TTT – Books I Love That Were Written Over Ten Years Ago

Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This is definitely something I can understand and want to participate in.

I’ve been focusing on reading a lot of recent books, so finding books that I love which were written more than ten years ago took a lot of effort on my part. Here’s some of my favorite books that are at least a decade old:

  1. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness (2011).
  2. The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman (2011).
  3. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo (2012).
  4. The Last Kingdom by Bernard Cornwell (2006).
  5. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (2005).
  6. The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett (2002).
  7. Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (2000). 
  8. The Witching Hour by Anne Rice (2004).
  9. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (2008).
  10. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (2003).

What are some books that were written more than 10 years ago that you love?

  1. Great list, I actually mentioned Persepolis in my post as well! I remember reading it for my senior year of high school, and it ignited my interest in graphic novels (:

  2. For me it’d be The Hot Zone by Richard Preston; Goblet of Fire by JKR; Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares. Your list also made me think of Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice–I remember liking that one the most out of the 3 vampire books of hers that I read. I’m sure there are more but it’s the end of the day and my brain is tired. 🙂

  3. I think, as book bloggers, we tend to focus on the new and shiny books. 😀 Good list, though. I’ve only read The Hunger Games from your list, but many of the others are on my TBR. Someday.
