This week’s top ten Tuesday is really interesting – Top Ten Posts On Your Blog That Would Give The BEST Picture of YOU (as a reader and a person — so pick the 10 best reviews/posts that you wish every potential reader of your blog would see!). Neat right?! Well I’m not a book blogger but while I was thinking about this I realized that many of my favorite personality showing posts do have books at their center. I couldn’t quite get to 10 though so I have 8 for you all.
My Etsy Journey
This post was a long time coming but if you visit here regularly you know I do Etsy full time. It’s hard work but I love it. I never would have dreamed I could have such an awesome job, work from home, make things I love, all of it. This posts shares how I started and how I got from doing it on the side while trying to finish my phD to doing it full time making a real income with it.
One of my favorite things in the world is to dress my family up, particularly my husband and my nieces. They are just so cute together. Any ways this is one of my all time favorite posts just because the costumes were so freakishly cute and the girls were at such a fun age.

My First Harry Potter Birthday Party
Even though I’m postponing it this year I always have a birthday party FOR Harry Potter (last week was the big day). This post shows my true book love is by far Potter. This was my first Potter party (pictured above). Also the best part of my book addiction is that I have some awesome friends that share my obsession. It all started with Potter but they have joined me in my love for The Hunger Games, Divergent and even more. Book friends are the best. It’s like going on vacation and talking about where you’ve been but it’s way cheaper and you can travel often and all over! If you want to be Goodreads friends with me you can find me here.
Dark Days Pitch Dark Tour
I picked this one because I really love and appreciate my friends. I have some awesome people in my life and I’m super grateful. I also love books and to meet the authors of two of my favorite books (Divergent and Partials) was super neat. But most of all, if you know me you know that I wear what I love on my sleeve, literally. I am always making fan crafts and I share two in this post my Tris inspired shirt that I wore to the signing and my Insurgent book cover pendant that I like the geeky fangirl I am gave to Veronica Roth.
Top 10 Heroines
There is just something about heroines. For me I am a sucker for books that have strong characters so these are some of my all time favorite books. If you’ve read them know that will share a little bit into who I am.
Playing With a Green Screen
I love my husband he makes awesome music and this is a post about how we made a music video Dani Lion, my favorite of all his music projects. I just love the music. Our friend that does the vocals has a fabulous voice and I think he makes music that just brings out the best of her. They sound awesome together.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
I love to travel. For Christmas one year my husband surprised me with a trip to Florida to go on a cruise (I love love love cruising) and to go to Harry Potter land. It was awesome.
And finally dessert. I included this one because I just love this recipe it is super tasty and easy but also the post includes some of my favorite pictures of my nieces. And hanging out with them whether in the kitchen or elsewhere is one of the best things in the world. They are a huge part of who I am.
