Top Ten Tuesday (April 26, 2016): Bookworm Delights


Happy Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Bookworm Delights. Thinking about this list makes me want to break out and start singing “My Favorite Things” bookworm edition!

Let’s begin!


1. Not having to work on the weekends because that means MORE TIME TO READ!

I hate having to work on the weekends because I get ABSOLUTELY NO READING DONE. I love being able to lie around and do nothing but read all day. There is seriously no better way to spend my weekend than with a book in my hand.

2. Strong, sturdy books that don’t bruise easily when I throw them across the room!

I’m a bit of a violent bookworm, so when I get frustrated with a book, I do not hesitate to throw it across the room. I remember when I threw Eclipse across the room. I was so annoyed, I left it on the floor for three days. I clearly need anger management, LOL.

3. Books that cause me to fall over.

I’m an emotional reader so majority of the times you can find me lying on the floor when reading. There have been times when I’ll be sitting in a chair while reading and then the next minute, I will be on lying on the floor paralyzed with emotions. Those are always the 5 star reads for me!

4. Bonding over books with friends/new people.

I don’t have many friends IRL who read so when I do manage to meet someone who likes books, it excites me! Especially, when I get to meet other readers who enjoy the smutty reads. I have NO SHAME in my smut game XD!

5. When my playlist is in-sync with my current read.

Majority of my reading is done on public transportation when I’m going to and coming from work and majority of the time, I will listen to music while I read. This can be a great experience because when a song comes on that perfectly fits the scene I’m reading…DEAD! Too much emotions all at once and I love it!

6. When someone says that they enjoyed one of my recs.

I don’t usually recommend books because I don’t want another person to read a book I love and say they hated it. So on the off chance I do give out a rec and then that person comes back gushing after having finished one of my faves, I feel quite pleased with myself. I have done my good deed for the day.

7. When a release date is pushed forward.

UMM, because NO ONE LIKES the waiting game!

8. Rainy days (typical bookworm delight).

Who doesn’t love reading on a rainy day. It’s so calm and relaxing and my dog tends to snooze the day away which means I can spend more time reading and less time trying to keep her out of trouble.


YAAS! I do most of my book purchasing during the summer months and at the end of the year because those are the times when most of the sales occur in the states and on BookOutlet. Between the months of June-August and November-December, I will usually have a shipment of books arriving. Book mail, BOOK MAIL EVERYWHERE!

10. When I can finish a book before the eReader dies (WIN!). 

This is always a WIN for me because my iPad mini is slowly dying and I refuse to get a new one and I hate having to constantly charge it so when I get to finish a book before it reaches red, I am so excited. The only bad thing is that I have to wait until it is fully charged to start a new book.

That’s all for this weeks TTT.

I'm Ari, a local NYC bibliophile and a forever daydreamer. You can usually find me with my nose buried in a book and my head up in the clouds. I am also a coffee addict and a chocolate connoisseur. I fell in love with the romance genre about three years ago and I haven't been able to stop reading about happily-ever-afters, which is ironic because I'm a bit of a cynical romantic in real life, haha. I hope you all enjoy my blog and fangirling with me about all the smutty reads!

  1. Eek!
    A book thrower!?!?
    I am a little shocked. The concept is foreign to me and I have never had that urge.
    Counselling might not be such a bad idea, Ari…
    Just kidding! I am sure the act is most cathartic.
    ~Icky. 🙂

  2. OMG, I don’t often read while listening to music (except instrumental ones) because my concentration sometimes just breaks, but when I happen to be in the mood for that and the music and the story align perfectly, IT’S SUCH A PERFECT MOMENT.

    And rainy days just make reading that much more amazing. There’s just something about it, though I can’t put my finger on what exactly. 😛

    Here’s my list!

  3. I only ever listen to instrumentals when I am reading but I have had several moments where the piece of music matches up to the mood of the chapter I’m reading and I usually end up and emotional mess during these moments haha.

    Bargain buys are definitely a highlight. I feel less guilty for buying books when they’re on sale. The downside to this is that I end up buying more books so my purse still ends up suffering haha.

  4. You’re a violent bookworm? I’m shocked, Ari! 😉

    Anyway, yes to all of these! I don’t actually throw my books, but I do slam them against soft surfaces such as pillows, beds, blankets, etc. I love that someone can just walk in and find you on the floor wallowing in your reading-evoked-emotions. I tend to keep everything in and then tweet, or type/scribble notes furiously to get it out, haha.

    I never have to worry about my e-reader dying because kindles = a month of life, lol. You should join the dark side. 😉 jkjk

    Great post! My TTT. (:

    1. LOL, I try to keep the violence to a minimum (try being the operative word, lol).

      My parents are always yelling at me to get off the floor. But my dog likes it because she gets hugs while I read, lol. I didn’t realize the Kindle battery lasts that long. I’ve considered getting an eReader other than my iPad and I think I might just do that. I would get so much more reading done!

      1. A for effort in trying to keep the reading peaceful. 😉 lol

        Haha my dog loves it when I’m on the floor too! She becomes one with my lap.

        I was totally kidding about the kindle lasting a month (although it lasts forever if you’re in a reason slump and not using it. lol), but I’d say it lasts a solid 4/5 days to a week with solid 1 hr + reading sessions. I recommend!
