Top Ten Tuesday| A Learning Experience

Hey everyone! I’m back! After not blogging for 5 or so days, I hope to give you some great blog posts. Today is Tuesday and that means it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday. This weekly meme is hosted by the amazing people at The Broke and the Bookish. Go check them out for all things book related. This week’s topic is:

Top Ten Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do or Learn About After Reading Them (inspired by my post wayyy back in 2012 that I did on a TTT freebie week and have so wanting to revisit. *hides because of the hideous graphics…I was just learning*)

Let’s get started!


Top Ten Books That Made Me Want To Learn or Do:

  1. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

I know I’ve mentioned this series countless times. Reading this series made me want to go visit Hogwarts and then The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.


2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

This book has also been mentioned a lot. This book made me want to travel to Amsterdam. In the book it looks so beautiful!!


3. The Book Thief by Mark Zusak (REVIEW COMING SOON!!)

I just finished this late last night. It was such an amazing book. The ending was absolutely heartbreaking though. A full review will be out soon. Reading this made me want to learn about World War I since I haven’t learned about it yet.


4. Genie Wishes by Elizabeth Dahl

This is one book that I’ve actually done what I wanted to do. Like I’ve said several times, over the last one year and one month, this book really inspired me to start blogging. If I hadn’t read that book, I wouldn’t be sitting here typing this. This book is basically about a girl named Genie. She gets appointed as the classroom blogger at school. At first she doesn’t enjoy it but then it becomes her passion.


5.The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

This is a book that was a school assigned read. I’m one of the few who seems to actually enjoy the school assigned books. If you haven’t read the Outsiders, I absolutely recommend it. It’s basically about two groups who are always at odds. It’s also about much more than that. This book made me want to treat people better and not let a first impression decide on if I’ll at least respect them or not.


6.Dumplin’ by Julie Murphey

I recommend this book! It’s a book about an overweight girl who’s not afraid to wear a bikini. She has some interesting relationship(s) and does something that most like her wouldn’t dare to do. This book didn’t really make me want to learn or do anything. It just made me realize how much fat shaming can really hurt someone. I’ve always known that it did but this made me see at what level.


On that note, that’s a wrap! I only managed to get 6/10 but that’s still pretty good. What books did/would you pick for this topic? Let me know!

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