Top Ten Tuesday #1

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun Meme Hosted by the Broke and The Bookish

This Weeks Topic is:  Top Ten Reasons I love being a Blogger/Reader

 

In no Particular Order

10. Authors, As a reader I use to try to contact some big name Authors and failed, I had to jump through hoops to even just talk to their assistants, through blogging I have found that not all Authors are like that, Authors to me are like movie stars, I love that I can chat to an author on Facebook or twitter and have made some great friends.  I remember the first Author I spoke to I was so amazed that they wrote me back, I was expecting an assistant and as an Indie Writer I think she thought it was funny that I didn’t believe I was talking to her.

9. Hopefully encourage others through my blog to love reading as much as I Do.

8. The excuse to drag my Husband to events, This is one of my favourites now I can use the excuse that We need to travel four hours to get to the biggest city to meet Authors, Events and Book Sales lol.

7. Web Designing, I love playing with Photo shop and because of my blog I have found a talent I did not know I had.

6. Improving my writing, I use to write stories constantly growing up, everyone loved them until my 12th grade English teacher gave me a D and I lost confidence, through blogging I hope to improve my writing to hopefully one day start a story again.

5. Reading got me through some tough times as a kid, sure I was the nerd that spent lunch in the library but at least I could escape the bullies there.

4. Books, Books and More Books, I will never be without one.

3. I can Travel in my head, Experience new cultures, worlds and Countries without leaving my home.

2. Escaping into a different Reality, When life gets tough or you need a break there is nothing like slipping into an amazing new world.

1. The Friendships, I have made so many great friends through blogging, with bloggers, Readers and Authors.

In No Particular Order

10. The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

“He shouldn’t have said that,” repeated Adrian, eerily serious. He leaned his face toward mine. “I don’t care if he’s not the emotional type or the complimentary type or what. No one can look at you in this dress, in all that fire and gold, and start talking about anachronisms. If I were him, I would have said, ‘You are the most beautiful creature I have ever seen walking this earth.”
― Richelle MeadThe Golden Lily

9. Burnt Offerings by Laurell K Hamilton

“I will bathe in your warmth ma petite. Roll you around me until my heart beats only for you. My breath will grow warm from your kiss.”
― Laurell K. HamiltonBurnt Offerings

8. Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead

“She was right about something else too,” Dimitri said after a long pause. My back was to him, but there was a strange quality to his voice that made me turn around.
“What’s that?” I asked.
“That I do still love you.”
With that one sentence, everything in the universe changed.”
― Richelle MeadLast Sacrifice

7. Dare you To by Katie Mcgarry

“That must be love: when everything else in the world could implode and you wouldn’t care as long as you had that one person standing beside you.”
― Katie McGarryDare You To

6.Club Dead by Charlaine Harris

he he he got to love Eric and his smooth pick up lines

“I have always been very fond of you.” He’d always wanted to have sex with me. “Plus, I want to fuck you.”
― Charlaine HarrisClub Dead

5.Lover Awakened by J. R Ward

“I was dead until you found me, though I breathed. I was sightless, though I could see. And then you came…and I was awakened.”
― J.R. WardLover Awakened

4. Fallen by Lauren Kate

“I’ve already had to wait so long.”
“How long?” Luce asked.
“Not so long that I’ve forgotten that you’re worth everything. Every sacrifice. Every pain.”
― Lauren KateFallen

3. The Fault in our stars by John Green

“You realize that trying to keep your distance from me will not lessen my affection for you. All efforts to save me from you will fail.”
― John GreenThe Fault in Our Stars

 

2. The Princess Bride by William Goldman

“I love you,’ Buttercup said. ‘I know this must come as something of a surprise to you, since all I’ve ever done is scorn you and degrade you and taunt you, but I have loved you for several hours now, and every second, more. I thought an hour ago that I loved you more than any woman has ever loved a man, but a half hour after that I knew that what I felt before was nothing compared to what I felt then. But ten minutes after that, I understood that my previous love was a puddle compared to the high seas before a storm. Your eyes are like that, did you know? Well they are. ”

1.  Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”

What book are you embarrassed to admit you LOVED? (try to think beyond Twilight).

I remember showing an older lady how good reads works and signed into my account and up came under books read Sex Party lol, I was so embarrassed I had just brought a few erotica books, and there they were in all their glory.  Now I am a blogger I am getting over my embarrassment at reading.
