Top Ten Tuesday

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this is Top Ten Tuesday.

This week: Top Ten Bookish Memories

     Petunia by Roger Duvoisin (a children’s book read to me by my mother) – A silly goose finds a book and she thinks she is very wise and starts giving advice to the other animals; a wonderful story to fall asleep to

     Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz – I picked this book up as a pre-teen while vacationing with my family at a ski resort and freaked myself out but LOVED these stories

     R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike – I read this as a teenager and devoured them over another family vacation in Nags Head, NC where incidentally, I had my first French kiss. TMI?

)   Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte – I read this over Christmas in 1993 and it was love at first read.

     Let’s Pretend This Never Happened – by Jenny Lawson – during a somewhat stressful trip to see an ailing family member, I was able to chuckle through this hilarious memoir.

    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter  by Seth Smith Grahame – an odd choice, I know, but this book was with me on my first ever trip to New York City and was a good distraction on the train.
     Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer – I read this on a cold rainy winter’s night and couldn’t put it down.

     A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens – Senior year, a boyfriend and a group of friends couldn’t keep me away from this book for a whole week in 1994.

     A Tree Grows In Brooklyn – I read this in my birth state while visiting relatives in Kentucky.

     Gone With The Wind – another Senior year pick after I had seen the movie; I wanted to be Scarlett.

My favorite Gone With The Wind memory- I discovered the movie in high school and had it checked out when we got hit by a huge snowstorm (in PA) and we were out of school for an entire week. I watched the movie over and over again and was so excited to read the book once the snow cleared!
