And welcome back to another fun-filled edition of Top Ten Tuesday. I’ve been blogging for about seven (7) years already. It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. While this ride hasn’t always been easy, it sure has been fun.
Today, I’m going to step back in time and tell you all about the top ten books I loved when I first started The BookBandit Blog way back in 2010.
In 2010 (if I remember correctly … I don’t necessarily have the best memory) I was in Grad School working towards my degree in Library and Information Science. Because of that I tried to balance what I was reading. Much of what I read was for various classes in which I was taking, others were pleasure reads that I managed to squeeze in.
The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart
Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson
The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey
Liar by Justine Larbalestier
Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy by Gary D. Schmidt
Wicked Girls by Stephanie Hemphill
Looking back to 2010, I read A LOT of Maureen Johnson. I also read a lot of Laurie Halse Anderson as well. I also discovered one of my now favorite authors, E. Lockhart. And I even picked up books I wouldn’t have picked up on my own, and found that stepping outside of your reading comfort zone isn’t a bad thing. And I realize, that I miss simply perusing the shelves at my local library and picking up random books to read.
All in all, 2010 was a good reading year I’d say!
