Books That Made you Sparkle like You’re Wearing the Best Perfume Ever – Top 3 Thursdays | M&M Mariam

Good weekendddd ya’lllll!!!

This Thursday’s topic was Books that Made you Sparkle Like You’re Wearing the Best Perfume Ever.  I just finished reading Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare this morning and now everytime I think of sparkle, I think of Will Herondale’s dark blue eyes.  Lol.  He’s a pretty awesome, sparkly blue-eyed chap.  I have other comments about him, but I’ll leave that for later video on my channel!

Anywhoo, onto my top 3 books that made me sparkle and smell fabulous.

This topic sounds diva-ish, and beauty guru-ish a book filled with glamous people and places– I musta’ been in a dreamy-sparkly place when I came up with it. I feel like though it can be interpreted as making you feel glowly, like a fairy or Katniss when her dress went up in flames.

So, for this topic I would choose the following three books:


Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie

I would choose Peter Pan because after watching the Disney movie as a kid was when I fell in love with fairies.  Tinkerbell  always glowed and sparkled, and could get to places in the blink of an eye!  She was also able to cast small spells! I interned with a teacher one year in her middle school classroom — she loved Tinkerbell.  She even gave me a card with Tinkerbell on it! I will post a picture of it on my Instgram (  But, also like Navi, from the Zelda Games, she could not speak in a way everyone understood– and she spoke fast! – a habit I a fall into a lot!! Also, only Peter Pan understood her language.  And boy do I want wings someday so I can fly anywhere I want!

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

I’m going to add Clockwork Angel to the list of books that made me glow.  Cassandra Clare’s writing just makes me feel good.  The way she describes settings, people, inside and outside places makes things are usually seen as ordinary- BEAUTIFUL — and things that are already beautiful even MORE beautiful! Like  for example, the fountain in the Institute, Will’s dark blue eyes, Charlotte’s slight figure, witch-light that illuminates the old church, and of course a city already amazing:  London!


Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

I’m going to add Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to books that made me feel glowy.  I still have yet to read the book, but I watched the movie — and I think I feel strongly enough about it to make a comment one way or the other.  When I discovered that there was tournament in it (The Tri-Wizard Tournament) — that no one under the age of 17 could apply, and suddenly the Goblet of Fire (fire is glowy, btw) chooses 14-year-old, nervous Harry to compete, he helps Cedric and swims underwater to save, not 1, but 2, people.  I thrive on competition, like most people, I think! When Harry came out of that water – he was glowy! And I felt glowy for him — what an amazing accomplishment for the teenage Harry Potter.  Ever since I started reading the series, I’ve always saw this as a glowy book.  Partly because of the goblet of FIRE on the cover!

So that’s it for my Top 3 Thursday!! I’ve posted the winners of the Best of the Book Blogosphere Awards on my channel and I will be putting up my Weekly Wrap up video tomorrow including details about a new competition called the BBA ’15!

Have a great Saturday!!!
