Top Ten Favorite Books I Read Before I Became a Blogger

 This weeks Top Ten Tuesday is about my favorite ten books that I read before I became a blogger.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog

As a warning I will admit now that some of the books I am listing below will have shown up on previous lists. To me they are just that awesome. 

Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - This book has come up a few times in my TTT Lists, but I cannot help it. It is one of my all-time favorite reads. Jane Austen rocks.

The Coffin Quilt: The Feud Between the Hatfields and the McCoys
The Coffin Quilt by Ann Rinaldi - A book involving the feud between the Hatfield and the McCoys? I was sold. It’s a children/teen historical fiction book, but I still love to re-read it. 

The Twilight Saga (Twilight, #1-4)
The Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer - (I know, I know, but don’t judge me!) I resisted to read the books and watch the movies for so long. Then thanks to a friend, I got hooked on the books. What can I say?  I enjoyed them a lot. 

Burned (Burned, #1)
Burned by Ellen Hopkins - This was the first book I had ever read by Ellen Hopkins. The story and the characters felt real and I liked it so much I was pimping it out to all of my friends shortly after I finished it. 

Confessions of a Shopaholic (Shopaholic, #1)
Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. I love to shop, so naturally a book about a girl living in London who is obsessed with shopping was right up my alley. 

A Northern Light
A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly - Here is another book making a repeat performance on my list. I loved Mattie and her thirst/love for words and knowledge. 

Gabriel's Redemption (Gabriel's Inferno, #3)
Gabriel’s Inferno & Gabriel’s Rapture by Sylvain Reynard - Words cannot express how much I truly adored these two books. A story about love, forgiveness, healing, and much more. I loved them. So excited about book three releasing in December!

Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire - I thought Beautiful Disaster was just awesome sauce. Enough said. 

Little Women (Little Women #1/2)
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott - Little Women is a great classic that I believe everyone should read at least once in their lifetime. 

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater I read this book after I became a blogger, but I had wanted it beforehand, so I went out and bought it as fast as I could. I didn't have any intention of blogging it, but because I loved the Raven Boys so much I had to. Blue is a great character and I am very, very excited to get The Dreams Thieves when it releases in September.


  1. I totally forgot about Confessions of a Shopaholic! I love that series but I do have to admit I didn't read the last installment. I guess I will have to get around to that.

  2. I still haven't read anthing by ellen Hopkins. I'm a little ashamed about that. Great list!
    Em @ A Beautiful Madness

  5. Fantastic list of books. I had Confessions of a Shopaholic in my list but had to erase it as a new favourite came to mind :( It just didn't make the cut, it would've been #11.

    My Top Ten

    Have a great week!
