Top Ten Tueday: Sensory Reads

This week's topic is sensory reading memories - books you read that have very specific memories attached. This one might be hard for me, I read so many books and I often don't remember details about reading them. We'll see how it goes...

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
My dad told me about this series after reading an article in the newspaper about the third book coming out. I grabbed the first one from the library. I started it - I remember thinking in the first chapter that it was good but nothing special - until I reached the last bit of the first chapter. I got goosebumps. I was hooked.

The Count of Monte Cristo
I read this book during my study halls senior year of high school. I would sit in the stacks on the hard floor and pull books off the shelf to read. I loved this book. It's the longest book I've ever read but it was full of action.

Bridge to Terabithia
Tears every time I read this book - you know at what part.

Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake (Love By Numbers, #1)
I remember wanting to read this book because Sarah wrote a YA historical romance that I adored. I hadn't read to many romance books until this point, but I loved this book. It was funny, sweet, and charming. I'm happy to read anything Sarah writes.

The Twelve Dates of Christmas (Simon Romantic Comedies)
This book make me want to write my own "hot chocolate book" - and I wrote one about a girl in Vermont who lives on a Christmas tree farm and has trouble with her boyfriend. Hot chocolate books make me feel warm and fuzzy inside - just like hot chocolate. 

Glazed Murder (Donut Shop Mystery, #1)
This book (and the rest of the series) made me crave donuts like there's no tomorrow.

Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye (Psychic Eye Mystery, #1)
This cozy series made me want to get my palm read - still haven't done that yet.

One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, #1)
Laughter. Lots of Laughter for this series

Sugar and Ice
Made me want to take ice skating lessons

Take the Reins (Canterwood Crest, #1)
Made me want to go horse back riding!

Oh Harry Potter made my list too! I love when books make us want to learn a new skill or do something new!
