Tope Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Favorite Books I Read Before I Was A Blogger

Hello and welcome to my 2nd Top Ten Tuesday. Hooray! Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting.

This week's list is of my top ten favourite books I read before I was a blogger.

1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling! I'm going to lump this one all together, since otherwise it would overwhelm my list.

2. Tithe by Holly Black. Tithe was my introduction to gritty YA urban fantasy. And Faeries!

3. The Belgariad by David Eddings. Probably my favourite high fantasy series.

4. Dealing With Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede. Hello, talking dragons!

5. City of Bones/City of Ashes/City of Glass by Cassandra Clare. These books are amazing, what more can I say? Not so much book 4. Should have ended after City of Glass!

6. Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. I remember my dad reading Anne to me when I was probably 6 years old and it's still stuck with me as one of my very favourites.

7. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I remember being introduced to the Hunger Games while on a camping trip. My friend could barely stop reading to go hiking or roast marshmallows!

8. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. I read this one for my grade 5 novel study and immediately fell in love with the series.

9. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. He was my first book boyfriend, so he obviously makes the list.

10. The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks. Because survival is important for a zombie nut like me!


  1. The Hunger Games! Yes Yes Yes! I really like the cover for Tithe up there, I had never heard of that one before but I am going to be looking into it. Great list!

  2. I did not even think about Harry Potter!! Great Series! I read Hunger Games and TMI before I started blogging too.

  4. Some super good books up there! Artemis Fowl, City of Bones etc. and Dealing With Dragons. And of course Hunger Games :) I sadly haven't gotten to HP yet :/

  5. oh, this is a great list. i should have listed The Mortal Instruments, too. fantastic series.

  6. AAH I really want to read Tithe because... well. Holly Black!! I only found out about that series a few weeks ago, too! I also read City of Bones series and THG before blogging :)

  7. I have never been so happy to find someone who loves the same book series. The Belgariad is on of my all time favorites! I read the whole series at least once a year.

  8. I remember reading and loving A Wrinkle in Time when I was younger! I need to reread it soon!

  9. I am so ashamed to say that I haven't read any books above..growing up, i loved books..used to read them all the time..phew...i need to get back to my reading habits.

    I am hosting a skincare giveaway where the prize is a book and a sample skincare product. I would love for you to check it out.

    Take care

  10. Oh yes! A Wrinkle in Time! I really need to reread that one. :) And I loooove the Harry Potter books! I really didn't start reading any of these until university, really. It feels nice to revisit them!

  11. We share 3 :). I loved Artemis Fowl too! Great list <3


  12. Dealing with Dragons (and the 3 sequels) where some of my favourite books growing up, I remember sitting in my driveway trying to coble together potions from things in the yard, hahaha.

  13. Yes!! I can't believe I forgot about Anne of Green Gables. I need to revisit that one soon, since I actually didn't get to finish the entire series.
