I haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday in a very long time, so I’m excite to do it again. Top Ten Tuesday is the first Bookish meme I took part in when I started out as a book blogger LINK TO FIRST REVIEW
This week the topic is “Top ten recommended books I’ve read.” This one is easy. When I was in college, before the Goodreads phone app, I wrote down all the books I found in BN. Now that I follow Booktube channels and other blogs, I’ve come across many rec’d books.
- The first one is blatantly obvious and I’m embarrassed that I hadn’t read it until this year: The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. It is now easily one of my favorite series, though the Hunger Games and Harry Potter top the charts.
- On that note, The Infernal Devices, a series that took place in the middle of The Mortal Instruments is a steampunk series.
- Throne of Glass series. It’s funny. I got Queen of Shadows the day it was released, as I did with Empire of Storm. It feels like QOS only just came out and I…omg…haven’t read it yet. I was just happy to own it. I made it about a chapter in and stopped.
- ACOTAR. I read this book when it was released, but because it was Sarah J. Maas I knew I’d have to read it, as did my other book blogging friends. I now have A Court of Mist and Fury and that, too I haven’t read.
- On the topic of buying books I haven’t read yet–I have Lady Midnight and I haven’t even finished The Mortal Instruments series. It’s still fun owning it and getting excited about it with all the other book bloggers.
This list turned into a list of books I own but haven’t read. Well, not quite. That would actually make for an AMAZING list that would be far, far too long. Regardless, I thank book bloggers everywhere for introducing me to these books!
