I really, really loved this topic when I first read it! There are so many books that I read (and I’m sure you do too) that don’t get talked about enough on my blog or with my friends and I wasn’t going to miss out on the opportunity to talk about them! So without further ado, these are the top ten books I really love but I feel like I haven’t talked about in a while!
Eragon by Christopher Paolini
This was the first fantasy series I read when I was younger and it made me fall head-over-heels in love with the genre.
The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
This was one of the first ‘big’ series I read when I discovered the online book community. While I also read The Mortal Instruments series, this one definitely stuck in my mind more. I love the time period and something about them was a lot more exciting.
The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
Before reading this book I hadn’t read many adult novels. I’ll admit I had already seen the movie, but I still whole-heartedly enjoyed this book and it’s definitely one I’d like to re-read in the future.
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
I picked this book up after my mum read it for her book club a couple of years ago and enjoyed it a lot more than I was expecting! I have yet to read any other Khaled Hosseini books yet, I definitely want to after reading this masterpiece.
172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad
There were a lot of booktubers talking about this book a couple of years ago, and while looking back this book probably wasn’t as amazing as I remember, it was one of the first in its genre that I read and I really want to re-read it sometime soon!
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
I loved this book. I don’t really know how to talk about it in any other way. One day I would really like to re-read and review this one, but I’m not positive when that will happen.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
If you were on booktube/bookstagram/book-blogs a couple of years ago I’m positive that you will have heard countless of things about this book: good and bad. When I first read this one I couldn’t believe how much I loved it. I fell head over heels in love with this book and E. Lockhart’s writing style. Looking back, it probably wasn’t as good as I remembered, but it still holds a dear place in my heart.
The Glass Sentence by S. E. Grove
There weren’t many people talking about this book when it first came out (and there still aren’t many people talking about it – let’s change that!) but I immediately fell in love with the concept of this book and picked it up. I have yet to continue the series, but I really hope to change that in the future.
Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells
I read this book for the first time after hearing it referenced on Gilmore Girls. I’m not sure why I was so intrigued to read it, but something about it really grabbed my attention and I remember loving this book. I probably couldn’t tell you one thing that happened in it nowadays, but I really want to re-read it and talk about it again soon!
It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini
Back in the day, I became massively obsessed with mental health books (I still am)! This was one of the few books always listed in the top ten most popular mental health books etc so I obviously had to pick it up. While there were a few flaws in this and looking back it probably wasn’t as good as I remember, it definitely suited me for the time in my life that I read it!
So that is my Top Ten Tuesday this week! Have you read any of these? Let me know! Also, did you do this weeks topic? I’d love to read yours, so please link them down below!! X
