Top Ten Tuesday: Best Bookish Memories

hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.

1. I went to the midnight release of the 5th, 6th, and 7th Harry Potter books.  Being in a book store with so many other Harry Potter fanatics was incredible.

2. I interned for a publishing company spring semester junior year of college.  I learned so much and met several authors that happened to come into the office.  It was an awe-inspiring, something that I never expected to do.

3. I met Seanan McGuire in the Spring of 2012 and I found out that we have many of the same interests.  She a wonderful human being and incredibly funny.

4. When I was younger, my dad and I used to read the Series of Unfortunate Events together.  Those 30 minutes at a time were some of the best memories I have reading.

5. Every year my family and I used to go up to a cottage at the end of the summer.  Each night before bed we'd gather on our parents bed and my mom would read A Wrinkle In Time out-loud.  It was great family bonding time.

6. When I was a kid, I used to read under the covers with a flash light after lights out.  Whenever I got caught, my parents would sort of laugh because they knew that my loving to read was a good problem to have.

7. I went to Hogwarts!  When the Universal theme park opened in 2010, I thought to myself 'I'll get there someday'.  I could have never predicted my grandma calling me in May of that year to tell me I was going to be among the first to experience Hogwarts and all it's glory.

8. When I read the last Harry Potter book, I wanted to savor it because I knew there would be nothing like it again.  I ended up taking an entire week to finish the book. Although I spent most of my time absorbing it and crying over it, this is one of my absolute favorite reading memories.


  1. Oh, I love your #8. I sometimes just pick up one of the 7 and read a bit to attempt to experience it again. But you're right, there's nothing like it.
