I'm sorry I have been so neglectful! I didn't participate last week in TTT or FF. I mean, in my defense [and for those of you that don't know] I just got engaged last week, so I've pretty much been obsessing over all things wedding since then. :) Anyhow..
Top nine books I read before I was a blogger:
1. The Giver by Lois Lowry : This is probably one of the oldest books I can remember actually reading and enjoying.
2. Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson : Another one of those books I remember reading back in the 5th or 6th grade that just never seem to leave me.
3. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt : The last on this list that spawns from 6th grade classroom reads, I've read this several times and I am obsessed with the movie. OBSESSED.
4. My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult : Want a story that will rip your heart out? Yeah me either, but I still loved this book and it caused me to go out and buy/read almost all of Picoult's other novels which subsequently ripped my heart out.
5. Three Sisters' Island trilogy by Nora Roberts : I've read many many books by Nora, but these were the first, before I ever knew book blogging existed. Now I am a Nora-lover and gladly review any I happen to pick up.
6. The Red Tent by Anita Diamant : This is actually a biblical story told from the women's point of view. Sound boring? No way - it was fantastic. You don't need to be religious to read this or anything. If you are into history, I would definitely recommend it. Its so cool!
7. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger : Another book that ripped my soul in two. Such an amazing book and surprisingly a great movie.
8. Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan : I started reading this series years ago and fell in love and still am anticipating the next in the series, I cant wait!!
9. HARRY POTTER : Because no TTT list is complete without HP. Lets be real, for those of us who have read it [which should be everyone!!!] it's probably one of the best [if not THE best] books we have read ever, let alone before blogging. But I am glad I got to read this one before blogging because I got to really enjoy it for what it was first before feeling the pressure of needing to analyze and remember things for a review.
What are your favorite books you read before becoming a blogger?
