Top Ten Tuesday| Under The Christmas Tree

Hey everyone! This is my first TTT in forever! It’s good to finally be back. If you didn’t already know, Top Ten Tuesday or TTT was created by The Broke and The Bookish. Go check their wonderful Blogger blog out 🙂 Christmas is in five days and that means it’s time for a Christmas themed topic!

Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree (or non-book bookworm items)

Ten Things I’d Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under My Tree:

1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Believe it or not, I have yet to own or even read this book. I’ve heard it’s pretty good but haven’t had the chance to read it. That’s why I wouldn’t mind finding it under my tree!

2. The Sun Is Also A Star

This book came out recently and I’m so excited to read it. It’s by Nicola Yoon, the author of Everything,Everything. Since that book blew my mind, I can’t wait to read her second book!

3. Movie Tickets To Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

I still haven’t seen this movie!! I’ve heard it’s incredible and am running out of time to see it. Some movie tickets all ready to go would help a ton!

4. Bookish Posters!

My walls are super bare and I’d love to have a bookish poster or two to fill some gaps.

5. Book Related T-Shirts

I am a teen who loves graphic t-shirts. It would be amazing to have book related ones about books in general or specific ones.

6. A Bookshelf!

While I do have a sort of bookshelf, I’d love a real one. There are some huge beautiful ones that I would love to own (but don’t have room for).

7. A Cozy Blanket!

Strangely enough, I don’t own any cozy blankets. Where I live, it’s been unusually freezing and a blanket is definitely necessary.

8. A Mug!

I’ve been literally obsessed with hot chocolate this year. We own a few mugs but I’d love a personal one.

9. A Book Box Subscription!

I’ve seen monthly book boxes floating around. They look and sound fantastic but they’re a bit too expensive for me. That’s why I’m asking Santa for some help 🙂

10. A Sweatshirt

I love sweatshirts so much. They are my go to for around the house or out and about. I definitely could use a couple more.

That’s a wrap! If you celebrate Christmas, what would you like to find under your tree? If you don’t, what present would you like to receive?

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Top Ten Tuesday!

The Book Blogger Test!

Hey everyone! I was kind of tagged for this. I saw it today on Kendra’s blog. Go check her blog out here!


What Are Your Top 3 Book Pet Hates?

  1. People who draw in books and then give them to other people. If you’re going to draw in your book, don’t give it away!
  2. Authors who somehow have spelling and grammar mistakes. How the heck did it make it past your editor or spell check?!

3. Books that have too many characters. How am I supposed to keep up with who’s who?

Describe Your Perfect Reading Spot.

This is pretty straight forward. My perfect reading spot has to be quiet. It also has to be comfortable and have good lighting.

Tell Us Three Book Confessions.

  1. I have a huge problem with reading tween/children age books. You guys probably already know that.
  2. I don’t have my books organized in anyway on my bookshelf

3. I can’t keep up with my Goodreads challenge.

When Was The Last Time You Cried During a Book?

Um.. let’s see.. At least a  week ago. Normally I’m not very emotional while reading though.

How Many Books Are On Your Bedside Table?

Wait for it… Zero! The book I’m reading right now (Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon) is on my bed. The rest of my books are on my book shelf.

Absolutely nothing! I just like me and my book 🙂

  3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

These sound like books I’d recommend to myself…

Show Us A Picture of Your Favorite Bookshelf On Your Bookcase.

I don’t have an actual bookcase. It’s more of a makeshift one. The shelves are very cluttered and unorginized. I don’t think you guys want to see that.

My Life in Books Book Tag!

Hey everyone! It’s finally the weekend. It’s also finally another tag. I am going to try to do at least one a week if I can. Today I am doing the My Life in Books Tag. I’ve been wanting to do this for sometime now. I was nominated by the amazing Analee @ Book Snacks. You should check out her amazing blog with it’s unique set up 🙂 Without further ado, let’s get going.

1) Find a Book For Each of Your Initials



2) Count Your Age Along Your Bookshelf. What book is it?

That would be 14 so Four by Veronica Roth

3) Pick a Book set in your City/State/Country

To Kill A Mockingbird is one of the hundreds of thousands of books set in the United States which is where I live. A famous/well known book is set in my state but I don’t want to give that away.

4) Pick a Book That Represents a Destination You Would Love To Travel To.

I want to go to many places so I will show three books and/or series.

1) The Harry Potter series is set in London, England. I want to go to London one day for several reasons.

2) Smile by Raina Telgemeier is set in California. Believe it or not, I have yet to go to California.

3) The Ask Amy Green series by Sarah Webb is set in Ireland. I really want to go to Ireland because I am some part Irish and would love to see the land and life.
5) Pick a Book That’s Your Favorite Color
I love most colors but these are my favorites:

I love the color Blue!

I love the color Purple!

6) Which Book Do You Have The Fondest Memory Of?

I have loved lots of books and book series. One of them is the Little Critter picture book series by Mercer Mayer. I can remember reading these many times and smiling at the Little Critter’s silly antics.


7) Which Book Did You Have The Most Difficulty Reading?

I can’t remember exactly when I read these but the A to Z mysteries really scared me for some reason. I’m a huge scaredy cat and didn’t end up finishing the series.

8) What Book In Your TBR Pile Will Give You The Biggest Sense of Accomplishment When You Finish It?

I will feel super accomplished when I finish the Divergent series. I have to finish the last two books.

That’s all. I absolutely enjoyed this tag and hope more like it will surface. That is why I am tagging EVERYONE who wants to participate!

Thanks for reading and Stay tuned for more tags 🙂
