Hello everyone! Top Ten Tuesday is just how it sounds, a topic is picked and we put our Top Ten for that in a post and share and check out everyone’s answers. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
But first I want to announce the winner of the giveaway winner that ended last night for a signed copy of The Last Star by Rick Yancey and that winner is.....Lara F. Congrats!
The top ten(ish) today is: Reasons I love book events!
Meeting authors- Being able to hear them talk about their work and ask questions about the book/character/anything is amazing!
The atmosphere- there is just this giddy feeling when you go to events that you can't get elsewhere.
Making friends! I've made some great friends at events because it's so easy to talk to strangers because….well you're all there for the same reason you LOVE books!
Group reads / discussions- I've been finding more and more of these and they started because I meet some people at book events.
Travel- I have so much fun going to different events! I only wish I had more money to go to all the events!
Experience- I'm kind of a shy person in life but at book events I'm normally a different person, I don't know if it's being surrounded by fellow book nerds or just excitement but since I started going to them I've found it has helped me break out of my shell in everyday life as well.
New book recommendations- because you always get more at an event!
Inspiration- I'm an aspiring author myself and as I go to these events they are full of encouragement!
Passion-I always love reading but when I go to events it sometimes feels like I have even more passion reading the books from them because I can remember!
Tell me what you think of my list in the comments below. Which would you recommend so I know which ones to get first? Also please link back to your Top Ten as well so I can check out your list and see what I missed!
