TTT #19: Top Ten Things On My Bookish Bucket List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish.

My Bookish Bucket List (In No Particular Order)

1. I would love to meet a few more authors since I've only met Veronica Roth so far, and hopefully next time I won't make a complete fool of myself. Some authors I would like to meet: J.K. Rowling, Deborah Harkness, Sarah J. Maas, and Rick Riordan.

2. I hope to write more books. (I've written one not so great novel that I am currently editing, but I would like to write more.)

3. I WILL GO TO BEA AT LEAST ONCE. BEA will be in Chicago in 2016 and I will 100% be attending that one at least. I want to meet some of my blogger friends... and getting some books wouldn't be the worse thing!

4. I want my very own library. That's right, I currently own only two bookcases, but I also only live in a one bedroom apartment. My husband promises me that when we get a house (hopefully next year) I can turn one of the bedrooms into my office/library, which means a lot more than two bookcases. I would prefer a Belle library.

5. I will visit Hemingway's House. I live in Illinois and my senior project/class in college was all about Hemingway and I loved it. What am I waiting for?

6. One of my dreams is to stay at a hotel for literary fans. Any of these will do.

7. I want to visit a famous library. The New York Public Library or Gladstone's Library would be perfect.

8. I would love to see my blog grow and prosper over the next few years. 

9. I want my dream bookish job. I work part-time at a library now and I really enjoy it, but my dream is to become a book editor or maybe a librarian if I can find the means to get a library science degree, or I would just love to be a full time writer. 

10. I want to visit and enjoy a lovely dinner at a bookish restaurant. Poe's Tavern or BookBar would be excellent choices.

**I would have added that I also want to read all the books, but I figured that was a given. :D


  1. OMG #3!! I had no idea BEA would be in Chicago...I totally want to go in 2016!

  2. Great list! I was on track to doing #9 and had my application filled out for a library science program (at Wayne State University), but then after looking into it some more I realized how few librarian positions are actually available. Maybe someday though, when my kids are grown and out of the house I'll look into it again :)

    1. Thanks for following!

      I agree with you, there are not that many librarian jobs, and getting a degree is expensive. :/

  3. Own library would be so awesome - I had it on my list as well. :) Let's hope we both get one in the future! Happy reading!

  4. I want to own a library so bad! Meeting Veronica Roth had to rock!

    1. Thanks for following! :) Hopefully one day we will have our own libraries!

  5. #4 is definitely the best part of buying a house :)

    1. The day I get to share you pictures of my shelves will be a happy day! I loved when you showed me yours

  6. You have some interesting things on your list!

  7. I obvs want to read all the books too :)

    These are all awesome bookish goals. It will obviously be harder for me to get to BEA when it moves to Chicago but I'm already considering making a mini vacation out of it so I will cross my fingers that we get to meet there.

    And those literary-inspired hotels? Yes. Yes Yes. *adds this to my bucket list* And I can't wait to have a little library/reading room of my own. I wouldn't mind Belle's. Not one bit :)

    1. One day I shall meet you Nicole...I swear...we will figure it out. :)

      I saw those hotels and husband even agreed to take me to one at some point!
