#SixForSunday: Bookish Resolutions

Six for Sunday

Six for Sunday is a weekly blog post by Steph @ A Little But A Lot where you share 6 books that to share to go with that Sunday’s prompt. To learn more, click here.

Do you have any bookish resolutions this year?

A while ago, I listed all my bookish resolutions in my January Happenings post. I wasn’t teetering on whether to do a Six for Sunday post as well. But I like doing these posts, so I’ll just list the top 6 that are imperative for me to accomplish.

  1. Read more books I own (before buying a boat-load more!)
  2. Go to the library more often (because it’s my happy place)
  3. Be a more active blogger (because talking about books is fun)
  4. Donate books (and share the joy of reading)
  5. Finish that first draft of WIP I keep talking about (because if not now then when?)
  6. Read more back-listed titles (and not push them back again and again)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

As Always, Happy Reading!!!

Bookish Memes Top 10 Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday: Resolutions/Hopes for 2021 (bookish or not!)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish, but is now run by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy Tuesday, Bookworms!

Do you have any bookish or non-bookish resolutions for 2021?

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about resolutions. After the turbulence of 2020, I think we all have some sort of resolution to make the new year and future better for ourselves and others.

My list is all bookish resolutions; mostly things I want to do more of:

1) Read more for the enjoyment and not for the numbers. To expand on something from my January Happenings post, I have so many books I want to get through and high goals I want to meet that sometimes I forget about the reading journey. I’m going to try be more relaxed with my tbrs.

2) Read more books by Black authors. I don’t read enough of these and 2020 was a great year with a lot of recommendations of books by black authors and/or with black main characters.

3) Read more books from my bookshelf than buy. This is a work in progress as I’ve already bough (with birthday/Christmas gift cards!) about 8 books.

4) Post/Share about books I read long ago that I really loved. There are books I don’t talk about much or not enough about that I think others may be interested in. But mostly, I just want to gush and fangirl more about books.

5) Re-read some of my favorite books. This goes hand-in-hand with the previous item. There are several books I want to re-read that I did not get to last year, so I’m making a point to for this year, especially books by Tamora Pierce.

6) Read more Middle Grade. I barely read any middle grade last year. I’ve added more really great-sounding ones since then to my tbr that I would like to read.

7) Write more reasonable/doable/realistic tbr lists. I tend to put more books on my monthly tbr lists than I have time for. I need to be more mindful when it comes to those.

8) Read more indie authors. Over the past couple of months I’ve added a lot of books by (as far as I could tell) indie authors. I’m thinking of doing a month (either next month or after) of just indie titles.

9) Read more LGBTQ+ books. I had so many planned reads that I never got to last year so I’m making a point to do so this year, especially underrepresented identities.

10) Find and read more fantasy standalone novels. This resolution stems from my love of all things Sorcery of Thorns. Standalones that are fantasy seem to be a rarity, so if you have any recommendations please let me know.
