Top Ten Tuesday | Books for My Younger Self

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

Reading was a luxury when I was younger. I couldn’t always read the books I wanted. So I missed out on a lot of series I wish I had.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The next prompt is books for my younger self. So here are the series I wish I could read when younger.

Enjoy the post!

The Riordan Universe

I didn’t start reading Riordan’s work until this year, so I missed out on a lot of his work. But each book has taught me a lot with childhood abandonment.


Sorcery of Thorns

I had a hard time showing off my bookish love when I was younger. Yes, I was more of a punk with a slight touch of goth. But I didn’t go out of my way to show my love of novels. With this book, it shows you should celebrate your love of literature.


Grace and Fury

When I was a child, I always rebelled. If I had a book, I’d read even if people wanted my attention. I often spoke out and ran off when I got in trouble. But for years, I thought I was the trouble maker, until I read this book.


City of Ghosts

The paranormal always held a special place in my heart. But being a 90s baby, I didn’t always get the greatest paranormal series. But this one is one of the best.


Girls of Paper and Fire

I haven’t read this book yet because it contains a lot of difficult topics. But I needed that when I was younger. So dealing with sexual abuse would have helped me.

  1. Reading was a luxury for me too, I think that’s why I re-read all my books to death. I mostly found them in charity shops and got new ones with birthday money. It might also be why I’m making up for it now by being a compulsive book hoarder! 😂


  2. Part of me wishes that I was part of the “Percy Jackson” era instead of the “Harry Potter” era but I also can’t regret what those books gave me in my formative years. I still plan to read PJ though! I’d have loved it if SoT was available when I was in HS. Would’ve been a favourite for sure! Great list 🙂
