Top Ten Tuesday – Books that Remind Me of Special Memories and People


Hello Loves! How’s your week going so far? I hope all is well and you’re having a great summer. As for me, I’m really not liking the current heat wave. It’s super hot in Los Angeles…at least for me and I’m not a fan at all. It just makes me feel so sluggish and lazy.  All I want to do is stay indoors with the AC on and just nap the whole day. I honestly cannot wait for it to be fall and winter cause I love the cold and the rain. Not to mention, they’re the perfect weather for reading.

Anyway, it’s Tuesday which means time for another TTT!!

This week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is about 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 you were eating, what you were feeling, what you were seeing, etc. It was submitted by Jessica over at A Cocoon of Books. I had fun going a short trip down my reading memory lane, so let’s take a look at the books that remind me of special memories and people.

Top Ten Tuesday, which was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and has been moved to That Artsy Reader Girl since January 16, 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Here are my picks for this week’s topic!


Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer

I saw the movie first, but was so obsessed that I binge read the series during my midterms week my senior year. It’s been quite a few years now and I still regret nothing. This series got me back into reading and pretty much made me fall in love with books.

Nicholas Sparks Books

These books always remind me of a certain ex-boyfriend. He borrowed A Walk to Remember and never gave it back. We thought we were “soulmates” like Allie and Noah. And after we had broken up and still kind of missed each other, I told him Dear John reminds me of him (since he was in the Navy and used to write me letters).

Jessica Darling Series by Megan McCafferty


My best friend, Nicole, introduced these books to me and she was kind of the one that got me into reading back in high school. I mean I read books for my classes and there were a few that I really did enjoy… but I didn’t really read for fun. Anyway, I didn’t finish the series (read only up to the second book), but someday I want to binge read it.

Addicted by Zane


Another book that Nicole recommended to me. This was the first adult/erotic book I’ve ever read and it was really out of my comfort zone. I can’t believe I actually read this in high school, but it was really good.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares


I have fond memories of this book/series because my high school girl friends and I passed this around during our senior. We also saw the movie together and kind of started our own sisterhood. No matter what, “Together and Apart” we would always try to keep in touch. Sadly, I’m not as close to some of them. Partly my fault cause I’m kind of anti-social sometimes and would rather be home than go out, hang out, club and party. I am still very close to two of them even if we never see or talk to each other. One of them is my best friend Nicole. We just always clicked… even when we had a fall out, we still remained very close. She’s just one of those people that no matter how long we don’t speak or see each other, when we do it’s like the same as always.

Well, those are some book that make me feel nostalgic and remind me of people and special moments in the past.

Have you read any of these books? What are some books that are linked to certain moments, people, or times in your life?

As always, thanks for stopping by and reading. Don’t forget to link your post so I can check it out. Have a wonderful day and a great rest of the week!

Legend of Me by Rebekah L. Purdy
Release Date: July 24, 2018
Publisher: Month9Books


No one should ever go into the woods alone.
Brielle has grown up listening to tales of a beast that attacks humans, leaving behind only a scattering of bones and limbs. It’s probably the elders’ way of keeping little children in line, but it doesn’t explain her grisly premonitions of blood, claws, and severed heads.
But when Brielle finds a mangled body in the woods, she begins to wonder if the grim stories may actually be true. Soon, Lord Kenrick, Knight of the Crowhurst Order, arrives asking questions about the legendary monster. Brielle’s attraction to him is immediate and undeniable. She volunteers to help him search for clues to the creature’s existence, despite her suspicions about his timing.
As her seventeenth birthday approaches, Brielle’s nightmares worsen and more villagers go missing. If Brielle doesn’t figure out the connection between Kenrick, the beast, and her visions, more people will die. As Brielle falls deeper in love with Kenrick and deeper into the snares of the abominable beast, she’ll become part of a legend so great, no one will ever question its validity again.
