Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish
Gateway books published 5, 10, or 15 Years Ago
Fun fact: I took a college a day the day Twilight came out in theaters. The reasons being so I could go to my favorite coffee shop, read Twilight before the movie, and have a date with a boy I had a crush on (who is now my hubby so win win). I have to say that was one of the best days I ever had.
This book got me back into reading like many of you, and I will always love Twilight for that.
I read Twilight over, over, and over again. This was one of the first books that got me to end my Twilight reading marathon. I read many of the books, but lost interests after awhile. Too many books in the series for me.
I read Harry Potter my first year of college. The obsession was real, and still is.
Another fun fact: Chris and I love this series so much we named our cat Percy.
Sadly our Percy isn't brave like Jackson. However when he finds one of my bobby pins he does become entertaining, and he is a lovable little thing. So I guess he has SOME of Jackson's qualities.
I loved this book, and it introduced me to middle grade reads.
This was one of the first sequels that I truly loved.
Anna and the French Kiss was the first contemporary book I ever loved, and it pushed me to give this genre more of a chance.
I mean do I need to say anything about this one? Well okay but only one word, Will.
This bad boy was my introduction to dystopian reads. I was hooked from the first page. Also this was the first book Chris and I read together.
The Goddess Test introduced me to what I like to call the "pallet cleanser" books. The ones that you read during a book slump, or when you've finished a heavy book that left you drained. It's nice and fluffy. It's a fun read to get you back into the swing of things.
I really loved Kami in this book. She had a strong personality and unapologetic lived her life the way she wanted, and it was thrilling to read! In another life I would like to think I would be a journalist, and I got to live through Kami. The main female protagonists showed me that not all YA girls are completely dependent on others.
Question for you: Did this weeks Top Ten make anyone else feel old? I felt older and older with every book I put on this list haha!
