Top 10 Tuesday: Books I Love That Were Written Over 10 Years Ago

Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s challenge is about books I love that were written over 10 years ago!

Ok, so I know I’m a week late on this one, but better late than never! It was hard to narrow it down to 10 for this prompt because most of my favorite books were not released recently. I’m slow at getting through my TBR, and I often try to prioritize reading older books first (older in terms of how long they’ve been sitting on my shelf). Therefore, when I fall in love with a new (to me) book, it’s usually at least a few years old by that point! Without further ado, here are my top ten books that were written over 10 years ago!

  1. I had Kite Runner on my list as well and I loved Handmaid’s Tale. I’m very curious about Bel Canto and have heard really mixed but intriguing things about the story. I also hope to read Flowers for Algernon one day. Great list!
