Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Places I’d Love to Visit Someday

Hello there, and happy Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl where there is a topic and you make a list that best fits that topic! This week’s topic is a very fun one, and one that I am very excited for: Book Events/Festivals I’d Love to Go to Someday (Real or Fictional. Submitted by Nandini @ Unputdownable Books). I kind of changed it though, and instead did bookish places that I’d someday love to visit.

Top Ten Tuesday: Holiday Reads

Hello! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s topic is holiday reads: books you like reading during the holiday season.

Whether or not you celebrate any holidays over the winter, it’s a perfect time to curl up with a book and read for hours, so here are some of my favorite books to read over winter break and the holiday season

1 The Penderwicks, by Jeanne Birdsall

2 The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, by Jeanne Birdsall

3 The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, by Jeanne Birdsall

4 The Penderwicks in Spring, by Jeanne Birdsall

5 The Penderwicks at Last, by Jeanne Birdsall

The whole entire series is amazing, and the Penderwick siblings are some of my favorite bookish characters! Jeanne Birdsall’s The Penderwicks series is the perfect thing to read over the holidays.

6 Secrets at Sea, by Richard Peck

7 The Mouse with the Question Mark Tail, by Richard Peck

(I have a signed copy!!!!!!!!!)

These two books aren’t exactly part of a series, but they are part of the same world, where mice are everywhere. They are really cute stories, and as always with Richard Peck’s books, are full of humor.

8 Absolutely Truly, by Heather Vogel Frederick

Truly, the main character, recently moved to Pumpkin Falls, Massachusetts, where her family owns a bookstore called Lovejoy books. Lovejoy books is so amazing and cute, and I wish there was a bookstore like it where I live! It’s so cute in so many ways; the pumpkin whoopie pies, Miss Marple, the store’s mascot and dog, and the fact that they let people just come in, hangout, and read!

9 The Mother Daughter Book Club: all of them! (also by Heather Vogel Frederick)

The ways that the book club discusses books, and how they host their meetings is so fun and festive all year round, and the way that the series follows a bunch of different girls lives is so amazing and so fun to read! I’ve only read this series one, but I want to reread it already!

I could list so many more books, but I’m going to end with just this for today!

What are some books that you like to curl up with in the winter and during the holiday season? Do you like some of the same books? Chat with me in the comments below!

Top Ten Tuesday: Character Traits I Love

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. How it works is each week there’s a topic, and you make lists of books that fit that topic!

1 My first character is Jane from the Penderwicks. She is so happy and upbeat, and so dedicated to her writing!

2 My second is Ada, from The War I finally Won. She is so brave and persistent, and never backs down from a challenge.

3 My third is May Amelia, from Our Only May Amelia. Having seven brothers and being the only girl in Nasel isn’t easy, but she preservers and makes the most out of everything.

4 My fourth is Esperanza from Esperanza Rising. She goes from being extremely wealthy to having almost nothing, but she is very brave and always wants to do her part.

I know that its top TEN Tuesday, but my computer isn’t working very well, so I’m just going to leave it at 4!

The Netflix Book Tag

Hi, and thanks to Rukky@Eternity Books for suggesting this book tag to me. I’ve never really done any posts other than book reviews, and I started blogging a month ago, so, I’ll see how this goes!

#1 Recently Watched – The Last Book You Finished

I am Princess X. I finished it a couple days ago and haven’t been able to decide what to read next. I did finish the audiobook the 39 Clues book 7 the Viper’s Nest last night, so I guess both

#2 Top Picks – A Book That Has Been Recommended to You Based on What You Previously Have Read

The book The Sun is also a Star was recommended to me because I read Everything Everything, by Nicola Yoon.

#3 Recently Added – The Last Book You Purchased

I don’t usually buy books, but I finally used the gift certificate that I got for my birthday, 11 months ago, and I got the books Hattie Big Sky and its sequel Hattie Ever After, which are two of my favorite books, and Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon, which was so good, and I definitely recommend it.

#4 Popular on Netflix – Books That Everyone Knows (Two You’ve Read & Two You Have No Interest In)

I have no interest in reading the Harry Potter books; I read the first one and I did not like. I think that they’re okay books, but that they’re really overrated.

I have read the The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, and it was really powerful; there’s a reason everybody knows it!

#5 Comedies – A Funny Book

The Wednesday Wars, by Gary D. Schmidt, is a very funny book, and I’ve read it a lot of times. It has lots of hilarious parts, but also coveres a lot of more serious topics at the same time.

#6 Dramas – A Character Who Is a Drama King/Queen

I think that Jane from The Penderwicks is definitely a drama queen, the opposite of her sister Rosalind, who’s always portrayed as the ‘sensible’ sister.

#7 Animated – A Book With Cartoons on the Cover

I can’t really think of a book with cartoons on the cover, because I don’t really read graphic novels that much.

#8 Watch it Again – A Book or Series You Want to Reread

I want to reread the book Absolutely Truly, by Heather Vogel Frederick, and its sequel, Yours Truly.

#9 Documentaries – A Nonfiction Book You’d Recommend to Everyone

I don’t read a huge amount of nonfiction, but Notorious RBG; the life and times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a really good biography, and about an amazing person!

#10 Action Adventure – An Action-Packed Book or Series

I don’t read a lot of action-packed books or series, but the 39 clues series, although I think it was aimed at slightly younger kids, is filled with action.

#11 New Releases – A Book That Just Came Out or Will Be Coming Out Soon That You Can’t Wait to Read

The Trials of Apollo book 4, The Tyrant’s Tomb, is coming out on September 24, and I’m really excited because I’m a huge fan of all of Rick Riordan’s books. (now that I think of it, all of his books are filled with action, so I should have probably put it up there)

Well, there it is. I think I’m supposed to tag other bloggers, but I don’t really know any other blogs than the ones that have already done it, so that’s all for today!
