1. Read everything Agatha Christie ever had published.
As Chami will tell you, I have a
2. Reach 500 followers
As of right now, we have 68 followers here on our blog which is amazing considering we never really expected to even reach 10 followers. That being said, I'd love to reach 500 followers so we could host a big giveaway and whatnot, which really we could do at any number but 500 seems...logical, for some reason.
3. Have my own home-library
Currently, I live at home with my parents and brother and despite the fact my books take up most of the space on all six bookshelves in our house, I still do not have enough room! Like any book lover, I hope one day to have my own home library with floor to ceiling bookshelves filled with all my books.
4. Meet more authors
I consider myself pretty lucky in the sense that I've got to meet quite a few authors- Maggie Stiefvater, Alyson Noel, Jay Kristoff, Duncan Lay and (my personal favourite) Nansi Kunze, are among some of them. I'd still love to meet more authors though- I don't have any preferences or anything, I just want to meet some more awesome YA authors!
5. Read The Song of Ice and Fire series
I admit, I'm one of those people who had yet to get to The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. I have started Game of Thrones and I got about 100 pages in (I was really liking it) and I already own the second book, but I just haven't gotten to them yet. I haven't even seen past season one of the show!
6. Work in a bookstore or a library
This actually hasn't always been a dream of mine, in fact this is a very recent goal. Recently, I've been looking into volunteering at nearby libraries or at bookish events but getting a part-time job at a bookstore would be amazing.
7. Host a giveaway
This one is a little strange, we've hosted plenty of giveaways for authors here but I'd like to be able to host our own giveaway with the prize as the winner's choice from Book Depository, or maybe even an Australian giveaway so I can include some awesome bookmarks and whatnot.
8. Read all of Charles Dickens' works
This is a similar sort of thing to number one on this list. I absolutely love Dickens, so of course I want to read all of his works too. I'd also really like to watch the many adaptations that go along with his novels- 50th watching of BBC's Great Expectations (2011), here I come!
9. Attend more book events
I am literally always on the lookout for book events where I live. Unfortunately, there aren't really that many here but I'd still love to attend more. That being said, this one is kind of a cheat because I'm already planning to attend two more this year already!
10. Participate in a book swap
I love giving books to people so I think doing a book swap would be awesome. I know quite a few people do this in America, but I have yet to find anyone in Australia who is interested but hopefully I will soon!
So that's it for my first Top Ten Tuesday! I had a lot of fun doing this, and I'll see you all this time next week for my next list.
