This week is about characters’ jobs you wish you could have. Mind you I mostly have been reading a lot of self help books, and I guess a lot of books I read have been Young Adults, so they didn’t have any jobs, yet.

In this book Carmen is an actress, and I always thought it would be so cool to be an actress, and star in a movie, or a TV show.

2. The Happiness Project

I am very envious, because Gretchen is a successful author, and blogger. That is something that I inspire to do.

Claire is a combat nurse. When I was 10, I thought I wanted to be a nurse, but the whole Covid pandemic made me eerie, so I decided not to.

I think it would be interesting to solve crimes. I watch a lot of crime dramas, and I enjoy solving and trying to figure why they’ve committed these crimes. I find it interesting, and I know that it’s totally different in real life.

Top Ten Tuesdays #1

Hey, everyone! I am excited to partake in my first Top Ten Tuesdays.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This blogger would assign a new list every week. Although she does say that it is okay to not have a list of 10, if you can’t find 10 books. This week’s theme is books that make you hungry. It could have food on the cover, have food in the title, have some recipes, or mention food in the book.

So, without further ado, here is my list…

10. Cooking Up A Business

I originally bought this with the intention of perhaps wanting to open our restaurant one day, but our goals have changed over the years. And the way things are going, it’s almost like the restaurant service/industry is almost a dying business.

9. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

I enjoy reading this book, because I love drinking tea, and hosting tea parties. This book makes me hungry of their tea parties, and how she eats a magical cake to make herself grow.

8. James and the Giant Peach

This was my sister’s favourite Roald Dahl’s favourite, so growing up this was also my favourite book, too. I always had to be like my sister. But now that I have explored into my own self. I actually really enjoy BFG (Big Friendly Giant), and Matilda.

7. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

I absolutely loved this book growing up, too. I also love chocolate, who doesn’t?!

6. The Chef

I got this book for my boyfriend. He really enjoyed it. It’s all revovles around a food truck owner. And there’s even recipes included from the food truck menu. It’s mostly Mardi Gras food, so that would be fun to make one day.

5. Eat Pray Love

This book always makes me hungry. She travels to Italy, so she consumes a lot of pasta, and they even have gelato (ice cream) for breakfast. I can empathize with her because she mentions how she has been gaining weight since she first traveled out there.

4. CRAVE!

I enjoy buying and using cooking books. I bought this one because it’s all about comfort food. I love making comfort foods, it is one of the best things to make.

3. Desserts

Because stressed spelt backwards is desserts. I enjoy baking, too. I love making chocolate chip cookies, and I would love to master brownies.

2. Potatoes

I love making potatoes because there are so many different ways to cook and bake them. The possibilities are endless.

  1. Soups

My favourite thing to cook is soups. I am so happy that soup season is upon us. I’m going to try various soups this season.
