Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/feature created by The Broke and The Bookish. More information and bookish goodness can be found here!
For this weeks Top Ten Tuesday I’ve created a list of things/experiences/delights that make me happy to be a bookworm!
10 // Finding a new author and devouring all of their books. It’s so awesome when this happens. I love finding new authors and falling in love with them, buying all their books and just marathoning them all.
9 // Owning multiple copies because one is super pretty or special. I looooooove owning multiple copies of my favourite books, sometimes even books that aren’t my favourite. If I own more than one copy of a book, you know I love it.
8 // That new book feel. I love the way books feel when they’re still brand new and the spine isn’t creased or cracked and they’re in perfect condition. It just makes my heart happy!
7 // Finding someone who loves the same books or authors as you. This is literally one of the best feelings ever. What could be better than bonding with someone over a book that gave you ALL THE FEELS? We all need someone to fangirl with!
6 // Putting new books on your shelves/reorganising your shelves. I love finding a home for my new books on my bookcase and I especially love reorganising my books. I recently reorganised my books by colour and I love it so. much.
5 // Reading while it’s raining. One of my favourite times to read is while it’s raining. I love curling up in bed with a book and a hot chocolate whilst burying myself under the blankets.
4 // Finding new OTP’s. I love love love when I find a new book couple to ship. When this happens, it tends to take over so much of my life because all the OTP’s should be together!
3 // Taking photos of books. I love taking photos of books because it makes me so happy! *Insert bookstagram plug here* I love seeing other people’s photos of books too because it helps me discover new authors and other books I may be interested which is why bookstagram is one of my favourite bookish platforms.
2 // Book mail! I love getting any mail but I LOVE when a parcel arrives and I open it and there’s a shiny new book sitting there waiting for me. Just the best feeling ever!
1 // Visiting the bookstore after a really long time. This is so true for me at the moment since I only get to go to the bookstore once a month now. So every time I visit it’s like coming home after a long trip and it’s one of my favourite feelings ever!
There you have it, ten of my favourite experiences/feelings about being a booknerd! Let me know in the comments what yours are!
