Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
I had so much fun narrowing this list down to ten choices! My bookish bucket list is something that is ever-growing (much like my TBR…); I’m always finding new fun and exciting things that I want to do/see that are bookish 🙂
1. Meet Ann M. Martin
The very first series (one could say the cause of me being continuously obsessed with series!) I ever fell in love with was The Baby Sitters Club. I spent so much of my young life reading these books, not to mention I would act out a lot of the mysteries and stories with my sister AND I was a member of The Baby Sitters Club fan club. I was obsessed, to put it mildly. I loved to read before discovering the BSC but I think this is what really set it in stone. I would absolutely SOB to meet this lady!
2. Go to a signing at a bookstore
I am such a fearful little bird. I have no idea why this terrifies me so much, but the lines, the people, the actual meeting of the author … it’s all scary for me. I have actually stood in several lines waiting to meet authors, or got to the front of stores to just leave … I will do this someday, and it will be soon 😉
3. Go to BEA
I actually wanted to go to BEA this year but we are moving the same month so it’s just not feasible. Hopefully next year I will be able to attend! It just looks SOOOO fun, there are so many bloggers, so many books, authors AND NEW YORK CITY!!!
4. Have a home library
This, again, probably won’t be for some time but I want one SO badly. We do plan on turning one of the bedrooms in our new place into a media room/reading room but it’s not entirely what I want. In the future, when we purchase our first house, I will have a spectacular library with everything I want! Beautiful artwork/wall dressings, a cozy recliner, wall to wall bookshelves, a fireplace… I could go on for hours 😛
5. Read 250 books in a year
This will not be for a while and I know that but I would love to be able to read 250 books in a single year! This could really help to dwindle down my ever-growing TBR!
6. Go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
My family plans on taking a trip to Disney World within a few years and this will be the first thing on my list, even if I have to go myself. I DREAM of going to this… it would be amazing!
7. Go bookstore hopping
This is just for mere fun honestly but it would be so fun! I will have to jump on this soon as well because indie bookstores are quickly dwindling away to the big box stores!
8. Buy my childhood favorites
I have been working on this for several years as it will take some time but there are tons of books that I read as a child that I would love to own again. I do have copies of these at my parents house but they are well-loved and my Dad keeps them well taken care of. I don’t want those books to be ruined, with all the memories that they hold but I really would like to start to build up my own collections with these same books!
9. Stay at the library hotel in NYC
Gosh, do I need to really elaborate on this? It just looks beautiful, BEAUTIFUL! And such an amazing idea!
10. Visit some of the greatest libraries in the world
There are lists upon lists filled with these but I would really to visit a few of these across the world. Or even in this continent!
What’s on your lists? Please link up, I love reading bucket lists … especially bookish ones 🙂
