Happy Tuesday, bloggers!
Who’s happy to go down memory lane? Blogging for almost three years, I forget where I’ve come from and what books I’ve read or even reviewed. So having this prompt is a good surprise.
Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. For this week, we’re going back in time and show off the first books we reviewed. I want a mixture of reviews I made on Goodreads and my blog. So you may see a few of my favourite books and ones I haven’t read in years.
I hope you love the post!
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War
I completely forgot I read this book. It’s been so long that I can’t remember half of it. I was getting into the zombie scene when I picked up this beauty. But it was my first and the last walker read.
Kelley’s second book holds a special space on my shelf. I bought this book in Ottawa while my class was on a trip. I loved escaping from the crowd and finding an Indigo store. I’m so glad I bought it. But I never got around to writing reviews any of Kelley’s older works though.
I never thought I’d love reading Chuck’s book. However, I loved the movie maybe a bit more than the book. Even to this day, I will not write up a review for it though. But I’ve just given my rating on Goodreads. Intimidation is a hard beast to defeat.
Nightingale is the first review I’ve ever written on this blog. I remember reading this while my Mom was in the hospital. It brought me through a rough time in my life. But I was so scared of publishing my review that I think I rewrote it about three times.
An Ember in the Ashes
I don’t think anything can compare to Sabaa’s first novel. And it took me more time to write up my review because I wasn’t positive that I could properly explain my love for this debut.
Stephanie’s debut is a trip you’ll never forget. I certainly haven’t. And I am counting down the days when we all go back to Caraval. I remember when this book first hit the blogosphere. So many reviewers were raving over it, and I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy the read. But the hype was real.
