It's Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke and The Bookish! This week's topic is bookish delights; whether it be the smell of books or the perfect reading weather, this week is all about those little things that make reading that much better.
In no order....
10. The smell of books
Starting it off cliche!
9. Rainbow bookshelf
|Not mine. Sadly.|
Even though my shelves don't allow for a good rainbow organizing system (they wrap around the walls, so you can't see it fully), this is such a gorgeous way to display.
8. Finding a great book, and then discovering it's a series!
There are so many series that have given me such a rush when I find out there's more to be had. Night Huntress by Jeanine Frost, Experiment in Terror by Karina Halle, Addicted by Krista and Becca Ritchie....just to name a few!
7. Discovering a series when most or all of the books are already out
Not gonna lie, I love binge reading series like this. It's so awesome to not have to wait so long for another book. For example: Kate Daniels, Charley Davidson, Mercy Thompson, Chicagoland Vampires...
6. Buying your favorites in physical form
For the past few months now I've been reading almost exclusively on my Kindle of via audiobook. However, that doesn't dim the excitement whenever I order the paperback version of a favorite!
5. Books with food
I could happily eat 24/7, and with my metabolism (thank you, maternal side, for letting me eat everything and not gain anything), I almost have to. I love when I can find a foodie book!
4. Books with dogs
|She makes weird faces.|
I am a huge dog lover, and it makes me so happy when the heroine or hero has a pup. Especially a hero...so hot.
3. Books with great covers
Yeah yeah, don't a book by its cover and all that. Come on though, we all love a nice cover.
2. Great narrators
A fantastic narrator is my favorite way to read a book. It adds so much to the story!
1. Happy endings
I am such a sucker for a happy ending. I need it!
What about you? What are your bookish delights?
