Top Ten Bookish Memories

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun meme hosted by the lovelies over at The Broke and The Bookish.

This week, they ask us to list our Top Ten Bookish Memories. 

Since I am pretty fail with going to bookish events, this might be a little different from other posts out there today...bear with me!

  1. Discussing Team X with other bloggers. You guys know my love of Warner already, but I sincerely do love starting a new book or series and chatting with other bloggers and readers about which boy they root for!
  2. Watching book to movie adaptations. Obviously, Pride and Prejudice is one of my ALL TIME FAVES in movie and book form, but I often enjoy watching the transition from book to screen! It creates fun memories for those of us who have experienced both. 
  3. Readalongs. I'm currently doing #cashoregoodtimes and the Lumatere Chronicles readalong and I am SO STOKED to be part of a mini community to discuss these things! It's quite fun and good for bonding and all that warm fuzzy biz.
  4. Crying over a loss. Looking at you, Patrick Ness. This is a top ten memory for me in the Chaos Walking trilogy, but also whenever I care about a character enough to SOB REAL TEARS over them...I mean really. What more could a book nerd ask for?
  5. Devouring a new series. I will never forget the feeling of Julie Kagawa's hooks sinking into my heart whilst reading The Iron King. I was 1/2 way through the first book when I preordered the box set. I regret NOTHING.
  6. New bookshelves. I painted/created my two bookshelves in the living room and I am quite proud of them, thank you very much. They are a spring green with a swirly black and white pattern in the back. Fancy pants am I!
  7. Sharing books. Whether this is with other bloggers or my reader friends in real life, I love creating new memories of bookish origin by sharing stories and post it notes and texts with each other when loaning a book out. So fun!
  8. Rereading. Okay, so this may not seem like it's a bookish memory, but really you are reliving the book based on what you can remember. I really enjoy experiencing a book for the second (and third, and fourth) time and absorbing all of the details again and again!
  9. Recommending a book someone adores. Yeah, I know it's selfish but WHATEVER it's such a good feeling. 
  10. Starting this blog. I know it's so cheeseball you guys but really! So many great bookish memories stem from this little ole place and it makes my heart warm so there.
I can't wait to read what your Top Ten Bookish Memories are! 

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.


  1. Watching movie adaptations, rereading great books and starting my blog are all memories I hold as well.
    My Top Ten Tuesday

  2. Watching movie adaptations can be a momentous event - I really loved seeing the Cloud Atlas up on the big screen :)

    Also, I agree, Patrick Ness is sooooo good at making you feel all the feelings (darn him for making me cry in public)!!

  3. I love your list. We've had some pretty good book chats, haven't we? :)

  4. I love your list so much! And totally YES to the crying over loss, especially during that trilogy. I remember bawling in my room while reading it and my parents thought I was absolutely crazy. Your bookshelves are super cute, btw :)

    1. Oh yes, so many tears thanks to Patrick. Some happy, some sad - ALL THE FEELS.

  5. Your shelves are absolutely gorgeous! You did a wonderful job.

    Read-alongs are always fun, and I'm excited about the one for The Lumatere Chronicles. I can't wait to get started!

    Also, I'm super glad you started your blog and that we're now friends! Best thing ever <3

  6. TOTALLY Warner. And I love those shelves. Make me some? <3

  7. I used to not buy books unless I knew I would reread them or was buying them for the sole purpose of actually rereading them. This was when I was a broke student...oh wait, I still am. Now I just don't care as much. But I LOVE rereading. Some people just don't understand, which I don't understand. How could you NOT reread a book that you loved?

  8. It is such a good feeling when you recommend a book to someone, and that someone tells you how much she loved it. Although I wouldn't say that I hear it frequently, I do hear about it a decent number of times because I'm a children's librarian, and it never ever stops feeling wonderful :)

    Movie adaptations are totally exciting. And I couldn't agree more with you about Pride and Prejudice. I am loving the Lizzie Bennet Diaries right now. Every Monday and Thursday, I don't shut up about it. I think I drive everyone at work crazy, but I say they should totally be as obsessed as I am. Because it AMAZING! And it's Pride and Prejudice. So there :)

    1. I too love the LBD but I am MASSIVELY behind!

  9. Confession: I'm behind on our readalong. I need to get busy. :-/

    Second confession: I <3 coming to your blog. It makes me so happy. xo

  10. I love your list! Recommending something that someone loves is always The Best!

  11. Love that you mentioned Chaos Walking! I definitely read those because of you and they are one of my favorite bookish memories! Also, your shelves are the BOMB! I definitely think a pop of color is what my own shelves need!

  12. Oh lady, I love your list today!

    First of all, I just bought Unravel Me but haven't read it yet and I'm legit scared that I'll become Team Warner. He's so creepy and villainous in book two! AHHH!

    YAYYY for book to movie adaptations, and obviously I love the Pride and Prejudice shout out. That book is just the best.

    Loving the Cashore read-along and WOOOHOOOOO Lumatere is finally here! Seriously so pumped about reading these books with a fabulous lady like yourself.

    I, too, LOVE the feeling when you discover a new series. It's so exciting when you realize OMG I love this book and there are X number more to come! And then there's the sadness when the series ends :(

    I'm so with you on rereading, and it makes me like you even more that you love to reread. I think a book can just get better and better the more you read it because you discover even more to love about it.

    I LOVE when someone tells me they loved a book I recommended. It kinda makes me want to do a fist pump haha!

    And so glad you started this blog (and that I started mine) - it's brought so much bookish goodness into my life!

    1. I'm so happy you started your blog too! It's one of my faves, you know. :)

  13. I love your green bookshelf! It looks fantastic, Lisa!

  14. <33333

    New bookshelves are the best.

    So is blogging.

    So are friend discussions.

    I wish I had time to do more readalongs, sighhhhh.

    Also. I will have to read Unravel Me SOON to understand just why people are Team Warner.


Hey you! What do you have to say?
