Top Ten Favourite Books I Read Before I Was a Blogger
hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
10. Looking for Alaska by John Green
Before TFIOS, this was my favourite of John Green’s books.
9. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
Love love love the narrative style of this book! One of the few books I read for school that I adored.
8. The Hollow Kingdom by Clare B. Dunkle
This book stuck with me in such an unnatural way. I always have trouble remembering the title, but there are scenes that remain crystal clear in my mind. A couple years back I discovered that it had become a trilogy and it was the best news I’d ever received. It’s a supernatural romance that predates the supernatural romance trend and avoids most of its tropes. AND IT HAS A GOBLIN KING
7. The Hunter’s Moon by O. R. Melling
This was my very first faerie book, and it completely enchanted me.
6. Wolf Tower by Tanith Lee
This book has one of my biggest OTPs. For the longest time all I would read was Tamora Pierce and this book.
5. Shade’s Children by Garth Nix
I know I’ve spoken about this book before because it is just that good. Sci-fi/dystopian at its very best.
4. I Want to Go Home by Gordon Korman
This book remains the most hilarious book I’ve read in my life. I lost my copy somewhere, and that’s just devastating to me like I can’t even explain. Like I will marry the first person to find me a copy of this book, honestly.
3. Alanna: The Lioness by Tamora Pierce
Obviously I adore all of Pierce’s books, but this was the one that started it all.
2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I have never read a book so quickly as I read this book. Thinking back, I’m still in awe of it.
1. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J. K. Rowling
I know it’s getting old, but… ALWAYS.
