Top Ten Favorite Books I Read Before I Was a Blogger

Well, I only recently started blogging and the main reason I did was to remember all the great books I've read! So my mind is a little foggy from before, lol.

1. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter #3) by J.K. Rowling. (This is my favorite HP book, and I never thought I would like a 'kids' series so to speak. Until I read them and realized they weren't just for kids at all!)
2. Dead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse #4) by Charlaine Harris. (I enjoyed the Sookie books when I read them and this was a favorite of mine that I read a couple of times. I think I just like Eric.)
3. Catching Fire (Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins. (THG series is really what brought me back into the world of reading after taking a rather long hiatus)
4. Slammed by Colleen Hoover. (Such a sweet love story. I loved every minute of it. And the fact that every chapter opened with Avett Brothers lyrics.)
5. City of Glass (TMI #3) by Cassandra Clare (I always wanted to read TMI, but never picked them up until within the last year. I'm glad I did!)

6. Effortless (Thoughtless#2) by S.C. Stephens (Another NA series that I really enjoy. Even if it drove me crazy with the love triangle in the first book)

7. Divergent by Veronica Roth (Once I read this it was like, HG, whaaa? I liked the storyline, the characters, and the dystopian universe its all built upon.)

8. The Serpent's Shadow (Kane Chronicles #3) by Rick Riordan (When I first started this series, I was really hesitant and unsure if I would like it. I loved Percy because I studied alot of Greek mythology and have read about all of those myths and legends. I knew nothing about the Egyptian gods, but it was so cool to learn about them! This book was by far my favorite.)

9. Bared To You (Crossfire #1) by Sylvia Day. (Ok... so this is along the Fifty Shades lines, so definitely not a YA book, but it's not weird like Fifty Shades is into the BDSM crap. This book is actually about two abuse victims that are struggling to deal with their past to see if they can have a future together. I got sucked into the storyline and I'm eager to see what happens next for Gideon and Eva.)

10. Easy by Tammara Weber. (This is one of my first NA books I ever read and I loved it! I loved Lucas and how sweet and caring he was.)

  2. Great list. I totally forgot to put HP on my list. I couldn't put Hunger Games or Divergent, because I didn't read them until after I started blogging. :D I haven't read Mortal Instruments yet, but plan to start in the next month or two. Great list. Thanks for stopping by mine! :D

  6. Great List! I would say the same for my too on Hunger Games. It brought me back to reading too. However, I liked Divergent more too. If I had to pick a favorite HP book, mine would be Goblet of Fire. That is when it got real :-)

    1. I did really like Goblet of Fire too. That really is what turned everything around I think. Yay! Another person who agrees about Divergent!

  7. Yes, Catching Fire and City of Glass were both my favorites from those series! I also really liked Divergent. I'm so curious why Prisoner of Azkaban was your favorite HP book - care to share? :)

    1. Easy answer: Sirius Black. :) I loved Sirius, he's probably my favorite HP character. I liked the first two HP books, but PoA was the first I didn't want to put down for one second. And it finally gave Harry hope that he had a godfather that he could live with and that just made me so happy for him. (We see how things turned out, but still.)

  8. The Hunger Games series is actually the books that got me in to blogging! I couldn't NOT share my opinion about them. I also completely agree with City of Glass (great book) and of course Harry Potter xoxo

  13. I like how you choose which book of the series was your favorite. I just put the first one of the series on my list. :P I've heard good things about Slammed, I might have to check that out. Ooh, and I just bought Divergent last week! I'm so excited to start it, I've heard so many good things.

  14. I love 7 out of 10 of your books!!! (and the others only because I haven't read them, lol). City of Glass is actually my favorite one as well! I adored Dead to the World as well... I've only read up until #5 so far but that one is my favorite by far(so far anyways lol). I adored Eric in that book. I love your list !! And thanks so much for dropping by mine Jessica :D

    1. Thanks for stopping by Lauren! You'll have to let me know what you think of the Sookie books as you keep progressing. I liked most of them, but the last couple have irritated me a bit. But I do love me some Eric!

  15. So many good books on here I wouldn't even know where to begin! I've been a big fan of True Blood and I really want to read the Sookie Stackhouse books. I know they're very different from the show and they've got a lot of mixed reactions from people I know who've read them. I think I'll still get to them eventually and see for myself :)

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  19. To be honest, I haven't read most of the books on your list yet! Harry Potter, though... I love Harry Potter. (Is there anyone who doesn't?) They didn't make my list, but only barely. I left out about five books for every one that did make it on the list; it was incredibly tough to whittle my list down to just ten!

    1. It's always a challenge to knock my list down to 10!!

  20. All the ones I haven't read on your list are on my TBR list already! :) I've heard such great things about Easy and Divergent, though, so those are higher up on my list.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT. :)
