I skipped last weeks theme because I didn’t own or read a lot of short stories or novellas, really sorry.
This weeks theme is Books with Sensory Reading Memories. (These are the books that are linked to very specific memories for you: where you were, what time of year it was, who you were with, what are you eating, what you were feeling, what you were seeing, etc. Ideas include books you read while on vacation, books that you read while eating, books you read at work/at a family or social event/on the train or plane, books you’ve buddy read with loved ones, books you read during an emotional time in your life, books you read by the fire, etc.)
Now I couldn’t do ten because I could only think of five. But the thing that I do the most while reading, is sitting in my room with a mug of coffee and in my PJ’s.
The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly
I have had this books for YEARS. I remember going into Waterstones and I was buying some books (Obviously), and at the counter, one of the employees said that there was an offer on the books and recommended this book to me, I read the blurb and purchased it. I remember getting very into the book but then I must have gotten distracted and put the book down. I had regretted to finish the book and tried to read it again. It took the 4th try to actually accomplish reading this book. I listened to it mostly at work and I remember doing a big task which involved moving stock around in the stockroom and I used the time to listen to it on audiobook, from what I remember, it took about 2 hours to finish and I was satisfied with the task as well as getting very into the book.
The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
I read this book two years ago, I remember because I had a opticians appointment and it’s every two years in which I have my new appointment coming up this week. I also remember after my appointment, I decided to go and see my Mum’s friend in London and got on a train to see her. I had enjoyed going there and I remember trying very hard to get into the book, but of course, I did end up enjoying.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
I picked this book up because I loved Emila Clarke and was very intrigued by the hype that was made about this book and movie. I remember reading the part when Lou and Will are talking on the beach, and I was sitting on the bus on my way home almost at the brink of tears. I had to shut the book to compose myself.
Omens by Kelley Armstrong
Back in 2016, I took part in the slowathon, it was the second readathon that I had ever participated. And the purpose of the readathon was to take your time of the book, annotate your books, maybe write something that you’re inspired from the book or try other methods to enjoy the content. While I was excited to participate, I picked this book up because I love Kelley Armstrong and wanted to read her new series. I was so excited for the readathon, that on the first day I read half the book and couldn’t leave it alone. I remember mentioning it on Twitter or Instagram and the host of the readathon replied: “Every page is worth something!”.
Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me by Lousie Rennison
Haha, all the titles from this series can’t make me stop smiling because it was always my favourite. I remember seeing the last book in Tesco, I didn’t immediately buy it but I did read the end (I do that a lot, I like to know if the ending is good or not) and I remember reading it in Tesco and being really happy about it.
And those are the ones thatvI could think of. Hope you are having a lovely day xx
