Top Ten Tuesday #16 ~ Books I Read Before I Was A Blogger

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Books I Read Before I Was A Blogger

Excuse the lateness of my Top Ten Tuesday post but I didn't have it scheduled like I normally do. Anyhow, I didn't do "Favourite" books I read before I was a blogger because strangely enough I cannot remember many books I read before I was a blogger. I've been blogging since 2008, even though I was not blogging regularly. I started using Goodreads around that time too, so there were a lot of books I've read that I did not document of having read, and I won't remember unless I see it. So here are the shortlist of the ones I could remember. 

1. Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer
2. Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld
3. Confessions of a Shopaholic Series by Sophie Kinsella
4. A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
5. Nancy Drew Series by Carolyn Keene
6. Sweet Valley High Series by Francine Pascal
7. PS I Love You by Cecilia Ahern
8. So Much To Tell You by John Marsden
9. Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta
10. Harry Potter by JK Rowling

Next Week @ Top Ten Tuesday

OMG the Sweet Valley High series!! <3 I think I read them all back when I was younger, it was so cool. :D

I did really enjoy the Twilight Saga when I read it. I've been hearing a lot of praise for Melina Marchetta lately... I need to read something of hers. :)

Great list!

Tales of Whimsy said...

I use to looooooooooooooooooove Sweet Valley High too! :)

I love listening to Nancy Drew audios. But I've only started doing it now that I'm older. I can't wait to introduce my little girl to Nancy later.

I LOVE Uglies. I read it after I started blogging but it remains one of my favorite series. Great list!

I love your background and name.
SO way cute and adorbs.

Great list. I hadn't heard of some of these. I loved the Nancy Drew series when I was a kid. I also read the Hardy Boys and have many of those books in my closet.

Thanks for stopping by The Book Connection.

It took me awhile to dig deep into my memory banks to before I blogged. The first few were easy b/c I'm always recommending them. Well, I do recommend them all, but I had to recall whether or not I blogged about them.

Prophecy Sisters is deep in TOM, the tbr. Sigh. Thanks for stopping by my top ten.

First of all, your header (and really the whole blog) is beautiful!! And secondly, I loved the Nancy Drew and Sweet Valley series. I've got PS I Love You on my to-read list, but I wish I had read it before I saw the movie.

Lisa Jean said...

Several of you books are ones I never heard of or heard of but never read. So I will have too look into them!

Also Harry Potter is amazing!

Cool list :D A lot of my old favourites are on here, like Nancy Drew and Harry Potter.

I've only read the first book in the Uglies series so far. I really need to get the others.

Twilight and Harry Potter were definitely my favorite series before I was a blogger. I LOVED both of them. Yes, even Twilight. :)

Jessica said...

I love a little princess! All the Nancy Drew books also.
Nancy Drew was one of the first "big kid" books I ever read.
Fun list!

I loved the Sweet Valley High books when I was younger. So good! I also liked reading Confession of a Shopaholic...but I never read the rest of the series for some reason.

Unknown said...

Great list! I love Nancy Drew and Harry Potter especially. I haven't read any of Sophie Kinsella's books yet, but I hear such good things about them that I plan to soon.

Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

Oh, my God. The Nancy Drew books are so awesome! Harry Potter is a classic, everyone should have them in their top ten books ever.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Twilight <3
I also liked PS I Love You. But my favorite from Cecelia Ahern is If You Could See Me Now. Have you read that book?

Julianne said...

I loved A Little Princess and the Harry Potter series - and I really need to read more Melina Marchetta!

I remember the Sweet Valley High Series! Can't believe I forgot to add them to many great books I read before becoming a blogger I would need a top 100 list..LOL
