Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. This week is about books that made you want to learn something!
THESE BOOKS MAKE ME WANT TO…
Learn to play the guitar // Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover // I think this is probably my favorite Colleen Hoover book I’ve read so far. I truly loved the music aspect, especially because Ridge is not only an amazing guitar player but he is deaf as well. I really wanted to learn how to play the guitar after finishing this one.
Learn to code (well) // Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer // Cress is an amazing hacker, something I’ve always been fascinated by. She makes me want to learn how to code better, as I only know the basics now.
Bike through the Languedoc region // Labyrinth (Languedoc #1) by Kate Mosse // I’ve always wanted to visit Carcassonne, but this book made me want to bike through the whole region just to discover everything on my own.
Learn to snowboard // Falling from the Sky (Gravity #2) by Sarina Bowen // My brother has been snowboarding for years, and I’ve always wanted to learn. I’ve only tried it once, with less than great results. Yet it seems like such an amazing sport to me!
Read Homer’s works // The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller // Of course I’m familiar with the content of the stories. But I’ve never read an actual translation of Homer’s works! This book made me want to though. I want to read the original materials.
Practice sleight of hand // The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard #1) by Scott Lynch // No, I don’t have the ambition of becoming a pickpocket. But sleight of hand looks really cool, plus it would come in really handy if you want to learn some magic tricks!
Visit Florence // Inferno (Robert Langdon #4) by Dan Brown // The setting of this book just seems magical. I love Italy’s culture, architecture and vibes. Florence is one of the places I’d love to visit soon.
Visit the Caribbean (Trinidad & Tobago f.e.) // The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler // The main character of this story comes from Tobago, I believe. The way she describes her culture is absolutely enchanting. The food, the vibes, the people, the setting. It all seems absolutely magical.
Finish an epic (summer) bucket list // Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson // This is something I’ve always wanted to do. Create an amazing bucket list at the start of summer, and try to finish it by the end.
Visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter/Studio Tours // Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling // I’ve been to London a few times, yet I’ve never done the Warner Bros studio tours for Harry Potter! It’s one of my wishes, to do it asap.
Those are the things books have inspired me to do! Have you done any of these activities? Which books inspire you?
