Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
This week we are talking about the top 10 books I loved during the first year I started blogging!
I started blogging in… 2013. That is forever ago! I can’t believe I’ve been a part of this amazing community for so long! I don’t post as frequently as I used to due to a full time job and working out, etc, but I still love reading, reviewing and joining in the book talk on twitter! I really couldn’t imagine NOT having this part of my life! Some of my very best friends are people I met through blogging so for that I am so so grateful!
Here are ten books I loved during that very first year of blogging! I think my tastes may have changed slightly since four years ago and sometimes I get nervous when I think about rereading — will I still love it the same??
1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins:
Gosh I was so invested and loved it so much! But I really didn’t like the last book in the series… but still, doesn’t take away from the fact I did love this first book.
2. Divergent by Veronica Roth:
This must’ve been the year of all the dystopians! I really liked this one and oh gosh I loved Four so much. I waited to read the second until the third came out so I could binge it and then… well, I found out spoilers and then I was like NOPE.
3. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout:
JLA was how I found out about blogging! I binge read the Lux series and her Covenant series AND Wait for You in a matter of weeks and loved it all!
4. Losing It by Cora Carmack:
This NA series made me love Cora! I’ve since read so many of her books!
5. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo:
Oh gosh, I didn’t realize I read this so long ago! I think this is one series that holds up with time for me! Because Grisha is still one of my favorite fantasy series and I LOVE Leigh! I can’t believe I got to meet her in 2013 before her signings became so crazy, haha.
6. Pivot Point by Kasie West:
Oh my gosh I LOVED THIS BOOK. I stayed up until like 2 am to finish it. I need to reread this and read the second book already but I’m nervous about the second book for… reasons. And can you believe I still need to read more of Kasie West?!
7. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead:
AHH this series! <3 I binge read most of this series in a hazy weekend and it sent me into the worst book hangover everrrr. I desperately want to reread this series sometime but this is one I’m crazy nervous about not loving as much!
8. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry:
All the emotional stories and characters from Katie McGarry! Loved PtL and the other two in the series!
9. Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas:
Now, this is one I think I’ll stand by – I still say this is the best YA thriller I’ve read. SO TWISTY and caught me completely off guard. I recommend it to everyone!
10. Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis:
I binge read like the first four books in this series in one go! I really want/need to read more in this series! (I have since read other series by Jill Shalvis!)
