Top Ten Tuesday: Books with Sensory Reading Memories

Dear reader,

The theme of this week is “books with sensory reading memories“, meaning books that are linked to very specific moments, places etc. As I tend to have a lot of memories with books I thought that it would be great to list some of those which were there during some very special moments in my life.

If you don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, it was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. A list of topics is up on that blog and every Tuesday you can create your own list, following the topic announced for the day, or just go with your imagination.

Without further ado, let’s dive into this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, which I organised in a chronological order!

Top Ten Tuesday: Throwback to my childhood shelves

Dear reader,

As I just posted my Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag, I didn’t want to talk about my favourite books of 2018 so far again, which was the new topic for this week. Instead, I decided to go for a throwback, as it was supposed to be one originally.

If you don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, it was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. A list of topics is up on that blog and every Tuesday you can create your own list, following the topic announced for the day, or just go with your imagination.

Without further ado, let’s jump right in, take a ride to the past and talk about my top ten favourite books when I was younger (11-15 years old).

Top Ten Tuesday: “It was love at first line.”

Dear reader,

As I am new in the bookish blogosphere, I only heard recently of the Top Ten Tuesday topics (I know, I’m living on another planet) and since I only live thanks to lists, I had to keep it somewhere to finally join someday – and now is the time.

If (like me) you don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, it was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. A list of topics is up on that blog and every Tuesday you can create your own list, following the topic announced for the day, or just go with your imagination.

For the 13th of February, the topic was “Love Freebie” and after doing many researches to get exactly what it meant, here is what I have guessed from it: you basically have to choose any topic linked to “love” (favourite romances, favourite book boyfriends/girlfriends, favourite kiss scenes etc) and work on it.

For mine, I decided to switch the subject a little bit: I do not read a lot of romance books anymore and while I was doing a list of all my favourite love speeches, I realised I only listed heterosexual couples and I didn’t want that. I also felt frustrated because for me, “love” means so much more than just a couple – it includes friends, family, hobbies etc. So after thinking for a very very very long time, I remembered this quote from the last book I read, which is Tash Hearts Tolstoy, and it was: “It was love at first line.”

This is why today I am presenting you the top ten books I fell in love with at first line.
