Top Ten Tuesday: Things Books Make Me Want to Learn or Do

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic and this week’s topic is: Top Ten Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do or Learn About After Reading Them

1) Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler – I really wanted to learn how to make my own custom cupcakes after this book. All of the cupcakes described at the beginning of the chapters just made my mouth water.

2) Breathe, Annie, Breathe by Miranda Kenneally – So this isn’t something that the book made me want to learn how to do, but it kind of got me in the mood to start running again. It also made running a marathon seem a lot more doable…I got over that idea quickly though.

3) Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czukas – This book made me want to work at a grocery store. Not seriously, but like…if I lost my job and had to get another one I’d consider working at a grocery store.

4) How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer – Similar to the last book, this book made me want to work at an amusement park.

5) The Start of Me & You by Emery Lord – This made me want to join a Quiz Bowl team. High School Musical also made me want to join Quiz Bowl, but this book really renewed that interest.

6) To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – Two things from this book: it made me want to be a better baker (storing frozen cookie dough so you can make cookies whenever sounds like a great idea) and it also made me want to try more Korean food.

7) Lock & Key by Sarah Dessen – This book made me want to work at a kiosk in the mall. A lot of these books make me want to work other places apparently.

8) Exit, Pursued by a Bear by E.K. Johnston – This book is about a really heavy topic, but despite that, it still made me want to try out Cheerleading. Hermione’s team is just really supportive overall and it seems like it would be really awesome to have that kind of support system.

9) The Trouble with Flirting by Claire LaZebnik – I always thought sewing seemed like a really cool idea and also like something that I could potentially be really good at because I really like precision, but I just don’t think I have the patience for it.

10) The Comeback Season by Jennifer E Smith – I love baseball, but I wouldn’t say that I’m a superfan. This book really made me want to be a better baseball fan and care more about my home team (go Mariners!).
