Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish Delights

Hey, everyone!

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. 

So pretty!

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?

  1. Yes so much to books with food, dogs and good covers!! And narrators can so make all the difference!! Great list!

  2. I LOVE rainbow books! Mine are rainbow-ish. Well, color coordinated at least!

    I also agree with finding out a series is already out - I have a terrible memory so I'm a big fan of the marathon!

  3. YES!!! There's nothing I love more than falling in love with a book only to learn it's a series and I don't have to leave the world or characters just yet:) Also, yes to books with dogs and of course happy endings! I can't deal with any other kind:)

  4. I do love the smell of books! And I wish I had one giant bookcase so I could do the rainbow look.

  5. Great list!

  6. Yes to all but the rainbow shelf! I have a system lol. Love this topic!

  7. I love foodie books, and yes to rainbow shelves! Such an awesome list! I cannot binge read, I need at least 3 weeks between books in a series but do love being able to devour them at my leasure.

  8. This list makes me smile. Truly spoke to me. :)
