Top 10 Tuesday (33) — Bookish Goals


This is a weekly meme hosted by the good folks at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is…

Bookish Goals for 2014

  1. Finish Amulet graphic novel series. I know I said this last year, and it didn’t happen…but THIS year it will! I know that it will have to be during the summer because my students constantly have these books checked out from my classroom.
  2. Keep up with It’s Monday! What Are You Reading posts EVERY week. I usually get at least this post done, but I’ve been neglecting my blog even on that aspect lately. No more! Which leads nicely into my next goal…
  3. Post at least one review per week. At least 2 during the summer.
  4. Post a “Books Around the Room” post each week with snippets from students. I use this hashtag sometimes on Twitter, and it’s always fun to see what other students are reading in other classrooms. I think it would be fun to use snippets from conferences and reader responses to elaborate a little on what my students are reading.
  5. Read with my kids as much as possible. My Goodreads goal this year is 214 books because I’m going to count the picture books that I read with my children. In the past, I have only counted the novels that I’ve read, but I really need to work on making it more of a habit to record what my kids and I read together.
  6. Finish the Contagion level of the Dystopia 2014 challenge. I’ve “finished” this challenge in the past because I’ve read the correct number of books, but I didn’t FINISH because I didn’t complete any reviews afterward :-\
  7. Read one non-fiction picture book each month for the Non-fiction Picture Book Challenge. My poor NFPB Goodreads shelf only has about 7 books, so I’ll be looking through Alyson’s older reviews to find some good ones!
  8. Finish the Gallagher girl series. I’ve read the first two books, so I just need the last 4!
  9. Do better at pulling mentor sentences/paragraphs from each book I read. I always see them and love them…but I don’t write them down or add them on Goodreads, which I need to do.
  10. Listen to 1 audiobook each month, thanks to my Audible Christmas present! I used this month’s credit on The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom which I will start as soon as I’m done with Across the Universe.
