Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books with Sensory Reading Memories

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books with Sensory Reading Memories.

I’ve been reading for a long time; I picked up the Harry Potter series as a child, I picked up Twilight as a teenager, and I never really stopped picking up books. In all the years I’ve been reading there are some books that stick out so clearly in my mind, not so much because of the story or the writing but because of the memory attached to them. The topic this week is ‘Sensory Memories’, but I’ve chosen to feature my more sentimental memories when it comes to books.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I’m Thankful For

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I’m Thankful For.

When it comes down to it there are plenty of books I’m thankful for, in fact you could say I’m thankful for every book out there because I love reading, but the ones below are the ones that have the most fond memories attached to them. Some of them are likely cliché picks for this topic, and most of them are books I haven’t stopped talking about since I started blogging, but I feel that’s almost expected.

Discussion Time: Reasons I’m Thankful I Started, and Love, Reading

The very first book I can remember picking up and reading was Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Before that my parents would read fairytales to me, and after it was the Twilight series. It was the fairytales that inspired my love of magic and happily ever afters’, Twilight that inspired my love of YA fiction, and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone that inspired my overall love of reading.

Ever since I was a child there’s been so much I’ve loved about picking up a new book and diving into a new story. It’s why I’m still reading now twenty years after the first Harry Potter book was released. I have friends, and even family members, who rarely read. They pick up maybe one or two books a year, and I wonder how?!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Felt Differently About After Re-Reading

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I Felt Differently About After Re-Reading.

I’ve started re-reading a lot of books since I started blogging, and for most of them my opinions have changed after going back to them a second time. Some got better as I noticed things I missed the first time – little nuances and subtleties which made the story so much more enjoyable – some I didn’t enjoy as much as I noticed plot inaccuracies or character quirks which became more and more annoying as the story progressed, and there are a small amount which, no matter how many times I read, I will always love.
