Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely folks at The Broke and Bookish. I’ve seen quite a number of these posts lately, so here I am jumping on the bandwagon! This week is all about books I feel differently about after time, divided into books I love more and books I care about less.
5 Long Lasting Loves:
- Ranger’s Apprentice by John Flanagan. I just started rereading the series a few weeks ago, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I still enjoyed watching each character grow and the world develop. Shoutout to my ex for recommending the series to me years ago.
- Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews. This was one of the first reviews I did for the blog, and I ended up breezing through the entire series faster than I could review them, because I love them so much. I first picked up an Ilona Andrews book from the seat of my mom’s car while waiting for her to get groceries in 2012, and I never looked back.
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Surprising no one, this is forever a staple on almost all of my top 10 lists. I also read this for the first time in 2012 and have since read it at least 6 times in the past 4 years.
- A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. Sometimes I think that one of these days, it just won’t live up to the time I cried on my couch for an hour after finishing the series for the first time. So far, it’s still one of my all-time favorites.
- Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I’ve long since abandoned my undying affection for teen vampires (burned my Twilight posters and everything), but Mead’s dhampirs hold a special place in my heart.
5 Books I Lost My Love For: I ended up losing interest after the hype died down and I reread them, realizing I just wasn’t as into them as I originally thought.
- Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber.
- City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.
- Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins.
- Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell.
- An Abundance of Katherines by John Green.
