Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Love That Were Written Over Ten Years Ago


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Books I Love That Were Written Over Ten Years Ago.  I think I focused mainly on classics the last time we did a similar topic so I decided to go a different and somewhat convoluted route this time.  I went back eleven years to 2011, and counted backwards from there to 2002, figuring out what my favorite book published in each of those years was.  It was an interesting journey for me to see how long I’ve had eclectic reading tastes and jumped from genre to genre.

    This is a great list! We have a couple in common. I loved The Nanny Diaries, and My Sister’s Keeper was my first Jodi Picoult book!

      I didn’t continue it after Larsson died either. I saw so many mixed reviews that I just decided to stop with Larsson’s final book and consider it a trilogy.

    I’ve noticed my tastes have changed or move around too over the course of years. Even blogging- looking back at my early years (that makes me feel old) I was reading such different stuff! Anyway- The Hunger games- yes! And I haven’t read Night Circus but I did read her The Starless sea recentloy- that was pretty wild.
