Top 10 Things On My Bookish Bucket List

This week, the theme for Top Ten Tuesday over at The Broke and the Bookish is the top ten items on your bookish bucket list.

Write a book.
One day I will finally sit down and get started. First I need my winning idea!
Meet a favorite author.
The only author I've ever met was Ann M. Martin of Babysitter's Club fame when I was a little kid. That was amazing -- and I still have my signed Super Special -- but I suspect meeting an author as an adult would be a whole different kind of experience.
 Visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando and Platform 9 3/4 in London.
But I have to wait until the Gringott's part of Universal Studios opens this summer!
Read every single one of the books I own.
...and I have a LOT.
Read a book on every continent, and read books set on each of the seven continents.
This goes hand-in-hand with my lifetime bucket list goal of visiting every continent.
See a professional play or musical based on a book.
I haven't seen a play since high school, and that was a high school drama production. The only professional play I've seen was "The Diary of Anne Frank" as a middle school field trip, and that will always be marred by the memory of immature 13-year-old boys mocking poor Anne.
Take a cruise to Antarctica -- as inspired by "Where'd You Go, Bernadette."
I really have no desire to take any kind of cruise except this one. The cruise in the book sounded absolutely amazing -- a once-in-a-lifetime adventure!
Go to Paris and eat, eat, eat -- as inspired by "My Life in France" by Julia Child and "Paris in Love" by Eloisa James, among others.
I have got to get a real hot chocolate!
Visit Multnomah Falls in Oregon -- as inspired by the movie version of "Twilight."
This is the waterfall in the background of the baseball scene.
Be able to say I've honestly given a fair shot to every genre of book, from bestseller to non-fiction to smutty romance to graphic novel, and be able to recommend good reads from every category.
And stop being a book snob while I'm at it.


  1. It must have been fun to meet Ann M. Martin as a child! Great list!

  2. AH! I would have LOVED to meet Ann M. Martin as a kid! I thought she was so awesome! And OMG you have to go to The Magical World of Harry Potter. I went last year and I want to go back SO BADLY!

  3. Love your #10-great goal to work towards :)

  4. Ohh #5!! That would be totally brilliant. Also, it's so cool that you got to meet Ann Martin. Writing a book isn't a personal goal of mine, but I think it's GREAT that it's one of yours!


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
