Top Ten Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do or Learn About After Reading Them
Hi, everyone! Just wanna give a shout out and apologize about my semi-hiatus. The July Camp NaNoWriMo is wrapping up.
Anyhow, here's a quick top ten!
1.) As You Wish by Cary Elwes - I've always found sword fighting to be very fascinating. After reading this book, I wanted to sign-up for a fencing class. On guard!
2.) Pride & Prejudice - After all the walking Elizabeth does, it makes me wish I could visit the English countryside, and well, take a long walk! Maybe fish in Darcy's lake ;D.
3.) Anne of Green Gables - Makes me want to write YA/children's comedy. Her character is so delightful and zany, while also being inspiring. The world needs more modern equivalents.
4.) Hyperbole and A Half - Made me want to create my own webcomic featuring the wacky and fun situations in my life. It's still on my bucketlist. Someday.
4.) Catching Fire - Loving the Hunger Games series, I was very excited many of the movie scenes were filmed in my state. Because of the book's movie, I decided to visit The Swan House aka President Snow's mansion in Atlanta. There I am commanding the districts!
5.) Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice - Ditto with this book & movie combo. As teen, even before Twilight, I had an odd fascination about vampires as a character archetype, and whether or not such an individual could be redeemed for good. Rice's vivid descriptions of New Orleans inspired me to plan a family vacation to the historic city.
6.) Wreck This Journal - Made me get over a dab of OCD perfectionism when it comes to keeping books and neat and clean. I like for books to look new. Some people love dog-eared paperbacks...I prefer mint condition. Anyhow, wrecking a book was a challenge for me. But it made me enjoy it.
7.) Christian Paths to Health and Wellness - This text was required reading at my college. However, it had a ton of inspiring and useful information. I started a weight loss journey and went from a size 20W to a size 2. I'll post pics someday.
8.) The Wizard of Oz - If you've ever read the book or seen the movie, you have to take a hot air balloon ride!
9.) The Saddle Club series - This series made me want to own a horse so, so very badly as kid. I still like horses and daydream about owning a farm. The influence of children's lit!
10.) The Neverending Story - Encouraged me to love reading, made me want my own Luck Dragon, and, again, a horse like the beloved Artax.
