Top Ten Tuesday (July 26th): Top Ten Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do or Learn About After Reading Them.


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. You can check out the themes (if that’s what they’re called…) here. I think I might struggle with this week’s theme because I can only think of two things so far.

1. Mythology. 
Thanks to Rick Riordan I’ve wanted to learn more about the Greek gods. I haven’t read The Sword of Summer yet but I’ll probably want to read more about the Norse gods after that too. But that won’t just be because of that one book. I have a book about Loki (that I haven’t read) thanks to the Marvel movies. I love the Thor movies.

2. Classics.
There are a lot of books that have characters that love the classics. I have read a few classics but not as many as I’d like. My favourite, and one I’ve read more than once, is Pride and Prejudice. I have some classics on my shelves that I got with the intention of reading them but I just haven’t gotten around to them yet. One day I’ll read them.

3. Travel.
So many books have made me want to travel to the places their set in. I’m not going to name them all and the places but off the top of my head there’s France, Italy, Ireland, Scotland and England (although I have always wanted to go back there).

4. Watch the movie/TV show.
There have been a lot of books I’ve read that have been turned into movies and TV shows. I haven’t seen them all yet but I recently saw Me Before You (LOVED IT) and Allegiant (it was crazy). I was thinking of reviewing them on here because I’m running out of books to review. If you want to see what I thought of both movies let me know.

5. Fairy Tales.
This might come under classics but to be honest I don’t care. I’ve never read the original fairy tales that the Disney movies and the re-tellings I’ve read are based off. I do want to but the library I go to doesn’t have the Grimm fairy tales. I might just buy a copy of them one day. I have some of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales so I’ll start there. It has the Snow Queen which Frozen is based on and another story that Spinning Starlight by R.C. Lewis did a re-telling of.

I think I’m just going to do five this week. I’ve been really unmotivated with my blog for the last few days. I thought this might help me get back into it but it’s really not and I don’t want to drag it out.

What are some of the things that books have made you want to do?
