top ten tuesday

Older Books I Don’t Want You to Forget About! / #toptentuesday 183

For today the topic for top ten tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is outrageous things you’ve done for the love of books. I quite honestly can’t think of a thing. I’ve never skipped a meal, I’ll just eat and read at the same time. Nor have I ever camped outside a bookstore for a release.

This is why I decided to scroll through the old list on The Broke and the Bookish and pick out a different topic that I hadn’t done before. Which is a lot harder than you think after 182 top ten tuesday’s. In the end I settled on older books I don’t want people to forget about. That seems fitting with how we all seem to be talking about wanting to catch up on our backlist books.

  1. Great list! Seraphina is one that I recently rediscovered – I bought a copy years ago and still haven’t read it, but now I’d really like to cross it off my TBR soon. πŸ™‚ I’ve heard really good things about The Amulet of Samarkand, too!

  2. I hadn’t done much for the list either this week so I had to go with something else. I love this topic – i really need to do this one at some point. I actually haven’t read any of these but I’m really interested in Seraphina.

  3. Angelfall and Seraphina are two of my favorites. I don’t know if it’s because we’ve been blogging so long and there are now other books to discuss, but it never feels like people are talking about either enough. P.S. I’d be down for a buddy reread of either in the future with you.

    1. I agree. Shadow Scale came out a few months before I started blogging but I only saw a few people talking about it. Tess of the Road never ended up getting the same attention as other releases at the time either when it came out last year.

      And YES I’d love that. ❀

    1. I think that might have been on purpose. πŸ™‚ And yes read Seraphina. Its in the same world as Tess of the Road so you might come across something familiar. πŸ˜‰
