Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Read and Loved While at High School/Uni

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is a throwback freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books I Read and Loved While at High School/Uni.

It was in high school, after reading Twilight, that I rediscovered my love of reading and grabbed all the young adult books I could get my hands on. Since then my reading tastes have changed a lot and some books I read back then, like Twilight, I know I wouldn’t enjoy as much if I picked them up again today. My picks for this week are all books I read while I was in high school or university, that I enjoyed but haven’t re-read since.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Really Love and Feel I Need to Re-Read Soon

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I Really Love and Feel I Need to Re-Read Soon.

I read a lot of books each year, and while there are some books I always re-read at least once a year there are others which I haven’t picked up in ages. Looking through my bookshelves and my Goodreads read list I discovered a lot of series which I loved the first time I read them but which I haven’t picked up since. These are probably my top ten favourite series that I haven’t read in over a year which are now high on my re-reads list.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books That are Set In, or Visit, Past Times

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. It was a past and/or future themed free pick this week so I chose; Top Ten Books That are Set In, or Visit, Past Times.

I feel like this week is a bit of a mish-mash of themes. There is a whole lot of different genres mixed in there; fantasy and contemporary, time travel and magical realism. Time travel is, and I’ve mentioned this once or twice before, one of my favourite subgenres of young adult books so I had more than enough to fill this list up. However I have read, and am currently reading, some amazing books set in the past. So this list became a mixture of anything and everything I’d ever read that stepped foot in the past.
