Top Ten Tuesday (19)

Happy Tuesday! Today I've decided to participate in Top Ten Tuesday, formerly hosted by Jamie at The Broke and the Bookish, now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.

Today's topic is: 

Books with Sensory Reading Memories

Love, Lies and Spies - I remember reading this one and thinking, this is the YA version of an adult historical romance novel! Genius!

The Night Circus - I owned the hardcover of this book long before I read it. I got it for Christmas from a friend from high school! I remember feeling tickled pink.

Fire - true story, years ago I wanted to read this book so badly and saw that it was checked in, at my local public library. I should have put a hold on it but didn't. When we got to the library, I couldn't find the copy that was checked in. I almost cried. I had a tiny, quiet meltdown in front of my sister. She was annoyed. And then like a minute later, she finds the book and hands it to me. Best day ever!

Brightly Woven - I remember checking this book out from the library. Bracken didn't have any other books published at the time, so she was a bit of an unknown. I remember thinking that the cover was so pretty and the story sounded amazing.

Sanctum - I remember reading a fellow blogger's review of this one, and thinking that the book sounded so good. Soon after, I went to the library to browse, and this book was there, in the New Teen Fiction section! It was a lucky coincidence! I checked out the book - and loved it.

Across a Star-Swept Sea - I remember seeing this cover reveal on Epic Reads' blog, and loving her explanation of the cover. Diana talked about how the cover model and cover composition was perfect for the main character.  

I think that's all I've got! This was a difficult topic. Most of my selections were based on my first memory of the book. It was a neat exercise!


  1. I've had that happen to me at the library to - you see that it's just been returned you go to get it and of course it's been checked out again since you checked... sigh...

  2. It's so cool that you can remember the first memory you had of books. We usually only remember if if we really enjoyed it or, on the other hand, really disliked it. The Night Circus looks so pretty though, that's for sure :)

  3. This was a tricky topic! For me, I can remember where/when I was reading a book for the first time as well. Generally, they were loved books too! Lol!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. I can remember where I read a few books, but I doubt I could get anywhere close to 10! haha I still really want to read Sanctum.


  5. What a cool topic! I loved reading your experiences with each of them.

  6. Loved getting your first memories of why you picked up the books. I've no idea about many books though sometimes I put this in the reviews. It would be fun to figure out stuff.

  7. My most loved first memory of a book is probably Artemis Fowl when I borrowed it from the library when I was about 13. And then going back for it a few months later with a friend because I wanted to reread it. xD

  8. I really need to get around to reading The Night Circus. Everyone raves about it.

  9. That's a cute story about Fire. :) And Love Lies and Spies looks like a lot of fun!

  10. Oh I do love the cover and I love when they aren't just pretty but have a tie in!

  11. This was a really difficult topic, and that's why I skipped it, but I thought you did a great job. I think my favorite story is the library meltdown. You're adorable.

  12. Ahh, loved this post :D And eee, love your Fire story. <3 All the hugs love. YOU ARE AWESOME :D


I love comments! I will always try and reply to your comments, as well as leave some comment love on your blog! :)

Also, this an award and tag free blog. While I am flattered that you would think of me, I really do not have the time to follow up. Thank you!
