Top Ten Tuesday #18



Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share bookish lists. Every week is a different themed list, and you can join in at any Tuesday.


This Week is Top Ten Books I Could Re-Read Forver

I used to re-read quite a lot when I was in my late teens, as money for new books was short. Although I don't re-read as much here are my favourite top ten:

  1. The Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix. Sabriel was my first fantasy read that I fell in love with. Growing up with out my dad, I kind of felt really closed to Sabriel, and I loved how strong she is, even in the face of something scary and dark.
  2. Lucas by Kevin Brooks. I first read Lucas for the 2005 NETBA (North East Teenage Book Awards). I was so happy when it won, as it was my favourite book out of the six we were asked to read. Again I felt a strong affinity with Caitlin. Years later, and I still cry every time I read Lucas despite knowing how it ends.
  3. The Glass Mountain by Martina Evans. Honestly the best charity shop find ever! 
  4. Matched by Ally Condie. My first dystopia love. 
  5. Naruto by Masashi Kishimoto. I often find myself self narrating in Kishimoto's style. 
  6. The Greatest Knight by Elizabeth Chadwick. William Marshal is truly an amazing person, and the first Knight. I wish his story was taught more in history lessons.
  7. Half Hidden by Emma Blair. Omg, the story is so sad! I picked it up whilst visiting and Grandma and fell in love with Blair's writing style, and the snippets of history within.
  8. Soulless by Gail Carriger. Werewolves and vampires, what more could you want? Perfect mix of steam punk and super natural.
  9. A study in Silks by Emma Jane Holloway. Magic, and mystery in the good old Victorian era.
  10. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. This list would not be complete without it. Like Sabriel, this series got me through some dark days, and I still love being able to escape to Hogwarts.

  2. I really need to read Soulless and The Old Kingdom series. At least I already own the last one.

  3. I read Matched but never got to the sequels. I'd probably have to re- read it now to know what was going on. And Gail Carriger was recommended to me once but I haven't read her yet either. I need to get moving!
