Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Books I Read Before I Was a Blogger

This week I'm focusing on my favorite books that I read before I became a book blogger.   I am sure my "classics" list in itself would be way longer than ten books, so I wanted to avoid them.  Here's a pretty good mix of some young adult and adult books that I enjoyed before I started my blog.

1.  The Vampire Academy series (Books 1-4) by Richelle Mead
1.  The Book Thief by Markus Zusak


3.  Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series by Ann Brashares 
4.  Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris (Books 1-9)


5.  The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
6.  The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger


7.  Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
8.  Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding

9.  Circle of Friends by Maeve Binchy
10.  Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo

So, what do you guys think of my list? Have you read any of these books? Let me know your thoughts. (This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, so check it out!)


  1. Fantastic list! It is because of the book blogging community that I read Vampire Academy but I read all of the other books on your list in my pre-blogging days (except Because of Winn-Dixie which I still haven't read). The Harry Potter books are my favorite of course. :)

  2. Harry Potter would definitely have made my list if I'd participated this week.

  3. Bridget jones is on my list too but I totally forgot about devil wears prada! Madness! Here's the link to mine :-)http://fabulousbookfiend.blogspot.co.uk/?m=0

  4. I loved the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series and Harry Potter (which I somehow forgot to add to my list Oops). I did read The Devil Wears Prada, however, I however I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. I hoped that somehow the movie would fix the few problems I had with the book and instead it ruined the only character I liked.

  5. I haven't read The Devil Wears Prada, but I love the movie! It's so cool, especially Meryll Streep! She's really great in this movie. :) And the clothes...woohoo!

  6. I read VA before the blog too Christina! Love that series so much:) I also read the Sookie books, though I haven't gotten caught up in that series. She lost me around book 8 or 9 I think and I gave up. Still, I want to finish the series just to finish, so we'll see:)

  7. Awesome list! Harry for me too! And Maeve!

  8. I'm all about The Sisterhood books! I have a special place in my heart for them!

    My TTT

  9. Great list! Harry Potter is on so many list's today as it's just so awesome! I still need to read the Book thief though, I know I must. Vampire Academy is amazing too! I would like to read the Other Boleyn girl. Happy reading!

    My Top Ten!

  10. I didn't get a chance to throw together a list for this but I KNOW Harry Potter would have been on it! <3

  11. Thanks for checking out my list, everyone! I appreciate it.

  12. I also put the other boleyn girl & the traveling pants on my list! :)


  13. Oh gosh, I love Because of Winn-Dixie! And HARRY POTTER for sure. I also love Bridget Jones's Diary. Such a funny book.


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
