Birthday Bucket List – October

Hi all,

Autumn is here and it’s certainly brought the colder weather with it! If you are a regular follower then you will know that I created a bucket list to complete this year because I am now officially 30! I had to revise it due to COVID-19 but I’m still making good progress. Shall we see what I crossed off this month?

  1. Buy a lottery ticket
  2. Read 100 books So far I have read 87 books!
  3. Listen to an audio book
  4. Sign up to a book subscription service
  5. Complete the 500 piece jellybean puzzle that I started just before Christmas
  6. Read the Philip Pullman ‘His Dark Materials’ Series
  7. Take part in the 20 Books of Summer reading challenge and read the full 20 (instead of the usual 10-15
  8. Take a yoga class
  9. Own 500 books – My total so far is 490! Only 10 to go, something tells me this one will be done before Christmas!
  10. Cross off all prompts on my Beat The Backlist Bingo Card!
  11. See a psychic
  12. Walk 13 miles (half marathon)
  13. Be debt free
  14. Have £1000 in savings
  15. Blog once a weekI am definitely keeping up with this one. Last month I posted a blog nearly every other day!
  16. Go to see a show
  17. Keep my tax return up to date every month
  18. Remain in the green zone for the Cheapskate Reading Challenge I managed to add another 10 points this month!
  19. Master a Cheese and Spaghetti Souflee
  20. Read a book by an author that is new to me each month – This month I read books by 6 new authors.
  21. Watch Game of Thrones – We are still on the first series!
  22. Read all of the Harry Potter series – I have finally finished the series and I am so pleased that I read it.
  23. Have my NetGalley Feedback ratio at 100% Current NetGalley ratio is 94%. This has increased from 76% at the start of the year. I’m so pleased to be in the 90’s. I only have 6 ARC’s left!
  24. Watch more iconic filmsNo new films this month, I’ve been enjoying my reading too much!
  25. Grow strawberries
  26. Sight see in London
  27. Go on a train
  28. Take part in a readathon
  29. Go on a motorbike
  30. Go to a sushi bar

Total 23/30

I’ve managed to cross one more off this month and I that leaves 7 to cross of the list by the end of the year. The NetGalley ratio will be my biggest achievement so I’m looking forward to completing that however I think there are definitely a few I could make some more effort with. I really need to start reading Philip Pullmans’ Dark Materials before time runs out!

What would be on your list?
