Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s top ten topics are top ten bookish goals for 2013.

Reading:

1) Keep up with readings for school. I’m finishing up my last semester of my masters degree and this semester it’s full time student teaching plus a class, so I’ll have academic readings for school and I’ll need to re-read what the kids are reading, plus I’ll need to read what the kids are writing!

2) Read a fun book every other week. Whether it’s young adult, fantasy or any other genre, I just don’t want to stop reading for fun. Sometimes the school reading kind of swallows my love for reading and I don’t want that to happen.

3) Read a classic on the alternate weeks. This will cross over with book one quite a bit. I read a lot of classics last year while prepping for the GRE Lit test, and while I still don’t love reading them as much as I love reading regular books, I appreciate the regular books more now. I make connections in books and movies that I didn’t before, even though as an English major, I’d read most of those books before. The classics are classic for a reason and I want to keep that knowledge fresh.

4) Read to my daughter every day. I was pretty good about this up until really recently. I should read to her daily.

5) Family reading. Again, this is something we did a lot for most of the year that we’ve fallen away from as our schedule picks up. I read books out loud to my husband and daughter every night before bed. It was fun, and now my husband knows what I’m talking about when I start chatting about my favorite books.

Writing:

6) Work in the Persephone universe every day. I’ve got a ton more books to write there and I need to get to work!

7) Work on something else a little every day. Doesn’t matter what.

8) Try to write a short story every month. I’d really like to get into a few anthologies.

9) Keep up with this blog.

10) Keep up with my school writing. I have a big portfolio due at the end of the semester…

Theres my ten purely bookish goals for 2013. Let’s see how I do.
