Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish

I am a fairly new blogger, I haven't even hit the year mark yet (although it is coming up *eeep*) so I really love this weeks topic. I feel like there are so many books I love that I never got to fully flail about on my blog because I didn't have it when I read the book. This week gives me the perfect excuse to flail and I love to flail. So without further adieu, here are my favorite books I  read before I began blogging.

1. City of Glass by: Cassandra Clare- I actually read a majority of this series prior to blogging, but of all the ones I read before my blog existed, this one is probably my favorite. I love how everything finally came to a head in this one and I loved when we finally got our Jace and Clary moment. 

2. The Iron Knight by: Julie Kagawa- I read all the books in this series prior to starting my blog, but this one is my favorite of that series. Partially because I got to read from Ash's POV and partially because we finally got our HEA.

3. Clockwork Angel by: Cassandra Clare- I ADORED this book! I loved meeting the ever wonderful Will Herondale and I loved seeing another part of the Shadowhunter world.

4. The Hunger Games by: Suzanne Collins- This book blew me away when I first read it.  It was my first dystopian novel and because of that it was like nothing I had ever read before. I loved Katniss and felt like she was such a great heroine.

5. The Last Olympian by: Rick Riordan- I love the Percy Jackson books, especially this one. I loved watching Percy and Annabeth grow up and I remember becoming really obsessed with Greek mythology after finishing this series.

6. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by: JK Rowling- This series holds a very special place in my heart. This is the series that made me fall in love with reading, way back when, when I was a little kid. I have visited the world time and time again and it just never gets old. Each time I re-read I find something new to love about these books.

7. The Return of the King by JRR Tolkien- I am a complete LOTR nerd. I love the books and the movies and the whole world. I got lost in this series for days when I first read them.

8. Twilight by: Stephenie Meyer- Say what you want about this series, but I loved it when I discovered it years ago. I fell head over heels in love with Edward and Jasper and Emmet and just the story in general.

9. A Dance With Dragons by: George RR Martin- These books are incredible! I loved this one in particular because I got to see a lot of my favorite character... Daenaerys. 

10. Eragon by: Christopher Paolini- I really had a thing for fantasy back in the day, and this was no exception. I loved everything about this book and this series.

What is on your list? Link me.


  1. I'm rereading HP with Once Upon A Chapter's readalong and I'm falling in love with that series all over again. It's soooo good. And I'm reading City of Glass right now. CC is killing me with putting Simon through so much. He's my favorite and he always gets the short end of the stick lol. great list! My TTT

  2. I loved The Last Olympian, too! Clockwork Prince also sounds great. Amazing picks!

  3. Oooo, several of these would be on my list, too! I love this post and haiiii, blogoversary coming up soon!! Eeeeeep! Awesome Top Ten, wifey *flails with you* <3 <3 <3

  4. There are so many good books and it is hard to remember which ones I read before and after I began blogging. Sigh. I agree with several of your selections.

  5. Great list! Numbers 7, 9, and 10 are the only ones we don't have in common. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Almost all the books on your list I read before blogging but for some crazy reason didn't put them on my list!! AYE! Here is my list:
    Top Ten Tuesday


  7. I can't believe it!! How could I forget LOTR and HP and Hunger Games!!! Aaaaa I'm screaming. Anyway high fives for Clockwork Angel ;) I've read both CA and CP before blogging :) Iron Fay I've read later but I love it :) Great list :)

  8. Some great reads there. As you know, I have recently read my way through The Mortal Instruments and Book 1 & 2 of The Infernal Devices. Both series are awesome. Twilight is one of my favorites too!
    I've been meaning to read The Hunger Games - maybe one day soon.

  10. Great list! I also put City of Glass and included a book from HP and HG! I came so close to put putting Percy and the Last Olympian but ended up going with a different Riordan book. And I loved the Iron Fey series!

  11. You've got some great books there! LOTR is on my TTT list, too. I love Harry Potter, Percy Jackson was a lot of fun, and the Iron Fey series is growing on me. One of these days, I'll get to the Cassandra Clare books...

  12. I'm currently on the second IRON FEY book, so I'm excited to hear we get Ash's POV eventually! :D

    Here's Mine @ Pinkindle Reads & Reviews

  13. Great List! I am getting ready to start Clockwork Angel. Love Hunger Games and HP! Thanks for stopping by my TTT.

  14. Wow, so many good books here! I love City of Glass (actually the whole first three TMI books!). The Jace and Clary moment is AWESOME!

    Clockwork Angel is fantastic, too. I have mixed feelings about Clockwork Prince. I mean, I love it, but love triangles I hate, so it makes me a bit uncomfortable with the book. I haven't read Clockwork Princess yet! I'm so so so nervous!

    I couldn't agree more with you about rereading HP. Everytime I find new things to love and appreciate about the series.

  15. I've read six of your picks and enjoyed them all! I'll have to take a look at more of your recommendations. Great list!

  16. Great list! Love HP :)


  17. Yes!! Love Hunger Games, Percy Jackson, LotR, Harry Potter, Iron Fey... fantastic list. :D

    My Top Ten

  18. Great, fantastic list!! So many great books I see up there!! Oh yes!! And some I haven't read yet... heheeheehe XD

    Love this post!

  19. Oh man. You have most of my favorites on your list!!
    1,2,3,4,5,6,8... the others aren't my favorite yet because I haven't read them..but I will!
    Great list! :)

  20. Many good books here! Although, some of them I read after I started blogging. Harry Potter, Tolkien, Julie Kagawa and Cassandra Clare are some of my favorite books / authors. The beauty of lists like this is that you can't think of everything you've ever read, so you forget things, but then someone else remembers for you. So that's nice.
