Ten Things That Make Me Want To Read A Book:

Image result for yes please meme


2. The Cover!

I am someone who is likely to judge a book by its cover. If it has a beautiful, interesting or eye-catching cover, I’m likely to give it a try!

Image result for so beautiful meme


3. The Length!

If it’s a longer book, there’s a higher chance I’ll read it. Short books are definitely not my style.

Image result for long books meme


4. The Writing Style!

I’m not too picky about the writing style. The only style I won’t read is verse. That’s definitely not my thing.

5. The Author!

If it’s an author I know/have read, I will most likely give it a read. Especially if it’s part of a series!

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!

Image result for the sun is also a star


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!

Image result for fantastic beasts and where to find them fan artcredit:Pinterest


4. Bookish Posters!

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

Image result for book postersRelated image

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.

Read. Eat. Sleep. Repeat. (Blue) by Samantha Weldon


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).

Image result for bookshelf


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.

Image result for cozy blanket


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.

Image result for book mugImage result for tv show mug


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 🙂

Image result for uppercase book box


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.

He’s so creepy, the enemy of Batman and has such a strange laugh. What’s not to love?

2. Doctor Octopus or Doc Ock- Marvel Comics (Spiderman)

He has so many metal arms and he’s one of the many enemies of Spiderman.

Image result for doctor octopus


3. Mr. Freeze- DC Universe (Batman)

Top Ten Tuesday| Books I Still Haven’t Read

 

Hey everyone! It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesdays. This wonderful meme is hosted by the people @ The Broke and the Bookish. Go check them out for all things bookish! This week’s topic may be tough for me. It is:

Ten Books That Have Been On Your Shelf (Or TBR) From Before You Started Blogging That You STILL Haven’t Read Yet

I most likely won’t make it to ten books.


Ten Books I Still Haven’t Read:

  1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

This will most likely be off my list soon since I am starting High School in a couple of weeks.


2.The Giver by Lois Lowry

I feel like this is a book I should read.  I don’t know when I will.

3. An Abundance of Kathrines by John Green

Since I’ve enjoyed both of the John Green books I’ve read so far, I want to read another one!

4. The Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer
I still haven’t read the Twilight books. I’m not 100% sure if I ever will be they are on my TBR never less.

5. Allegiant by Veronica Roth
I have read the first and second books in the series. I hesitate to read this one though.

6. Four by Veronica Roth

This is literally on my bookshelf. It’s more of a prequel or so I’ve heard.

7.I Funny TV by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein

 

I have loved the I Funny series so far and can’t wait to read this one!


8. 52 Story Treehouse by Andy Griffiths

I have always loved this series. It’s more of a children’s graphic novel but still amazing. Each book, the treehouse has more attractions and floors.


 9. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

 This has been on my Goodreads TBR for sometime. I hope to eventually read it.


10. Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell

I need to read more classics and I feel like this would be perfect!


I guess I have more reading to do than I thought! What are some books you still need to read? Let me know!

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

Top Ten Tuesday|Rewind

Hey everyone! It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! This weekly meme is hosted by the wonderful people @ The Broke and the Bookish. Go check them out for all things bookish and fun! This week’s topic is pretty free and unlimited.

Top Ten Tuesday REWIND — go back and do a topic you missed over the years or recently or a topic you really want to revisit

I have decided to do Top Ten WOW endings. It was done in April of 2013.


Top Ten WOW Endings: *NO SPOILERS INCLUDED*

  1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows  by JK Rowling Ending

This ending was WOW in terms of name choices and so much more.I don’t want to spoil anything since some still haven’t read the Harry Potter series!

No rush 😀


2.The Everything,Everything by Nicola Yoon ending

Everything, Everything

 

This ending was one of the best I have ever read. It was a plot twist I didn’t see coming. If you haven’t read Everything,Everything, I definitely recommend it!

3.The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This ending could’ve been seen coming but it was still shocking and so,so sad. If you haven’t read The Book Thief, you definitely need to!

4. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

And Then There Were None


We read this book in school. It was such a suspenseful and pretty creepy book. The ending was strange and left some open ends to it. If you love mystery books, this is one for you.

5. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins ending

Mockingjay: Movie Tie-In Edition (The Hunger Games, Book 3) (Hunger Games Trilogy) by [Collins, Suzanne]
I thought this ending would have a lot more to it. It had an abrupt ending which was the most shocking. If you love tons of action, this book is for you!

6. Insurgent by Veronica Roth ending

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)
This ending was a huge plot twist!! It changed everything. I haven’t read Allegiant and really don’t plan to. The ending left tons of open ends for me. If you love suspense, action and adventure, this book is for you!
I guess I only got 6 books!

That’s a wrap!! I sure hope I didn’t forget anything! Comment any books that I forgot that would’ve been on your list.

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