This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie post, which comes with the fun of choosing your own topic, but it’s a double edged sword because you actually have to think of a topic! For this week’s topic, I’m going to do Top Ten Books I Read Before I Was A Blogger, as I only started blogging just over a year and a half ago, there are lots of great books that I read before I started blogging and I would love to share some of them with all of you today. So here we go, these are the top ten books that I read before I became a blogger:
- My Sister’s Keeper-Jodi Picoult-This is one of my all time favourite books, it was the first book that I read by Jodi Picoult and I completely fell in love with the story and with her writing and I’ve reread it about a million times since the first time I read it and I still love it just as much.
- Noughts and Crosses-Malorie Blackman-This book (and series) is so good and the story is such a powerful and important one.
- The Storyteller-Jodi Picoult-Oh my goodness, this book! The middle section will break your heart into a thousand little pieces, I guarantee it, but it’s so worth it because it’s such a beautiful book!
- The Harry Potter Series-JK Rowling-There is no way I couldn’t include these books on my list, they’re one of my all time favourite book series!
- Percy Jackson and The Olympian Series-Rick Riordan-Basically, ditto above, this is one of my favourite book series and Percy Jackson is one of my all time favourite male protagonists.
- The Pact-Jodi Picoult-One of my favourite Jodi Picoult books, although let’s be honest, I can say that about most of her books, but I did get this one signed (along with My Sister’s Keeper, Plain Truth and Nineteen Minutes).
- The Book Thief-Markus Zusak-Beautiful story, but guaranteed to make you bawl like a baby (I don’t really cry at books but I came awfully close with this one!).
- Nineteen Minutes-Jodi Picoult-A really interesting take on a school shooting, this is also one of my favourite Jodi Picoult books.
- Blind Beauty-KM Peyton-It’s a beautiful story of an outcast girl and the horse she loved as a child, fighting against the odds to win the biggest horse race of all.
- Plain Truth-Jodi Picoult-Such a great story, I loved learning about the Amish culture.
- Black Beauty-Anna Sewell-The only classic book that I’ve ever really loved, it’s the quintessential horse story.
- Thirteen Reasons Why-Jay Asher-It’s such a powerful, amazing story and I think a really important book to read if you’re a teenager, it shows how the little things we do can really affect someone more than you may think.
- The Truth About Celia Frost-Paula Rawsthorne-Such an intriguing mystery story, I was completely hooked on this book and could not read it fast enough, I could not wait to find out what was really going on with Celia.
So there we go, that’s my list for this week. What did you guys choose for your topics? Have you read any of the books on my list? Let me know in the comments!
I will be back with another Top Ten Tuesday next week, which will be my top ten books on my fall TBR. In the meantime however, I will be back tomorrow with a new Wishlist Wednesday post, so make sure to check that out.
