Top Ten Tuesdays #27 – March 2nd, 2021

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 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.

  1. Sisterhood Everlasting

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.

3. The Outlander

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.

4. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

I would love to work at a chocolate factory, so I was jealous of Willy Wonka

When I was in middle school, I thought it would be fun to take care of children. In this story, the main character is a nanny.

7. Safe Haven

The main character is a waitress, and I always thought that it would be fun job when I was younger. I have never really been a waitress before, but I have worked a lot in the food industry.

8. The Year of Yes

Shonda Rhimes is a successful TV show creator and writer. I can only hope that my writing is that influential and amazing.

9. The Longest Ride

In the book, Sophia is an inspiring artist, and I wish I had those talents to become a good artist.

10. The Cuckoo’s Calling

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.

Thankful Thursdays #27 – December 31st, 2020

I cannot believe this is the last Thankful Thursday of the year. But don’t worry I will definitely keep on posting this every Thursday in the new year. I really enjoy writing these posts.

I have a lot to be grateful for this week. I would love to hear about what everyone is grateful this week, and even throughout the year, too.

Here is my list.

  1. I had a lovely Christmas. My roommate made us steaks and baked potatoes, with a Caesar salad. It was really delicious. It was a fun night considering we couldn’t really see our families with the new restrictions.
  2. Disney+ released a new movie called Soul, it was an amazing film. It’s about discovering your purpose in your life. I loved watching that movie. I feel extra inspired to start the year off with having watched that movie. I can’t wait to watch the new series on Netflix called Bridgerton. Especially since Shonda Rhimes produced the show. It is based off a book series.
  3. My boyfriend and I enjoyed four days of watching football. It was even better, because our team won.
  4. I briefly saw my family for an exchange outside of our house, maintaining our distance from one another. I got a bunch of cool stuff, stuff I needed like body wash, a candle, money, and gift cards.
  5. Our room is all clean for the new year’s arrival. That is always exciting. 🙂

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 week it is about Books I Want to Read Again, or Books I Wish I Could Read Again For the First Time.

  1. All of the Harry Potter books
I really wish I had my collection with these covers, but that’s okay.

I would love re-reading them from time to time. I feel like they become more magical every time I re-read them.

2. Eat Pray Love

I loved the book, and the movie. I enjoy re-living the first time I experienced this book and movie.

3. The BFG

My boyfriend and I read this book together a few years ago. We thought it was really good.

4. To Kill A Mockingbird

I fell in love with this book when I read it in the tenth grade.

5. Charlotte’s Web

I first read this book in grade seven, I thought it was a touching and a heartfelt book. I can’t wait to re-read it. It’s a beautiful story about friendship.

6. The Year of Yes

I enjoyed this book, I thought it was a smart and funny book. It inspires me to be a better person.

7. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

I remember these books in high school, after watching the movies, years prior. I loved these stories so much.

8. Gone Girl

This book was a lot of fun to read. I wish I had read the book, before I saw the movie. It was still a good book. I probably wouldn’t read it again, or at least not for awhile. But I wish I was able not to know the ending, so I can read it without knowing what was going to happen.

9. Turn of the Key

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a thriller, so I wouldn’t be reading this since I already know the mystery. But I wish I can travel back in time, to be able to read it all over again. This book wanted me to read other Ruth Ware’s books. I enjoyed her writing.

10. The Couple Next Door

I borrowed this book from my Grandma, and it was a really good book. I wish I was able to go back in time to write the book for the first time, and not be able to see that twist happen. It was well done.
