The theme of this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is the first ten book I’ve reviewed. Considering my one year anniversary of book blogging is this week (the 24th, if my terrible memory isn’t lying to me), this topic is an awesome one. I never knew that consumer reviews were so important to authors before I found #bookstagram and the book blogging community. And now that I’m here, I live for reviewing. Even though I may scream about how hard it can be sometimes…but that’s a whole different post for later. So, without further ado, my first ten reviews on this blog:
- Caraval by Stephanie Garber – I’m actually about to start read Legendary tomorrow! I’m hoping for more sumptuous writing from Garber.
- Kingdom of Ruins by D.C. Marino – I’m actually due for a reread of this one! The author is re-releasing the book soon, so I’ll probably pick it up again then.
- Rule by Ellen Goodlett – This was my first ever ARC! I still remember losing my damn mind when I got the package with this book.
- The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell – I just reread this book and damn do I LOVE IT! I need to read the sequel, The Devil’s Thief soon.
- Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young – This book was good…but not that good. But I might have a slight bias against this one so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
- The Wicked King by Holly Black – To this day, this is still my most popular review. For a few months, I was getting 2-5 views of it a day. I loved being able to review this one!
- The Confectioner’s Guild by Claire Luana – This was my most favorite review to write! Not only did I love this book, but the review has Great British Bake Off gifs sprinkled through the whole thing and it MAKES ME HAPPY!
- Secrets of the Tally by Halie Feweks – This is one of the first books I ever reviewed for an indie author! It was such an interesting concept!
- Sea Witch by Shelley Henning – Oh boy, this book is infamous in my #bookstagram book club. #teamkingwhale forever!!
- The Backlist: Jay Kristoff – So, with my new knowledge of the importance of book reviews, I started a thing where I do short reviews of books I’ve read in the past but never reviewed. I kinda love that Jay Kristoff books were my first Backlist reviews.
Cheers to a year of book reviews and book blogging and buying more books than I’ll ever be able to read!
