top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: Bookworm Delights

These are some of our favorite book/reading things!

1. When someone raves about a book I recommended to him/her

Recommending books is very hard because sometimes books hit people in different ways. I feel a sense of relief when a book affects a person in the way I predict!

2. Finding a hidden gem

I often find myself reading books that other bloggers and friends recommend. Further, I try to stay caught up on my favorite authors. But sometimes, I pull that random book off of my shelf, and it shocks me. I am always excited when that book is an ARC because I am able to talk it up before its publication.

3. When 11pm hits, and my work for the day is done, and I reach my reading reward time

Sometimes, this reading reward time extends well into the morning hours!

4. Meeting authors

When I meet an author, and s/he turns out to be a wonderful human being, it just makes the world feel warmer and brighter. I find that almost all YA authors are incredible human beings.

5. Knocking a book off of my book bucket list

Sometimes I go a long time, promising myself I will get to a certain book. When I finish it (and especially if it is very good), I feel very accomplished. As long as I don’t write this list down, it feels manageable in a lifetime. 😉

1. When my prediction is correct (or really wrong)!

I love when my prediction is correct, but I also love when a book tricks me!

2. When I find the book title in the story

I get so excited and usually tab it! I love figuring out how the title is chosen.

3. Reading alone at a park or in Starbucks or in bed

Even though I am outgoing, I am an introvert, so this is one of my favorite things in the world.

4. Helping kids find books they really love

This is also one of my favorite things in the world. I love helping kids find a book they truly love. It makes me feel like I have changed their life.

5. When a book makes me cry or laugh out loud

There are books that make others cry/laugh out loud that make me sad or I find humorous, but it is only pretty special books that make me cry or laugh out loud.

What delights you the most?
