Top Ten Favorite Books I read before I was a Blogger

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and Bookish

I find it so hard to remember what I've read before I became a blogger. Here are some of the titles I know for sure I read before I was a blogger.

The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
Do I really need to explain this series? I have love this series ever since I first started it when I was around ten. It is, and always will be, one of my favorite series.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
This was one of the series that really brought me back into Young Adult. I bought it on a whim while I was shopping on Amazon, and I never regretted it. 

His Dark Material by Philip Pullman
I read this series when I was a child in French, and my copy is almost destroyed. I think I read it over twenty time, and I took it with me on a few trips.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman
I fell in love with Gayle Forman/s writing with this book. It was one of those lucky discovery, as I had never heard of that book before buying it. I saw it a the right time, and it came home with me.

My Side of the Story by Will Davis
This book was both touching and hilarious. I bought this book mostyl because it stood out on the shelves, and it got me curious. 

Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
One of the rare adult series I still read up to this day. I think I read the first four books in less than two days. 

Aliss by Patrick Senecal
This book is written by a Quebec author, and I don't think there is any English translation. Still, Aliss is probably one of the most weird and extrem retelling of Alice in Wonderland I have ever read. Let's just say it's for an older audience.

I didn't make it to ten this week, but I chose books I really loved.
What is YOUR Top Ten this week?


  1. I picked His Dark Materials as well. I love that series.

  2. I have no idea why I didn't put Harry Potter on my list. I guess because I just did a re-read and actually did blog posts about it.. so it doesn't count now. Here is my list:

  3. Gah, If I Stay was so good! But I forgot to put it on my list! What was I thinking?! Love the rest of your list as well!

    My TTT

  4. If I Stay was one of the first books I reviewed when I started my blog! It's also one of the very, very few books that has made me cry. That scene with Mia and her Grandfather when he gives her permission to die? I bawl like a baby.
    I love those covers for His Dark Materials.

  5. YESM YES YES for Harry Potter and The Vampire Academy! :D
