I didn’t read a lot of YA before I became a book blogger so really, that’s only a small part of my favorites before I started blogging! What are your favorites before you started blogging? Did blogging greatly affect what books have become your favorites now?Β

    There are a number of books that I haven’t read on your list, as well as a few that I have read. One Day was on the shortlist of my ten this week, but a lot of them got cut off. It was hard narrowing down ten I think.

    My TTT

      I am happy to see fellow One Day lovers though it got cut off my short list too. So many books to pick from I found I kept going back and changing my list.

  2. Savindi @ The Streetlight Reader

    Harry Potter definitely would make any list of mine as well :). I’ve got to get around to reading The Hunger Games at some point. Like you I didn’t read YA before I started to blog and it kind of seems like that’s all I ever read anymore! It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but I’d like to branch out more and discover other books.

    Great List Brittany!

    Some awesome choices here!! Especially Girl with the Dragon Tattoo…definitely one of my all-time faves. Started my love affair with Sweden (I want to go to there so bad). The books I read pre-blog definitely influence my current reading life…many of the books I look to review are similar in tone/genre to my past favorites.

  4. Candice

    I really need to read more of the Size 12 is not Fat series! I read the first one a while back and loved it! I also want to read the Stephanie Plum series; I tried to find the first one in the series at the bookstore over the weekend… they didn’t have it. You’ve got some great choices on your list! πŸ™‚

  5. Giselle

    Oh a lot of these would be on my list too! I read THG, The Vampire Academy series, and Dragon Tattoo series before I started my blog. I haven’t read The Gver yet (It intimidates me lol) and I just read Delirium last month >.<

  6. Loni

    Great list! I think the only difference blogging has made in terms of books I love, is that it has opened up my eyes to wider world of books. If I wasn’t blogging, I might not be reading the variety of books I read now.

  7. Tara

    I’m with you–I didn’t read a ton of YA before I started blogging. I read a few of the Janet Evanovich books and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and of course the HP series. It wasn’t until I started blogging that I became so immersed in YA, and I wouldn’t have it any other way πŸ™‚

  8. The Polished Page-Turner

    I do not know what it says about me that I have read almost ALL of these (the only one I haven’t is Spellman)! I always love seeing Meg Cabot pop up on people’s list because I am such a fangirl of hers. And of course so much love for the first 5 (Childhood/YA)

  9. Tanya Patrice

    Firstly – Love the graphics you used – so creative πŸ™‚ And 2ndly – love all the books you mentioned, some of which I read because of bloggers.

  10. Rachel

    I’m seeing Vampire Academy everywhere today. I think I’m going to have to go back and reread that book because when I read it in highschool I remember thinking it was one of the worst book I had ever read. At the same time, I was a complete book snob and probably didn’t know what I was talking about.

    1. Brittany Post author

      Haha I was book snob too!
      I went into that one being like, “Oh I am SOOOO over the vampire phase!” So I was kind of expecting to hate it so I think I was really surprised when I liked it! πŸ™‚

  11. Lily

    I LOVED just one day! Definetly one of my favourite contemporary reads ever, Dexter and Emma’s story is just beyond realistic and cute! And VAMPIRE ACADEMY!!! I’m loving seeing this series on every’s TTT i absolutely LOVE IT!

    Lily @ lilysbookblog

  12. Lauren @ Lose Time Reading

    Love your list πŸ™‚ Can you believe I just read The Giver a couple of weeks ago though, lol. I absolutely loved it though!!! HG, Delirium, VA, Millennium series… all favorites of mine as well!! Great list!!
