Top Ten Tuesday: My Top Eight Bookish Goals for 2023

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely Jana at The Artsy Reader Girl.


I cannot imagine life without books and being able to read. Sometimes setting goals is a great motivator and helps me step outside my comfort zone. Sometimes it is just what I need. Other times, I prefer less structure and need more freedom. This is one of those years where I will be keeping the rules loose, setting realistic expectations, ones I can meet and maybe even go beyond--with no pressure. My Top Ten Tuesday topic is my Top Ten Eight Bookish Goals for 2023.

Declutter my bookshelves.

Organize my bookshelves.

Read at least one nonfiction/fiction pairing.

Continue catching up on my series reading project.

Read a classic novel that has been on my to read list for longer than I can remember.

Read at least three books my daughter recommends to me.

Complete my reading challenges for the year.

Read what I want, whether that be TBR books, review books, borrowed books or what have you.


 What are your bookish goals for this year?

  2. I love that you want to read more books your daughter recommends. Mine keeps pushing creepy books or manga. The manga I am willing to try, just not the ones she offers.

  4. I really relate to the read whatever you want...as I started blogging I'm finding I pressure myself to read certain kinds of books just to review them. Then I start feeling frustrated! And that's sucking the joy out of my hobby. Great list!

  5. I'm also trying to catch up on my series reading this year, or rather finish some of my unfinished series, and of course, I always have my Goodreads Challenge every year.

  7. Excellent list! Decluttering can be so hard, but worth it in the end.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  8. I think to achieve the list you will need to break it down into smaller goals or ones with more detail but it's a good list.

  9. My only goal (if you can call it that) is to continue to read what I want, when I want. A couple years ago I stepped away from reading challenges, arcs, TBR's, etc. and focused entirely on reading whatever I feel like reading on no one's schedule but my own. I've been a much happier reader ever since. :) Good luck with your goals!

  10. Nice goals. Explain to me what a nonfiction/fiction pairing is...that sounds really intriguing! https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2023/01/top-ten-tuesday-my-2023-bookish-goals.html

  11. Excellent goals! I'm hoping to read from my "Chunkster" stacks (all over 500 pages each), as well as all the new books I received in the past year. Then... tackle those backlist titles that have been languishing on my shelves since before our move in 2017.

  13. Love your goals! My bookshelf probably could use a declutter but I'm scared to touch it lol.

  14. The fiction/nonfiction pairing sounds fun - I'm looking forward to see what books you choose. All the best for your goals!

  15. I like the looser goals and these seem really doable. Good luck with it all!

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

  19. These are all fantastic goals! I have my daughter home for much of this year and can already tell that she is going to have a big influence on this years reading.

  20. I only have one bookish goal and that is to read more. And more. ;)
