Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This weeks Top Ten is : Top Ten Favorite Books I Read Before I Was A Blogger
This week should be rather easy… I have only been blogging for 2 months now so just about EVERYTHING I read was BB(Before Blogging). So this is pretty much my favourite books ever.
- If Tomorrow Comes by Sydney Sheldon. I have mentioned this book on previous posts and now mention it once again. It was one of the first ever ‘adult’ books I picked up as a child. My mom played a big roll in what I read as it was easier to just pick up what she already took out from the library. Good thing we share a similar taste in books right?
- Sunset Embrace by Sandra Brown. Sandra is one of my favourite authors. She’s rather ‘old’. Not in the way you think, more in that I honestly haven’t met a lot of people my age that read Sandra Brown. More the house wives and grannies. And it’s a shame because she’s pretty darn awesome. Sunset Embrace manages to make your blood boil, makes you sit on the edge of your seat and stay up until 2 in the mornings to finish the book. It’s that good.
- Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. Another book I picked up thanks to my mom. We have a really strong Christian influence in our household. My gran is actually a pastor. So growing up I read a lot of Francine Rivers and Karen Kingsbury. This is a fantastic story of how love and faith can conquer anything.
- Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. How do you know if a book/series is your favourite? This is what I do. I take a walk to my book shelf. I look at the books that are the oldest mangiest looking books. These generally look like they do because I have read them so many times. And fobbed them off on so many friends just because they HAD to read it too. I cannot tell you the amount of times I have read about Harry and his friends in my childhood.
- Twilight saga by Stephanie Meyer. Jump back to what I just said. Rereading books. This is what I did with Twilight. I even have my favourite bits that I turn to every now and then just to reread that chapter.
- The Host by Stephanie Meyer. I. Loved. This. Book. I was absolutely disgusted when I found out there were no more. I was going to throw out all my lovely well read Twilight books just because I was so mad that there was no follow up to the Host. But don’t fear. It’s coming. The Soul should be released soon. Whoop whoop.
- Prisoner of Birth by Jeffrey Archer. This is a great book. I discovered Archer while touring through Britain. He is a fantastic author who manages to weave a web so intricate its impossible to put it down. Prisoner of Birth is one of them. I know for a fact I have read this book at least 5 times.
- The House of Night by PC and Kirsten Cast. A lot of people don’t like these books. And I get why. Some of the characters really tick me off. But the story is so well written and so engaging and so unique that I really love it.
- The VampireAcademy by Richelle Mead. Dimitri is sexy and broody and so darn irresistible. Rose is infuriating, fun and amazing. Action, passion. Fantastic. Well need I say more?
- Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I firmly believe that everyone should read at least one case in their life time. It’s well written, witty and extremely fun.
