Welcome back to another Top Ten Tuesday, how are we all doing? Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week the guys at The Broke and the Bookish left it open to us to do a Throwback Freebie so I am bringing you 10 books I forgot how much I used to love!
My love for the Twilight Saga will never die! I was one of those hardcore Twilight girls back in the day but I owe so much to these books because they got me into reading again!
2. 10 Things We Shouldn’t Have Done
When I was in my local library the other day I saw this book and it brought back so many memories! I got this book out of the library when I was around thirteen and I was obsessed with it. I so want to reread it soon.
3. My Sister Jodie
There will probably be a number of Jacqueline Wilson novels on this list because I was completely obsessed with her when I was younger. This is such a great book for the younger readers and highlights the importance of siblings.
4. Love Divided
Guys, this book was my life when I was 11. It was my first introduction to ‘relationships’ and I learnt so much about the YA genre from Love Divided.
Kiss was my first introduction to all things puberty and sexuality. It was the first book I had come across feature a gay character and I would really recommend this to any parents who want to teach their children about growing up.
Little 10 year old Emma was extremely excited to read a novel by Judy Blume. Her novels are known for being a little raunchy and I was obsessed with this book because I had never read anything like it. I did actually reread this book last summer and I was not a fan but when I was younger it was one of my favourite novels.
7. Sundae Girl
Along with Jacqueline Wilson, Cathy Cassidy was a huge love of mine and this was my favouirte novel. It explored separation between parents and this was something I was dealing with at the time so it really gave me a better understanding of what was happening.
8. Ibiza Summer
Ibiza Summer used to be my go-to novel. I loved the forbidden romance element to it and it always got me in the mood for summer and the beginning of the holidays.
9. It’s A 50/50 Thing
I have read this novel so many times I have lost count but I was literally obsessed with it back in the day. Chris Higgins is a huge YA author in the UK and this was by far my favourite of her books. There was even a sequel which I also love.
10. Love Lessons
This is the only Jacqueline Wilson book that still remains on my shelf and there is good reason for that. Love Lessons was about a forbidden relationship between a student and teacher and I was hooked!
Thats all for this weeks Top 10. Let me know some of your throwback reads in the comments. Until next time, happy reading!
