Top Ten Tuesday: Reasons to Love

I am not the kind of person that put too much thought into something so I am not going to give you 10 reason why I love something, because I just do. But I am going to give you 5 things I love.

Of course the #1 would be BOOKS!  And I am sure we can all relate to this one and we all know why we love books!

 Man, I can not live without coffee! The taste and the smell ....mmmmh.


 I love music! I listen to music while I read, it is the only way I can concentrate.

 I love rain! I love the sound of it and I love the gray skies It just relaxes me. It has been raining for about 3 weeks here in West Virginia, and I am loving it. All of the windows are open at home, so I can hear the sound of it and I can see it while I read!

My Lily Bily is the best dog ever! She loves me unconditionally and the best part is that she always keeps me company while I read!

 The second I saw this week's topic, I knew exactly what I was going to do! I already used TTT to showcase my love for Kdramas a few months back. This week, I am going to use it to show off my love for a Korean group called Bangtan Boys. 

I think it's important to note that I am not a big music fan. I don't really listen to it hardly ever, and when I do, it's usually 90s country. So my love for the Bangtan Boys (BTS) is totally out of character. But I can spend endless amounts of time rewatching music videos and clips of them on variety programs. So, allow me to give you the seven reasons that I love Bangtan Boys, and why you should love them, too! 

They are so adorable, it's hard not to get addicted to them. 

Stage name Rap Monster, Nam Joonie is the leader of BTS and tied with Jimin for my favorite member. He is so incredibly smart, and his ability to rap is just insane. Given, I don't have much to compare it to, considering I don't listen to rap, I feel confident in saying he is one of the best out there :p He taught himself English, and already his English is better than 80% of people living in the US. Plus, that smile! 

Jimin is tied with Rap Monster for my favorite of the group. And really, the two couldn't be more different. First, Jimin is very proud of his abs. Please excuse us for a short ab-dance break. 

I mean, if I had abs, I'd be proud of them, too! Jimin is mostly just adorable. He constantly needs reassurance from his hyungs that he is as awesome as we all think he is, and it can be pretty cute! Plus, he is a good dancer, and a great singer! 

If every member serves a function, Kim Taehyung (Stage name V) is the oddball. He is hilarious to watch, and he brings a whole lot of strange and lightness to the group! 

Jin is the mama duck member of the group. He is the one who takes care of the other members. He used to struggle with all of the complicated dance moves, but now watching him dance is a real treat :) 

I am including Min Yoongi (Suga) on here because I do love him, and he is an important member of the group. However, Shanese has dibs on him, and she will cut a person for eyeing Suga. I'm kind of kidding :p 

I am not gonna lie, when I first discovered BTS on Weekly Idol, J Hope was the member who I liked the least. Not that I disliked him, he just couldn't compete with Rap Monster and Jimin for my affections. But his dancing skills are just out of this world. As we have seen many times, if you are going to have an impromptu dance battle, you better have J Hope on your side, or you're going down. 

And last, but certainly not least, we have Jungkook. This is where we start branching out into pedo-noona territory. While technically of legal age here in the states, I am definitely past the age where I can lust after 18 year olds without feeling guilty. That being said, Jungkook is hella impressive in everything that he does. He is just amazing for someone so young! 

Here are some of their music videos, if you want to check them out! The captions are links to youtube.

Thanks for being patient and letting me gush about my boys :) 


  1. I love the smell of coffee even more than the taste lol. And the sound of rain coming down is always so relaxing... great lists!

  2. Ahhh, I love your list Mariela. XD Books and coffee are LIFE. Also dogs who like to keep one company while reading. :') My dog is a big fan of eating my bookmarks while I'm not paying attention though, sot hat is awkward. -_-

    And Allyson, I confess I don't know much about KDramas but THOSE BOYS ARE ALL SUPER CUTE AND I LOVE THE GIFS. :D

    Here's my TTT!

  3. I love your list Mariela! I love books, coffee, the rain, and my dog more than just about anything :) and allyson, I have never heard of this group, but they're all really cute!! :) :)

  4. Oh. My. Gosh. Your dog is SO CUTE <3 I love how dogs love you unconditionally, they're my favorite! And what kind of music do you listen to while you read? :)

    1. It depends of what it is I am reading, for Fantasy books with a good love story I listen to Bryan Adams.
      With Alien books I listen to Dido with "Here With Me".
      With Distopian books I listen the different versions of Lux Aeterna from the soundtrack of Requiem or a Dream.
      With contemporary books I just listen to whatever I am in the mood for.

  5. Awww Lily! :) I am a dog person too! Thanks for sharing a fun list!

  6. This is such a great way of using the topic. I had a few topics in mind, so maybe I should have done all the things I loved rather than focusing on one too!

  7. Some great ideas on this top ten! I too love books (obviously) coffee and rain for sure, which is good since it's rained the last week giving me a great soundtrack to read to! Never watched any kdramas but I've heard good things about them and they seem to pop up more and more on my feed.

  8. I'm more of a hot chocolate person, than a coffee person but I love your mugs!
    I wouldn;t say that I'm a massive rain fan (we do get rather a lot of rain here in the UK) but I like when it rains after a few days of sun and everything just smells so fresh :)
    Of course books made the list! And I love it when I find the perfect song for my mood, big music fan.
    I haven't heard of kdramas but the gifs made me laugh, they all look very energetic! :)
