Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday post! Today’s topic is “books I love that were written over 10 years ago” and while I thought this would be a tricky post, in the end I found so many books that I had to struggle to cut it down to just 10. But hey, that means I can do a part two in the future right? Anyway, here’s my final selection of 10 books I love that were written in or before 2012:
Free Fall by Joyce Sweeny (1997) – This is one of the first books I remember falling in love with when I was still a teenager and I’ve re-read it several times (though it’s been years now so I’m curious if I’d still love it as much now)
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan (2005) – Though I only read it when the entire series was already out, the first Percy Jackson book will always be a classic favorite.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (2007) – Definitely such a classic!
Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost (2007) – I only read this one about two years ago, but it sparked a slight obsession with the entire series that has kept me busy for those past two years.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (2008) – Another classic, I was obsessed with this series (and the movie adaptations).
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (2011) – Also a book I’ve only read recently, but that was so beautiful it’ll stay with me a long time.
Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi (2011) – Ah, I have fond memories of this one and the dystopia-rage of that time period.
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller (2011) – Another more recent read, but an instant favorite.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (2012) – My first SJM book is just barely over 10 years old, I can hardly believe it.
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo (2012) – Another favorite of mine of 10 years ago, and now 10 years later I’m still obsessed with the characters and impatiently awaiting season 2 of the TV adaptation.
