The 10 Very First Books I Reviewed

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

So I don't know if going down memory lane is more cringe-worthy than it is heartfelt but Top Ten Tuesday is all about looking back at the very first book reviews I've ever written. I wrote a couple reviews before starting the blog. As those book reviews are lost or buried in a notebook somewhere, I figured I would just share the first ten reviews shared on this blog. Though, fun fact: it was my handwritten review of Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles that made me want to start a book blog in the first place.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is: The First Ten Books I Ever Reviewed:

Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr: This novel's fast-paced flow will keep you on your toes.  I couldn't put it down.

Echoes by Melinda Metz: This book left me with a lot of questions, which I'm sure will be answered later on in the series.

Not That Kind of Girl by Siobhan Vivian: It was surely a cute story that captured my attention with the cover and held my attention with a great story, adorable characters, and fast-paced scenes that kept me wanting more.

Dark Flame by Alyson Noel: There are so many questions on what is going to happen- how is Alyson Noel going to wrap all this up?

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins: This was the book that I had been waiting for, ever since I read the first in the series, The Hunger Games. I knew the book was going to be amazing. Suzanne Collins never disappoints.

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White: Instead of the young adult novel standards of having at least one curse word in the mix- there was none, to replace that White added "bleep" where any were needed.  That case gave it such a humorous twist that I can't wait until the second just to laugh along with Evie again.

Matched by Ally Condie: The flow of the novel went very slow for me and I found myself, on numerous times, dozing off or picking up other books to read because I just could not pick up Matched

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare: I am in love with this book. Cassandra Clare's style was, from the first page of the the book, what brought me into that world of hers. There is nonstop action and, at times, it is hard to catch your breath.  It is like a blockbuster movie in print.

Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert: This book makes me want to travel the world.  I loved this book that much!  It makes me inspired to do something, anything!  I loved it!

A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry: There is no putting down this book. This book will change your opinion of the world.  If you haven't read this novel, you are truly missing out on a lovely read.

What were some of your first book reviews?
