Ten Books I Liked That Were Written More Than 10 Years Ago | #TopTenTuesday 349

At the moment of writing this I am still the young (cough) age of 34. It means that I have quite a reading life behind me. And in that reading life there have certainly been books that were written more than 10 years ago. Looking at you Terry Pratchett. So I find the prompt for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) quite a fun one to look into for some of my favorites or well remembered.

  1. I love Seraphina, too. I have a funny story that is seared into my memory about that book: I was listening to the audiobook version. Just as I finished, so enraptured with the story, I switched over to the radio just as the DJ said “Imagine Dragons. It’s Time.” I wasn’t aware of the musical group by that name at the time but felt the message was just for me. Ha!

  2. Seraphina and Howl’s Moving Castle are great choices! I still haven’t read any Robin Hobb or Cinda Wiliams Chima, but they’re on my to-read-someday list, and Guards! Guards! is on my TBR list — I had a meh experience with The Colour of Light, but GG has been recommended as a better place to dive into Pratchett.
