2017 Bookish Bucket List | August Update

2017

I have done this now for the past three years and have been decently successful with it.. This year I have set a lot of goals for myself and really want to throw myself back into the book community and blogging world. The past year off has left me wanting so much from books because I have missed the atmosphere and love of books.  

♠ Read at least 100 books. I have a challenge I have created for myself and its the year I take on some completed series. [I have only read 24 so far which is nothing for how far we are into the year]

♠ Read and Complete 6 Series. This goes along with the challenge I have am creating. There are so many out that I have yet to pick up and its crazy. [I am still only at one series completed but I am working on a few]

♠ Read at least three daunting books. This is a repeat from last year.I feel like I am always so intrigued and interested in the huge books, but never get around to reading them because they are intimidating. (I am counting this as over 500 pages.) [I have kind of been avoiding these. There are so many I have that I really want to read, but reading has been a struggle so I have been trying to stick to shorter books]

♠ Read 45 books from my TBR. I just recently moved and don’t have my books. I have been going to the library and with that it give way to an endless array of books. I really want to make sure I am still reading books that I had actually purchased. [I am slowly making a dent in my massive TBR pile with 18 read so far]

♠ Read at least 5 Non-Fiction Books. I started doing this last year and really enjoyed it. I love learning more and I have a lot I am interested in. [ I have been able to complete 2 so far and they were absolutely wonderful!]

♠ Start New Blog Series. I really want to work harder on developing my blog. There are many things I participate in that are created by other bloggers and I really want to come up with something that is completely my own and get others involved in! [I have started a few that I am hoping to work on and create some more posts for.]

Challenge: Synopsis Rewrite

For this challenge, all you have to do is rewrite the synopsis of a book from another character’s point of view. Make it their story instead. If you post on social media, be sure to use #synopsisrewritebob20 to share.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Today of all days the White Rabbit did not have the time for silly little girls. He only had one errand to run, not get chased by a young girl, or have a spot of tea. With his pocket watch destroyed he has no sense of time. Being late today would have his head.

I am not good at this at all, but would love to see others!
