Top Ten Tuesday--

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the girls over at The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks topic is Top Ten Posts On Your Blog That Would Give The BEST Picture of YOU (as a reader and a person -- so pick the 10 best reviews/posts that you wish every potential reader of your blog would see!)

Holy cow this is a really really really hard one.

1. My Book Boyfriend-- Harry:
I am a massive Harry Potter fan and have been for more than half my life. I used to play Harry Potter with my friends when I was younger (who am I kidding, I still do), I've seen all the movies the day they came out in theaters, bought the movies the day they came out on dvd, I've had HP posters hanging up on my walls since I was 11, I have hp shirts, I make wands for fun, I went to the theme park a few months after it opened and I cried when I walked into Hogsmead for the first time. I also went to London/Edinburgh and took pictures of everything HP related and I happened to meet JK herself on that trip. Harry Potter isn't an obsession, it's a lifestyle.

2. Let's talk about what makes you angry in a book:
This is a post I recently did talking about what annoys me in my books. These are all things that bug me a lot and some also apply to my day to day life.

3. Book buying spree:
This is not unusual for me to do. Just like every other book blogger, I adore buying books. I adore it so much that it has actually become a problem. Like a few weeks ago, Powells sent me an email saying "free shipping today!!!" and I went "Omg noooo wayyyy" and ordered a few books *facepalm*

4. YA or Bust tour:
This was the book tour I really wanted to go to and was able to go even though it meant I had to drive 4 hours and out of state to get to. So worth it.

5. Fun Book title survey:
Remember back when Myspace was cool or mass emails and everyone always did those surveys about themselves? I was a BIG fan of those. Did them all the freaking time. I took my love of surveys and applied them to my blog. I've done a few of them but this one was my favorite. I've done it a few times and will probably end up doing it again sometime.

6. When I'm not Reading:
I've done a few of these (and did a guest post on Missie the Unread Readers blog for it) and this one is about my painting. I paint a lot (these are all 2 years old or older) and I use the books I read as inspiration.

7. Favorite Book Quotes:
There are a few TTT that will be on this list. This one is my favorite book quotes (or some of them. I could never come up with only 10 of my favorites). There is a quote out there that goes something like "the quotes people like say more about them than the actual quotes" and I believe that is so true. :)

8. Books that gave me strong emotions:
The books I love and hate and my reactions to them I think says a lot about me ;)

I'm sure there are more posts that show the dazzling personality of yours truly (just read any of my TTT's and that shows a lot of my personality) but I was getting kinda tired of going through all my old posts. :)


  1. Okay, I'm a huge Potter fan...but I had to laugh when I read that you'd been one half of your life. :) Harry showed up way too late in my life for that but he did manage to capture more than half a decade. Great list.

    1. Yeah I'm part of the Harry Potter generation. He came into my life when I was 11 (or 10?) and I'm 23 now.

  2. Some great posts here. I really liked 2 - what makes you angry in a book.

  3. You picked some great choices for this weeks top ten! I especially liked the posts about what makes you angry in books, I think it says a lot about a peson when you see what truly irritates them.

    I picked a lot of top ten lists for mine as well, they all seemed fitting and give a good insight in my personality! Check my list out here!

  4. Lol! This prompt would gave been hard but jibsa fun. Too bad I didn't participate. I live your HP obsession. That's true fandom!

  5. Wow, Harry is indeed your boyfriend. I wouldn't dare to go near him! LOL. :)

  6. Great list! I totally agree with all your reasons in the What Make You Angry post!
    Here’s my TTT

  7. I loved that one of your favorites was the TTT Quotes. I chose that one as well because I love quotes. I really loved the quote from Halfway to the Grave. I haven't read it but after reading that quote I think it may be worth my time! :) Thanks for sharing more about you!

    1. I love quotes too. My sister and I have this thing in which we will randomly say quotes (most of the time from tv shows) and the other has to guess who said it and where it's from.


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
