Top Ten Tuesday is hosted each week by The Broke and The Bookish and allows us to combine our love of books with our love of lists. This week’s topic is: Throwback Freebie.

I decided to go way back to the first year I started blogging and share some of the books from that time that I really loved. I hadn’t really read a lot of young adult books before this time but I had recently read The Hunger Games and started looking for other books that were similar to that series and stumbled upon the world of book blogging. I was introduced to a lot of great books and sort of started the blog on a whim and it’s just kept going since then. It’s been a long time and it’s been kind of crazy but I’m so glad I did it and that I found these books that keep making me so excited and keep me reading and that I keep finding such amazing books. The books on this list are ones that I still think about and I’m still so glad I found. I definitely recommend them!


Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1) Scarlet (Scarlet, #1) Catching Jordan The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1) Wonder

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry: I was mesmerized by this book and have loved every book of hers since.
Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen: I LOVED this book. I’ve read it several times since and I love it every time.
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally: This whole series is fantastic and I’m so glad I decided to read it.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin: My mind was blown by this book but for some reason I still haven’t finished the series. I really hope to soon.
Wonder by R.J. Palacio: This is a book you just really have to read. I didn’t read much MG before this one but it really showed me that MG  books can be great and for everyone.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight Easy (Contours of the Heart, #1) The Truth About Forever Something like Normal Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)

The Statistical Probably of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith: This was one of the first books I read where I saw a very similar life situation to mine and it really made me love this book.
Easy by Tammara Webber: This was such a powerful book for me. I highly recommend it.
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen: This wasn’t my first Dessen but it’s still one of my favorites.
Something Like Normal by Trish Doller: I loved this and read it in one sitting. I highly recommend it and it’s still my favorite Trish Doller book.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare: I will forever love this series. I was highly skeptical going into it but quickly fell in love with all of the characters and think it’s about a million times better than her other series. I definitely recommend it.

What are some of your favorite older books?
