Top Ten Things On My Bookish Bucket List

Ah, bucket lists… love ’em or hate ’em, most people have ’em though (maybe?) There are always things I would like to do or see and I definitely have some bookish goals as well!

My Bookish Bucket List:

bucket list1. Read War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy – I have started and stopped this book several times. One day I really need to read the full thing.

2. Read every Jane Austen novel – I have read a few (Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensibility etc) but I have not read them all. I would particularly like to read Persuasion since I have loved every adaptation I have seen so far.

3. Attend BEA (Book Expo America) – I would really love to go one year but since I live in Britain the chances of it happening are pretty slim!

4. Buy a bookish item of jewellery – I saw some really pretty pieces of jewellery on Etsy that I would really like to order.

5. Have my own personal library – I would love to have a room fully dedicated to my books!

bucket list6. Find out the true gender of the Fool from Robin Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings series – I am of the personal opinion that the ambiguously gendered Fool is actually male but would love to find out for sure.

7. Have a discussion with some of my favourite authors one-on-one – I would love to meet my favourite authors! Top of my list would be Robin Hobb, Juliet Mariller, Richelle Mead, George R. R. Martin or Stephen King – to name just a few!

8. Get more signed books – I actually only have one signed book but would love to have more (preferably through meeting the authors at book-signings)!

9. Host a book club – This seems pretty unlikely since I know very few readers in real life. 🙁

10. Complete The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge – A mighty challenge but it looks pretty fun! I have only read 32 on the list so have a while to go yet!

    • Juliet Marillier is one of my all-time favourites – I just love her books!!

      Hee – think every book lover would love a Beauty and the Beast-style library! 😀

      Great list – I am a bit enamoured with Gansey myself. 😉

    • It would be amazing!! 😉

      Your bucket list is great – I would love to get round to reading every book I own but I buy way too many new books to ever be able to do that unfortunately. I can’t believe I forgot to add J.K. Rowling to my list of authors I would love to meet!

      Congratulations on getting your story published too. 😀

  1. I read all the Jane Austens one summer back to back because they were free on kindle. Unfortunately they blurred together a bit…. I think Pride and Prejudice was my favorite 🙂
