Our Bookish Resolutions for 2018

A banner with the words The Top Ten Tuesday List on it.This Top Ten Tuesday was to list our Bookish Resolutions for 2018. Now, some of these you’ll have seen in our year end wrap-ups and stuff, but some will be new to you!  Feel free to tell us what your bookish resolutions are as well!



Our Bookish Resolutions for 2018

  1. We solemnly swear to read more monster books. Because monsters need love too.
  2. We promise to be a bit more outspoken about subjects that bother us when it comes to our genres.
  3. We give you assurance that we will continue to run away screaming at the sight of love triangles and covers with 6-pack abs on them.
  4. We swear a sacred oath to Coolthulhu that we shan’t neglect our small press authors during our quest to relax.
  5. We pledge that we will continue to mock cliches as they so deserve.
  6. We give you our word of honor that we will continue try to find interesting books to include in our Biweekly Bulletin recommendations.
  7. We vow that our desire to have all the books will never overcome our honesty to tell you when books suck.
  8. We guarantee that we’re going to make at least something of an effort to interact more with our bookish peers, instead of being the nerdy wallflowers.
  9. We offer our affirmation that the bad puns and gutter-minded remarks will continue to rise up when you’re least expecting them.
  10. We pinky promise to bring you reviews of an expanding variety of science fiction and horror formats such as webtoons,  and visual novels (not the same as graphic novels).

Well, Top Ten Tuesday has officially migrated over to That Artsy Reader Girl. Thank you, Broke and Bookish, for all the topics you brought us! You gave many of us fodder for a blank Tuesday morning.

What are your bookish resolutions?

  1. Listen, I feel you so much on #3. I don’t mind love triangles, (I’m a sucker for some scandalousness) but although I love reading romance, I can’t stand abs on a cover! I’m a big fan of horror movies, but for some reason I haven’t picked up much from the horror genre as far as books. If you have any recommendations, definitely let me know! This applies for sci-fi as well, I’m trying to get into it more, and from the look of your blog, you can definitely help me out lol! It’s nice meeting you as well 🙂

    1. I have lots of recommendations 🙂 Our review lists are organized by rating, so all the 5 stars are easily viewable. I would go straight there.

      BUT if you tell me what your favorite type of horror is, I can give you some more personal recommendations 🙂

  2. I have seen #8 on my own blog, so yes, people, Lilyn and GracieKat do actually come visit other blogs.

    In light of Laurie’s comments, I was trying to think of the most inappropriate monster I find sexually appealing. And then whether I wanted to admit it. I mean, having a thing for Yog-Sothoth puts me in rivalry with deformed albino Lavinia Whateley. This is not something one brags about, well, except to other Lovecraftians with their pedestrian love of Cthulhu (present company excepted). So, is there a hot Weeping Angel out there?

      1. I suggest a post in which you and GracieKat each list your favorite five inappropriately sexy monsters. Or, if that would be . . . ah, too REVEALING, then a list of five appropriately sexy monsters each. (Limit one example of any given monster on each list; you’re not allowed to get away with five vampires!)

          1. Thank you. And since fair is fair, I will tackle the idea myself. I’ll give myself a week to answer it. Or the day after you two do, whichever comes first!
