This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a Throwback Freebie, and I chose from their list of examples. I’m doing 10 books I loved when I began blogging. It can be fun to go back and see how your tastes and reading style has changed. I started blogging in 2014 and these are my 4 and 5 star books from that time.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is books that you have begun without finishing. I try my best to finish a book if I start it, but there are times when I simply don’t want to finish a book, and that’s something I didn’t like to do for a long time. Now, I’m fine with that. Oddly enough, these 8 books are still on my TBR.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Hidden Gems in the genre of your choosing. I went with Mysteries as it’s one of my favorite genres. I tend to read thrillers or mysteries that are targeted to adults, so I have 6 adult mysteries and 4 YA mysteries.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a back to school freebie. There were several ways I thought to do this, but a post about my personal Required Classics Reading fits my blog and current reading habits the best. The 10 books I chose are some of my favorites and I tried to pick a variety of genres and writing styles, from romance, philopsophy, mystery, and dystopian. They’re listed in publication order, from 1813 and 1985.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday’s topic is Best Books I’ve Read in 2017 So Far. I feel like I’ve been posting a lot of wrap-up related posts as it is the middle of the year, so there probably won’t be any surprises if you’ve been reading my blog recently. Out of the 16 books that I’ve read, I’ve only rated 1 of them under 4 stars, so this could have been a post including everything I’ve read!
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday‘s topic is Book Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start But Haven’t. It came at a great time because last week I posted about series I’m currently reading. A few of these I’ve mentioned before.
Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper)by Kerri Maniscalco Ruined (Ruined)by Amy Tintera The Thief (The Queen’s Thief) by Megan Whalen Turner Caraval (Caraval)by Stephanie Garber
Cruel Beauty (Cruel Beauty Universe)* by Rosamund Hodge
Outlander (Outlander)by Diana Gabaldon A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire)by George R. R. Martin In the Woods (Dublin Murder Squad)by Tana French Preacher, Volume 1: Gone to Texas (Preacher) by Garth Ennis Maus I: A Survivor’s Tale (Maus) by Art Spiegleman
There are some series on here that I feel like I would really love, but like I said last week in my book series discussion post, I need to catch up/finish one or two of those before I start any other series. My library does have all of the Outlander books as audiobooks (what a score!), so I think I will get to that one soon.
*I realize that Cruel Beauty and Crimson Bound aren’t set in the same universe, but they seem to be companions in a way, so I’m putting it in this post anyway.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is books recently added to your TBR from a certain genre. I decided on the fantasy genre as I’ve been extremely into it recently. It’s not like I needed more books on my TBR, but that’s what I get for being a book lover. I would never change it, but I would love to get some of these books read and off of my TBR!
