Top Ten Tuesday (75)- My Top SIX Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do or Learn About After Reading Them

Hi thanks for stopping by!!! And welcome to my Top 10 Tuesday post! 

Thanks to the lovely ladies at The Broke And The Bookish for creating this weekly meme!

Here's this week's topic.

July 26: Top SIX Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do or Learn About After Reading Them 

This one is a tough one! I'll try to make 10 but doubtful.

1. Glass Blowing. I have been wanting to try this ever since I read The Study and Glass books by Maria V. Snyder!


2. Herbology and their uses for healing, etc. There are a ton of books I've read that have this in them but the most recent is CLANLESS book 2 in Jennifer Jenkins Nameless series!


3. Swordfighting. Ok with all the fantasy books I read there would be too many to name but here's a few An Ember in The Ashes Series by Sabaa Tahir, The Snow Like Ashes Series by Sara Raasch, The Court of Fives Series by Kate Elliott, & Blood of Gods and Royals Series by Eleanor Herman.


4. Driving a race car like Colten Tayler in Lucy D. Briand's MAGNETIC SHIFT. I love racing have always been a huge fan of NASCAR so I think this would be awesome!


5. Panning for gold like the characters in Rae Carson's The Gold Seer Trilogy. I already learned how to do this as a kid so I guess I should say I would like to re-learn this one. Plus I live in California and I know there's still some gold left in the hills :)

6. Cooking. Ok yeah I'm already a good cook but I can always improve and expand my recipe base. Some recent books that have made me hungry and want to expand my cooking knowledge are Martina Boone's The Heirs of Watson Island Series,  Cindy Pon's Serpentine Series, and Evelyn Skye's THE CROWN'S GAME. I even made Pinterest boards for Martina's and Evelyn's books! 

Ha! Ok I got 6 more than I thought!!!!

So what about you? What are some of your favorite books set outside of the US? And check back next week for my Ten Books I'd Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed Me A Fully Loaded Gift Card! 



  1. I put fencing on my list - but really I'd like to learn how to use any kind of bladed weapon. I used to be interested in glass blowing until I actually saw it up close that is... :)

    Check out my TTT.

  2. Yes to fencing! The Princess Bride by William Goldman made me want to fence! And also - glass blowing looks like so much fun!

  3. I had swordfighting on my list this week too.
