Top Ten Tuesday: Pre-blogging reads
April 9, 2013 § 11 Comments
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish and this week is all about those books you read before you started blogging. Without further adieu, my top ten books before I was a blogger.
1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I didn’t read this long before I became a blogger, but it will forever have a place on my favorites shelf no matter what.
2. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I started reading these books right when they came out and pretty much grew up with Harry and the Gang.
3. The Sweep series by Cate Tiernan. Aside from Harry Potter, this was the first series that I read religiously and to this day I still re-read it.
4. The Odyssey by Homer. I read this in high school and fell in love with it right away.
5. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Does this one even require words? It’s simply amazing.
6. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. I have to say, even now if I tried to review this book, I’m not sure I would be able to find the words.
7. Define Normal by Julie Ann Peters. I remember buying this book in middle school because I liked the cover and I ended up reading the heck out of it and loving it more than I ever thought I would. To this day I’m still trying to keep up with Peters work.
8. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I think this is another one that doesn’t require explanation.
9. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. This is a book that probably every teenager should read because it deals so well with important issues and is simply amazingly written.
10. Choke by Chuck Palahniuk. This book opened my eyes to a whole new world of reading… a whole new world. Anyone who’s read Palahniuk probably knows what I mean, lol.
So, there’s ten of my favorite reads from before I was a blogger. Do you share any? What are yours? Do tell.
