Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
This week’s topic is a Thanksgiving freebie, so I’m going through ten books I’m thankful for. These books helped me become the reader I am today.
1. The Best Book of Mummies by Philip Steele— For being the first book I clearly remember reading–and loving.
2. The Sister’s Grimm series by Michael Buckley— For being exactly what I needed in elementary school: darker MG than most books my school offered, while being less intense than the YA world.
3. Graceling and Fire by Kristen Cashore— For being some of the first YA books I picked up. For helping me fall in love with YA and for teaching me the beauty of good writing.
4. The Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner— For creating a story I never want to stop rereading.
5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern— For the incredible magic of the Night Circus. For proving the magic of books.
6. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray— For being the first book that hit me over the head with the power of diversity in books.
7. The Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter— For teaching me that books can have stupid covers and still contain amazing and uplifting stories.
8. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson— For having a MC that I intensely relate to.
9. The Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson— For proving that world building has no limits.
10. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein— For creating a friendship so true it reduces me to tears.
What books are you thankful for? What are your Thanksgiving plans? Have you read any of these books?
