! I’m so proud of you! I just started using Twitter, so I’m not as familiar with it as others. And plus I’m scared of tweeting to authors lol.

    Attend a Book Signing event. (Can you believe this?! It’s just sad. So sad. I’m actually ashamed right now.) –> SAME HERE I REALLY WANT TO GO TO ONE BUT IDK HOW TO FIND THEM.

    Meet a fellow BookBlogger. (Hello there my kababayan! When’s our meet-up? :D) —> WOW I WOULD TOTALLY MEET YOU, you know, if I didn’t live on the other side of the world. no biggie. But this is also one of my goals, one day.

    Host a Read-Along. (I will. Mark my words, I WILL.) –> AND I WILL JOIN

    Finish the Harry Potter series and The Chronicles of Narnia. (Now this is just pathetic, I think. I’m probably the only one.) –> FINISH THEM. Though I’ve never read the Chronicles of Narnia.

    Start a BookClub (I’m still thinking a name for it. I suck at names) –> Muhahah I have one at college I co-run. But I would love to have one at my house, with other YA lovers, but IDK.

    Own at least 100 signed books (I currently have 3! OMG guys, it’s so close) –> SO CLOSE. My goal is to have one.

    Reach my 500th post!! –> YES! I’m about to reach my 100th πŸ˜€

    Have a literary tattoo. (A quote maybe or a whole book passage. :P) –> OOooooo this is a good one, I’m so indecisive when it comes to tattoos, so I would still be thinking when I’m like, 90. πŸ˜›

    Be quoted in a Book Blurb (I’d buy all the copies of the book when this happens!) –> LIKE THE ACKNOWLEDGMENTS SECTION????? WOW ME TOO.

    Reach 1000 friends on goodreads! –> I am friends with you I think that’s all you need. Just me.

    Attend BEA (I want all those ARCs! MWAHAHAHA) –> UGH ME TOO. But I live closer to NYC. Let’s find a way to go together lol.

    Meet authors! (Anyone that I stalk.) –> MEET AUTHORS YES ME TOO.

    And then there’s my bucket list, and the only one I can think of that you didn’t put on here, is to WIN A GIVEAWAY. I know it’s selfish, but I really want to, I never have before hahaha.

    1. You have the best comments, you know that?! <333 I love reading yours Val. And ugghhh, how can I forget, WIN IN A GIVEAWAY! Can I steal that?! :p

  4. Yeah, it’s fun being a book blogger. The community is great! Oh lol, you never attended a book signing event?? But but…Okay, I’m calm now.
